    My phone has been stuck on the gears for several hours, I'm starting to get worried because my phone died a couple times and I fear this interrupted the factory reset. Will my phone be fine or should I be worried?

    Hi and welcome to windows central forum.

    Did you charge your phone prior to hard reset? maybe your battery ran down adn a shut down interrupted the hard reset.

    If you are unable to restart teh process or the device displays some emotion like a sad face :( you should them turn to Windows Device Recover Tool (W.D.R.T.) DOWNLOAD IT FROM HERE:> https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...mobile-devices

    Install the app and connect your device, the installer will then download the installation files and flash your device to a working state. :)
