For registration, we recommend using a standard Windows Live ID account to log in to Microsoft.
A new page will appear. We go down and accept the terms of the license agreement. Click "Send."
Now go to the Windows Phone Store and download the program to evaluate the new OS.
After installing the application, click “Get preview builds”.
In the next window you need to log in to your Microsoft account.
After authorization, you should choose the type of download. We recommend Insider Slow so as not to risk it, as a quick update can cause a number of errors.
After that, the version of the update (the very first line) appears in the Windows Insider program. You need to go to the gadget settings, select "Update". This starts the search for updates. Installation will last up to 30 minutes or more.
If you did not like the new operating system or have critical errors, you should connect the device to a PC and download the Windows Phone Recovery Tool and restore Windows Phone 8.
