    An 8X? You serious? Get a new phone.
    Buy me one :)

    Getting the "INVALID VENDER ID" error, as with any other rom I tried so far. T-Mobile branded EU phone.
    Looks like it only Works with unbranded. I'm still hopping that Microsoft take care of branded versions aswell as unbranded

    Some how My phone started working. After that I did hard reset twice with no connectivity and i didn't log in. Now the only issue is with the store. it is giving me a 0x803f7000 error when trying to download anything. So far Phone hasn't rebooted for past 5 and a half hours but battery is draining like anything.

    UPDATE : The moment I changed the Location and restarted. I am Getting the message "This device has been locked for security reasons. Connect your device to the power source for at least two hours, and then try again"

    And those who have successfully updated so far check Microsoft office in phone it is more like that of desktop app. I compared it with my friends Lumia 920 and the one we have is far better along with most of the windows 10 elements of the desktop are present in our devices because the build is not able to differentiate if its a phone, a tab or a pc ;).

    Nothing. I tweeted to him again asking if there is any indication of a fix. I am so livid right now, I don't have anything other than a severely old android phone so I'm stuck with this rebooting brick right now.

    Thank goodness. Figuring out a solution is going to be really, really complicated.

    Do they figure out a way to get back to Windows 8.1 that they have little control of because of HTCs involvement and all the different carrier's customizations or do they go forward with Windows 10 that they do have control of but has little testing on the 8X?

    I sure would not want to be the guy at Microsoft that caused this mess.

    I'm pretty sure they will figure out a way to get back to WP8.1. W10 it's not yet a stable OS.

    But they surely can provide us the possibility to test w10 dp... afterall, we'll have the possibility to reflash once the files are in their servers.

    sorry for my bad english but i think i made my point.

    I wonder how many 8X users bought new phones to solve this problem??? I have a no contract Microsoft 735 on the way and should be here tomorrow. (BTW, on the Microsoft list for a Windows 10 free upgrade when ready)

    I was surprised how few Windows Phones each of the main US carriers have for selection nowadays. AT&T has only 640 XL, Sprint only the 635, T-Mobile only the 635 and Verizon with the 735. Unless I'm not searching their sites correctly for phones it does not look like a good sign for the future of the Windows Phone. I think it might be possible to buy the higher end Windows phones at the Microsoft store and use them on the carrier of your choosing.

    Yes and no... the 8x has a bit better pixel density but both are 720p and the 640 has gorilla glass 3 compared to gorilla glass 1 of the 8x. 640 better processor, both 1gig ram, 8x 16gig vs 8 memory but 640 has sd slot, glance tho limited, clear black, better rear camera although it's still only adequate at best, and few other things. So all I'm losing is a bit better pixel density which may or may not really be noticeable.

    Hi All,

    I am able to get rid of "This device has been locked for security reasons. Connect your device to the power source for at least two hours, and then try again"

    by using "Windows Phone app for desktop"

    Steps to get rid of the message:

    1. Don't connect your HTC 8X to computer
    2. Open "Windows Phone app for desktop"
    3. Click "Can't find your phone? Try Find My Phone." link
    4. Devices open in a browser, click "Find my phone" link
    5. Click "Lock" button and set a pin and click "Lock" button
    6. After you get the message as your phone is locked, unlock your phone by using the PIN you set in above step
    7. Go to "Settings" and remove the PIN to get rid of the security message in future.

    Pathetic thing is my lovely HTC 8X is restarting for every 5 minutes. Now all in the hands of MSFT to get us out of this trouble.
