  1. The "Your Phone" App on Windows 10 crashes


    I've seen this question asked in 2019 but it was locked and left unanswered.


    I've just installed "Your Phone" app in Windows and on my Samsung S8+, which the other user also had. The Windows app appears fine on the taskbar with notification numbers. If I right click and open Notifications, Photos, or 'Your Phone, the app opens fine in Windows. However, if I try to open 'Messages' the window opens briefly then crashes. The same happens if I try to open 'Setting'.


    At the same time, the Android app Your Phone Companion - Link to Windows appears to be connected and sending photos and notifications fine. But if I open the Android app it just says "Check your PC: We're checking one more thing on your PC before we ask for a final permission."


    Windows 10 is up to date as of November 20, 2020.


    I have followed all instructions including all permissions on both phone and Windows 10. I have seen that many others have had this problem since mid-2019, but I have yet to find anybody providing a solution.


    Has the problem been identified and is there a fix yet?

    :)

    I think I'll put a list of people's favourite apps in the OP, starting with my own until I get some suggestions, but you can take a look at the Windows Phone app store at the top apps to see what's popular http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store

    You are both now added, welcome! *Toast :toast:

    why is there a windows 10 app for netflix?

    Yes, it's no longer the windows phone OS. It's just Windows 10. And yes, the app is perfect for the phone.

    The "Your Phone" App on Windows 10 crashes

    Installing Windows 10 on Lumia 920

    I have a Lumia 920 mobile phone.
    Found a list on the net with compatible phones that support Win 10. Mine is on that list.
    Can't upgrade with the usual way.
    Found help on this official website of developers for Windows Phones. It's a step by step no brainer thing. Most people are doing it. Except me. I can't get past point 6. HOWTO: Install Windows 10 for Phones on Non-supported devices (and other hacks)

    "6.Connect to the same WiFi that your PC is on. Edit the settings for the WiFi connection to turn on the Proxy and set it to use the PC’s IP address and enter 8877 for the port "

    7. Open Internet Explorer on your phone and navigate to http://[pc.ip.add.ress]:8877 where [pc.ip.add.ress] is the IP address of the PC running the WPInsidersHacks app

    No idea what this means.I guess i need to access the router and modify some settings in there. Some guy on the forum told me " think he means to use the local IP address of the pc. Go to cmd and type ipconfig and look for ipv4 address. Should be somethin like 192/......"

    I did connect my phone as always via wi-fi to my router. But i have no ideea how to use that proxy or how to make my phone have the same Ip as computer. I did start WPInsiderHacks app on pc. This is what it looks like

    Theres also this official Windows Phones
    It says this :
    1. Download the Windows Insider app.
    Press ... > about > make sure Sys free space is 300MB or more.
    If there isn't enough space, make full reset with Windows Phone Recovery Tool.

    Code:
    upwp10.chinacloudapp.cn:7777

    Download and install certificate.
    3. Edit WiFi connection, enable Proxy

    Code:
    upwp10.chinacloudapp.cn
    7777

    4. Open Insider app, click get builds
    5. You will get Enroll page, do not Enroll yet!
    6. Switch to WIFI settings, turn off proxy.
    7. Switch to Windows Insider app and now you can enroll for Windows 10 Technical Preview.
    Choose Fast option.
    8. Check Settings > Phone update.
    If it can't find updates, you may need to reboot your phone and enroll again (without a proxy now).


    Same thing with the proxy. Anyways the more detailed steps on the DEV forum are much better i think .Cuz they put out more info on how to do it.

    Can anybody help me with step 6 ?
