    Hello everyone!

    I'm currently having issues with my Lumia.

    With the latest update for WM10,my phone was stuck at "gears", I've let it be for 7 hrs, but still no change.

    I've tried to soft reset it, but progress was still stuck after 2 hrs of waiting.

    After looking through various forums, everybody's solution was to do a hard reset.

    I've tried many times, but there's no way to reach the "Exclamation mark"-point.

    When I keep the vol- button pressed, phone boots to "NOKIA" logo, then restarts, and this repeats infinitely until I stop holding the button.

    Also I'm unable to turn the phone off. It restarts every time.

    Every thread everywhere I looked got it solved by this.. .but I can't get there.

    Other option was using the NOKIA or Windows recovery suite - but none of those recognizes my phone.

    If can help me with any advice, please let me know.

    Thank you!! :)

    Don't try for a hard reset when the update is going on or got stuck
    Remove the sd card and do a soft reset
