    I have the same problem. follow these simple steps , connect your phone to your computer(if you have a passcode , enter it). No go to device manager/click on view/show hidden devices. Now head into portable devices/locate windows phone/right click/uninstall/locate Universal Serial Bus Devices/Uninstall Lumia 920(In my case there are 2 So uninstall both ) along with nokia flash. Go to action menu/ scan for hardware changes. You should see your device in nokia recovery tool.

    Have you downgraded your device (920?) and received any updates or are you stuck with WP8 now?

    Nope. Recovery software downloaded the latest GDR3+Black firmware. I am still waiting for windows phone 8.1/cyan firmware update.
    Also note that I haven't installed preview for developer app , my phone is says up-to-date.(haa cyan isn't available for 920 yet in my country, India. As of now Lumia 1520,925 and 625 received the update. ) Are you planning to downgrade your device ?

    I downgraded my 1320 yesterday and got update. Although it prompts for "install update" on Recovery, it stops after Black+GDR3 I think. It doesn't go to Cyan. So probably yesterday had false hope. Now again, install DP8.1 and will just wait till we get Cyan for 1320 globally. Probably 3-4 weeks.

    must be a keyboard update anyways why did you downgraded ? I downgraded because of the recent update I was once again having GPS issues , some settings like Bluetooth/nfc were constantly crashing. nokia camera was doing the same but stock was forking fine(I need manual focus and shutter speed ). I am quite happy with speed and performance of windows phone 8 on my l920. Closing tabs in wp8.1 was jerky.

    Before you do that........
    There are stil a few options.
    Unplug your phone
    Then delete all and i mean delete all drivers wat relates to nokia or your phone from your pc.
    Reboot your pc and plug in your phone.
    Then install one of the recovery programs.
    There are two ways to turn back to wp8

    One is with the nokia care suite
    second is the Nokia software recovery

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/8x0ri9rca4...012.40.5.8.msi

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/vjx96zyqag...lInstaller.exe

    The drivers are the main issue here, not your operating system.

    This. I have windows 8.1 with update 1 installed. This is clearly driver issue.
