Windows 10 Mobile OS upgrade officially begins rolling out... to select Windows Phones (see list of device that will and those that wouldn't)

It is finally happening. Windows 10 Mobile OS has begun rolling out to a select number (subset) of Lumia models and other Windows Phone devices.

In an official blog post, Microsoft revealed that Windows 10 Mobile OS has begun rolling out to a subset of Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The devices are:

  • Lumia 1520
  • Lumia 930
  • Lumia 640
  • Lumia 640XL
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 532
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 540
  • Lumia 635 1GB
  • Lumia 636 1GB
  • Lumia 638 1GB
  • Lumia 430
  • Lumia 435
  • BLU Win HD w510u
  • BLU Win HD LTE x150q
  • MCJ Madosma Q5
So if you own any of these devices you should be able to update to Windows 10 Mobile. To update you will need to use this direct LINK to install the Update Advisor app and after installing it, check the box to "enable Windows 10 upgrade" (this process reminds me of Windows 10 PC upgrade process).

After you check the "enable" box, go to your Phone Settings>Phone Update,  check for updates and watch the magic happen.

The update build version is 10586.164, this is the same Windows 10 Mobile build that was released a little over a week ago.

Here are the Lumia devices that wouldn't be getting the W10M upgrade, at least not yet...

  • Lumia 1020
  • Lumia 920
  • Lumia 820
  • Lumia 720
  • Lumia 620
  • Lumia 520

These older Lumia devices aren't on the list and I'm not entirely sure when or if they will get the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade. It looks like Microsoft is having a hard time getting it to work flawlessly on these now legacy devices. But this is just the first wave, a second wave should include some of these devices that are left out, the problem is we don't know when that will happen.
