Have a Windows Device? DO NOT install the latest update!
Redmond, Wash. — Today, Microsoft released a build that will brick your computer and phone.
The build is known as 16212 and it is known to cause all computers and phones running the Windows operating system to get stuck in a boot loop and brick.
Dona Sarkar, the chief of the Windows Insider program, issued this tweet:
Here’s how to suspend the downloads of new builds for Windows 10 Mobile.
- Open Settings
- Go to Update & security
- Choose Windows Insider Program at the bottom
- Pick Stop Insider Preview Builds
- From the menu select Pause updates for a bit
- Under the Pause area toggle the switch to On
Unfortunately, once the download begins, the only surefire way to stop it is by turning Airplane Mode on your phone, disconnecting you and your device from the internet on data AND Wi-Fi.
If you have a MacBook, like we do at Aiken Area Progressive, take solace in the fact that it is one less thing you have to worry about (since your PC does not run Windows), unless you have multiple Windows 10 Phones like yours truly does.
