    Hi, I've been reading these forum for quite sometime now, and I've always read about phones been bricked, or reverting back to 8.1... Some said they used Windows phone recovery tool, while others said they used Lumia software recovery tool.. Which leads me to ask: Is there a deference between the two? And if so, which would be best for: Unbricking a Windows phone/reverting to 8.1 from wp10

    Use Windows phone recovery tool for lumia and HTC phones that runs Windows 8 or later. Use lumia recovery tool for all other nokia phones

    Only Lumia recovery worked with my 830 going back from wp10 to 8.1

    The only difference which is sure is that the WPRT is only for Lumia phones (wp8 onwards) and the m8. (and other wp8 will be added) and the LSRT can also be used for other Nokia phones but not for the M8.
    And indeed for some the WPRT did "not" work but the LSRT did. There is however no "prove" why one is better then the other.
