Microsoft accidentally released internal Windows 10 development builds

Microsoft Accidentally Releases Windows Update That Bricks Devices: Is There A Fix?

Also, it is said that the speaker may have initially been created to be a part of the Windows 10 PC's ecosystem, but it has since been developed in a way that it can function independently as well.

Apparently the unfinished build pushed to PCs contains a number of "usability" issues - more so than normal with a test build - but there are no show-stopping gremlins or anything critical to fret over.

Alternatively, you can wait until Microsoft releases another build which won't be happening for any of the rings in this week. As it stands, Microsoft says only a small portion of Insiders were affected by this. The immediate result of the update was bricked PC/laptops and smartphone running on Windows 10.

Some users reported that their Pcs/laptops/mobiles went to a boot loop after being updated this internal build 16212 PCs.MSPowerUser also reported that the Build 16212 causes Windows 10 Mobile devices to enter a boot loop, requiring users to reset their device using the Windows Device Recovery Tool.

Builds from some of our internal branches were accidentally released for PC and Mobile. After the mix-up, officials said they would not be releasing any new builds this week after all. Sarkar tweeted that these builds might download due to the earlier error but should not install on "public" devices.

In response, Microsoft issued an apology and offered some tips to help users who had installed the build to recover. The accidental release of Windows 10 Build 16212 has created buzz among Windows Phone users as if you install the build on your phone, it will get stuck in a reboot loop and you will need to flash the phone. Although it will be buggier than the builds Insiders in the Fast Ring normally receive, you can keep it installed on your system according to Microsoft and it will be updated once a newer build is released. But you'd have to be daft to run an Insider build on a 16GB tablet too, so all is fair and all that.

If you're one of the Windows 10 users who've received the update builds and downloaded the same to instantly gain access to the latest features, then Dona Sarkar has some tips to help you get back to running your stable build.
