    I reverted to 8.1 and did not get GDR2. I guess it will be pushed alongside 10136 when they hit the red button today

    My 10080 catastrophically failed suddenly yesterday, so no programs would load and wifi stopped functioning and stuff, so I downgraded to 8.1. Wow! It's so fast and things work! After 2 months on 10, 8.1 feels like the most amazing upgrade ever. I don't know if I'll go back to the 10 TP anytime soon, it's just so nice that things work. And I can finally use all the Band features I could never use before (I got the band after upgrading to the TP). Speed and Bluetooth finally working will be important things, so we'll see what 10136 brings. I do miss some features from 10, but there were more broken things than new things.
    Yes! The exact same thing happened to me, very weird. The phone would connect to wi-fi only when it felt like it, and even when it did, the wi-fi toggle in the action center would sometimes appear to be toggled-off. If you wanted to go to settings to double-check the connectivity, the phone would be stuck on trying to load settings, which would then result in a crash/freeze. Trying to open any app was a challange, especially with Spartan, you'd have a guaranteed Loading/Freeze, which if you wanted to get out of by calling the multitasking (longpress on back), would result in unresponsive capacitive-keys so you'd have no choice but to soft reset. And after soft reset, cellular data would stop working for which you would need another reset, etc.. :) It was quite a nightmare.. And as you said, it started happening yesterday completely out of nowhere, I was suspecting I had done some physical damage to the phone. It is very interesting to see that multiple people started seeing these exact issues on the exact same day. (I'm on a L920 btw)

    I also downgraded to 8.1 and it is like heaven right now :) However I will be upgrading to 10136 since it is said to be quite stable (even Gabe uses it as his daily driver)

    Interesting. I plan to revert to 8.1 as soon as Gabe Aul confirms that 10134 is up an running. Maybe i have better luck with my 920.
    You don't need to wait for the 10136 update to go live. You can downgrade now and enroll in Insider Fast.

    By the way, if you folks are facing trouble installing LSRT/WPSRT, you may want to try Nokia Software Updater for Retail (http://nds2.fds-fire.nokia.com/fds_f...tail_4.1.0.exe)

    I did the downgrade using this on a L920. I'm not sure whether it would work with non-Lumia devices, or newer Lumias (930 etc), though; so proceed with caution

    Actually Gabe posted a couple of hours ago that this was just the hop that was setup to get to 10080 and you don't go via GDR2 anymore.

    Never ever use WPRT for older phones such as 920/820/1020/720/520/620/925. use Lumia software recovery tool instead

    Why? Is it prone to brick older Phones? Most problems i have read with WPRT are only related to not beeing able to connect.

    the LSRT has the same problems as the WPRT. Your phone will not detect or will detected but the process doesn't working. Sometimes you need to try all USB-Ports on your Computer/Notebook to find someone that works. I don't think that's a Problem of the WPRT.

    sorry for my bad english but i hope you understand what i mean :)

    No, I have used LSRT to revert my 920 from 10080 to 8.1 Denim update. Although, it says like that LSRT works fine with older Lumia phones, it works fine with newer Lumia phones too. Also at the same time, wprt was unable to detect my phone. I know it, because I tried it. So my recommendation is first try LSRT, if it doesn't see your Lumia then try WPSRT.

    So far, I have tested LSRT with 920 and 930, and it works perfect.
    In my case, both LSRT and WPRT were able to detect my phone; however I used WPRT to downgrade and it worked like charm.

    I roll back my Lumia 930 without any using this morning using WPRT.

    I forgot how Win 8.1 was fast and smooth! :)

    OK so pushed back to 8.1 using the Microsoft tool as opposed to the Lumia seemed to work ok. Enrolled in the insider fast programme and received two updates one additional language the other prep for the insider and now its says we have no updates. This I guess is good and means I am ready for the good times to roll.

    So lets roll people.

    I also rolled my Lumia 920 back to wp8.1, after a lot of effort. The Lumia recovery tool worked but the one Microsoft provides always crushes or doesn't work.

    Truthfully I don't miss the wp8.1 and I miss windows 10 even though the many bugs it had. I loved it's fresh look, the new UI and all the new features it brought...

    I hope the new build is coming in a couple hours.

    same exact thing for me as well. been running 10080 since it was realeased for my lumia icon on Verizon. had the usual daily problems but never like what just happened, it was completely unusable after no significant change or update to any specific apps or settings. went back to 8.1 as well in light of 10136 and realizing how much I've missed the efficiency. was debating on 10136, I might wait for one day to see what people say.

    Interesting the amount of problems people had with 10080 yesterday. I wonder if a certificate expired or something breaking signed apps maybe? Curious timing though - especially as there is still no sign of 10136 either.

    I've been running a second Lumia Icon with the Win10 10080 and 8.1 on my daily driver. Reverted to 8.1 on the second Icon today in hopes of the 10136 update coming soon!
