    I'm having issues with my OS since updating the OS. Is there any way to reinstall the current OS (the newest/latest for my 1520) and not just doing a restore? I'm thinking the downloaded update was compromised in some fashion that is causing my issues. I'm coming from iOS and I know there is a way to do a reinstall on the iPhone, but unsure on the WP platform.

    You can do a hard reset by going to settings > about. It will erase everything on your phone and restore the OS to factory settings.

    You can also download a utility program called Nokia Software Recovery Tool on your PC and can actually reflash the ROM onto the phone.

    and this will return it to the OS that it shipped with, correct?

    Nokia software updater (NSU) 4.1 - it should offer you a latest version ...

    There is also new "Nokia Software Recovery Tool Installer 1.1.3.0" - it should be around the same, but targeting also to recovery of unresponsive cp ....

    Well, there is also Nokia Care Suite (NCS - NokiaCareSuiteForStore-2013.49.3.30), some give you a chance to download and install other country fw version too (as your current one) - to use it (as it is not meant for end users), you have to use modified "UserGroupsConfiguration.cfg" file ...

    I went the Nokia Software Recovery Tool route and this was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks again!
