    Just reinstall the version the windows phone recovery tool says. It rolled me back to 8.1 after it downloaded the 1.5 GB OS and reinstalled.

    The first part of your question I do not understand. But to roll back download the windows software recovery tool on your pc and follow the instructions.
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...backup-restore

    If you have messages back up enabled than you will not loose them.

    It will roll back to 8.1. Just press 'Reinstall software' and it should start download of about 1.5 GB.

    Try this if the suggestions posted above fail.

    If you have access to navifirm, download the files for your phone and place them into this dir (presuming your on windows 7): C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Packages\Products\RM-xxx (denotes your what variant you have). The recovery tool should find these and instead of downloading, skip to the install.

    Edit: you should be able to find the link to Navifirm+ if you don't have it - in this thread:

    Do you get a failure code.
    Does the installing of the recovery software stop or during the downloading from the software for your phone.
    Did you use different windows versions to check.
    Did you use both the windows and lumia software recovery tool.
    What is the download speed of the wifi's you used.
    Did you try it again checked over a period of a few hours.

    Bye the way why did you not install the recovery software before you installed the preview on your phone.
