    My phone is one of the many victims of the new developer update that came out yesterday. So I heard that people with the Ativ S were able to revert back to the WP8 software version. Is there a way to do this with the Ativ S Neo or we are still in the dark. Please help because basically the phone is useless in the boot loop.

    Thanks,

    Antoine

    My AT&T Ativ S Neo has this problem, your only choice at the moment is to either send it to Samsung for service so they can flash it or if you have AT&T go to their Device Support Centers.

    Flash it back to Windows Phone 8 this is what I did to get my phone working and to get the official update from sprint for windows phone 8.1. I can upload the files and a quick tutorial on how to flash back if you want

    The process to revert back to WP8 only applies to the GT-I8750 variant. Don't flash you're ATIV Neo using this. You'll permanently brick your device.

    I have the SPH-I800 (Sprints Samsung Ativ S Neo) and I successfully flashed back to Windows Phone 8 and I have successfully recovered my Sprint data and got the official Windows Phone 8.1 update on my phone now. So it does work for the Ativ S Neo not sure who told you that.. Or if it happened to you and your phone I am sorry to hear bro

    It did happen to me.. But I got the gt-i8750 variant.. So I'm in the clear. But I've heard other Neo variant users trying this, bricking their devices.. So a drop of caution ⚠ is required. If you stated that you own this model and successfully flashed using the method then cool. Cheers 🍻

    I did indeed successfully do it.. It was a bit nerve-racking but it was successful. My post for my updates are here if anyone wants to read it: http://forums.windowscentral.com/sam...tiv-s-neo.html

    Benito is spot on. I have done the flash process 3 times with the SPH-I800 which is Sprint's version of Ativ S Neo. The files are also on XDADevelopers website and is quite easy to do. Putting the phone in download mode before hooking it to the computer.

    I sent mine back to Samsung. It was still under mfg warranty so no charge. Send sent a UPS shipping label for me to send it to them. Took them only one day to fix it - it now has the official 8.1 update and correct Sprint firmware. It is now working perfectly. I will NOT be messing around with Windows 10 - will be patient & wait for the official update. Not even sure the WP10 preview can be put on the Neo
