    Hello all,

    I'm in desperate need of help. I've read and followed several forum posts, including the 'stickied' one here:

    Fix for bricked 920's after reset. Flash Process defined inside!

    on the fix for a bricked Lumia 920. I've sold my AT&T Cyan Lumia 920 on EBay--in preparation for getting my Lumia 1020, which I preordered yesterday :) I always do a factory reset on my phones, so I did that and when it rebooted, I got the infamous cog wheels spinning. I've tried several things including trying to flash the RM-820 rom back onto the phone. I've gotten pretty far in the process; however, when I go to start the recovery process, I get an error indicating:

    C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products\RM-820\C6ADC1BD_RM820_059N5T3_1232.2109.1242.1001_180.vpl has invalid signature.

    I've tried different color variants (Black, White, Cyan, etc.), but it always errors on the .vpl file with that 'invalid signature' error.

    I've kept the EBay buyer up-to-date on this unexpected issue, but I'd really like to get the phone functionally ASAP so I can ship it to him.

    Can anyone help me? I've posted several replies--including to the 'stickied' forum post mentioned above--but have received any replies.

    Thanks,
    Norris

    I'm not sure about your error.
    But if you're still having the spinning cogs you can try the below link. The below link helped quite a few with the spinning cogs issue.

    Much thanks to ktl88 for posting the thread on: Stuck on running gears for over 8 hours!! Nokia Lu... - Nokia Support Discussions! This worked like a charm and resolved my issue. I had followed similar steps in a different posting I had read, but apparently, I was not giving it long enough to complete, so I thought I'd need to flash a ROM back on to my phone. By following the steps in this thread and waiting a little over an hour, my phone finally restarted and booted up to the initial windows phone setup screen. A lot of people in the thread indicated it took them 5 - 20 minutes, so mine took much longer than that, but it definitely works!!! Thanks again.

    None of these have helped me, can you be more specific in the process of what buttons get pushed when?
