    I am using the Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers program, and i was just casually using my phone, looking through my flickr central app, then a sudden automatic reboot commenced, and this message appeared on screen: Error: Unable to find a bootable option. Press any key to shut down.
    I have tried soft resetting the phone, but that hasn't worked, i tried hard resetting the phone and that hasn't worked either.
    I am aware of the bugs and issues that occur in the Preview.

    I also tried the Nokia Software Recovery Tool, but that hasn't worked either. I followed the onscreen instructions, connected my phone, downloaded the software package, but it said that my phone was not supported. I have also tried to Nokia Suite software, but i don't know how i can connect my phone to it.

    Can someone please help me?

    I can't help as I've never seen an app kill a phone like this before. I will say, however, thanks loads for warning us about the Flickr Central app. I shall avoid it. This warning really ought to make it to the WPC front page incase others download this killer app without realising and end up with a bricked phone.

    I don't think the problem is with the flickr central app because i did some research into this problem, and found out that a user got the same message from looking at his email, and using the internet explorer app for WPCentral. He was running Windows Phone 8.1 as well.
