Upgrade Bug could mean Windows Phone Insiders would need to revert to WP8.1 before getting next build of W10M Insider Preview

We have been waiting longer than we expected for the next build of Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview, and today on twitter Gabe Aul revealed why.

The upgrade bug of course hit many 10080 users, meaning many had to hard reset their devices.  Given this, I suspect most Insiders are now more than prepared to revert back to Windows Phone 8.1 to get the upgrade, and would rather have the build now than a week later.

Gabe also notes:

Update 2:

Update 1: It seems Gabe has settled on pushing out the update: 

This means those on 10080 will not be offered the upgrade, and can either wait a few weeks and get the next Insider Preview build, or revert their phone back to 8.1 using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool and then access build 1136.

What will our readers who are Insiders do? Let us know below.
