    I've had my Lumia 710 for over a year and I've pretty much had it in a draw for about 6 months. I want to start using it again as my main phone a Sony Xperia Z Ultra is going in for repair and the Lumia is the only device I have that takes a micro sim card.

    When I bought it I rooted it and installed a custom rom onto it and now I want to restore it back to stock and update to 7.8. I've followed instructions on XDA Developers [Q] Return to Official/Original lumia 710 ROM - xda-developers to restore it back to stock but I can't get it to run the last section where you have to do a sequence of cable, power, volume down then when it vibrates let go of the power & volume down and press volume up, click start on the pc. I've obviously downloaded the correct firmware that corresponds with my device.

    Any ideas?

    Is there any reason why the 710 can't get W8 and the 520 can?

    Because the 520 IS a Windows Phone 8 device? There is no upgrading from 7.x to 8.x.
