Known Issues in This Build
Following are the known issues with their workarounds in this new build:
- You will be unable to install additional languages, keyboards, and speech packs on your phone for the next few weeks. If you have existing languages, keyboards, and speech packs installed, they will carry over when you update to new builds. You just can't install any new ones.
