    I found a solution! Finally... You need the Nokia Software Updater for Retail to flash the latest available firmware to your Nokia phone. The new firmware (version 1232.5957.1308.0001) has stopped the brick mode in its tracks. There are a lot of sites advertising this software, but all that I found require registration or the downloading some additional software. You can download the working retail version 2.0.6 here -- without registration and without any additional garbage software. It will update itself to 3.0.4 (or the most current version). I have run it on Windows 8 and Windows 7, connected to my unlocked Lumia 920 (RM-821_apac_philippines_388) and it works great. Firmware updated and it hasn't shut down since!
    Hi john, your from philippines right? If i flashed my lumia will this void my warranty? Im stil within the 7 days replacement period and is hesitant to do anyhing drastic.

    Hows the update going for you so far? No more crashes or random freezing issues? Thanks in advance!

    Hello Charles! Using an official piece of Nokia software (that checks the compatibility with your phone) to flash the latest released Nokia firmware will NOT void your warranty. I have updated my site with the latest progress and also address the scare tactics (no warranty, dead phone, etc.) here.

    I also share some personal stuff about me on the right side of the page (Philippines, etc.) Good luck!

    ...and this problem happens again, now with WP 8.10.12382.878 (WP 8.1 with the first patch applied). it's funny, after all these years, and for strange that it is, the same issue got my wife with her 1020. yeah, that could be due to local carrier (Switzerland, Orange) and hardware related... can't think about anything else. my sister got the same issue in Italy with a different operator, so that issue may affect other carriers too.
