    Running a 640 on Slowring Windows 10.

    Decided to try Fastring and did a master reset and now the phone is on cogs with :( being displayed.

    Have done the power/volume down button, lighting bolt setting and volume up/down/power reset and the recovery tool will not find my phone. Laptop knows the phone is plugged in as it makes a "dingdong" noise but an error come sup saying it cant download its software.

    I have installed two variants (and re-installed) of the recovery tool. Even selecting "my phone was not detected" does nothing.

    Trawling Google I found a thread from early this year saying the 640 cannot role back.

    640 roles back using WPRT fine. Have you tried this method of flashing back.

    The method mentioned by Realwarder worked for my supposedly bricked 822, as well.

    It, too, seemed to be caught in an infinite boot loop thanks to failing to update.

    This happened to me not too long ago. What I did was use the recovery tool. Not the Nokia one. My phone would only get recognized by the program for a slit second and then it would act like my phone had been disconnected. Long story short, I was able to time it just right for a download to happen.
