    Hi guys I am thinking on hacking Windows 10 and getting them in my Lumia 820.
    Has anybody had any hardware issues when doing this??? I don't mind about software
    issues because I can roll it back, but I am worried about the hardware, I don't want to destroy my Lumia it's my only phone at the moment!!!

    Might just want to hang tight for a month or two rather than risk bricking the only phone you have...

    Just to check are you sure you can roll back. Or in other words did you already use the lsrt or wsrt to flash your phone to see if it works. Some phones have problems with these tools even with the official installed software.

    And I am not sure if everyone who bricked his phone is "brave" enough to admit it.

    Definitely, do not recommend especially it is your only phone and it is currently unsupported.

    People have various issues and various degrees of success.

    I would suggest if your eager to try it out, get yourself a cheap second hand 630.

    I understand but if you read the articles and watch the video's in WC you get a good idea what's it about and your phone is safe.

    I don't recommend hacking your phone. I have Windows 10 on my Lumia 635 through the official route but I did hack it on to my Lumia 1020 and it is working great. My 1520 is my main phone and I am not going to hack my main phone as there is still the possibility of bricking my device.

    As others have stated, if you only have one phone, we don't recommend the hack as the use of your phone in the event of an emergency is better than having a bricked phone that you cannot use to call for help or to help others.
