    The time has passed to install WP10 on phones that are not supported with WP10.
    The 521 is not supported

    The 521 has had some users reporting a bricked phone when attempting the interop route forcing WM10 onto the phone.
    Remembering back the bricks were caused by attempting to roll back with the device recovery tool.

    I'm sorry but I don't know how to do that. I have found these links that you can try to follow to backup your phone.

    How to flash your phone
    Your phone's firmware
    The source thread

    We are not responsible if this doesn't work for your phone. Again, good luck.

    Threads Merged.

    User... Please do not create multiple threads on your issue. It actually works against you as any advice gets scattered around and a coherent conversation cannot develop as easily...
