Microsoft rolls back Windows Mobile 10586.29 Update after several reports of failure

Microsoft had unveiled the Lumia 950 and the 950XL amidst much fanfare a couple of months ago and now the new Lumia flagships are available across multiple sales channels and vendors. Microsoft had rolled out a Windows 10 Mobile update numbered 10856.29 this month and although the update was successfully seeded to most of the Lumia 950 and the 950XL users, some were left in the lurch. These folks were getting a low storage notifications and the update was subsequently stuck at zero percent progress.


According to the Microsoft Forum it has been duly investigating the issue and it will be rolling out an “update” to fix the update, until then the 10589.29 update will be pulled down from the servers.

The issue caused some serious repercussions for the users as they could not even roll back to the previous versions. Users are also facing a similar problem when they are trying to download app updates with some users even complaining about the low storage notification popping up in spite of 20GB of free space. If you are on the original build on the OS you wouldn’t be having anything to roll back on.

While for some users a hard/soft reset is helping tackle this problem a majority of the others are still helpless. Microsoft was quoted as

“We are aware of issues related to the recently published Windows 10 Mobile update, including update not being offered, update appearing to be stuck at 0% and pesky low storage notifications. The team is working on fixes and improvements to the upgrade experience in the short term and with feature releases. In the meantime, we have unpublished the 10586:29 update for Windows 10 Mobile from our public update servers while we work through these reports.”

Microsoft has further assured that users who have already downloaded the update will not be affected in any manner whatsoever.
