    Over-the-cable Updater tool for Windows Phone 8.1 & Windows 10 Mobile


    Microsoft has released a new Over-the-cable Updater tool for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Mobile 10 that updates eligible Windows phones to the latest version of WIndows 10 Mobile, and eliminates the need to install every update individually in order to get a device up to date.

    Supported Operating System
    Windows 10 , Windows Phone 8.1

    The full set of requirements can be found in the included ReadMe. Key requirements: - device must be able to connect to a PC via USB - device with PIN lock must be unlcoked before using the OTC Updater - device must be in Airplane mode before using the OTC Updater - PC running a supported Windows client OS with latest service pack installed - PC must have a minimum of .NET 4.0 installed - PC must have Internet connectivity and be able to connect to WU.



    OVER-THE-CABLE UPDATER FOR WINDOWS PHONES README

    Over-the-cable updater for Windows phones application summary
    The Over-the-cable updater for Windows phones is an Over-the-cable (OTC) update solution built to help Microsoft enterprise customers update their devices to the latest version of Windows 10 Mobile (Windows 10 Update History) without requiring devices to connect to Windows Update (WU) to scan or download updates. The tool is an application that can be run by double-clicking or via the command line. Update payloads are downloaded to the PC and are portable, meaning the payloads can be copied to other PCs for later use. However, all PCs running the OTC updater must be able to connect to Windows Update to download payloads.

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update: Added support for /batch - Updates connected devices with no prompting

    Device Requirements

    • Devices must be able to connect to a PC via USB. For example, if the device has disabled USB connectivity through Assigned Access or a Windows 10 Mobile policy setting, it is not possible to update the device using the Over-the-cable updater.
    • If a device has a PIN lock, it must be unlocked before using the Over-the-cable updater.
    • Devices must not have internet connectivity - No active SIM, CDMA network or Wi-Fi is needed. Put devices in Airplane Mode prior to using the tool.
    • Devices need to have a retail version of Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10 Mobile.
      • If the device is part of the Windows Insider Program then remove the device from the program
      • If the device is part of the RS2 Windows Insider Program then flash the device back to a retail version of Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10 Mobile using the Windows Device Recovery Tool
    • Devices must not have an active update session already in progress. To check the state look at Settings->Phone Update. If the device has an update in progress, put the device in Airplane Mode and wait for the update to complete.
    • The tool cannot be used to update a device while the phone is in the Out of Box Experience (OOBE). This is true for OTA updates as well.
    • The tool cannot update phones on device that has a battery level less than 40%. This is true for OTA updates as well.
