    so i had a htc update... accepted and then got spinning cogs on my screen, for about 14 hours now. anybody else had this? i have tried a hard reset and it does not work, its like the phone isn't able to turn off. if i turn it off it just comes back on itself.

    i think you might have bricked it, try sending it back to warranty.

    Try to do hard reset and soft reset again and again.
    Soft reset>Hold volume down button +lock button(hold for 10-15 second until it vibrate)
    Hard reset again>Hold volume down button +lock button +camera button(hold for 10-15 second until it vibrate)

    If a soft and hard reset fails get direct to the HTC or return it for a replacement.

    Try the Lumia 920 fix. Take out your SIM and try again. Hope that works, because I am waiting on the same update here :D

    First take out your sim card

    1. Soft reset>Hold volume down button +lock button(hold for 10-15 second until it vibrate)
    2. wait for nokia logo and press Volume up>>Volume down>>Power button>>Volume down
    3.if the cogs still appear after 5 mins, do the soft reset again at the Nokia logo screen. ( i did the soft reset about 5 times in a row and after 5-10 minutes it came back to life)
