    Has anyone found a solution to the "unable to find a bootable option" error on the lumia 822?? other than sending it back to verizon that is. . .

    Its such a rare occurrence and we don't have much leeway under the hood of Windows Phone for such a fix, I'm afraid sending it to Verizon or Nokia for service is the only way.

    However, I don't have experience with such an issue. Potentially (sheer conjecture) you could try reflashing it using Nokia Care Suite (I think that's the name). I would probably try that first, making sure its the 822 ROM being loaded.

    Same problem here with a lumia 521. Tried Nokia care and recovery software and they do not recognize the phone at all.

    Interesting, I thought it was limited to the 822. Yea, the software doesnt recognize it. I'm suspecting its the memory that has some how crashed. So I don't think it will be fixable.

    I will ask around and see...I was not able to fix one using Nokia Care Suite....perhaps the old software where you can select a specific firmware file might work but I don't have the older software...

    Do you for sure have the correct ROM downloaded? I only saw this error message when I was trying to flash an RM-914 ROM on my AT&T 520 (RM-915). I tried many different ways to get it to work but I couldn't.

    I've tried all 3 roms that I've found for lumia 521... Do you think I'm getting this rom error because I upgraded to windows phone 8.1?

    No its not a ROM issue, the problem is that the software can't recognize what phone it is, thus returns the error assuming its the wrong ROM.

    I had the same problem with my phone last month, I had to get it replaced.

    What happened to me was I was on the 6Snap app and messing around with that I pressed the home button and it took forever to go back to the start page so I locked my phone and unlocked it to see most of the tiles in my start menu missing. So I decided to take out the battery and restarted my phone and I got this error too.
