    I got this error, is the WPRT and it fixes it fine. Unless you want your app data...

    When I needed it the WPRT worked flawlessly. Sending good thoughts your way.

    I figured what it was after I posted the question. I've tried it and its not finding my device. I have gears which will eventually quit and then mean-mug me. I'll keep at it a little longer.

    Wait! We have a heart beat. Stand by..

    Well, you surprised me, here I thought this was going to be another "windows mobile is dead" post.

    on topic: yea, that looks savable bud, here's the link to the program everyone above me has mentioned (along with a guide made by microsoft on how to do it, though its pretty straight forward): How can I recover/reset/restore my phone software? - Microsoft - USA

    EDIT: I took to long making a the post and now its not needed haha

    If this still fails, I have heard that nokia's recovery suite (don't remember if that's the actual name) is able to bring phones back from the dead when WPRT cant sometimes.

    and another tip, WPRT doesn't seem to like some usb wires, so if your having issues still, might be worth trying a different wire if you have one laying around

    It's just in the timing. I had the same thing when I tried to stop the last build and got caught in that download/reboot loop. Just get to the point where it asks you to hold the power button and the volume button down to soft reset, when you phone reboots then the recovery tool will read the device and pray.

    It was timing for sure. This got it rolling finally. I'm going to see if I can't get this latest build on it but it's being stubborn.

    I try to keep only the better wires in the house. We had more than a few around here and when I find them I get rid of em. Thanks.

    Same sad face happened when I hard resetted my phone on new build,went back to 8.1,stopped all apps from downloading but downloaded insider apps,went to 10166 just fine,no need to hard reset now,seems hard resetting causes issues with many People's phones this build.

    Same freaking problem here on my ICON, installed 10166, Then HARD reset (to clear up issues) and the EXACT same thing happened to me. The spinning gears than about 1-5 min later, the sad face.

    Using the Recovery tool works fine to get the phone working again but, I wanted to try 10166, not 8.1....

    I'm at the "and it will be worth the wait..." screen. I hope this one finally works. What's interesting is, my 920 and my HTC M8 went flawlessly but the phone I want to use wants flowers, candy and dinner first.

    The phone looks ready but its still warm to the touch. Which means to me, its not ready so I wait.

    Good to see your 1520 is up and running again, you really can't destroy these phones as usually that is down to user error or trying to force the preview on it (phones don't commit suicide, people destroy phones).

    Which is a testament to Nokia's legendary build quality, granted ever since they farmed a lot of production out of Finland some have been lacking in that final hurdle of quality control.


    and another tip, WPRT doesn't seem to like some usb wires, so if your having issues still, might be worth trying a different wire if you have one laying around
    What your thinking about is the factory cable that came with the phone and almost all Nokia chargers (that utilize the pluggable usb socket) which ship with a supplied cable.
