    Download the Nokia Software Recovery Tool and flash WP8 back on it. It's a very easy process. Good luck.

    Yes, use this: FAQ - FAQ - How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Nokia - UK

    Also you're the first person that I've heard who had an issue where they said the warranty was gone because of the developer preview. I would contact Nokia or MS direct.

    I have tweeted to @NokiaIndia and they said yes, the warranty will be void if you update to Dev preview.

    Happened to me too. I had crazy issues with my 1520. Actually sent mine in and the repair center sent it back to me with no repairs completed because I was running the dev preview. I simply flashed WP8 back onto it and sent it back in. All was good after that.
    I spoke with a rep there who told me that in the agreement for the dev preview, it states that the warranty is indeed voided while running WP8.1 preview. She also said that the warranty is reactivated once the official release is updated to your phone running the preview. I never actually verified to see if the agreement says anything about the warranty, but it's probably really in there somewhere. :)

    It doesn't say it will be void, it says it Could be. I think this tends to be based on the individual interpretation, as I have heard others day they sent a phone in running the preview and Nokia didn't say anything about it.

    You're probably correct. I've heard people say the same thing. I just wanted to relay what happened to me on to the original poster.
