    Today I read that for Cyan update we need to Downgrade to WP8 first for the fresh 8.1 update. I was updating the phone. After download the Firmware was being flashed. It was stuck at 1% for 5 mins and after that it failed and the phone got bricked. I tried the the another option that says 'My phone doesn't startup ir respond'. But that also didn't work. Really don't know why a software recovery tool bricked my phone :(

    Now please let me know that I need to go to Nokia Care or there is any other solution ?

    Nothing happens. The recovery tool said to press power and volume down and wait till vibrate. That didn't even work. :(

    Got a statement from Nokia Care. That are saying that we are flashing the ROM but it is not working.
    They need to replace a part for that

    The same happened to my 620. I received it from Nokia Care today. It turns out the board is dead and needs replacement, which will cost me more than half of what I paid for the phone itself.

    I guess I'll wait for the 730.

    Nokia Care in Chandigarh said the same thing. I tried many mobile repair shops but none was able to recover it. It feels so bad that Nokia's Software bricked the phone. Let's wait for tomorrow. #MoreLumia

    I googled and found that JTAG can un-brick my phone (apparently it's a software problem; the bootloader is corrupt).

    Found this guy on xda -
    Jtag service in india | Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 | XDA Forums

    I've sent it to the guy through a relative in Mumbai. Hoping for the best. :)
