Microsoft yesterday accidentally released a new build for Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 Mobile for Insiders. The company released an internal build 16212 for some PCs and Mobile devices. The released Windows 10 Mobile build 16212 causes the Mobile to enter a boot loop which is to be resetted using the Windows Device Recovery Tool.

Users will have to loose all the data and files stored on the Mobile if the device has been reset. The Builds are currently being downloaded for all Rings Fast, Slow and Release Preview Rings. Some users who are not a part of the Windows Insiders Program have also been reporting that they are able to see an update available for download on their devices.

Windows Insider Chief Dona Sarkar in tweet has asked users not to install the build and if done need to reset their devices via Windows Device Recovery Tool.

It is advised for users on Windows 10 PC and Mobile to not download the build 16212 since it may brick your devices especially Mobile. The workaround for users who have the build ready to be installed on their Mobile is to change the device’s time to 2050 which should ultimately cancel the installation.
