New #Windows10 Mobile Build 10512 is now available to download.

Microsoft has released a new Build 10512 for Windows 10 Mobile.
It has been a month since the last build 10166 was released and today we get a new build with quite a few improvements and bug fixes, here is the list...

  • General improvement in overall stability and performance.
  • You can now set the Lock screen and background image from within the Photos app.
  • We fixed an issue where apps installed on SD cards weren’t working after a reboot.
  • We have improved Latvian and Chinese inputs.
  • We have made improvements to the Kid’s Corner tile layout.
  • We have improved reliability of Data Sense notifications.
  • Modified Shape Writing algorithm to be less aggressive in suggesting contact names over common words.
  • Resolved an issue where Camera would not launch when the phone was locked.
  • We fixed an issue where notifications for incoming text messages weren’t appearing.
  • We fixed an issue where the touch screen wouldn’t be responsive after ending a phone call on some devices.
  • And we fixed an issue where folder tiles have obviously overlapping text.
But with unfinished software, this build also comes with a few bugs as well, be sure to read these one by one to be sure if you want to upgrade to this build, because judging from the issues listed below, some of them could be deal breakers...

  • obile hotspot doesn’t work in this build. When sharing the Internet from your phone using Mobile Hotspot, devices will fail to get a valid IP address from your phone and will show no internet access.
  • Two-factor authentication for your MSA with a phone number doesn’t work in this build. If you reset your phone and go through the first run experience, you won’t be able to input more than 2 characters for validating phone or text authentication. If you have a secondary email for two-factor authentication – you can choose that. As a workaround, add secondary email for two-factor authentication.
  • Some phones might spend a long time in the post update migration experience – just let the phone sit and it should complete this migration.
  • Apps that use background audio such as Groove, Podcast, Pandora, etc. will crash when launching after receiving an app update from the Store. Rebooting the device will resolve this issue.
  • Some phones with a large number of tiles pinned to the Start screen may get stuck in a state where the device shows “Loading…”; the device will need to be reset or rolled back to Windows Phone 8.1 using Windows Phone Recovery Tool.
  • Some apps may fail to update through the Store with the error code 0x80073cf9; uninstalling the application and reinstalling it will resolve this issue.
  • The Movies & TV app will not work in this build (video playback is currently broken).
Like I said, some of these known issues could be deal breakers, if you use your phone as a mobile hotspot and rely heavily in this function then you might want to skip this build.
Also, you might have to revert to Windows Phone 8.1 (using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool) before upgrading to the latest build, only if your phone gets stuck with the "loading" message on the start screen.
Then, one major issue is the fact that video playback from the Movies&TV app wouldn't work. This could be a deal breaker for some who regularly rent or purchase movies or TV shows from the app.

As far as we know, no new features have been announced but expect some to be unearthed as users start using the new build in the next day or two.

As usual, I will be uploading a video soon with an in depth look at what this new build offers. So stay tuned.
