Your OEM can place your provisioning XML files in Image Update packages in ROM to be processed either during cold boot or during Image Update. During cold boot all files in all packages are processed. During Image Update only certain files, in packages that have been updated, will be processed.

An Image Update Package can contain two types of provisioning files:

Microsoft recommends that you use a three-digit version number in the name of your .provxml files in ROM, such as mxip_opr_100, mxip_opr_200, mxip_opr_300, so that there are enough ordinals to identify successive versions of the file.

Mobile operators should avoid using provxml files to override (shadow) entries in Microsoft-owned .provxml files Mxip_< package name>_< version>.provxml is imported only at cold boot when the device is initially configured. In effect, mxip_< package name>_< version>.provxml and mxipcold_< package name>_< version>.provxml are handled the same. Mxipupdate_< package name>_< version>.provxml files are imported after cold boot and when the package containing them is updated.
