    And another for the Q601: www.mouse-jp.co.jp/phone/madosma/q601/ - Translator


    As there is no emergency or "flash mode" recovery advice for these models in the WDRT at this time, I would try the standard Lumia/OEM advice from post #2 above in case you get stuck on not having your device recognized/recovered.

    <edit> This information is deprecated. The X150e is now supported by WDRT. You may still use the method below, but it is more cumbersome and no longer required. </edit>

    Confirmation has come in from member gmincca that the WDRT only supports the Americas variant (X150q). It will unfortunately flash that firmware and OS to a World variant (X150e) and leave it with a non-functional radio.

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/blu...ml#post3410033


    This user's IP shows he is in Europe so most likely he has the X150e...

    Currently I'm having a very bad experience using the WDRT.
    As I tried to use the insider build before, and that seemed locked in 'applying update' mode, I decided to roll back using WDRT
    This kinda broke my phone... as it is impossible to get out of airplane mode
    placing the sim in another phone makes it work like a charm, but it seems like my BLU doesn't want to read the sim anymore.

    I already tried several things, hard/soft resets, reapplying the firmware etc... nothing seems to help as once you're trying to switch the airplane mode off, it "flickers" between airplane and both sim slots like a madman.

    Someone has a suggestion? Key is that my BLU is an european version, so there might be some incompatibilities on the G4 channels causing this issue, but if this is the case, there is no way for me to solve this issue. My only hope is that engaging in the preview will actually reinstall the drivers solving this issue.

    Anyone else actually tried to use the WDRT without issues? just to know/warn other people

    It is now confirmed by gmincca that this method will restore an X150e World variant, which would mean do not attempt it in an X150q Americas variant... http://forums.windowscentral.com/blu...ore-image.html

    You've flashed USA variant ROM onto an EU phone. Flashing aircraft mode shows problem with radios, sim cards won't work. You need to flash with the recovery ROM (which is EU) in another post in the Blue win HD LTE forum here (kashifayed). I've done it on mine and fixed it fine.

    For BLU Win HD LTE X150q: Confirmed Recovery, with a twist.

    WDRT does NOT flash the latest official which should have been 8.1 Update 2. Instead it gave me Release software. There are 2 OTA updates to get back to official.

    The WDRT does something similar to the Lumia 920 (Mine is RM-821) it flashes Cyan and then you need to do an OTA update to get upto Denim.

    For the HTC 8X the tool recognises it when plugged in to the computer in phone mode, once it is put in boot loader mode WDRT does nothing. Won't recover the phone. (Nothing wrong with the phone, just thought I'd test that}

    ** EDIT. The first time I started WDRT and then connected my phone, that didn't work. Next I tried putting the phone in boot loader mode, then connecting it to the PC. It then loaded drivers and once they were loaded I started the WDRT and it correctly identified the phone and started to download recovery files. So it does appear to support the phone, it's just a little temperamental about which order you do things.

    All the reflections on the screen in the picture you took make it hard for me to use Translator via my phone's camera. I believe those are your phone's self test results.

    Try a Soft Reset (hold Power + Volume Down until the phone reboots and vibrates). Hopefully that gets you into the setup menu.

    If that is in Chinese when you continue and it is the setup, the first thing is language choice. For Chinese Traditional (Taiwan) the selection you want for English (US) would be 英語(美國) or for Chinese Simplified it would be 英语(美国)


    Note that if you do a reset and there is no SIM card in, you get the base language for the ROM. If you reset and have a SIM card in it reads your preferred language based on SIM.

    I have an Acer Liquid M220 Dual SIM with 512 MB RAM and 4 GB ROM. According to the information on the package it has been built April 2015 for usage in France.

    Recently I've been told that I can upgrade this phone to Windows 10 after installing the Insider app. While this eventually might be true for the model with 1 GB RAM this ended in a disaster on my phone. I was no longer able to boot nor to enter the phone's built-in recovery tool.

    Finally I found the Windows Device Recovery Tool. However, WDRT could not discover my device, so I had to manually select the phone and SKU.

    Now the big question: Which SKU to choose from the list of WW_GEN1H, PA_CUS1H, WW_GEN1 and AAP_GLOBE?
