So I took the plunge and updated my Lumia 925 to Windows 10 Mobile 10166. There's a few bugs here and there but overall I'm loving it. Things like better support for multiple identities, i.e. MS account and also Azure AD (Office 365) accounts and OneNote discovering notebooks nicely across both OneDrive and SharePoint online. Outlook is great, as are the other Office apps, and directly printing from Word to our IP printer with no set up required! Groove music is nice, and of course there's Edge. I connected a bluetooth mouse to it too, very cool how the phone adapts to mouse mode automatically and shows scroll bars, and allows text selection on Universal Apps etc. Just wish the phone had mirracast support so I could play with using it as a desktop :-)

One issue I'm having though that hopefully someone can help with. If I go to Settings --> Update and Security --> For developers it just crashes out and sends me back to the Start Screen. Anyone experienced this or know of a way to resovle? I have given my phone a reset to start fresh with no baggage since the upgrade.

I can access "For developers" until I actually enable it and reboot. At this point, it just crashes when selecting "For developers" and all the action bar icons start flashing. Tried hard resetting multiple times.

I've had the flashing action centre icons too, anyone know what that means?

So I got it working by doing backup --> reset --> restore.

I wanted to test running Android apps on it. Followed the guide here, and got a couple of apps working before the same symptoms came back, can't get into developer settings again.

I was impressed however at how well the apps ran. I installed the FitBit app, but it doesn't seem to be able to use bluetooth yet as I guess MS haven't got that working in this build. I also installed the N-Central app and that works flawlessly. Pretty cool stuff. If MS executes this properly it'll be bye bye to the app gap issue.
