    I don't know firsthand, but can the updated recovery tool be used?

    worth noting that they aren't responsible for any bricked phones considering they explicitly warned would-be Insiders of the risks.

    It takes 10 mins to read instructions on flashing and may be an hour or two to download the recovery ROMs. Another 5_10 mins and one is back on 8.1. No need to buy another phone if you have enough patience

    There are plenty here in the forums (hint: 920 sticky). Flashing is easy and safe

    Does your phone get recognized when connected to the PC? Try connecting while holding the down arrow key

    If your phone shows up as QHSUSB_DLOAD in device manager when plugged into a PC try using this guide. I was able to recover my bricked 925 with this guide.

    This guide has the modern toolchain for flashing images without relying on Nokia Care Suite. FFU download mode seems a bit more low level than the standard recovery process. This process apparently can't help QHSUSB_DLOAD, however.

    "Microsoft Working to Fix Bricked Windows Phones with QHSUSB_DLOAD Issue

    A new Windows Phone Recovery Tool might be released
    It looks like there are many Windows Insiders that got their smartphones bricked while they were trying to recover them using Microsoft's Windows Phone Recovery Tool."
