Dear OP . after Hard reset there's no need to Re-Deploy the NDTKSvc . Updates won't revert by hard reset . only if you flash your phone you need to do it again . So you have to keep going from step 14, I mean even no interop unlock needed

Is Creators Update fully compatible with Acer Liquid Jade Primo? Are there known issues? On Anniversary Update build 14393.1066 it works very well

In another forum (drwindows.de) an user has reported a problem with the display that remains always on:
"creators update läuft ansich top,ohne probleme, das problem ist der bildschirm geht nicht aus.das display ist immer an und zieht den akku leer.Deswegen musste ich es leider deinstalieren.
falls jemand ne lösung für das problem hat,immer her damit soft und hard reset bringt schonmal nichts
."
Google translate: " Creators update runs ansich top, without problems, the problem is the screen is not from the display is always on and pulls the battery empty. Therefore, I had to deinstalieren it unfortunately. If someone has ne solution for the problem, always here so soft and hard reset brings schonmal nothing."

Is it true?

I'm already on AU but I've the old 14393.1066 build installed months ago via Windows Insider. Now I've just re-entered again as insider, checked for updates, but nothing comes down... Should I wait 1 day before to get the new cumulative update (14393.1158)?
Is the 14393.1358 build available in Release Preview Channel without using Interop Unlock?

On the slow ring my Acer Liquid Jade Primo sees Creators Update (build 15063.2) without using any hacks. Is it safe to install it?
I tried CU (the same build 15063.2) months ago but the phone didn't restart anymore :(

I did all the operations correctly as proposed at the first message of this topic. The phone downloaded the 15063.297 version but now it does not boot. It's the same as updating via slow ring. Any help here?
Thanks!

I noticed that after the update to AU, the phone boots with the screen completely black, you don't see the boot sequence, but it's working, so you have to wait a bit and then press the power button 2 times in order to turn the screen on. This happens only once, after the OS update.
Does CU do the same strange thing or doesn't boot at all? When I tried CU months ago, and verified that it didn't boot, I didn't try to press the power button 2 times :)

    Well ashly i dunno. Just attach it for has to be. Try it by yourself. Right now im try to install correctly CU for 3rd day and it angry me. I cant get through black screen in any way.

    Ok.
    The main point for me was, PATIENCE. Try several times to start from black screens.

    What I did was:

    After restore factory, update all possible with OTC and default acer settings. No sim installed.
    No microsoft user account. Skip that step.
    When no more updates, install interop as tutorial, sets strings as 950 DS (not XL)
    wifi disable (to avoid OTA)
    Start OTC.

    The main problem after install CU, when reboots, black screen.
    I've keep cable connected.
    Had to force soft reboot, or press power for several seconds, or put modes for "!" screen or to flash mode screen before reboot again, and even do a hard reset one time. (power and on acer press vol down, or on acer press vol up).
    On screen with ! (didnt know the name, sorry), sequence vol up, down, power, down to do a hard reset
    Keep trying to power

    BUT I've start OTC and respond. So, i presume that the problem is that no screen only, but phone is responsive.
    Then, OTC updates to last version of CU.
    Wait at least 30 minutes and the phone restarts.

    The power affair stills, then on Acer press power twice, or press power (keep pressing or press several times) till see the battery charging icon, and then, with one power press some time starts windows logo.
    After that, on first boot, screen is unresponsive, wait, lock and unlock a couple of times (with flip cover is better than with power button)
    wait a little more (a minute), then can open interop, restore settings, reboot, wait, at least a couple of minutes (is still unresponsive), then reboot again (no need soft reset, just power down and power on).

    Is slow to start again, but does.

    Then, it works flawless (or at least it does for this 3 days that I'm using it as main phone, waiting and hoping for andromeda)

    That is what I did. On 2 phones. (after several tries to find how, but this last one works)

    Hope that you can use it.

    Can ya descrie step by step guide from scratch (WDRT) please. I ve try 3 times to install CU and always get black screen as OTA as OTC.

    Hi again.

    I've installed this. The hadrware diagnostics cand run because is for HP, and where I enable double tap?

    Hi everybody.

    I've follow this tutorial on 2 jade primo, and using the strings on 950 XL DS ends in a bricked phone with CU.
    Using Lumia 730 works with AU, but can't install voices in mexican spanish.

    Then, I've installed with
    Lumia 950 DS
    PhoneHardwareVariant : RM-1118
    PhoneManufacturer : MicrosoftMDG
    PhoneManufacturerModelName : RM-1118_15207
    PhoneModelName : Lumia 950 DUAL SIM
    and works like a charm, with CU 10.0.15254.490

    Using OTCUPDATER.


    Had problems with: lock screen always on, 10 seconds delay on detect empty second sim, and car bluetooth did not connects as phone, only as music device.
    That was corrected by itself after 2 reboots.
    Now works perfect. 3 days in production as main phone. No hangs, no reboots.

    The main problem that I have is that can't set double tap to wake.
    Wake works perfect with flip cover anyway, but will be great if someone could give me a clue about what to do to enable it.

    Thanks in advance.

    After the upgrade from AU to CU, connect your phone to a PC via USB and launch OTC Updater, so you'll get the latest build of CU:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=56726
    With this newer build of CU, it should boot with success. :good:
