    I asked windows phone support if they will fix the issues with the update for HTC 8x, or give a recovery file. They told to try with recovery tool - which doesn't work. Told them that there the recovery tool do not work. This is their answer :

    I don't think they will fix it soon...

    I did reset to my phone and didn't changed any options like region, language, Wifi during recovery and after this the restart loop is delayed by almost 30-45 minutes.

    Some one should try this option and let others know if this is not happened in fluke.

    Here's a solution you may want to try out. Again many people on Microsoft forums are claiming this has reverted their phones to Windows Phone 8.1.

    [WP10] Solution for bricked HTC 8X after windows phone 10 upgrade | Jaspers' Weblog

    According to this page, you're downloading an HTC 8X ROM which is I believe from Russia (cuz you're downloading it from Yandex)

    Follow the instructions on page and you may get to 8.1.

    I would also suggest you that you don't rush cuz there is still hope that Microsoft will push an update to fix reboot issue.

    On the other hand I don't know how will you download update if phone reboots itself in the middle of downloading.

    On the third hand waiting for HTC to deliver ROM files to Microsoft is probably not going to happen as thing stands currently.

    @GabeAul and @Windows are still ignoring questions about non-Lumia devices.
    Thank you, THANK YOU!!! That was the ONLY rom that worked on my HTC 8x! I have an unlocked EU version (bought on UK).

    How do you download this rom so fast? It is dripping at 10 kb/s at most, eta 2 days.

    Yeah, the download speed is cringe worthy.

    I tried 2 other RUUs and those did not work. Hopefully this one does, as my phone model it matches the other phones that it worked with(Unlocked, EU).

    I downloaded from OneDrive (it has a link to onedrive on that guide). Took me 10mins at most.

    It worked for me but I CAN'T update the rom... I search for updates, it has one to do but says "it can't be opened". This rom also has an app that I never saw before "search something"... Don't trust this rom for "final use". But, for now, it is what it is and at least i don't have a brick anymore.

    I get error while trying to install update as well. The app is nothing to worry about just uninstall it.
    I don't think it is possible to change important things in roms. Maybe a carrier added app?

    I don't think we need to worry about update issue, many WP users have it.

    It's hilarious that today WinSupport announced they are re-branding to #LumiaHelp after the absolute lack of help they provided any of us with today. Their answer to me was "check the forums". Thanks support!

    Do you want to turn ur phone into a brick? Because thats how you turn your phone into a brick.
    I always wanted a brick for a phone. But really tho, is there a way to not reset my phone and stay on 8.1?

    Are any of the phones that were successful in the flash Batabole posted tied to a provider or all unlocked? I couldn't get the NBF file to work, Error 296.

    My phone is unlocked...

    I'm still hopping for the ROM we should have from the official recovery tool...

    Funny thing is, I had Here Drive + installed on my HTC (installed long ago!) and now it says that the app is not available ... good.

    Has anyone seen any official response from Gabe Aul on what Microsoft's plan is to resolve all the bricked and or rebooting HTC 8X phones? It has been two full days now since the Windows 10 disaster and you would think there would be some type of acknowledgement of their error and a statement on what they are trying to do to get the mess fixed.

    Ah okay mine is tied to the company and didn't work. I read that might be a cause for the error in trying to use the ROM. :(

    Yup, he added a OneDrive link afterward, noticed it after hitting refresh. I feel like an *****, been downloading for 9 hr and only at 25% with the old link. The OneDrive finished in 2 mins.

    Later Edit:
    And done, back on 8.1. Took 2 attempts to flash but it went through till the end the 2nd time.

    I don't feel much of a surprise on hearing this, it makes a lot of sense if HTC decides to abandon it, apparently almost all their development are focusing on Android devices, yet still yields a extremely poor market share.

    Also I heard some source indicating HTC would still intend to develop a Win10 Mobile device, for that I won't be of any surprise, since HTC still develop windows devices to this day, and still not officially announce that they would totally abandon Windows phone OS, that leaves some possibilities for future Win10 mobile devices from HTC. Still since this is unconfirmed, I shall take it as rumor.........

    How long have you been running since the restoration point without random reboots?
    As long as I don't reboot the phone, I need to repeat the process of doing a reset again. Been over 12 hours no reboots till now :)
