    I'm inclined to think I know my way around devices, as I've rooted and custom rom'd a fair share of Android devices.

    But after going onto the insider slow program and updating to one of the Win10 preview builds, I tried going back to 8.1 with the device recovery tool.

    The update process kept throwing out a CRC32 error.

    So I tried the hard reset key sequence.

    Power/ Volume Down. Then Volume up, volume down, power, volume down, and it's been stuck at gears.

    Anything else to try? Is there no boot loader one can get into like in Android?

    Reallllllllly appreciate ANY assistance.

    Zak

    Hook it to a computer and use Microsoft recovery tool.

    Thanks mate but I tried that. Bombs out with some CRC error. Looks like my model Lumia doesn't like the image downloaded or vice versa

    Delete downloaded files and re-download.

    Here is where these are stored:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Packages\Products\{product_code}

    {product_code} = your device product code.

    Empty {product_code} folder and run WDRT again.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll try that
