    Guys,

    The problem: my 1520.3 battery is so low that the 15286.242 can't finish updating. When I try, the gears turn for about 30 seconds, but it crashes and stops. I get the ominous upside down smile face. "Rinse and repeat." I'm worried.

    Background: Since testing 14xxx Redstone, my 1520.3 (battery?) has been acting very strangely (basically randomly crashing the phone, battery going from a good charge to zero charge. Then after brief (minutes) charge, battery full! Very fussy). So about a week ago, I rolled back to 10586.218 hoping a stable build would fix it. The "Battery" problems persisted. Hmmm. When 10586.242 came along, I downloaded it. Unfortunately, "someone" (it was me) was multitasking and didn't keep the phone plugged in during the install. Though it indicated plenty of battery, the aforementioned, crash occurred. I used the Microsoft Device Recovery Tool too: same result. And now: I'm at the problem above. Not enough battery to finish update. Limbo!

    More stuff: a) The 1520 battery is not removable. b) The 1520 starts up when I plug it in. So the install starts, then crashes for insufficient battery. c) due to "b)" it can't charge itself., d) I wonder if I cooked the battery when the 1520 was running so hot with the Preview Builds.

    Help me!!!!!!

    I've had battery and heating issues during an upgrade. I just had to keep it plugged in until battery was charged and then I had to let it cool off. Then I wiped it with nokia tool and started over.

    My first question is......are plugged into a wall charger or USB ??? If USB get plugged into a wall outlet, as USB ports do a fine slow charge, but the Wall charger should set you straight.

    Let it fail ( if it must), but stay plugged in for at least an hour ( on wall charger), then I would use the Nokia Software Recovery Tool ( please note....not the Microsoft Recovery Tool ).

    Did you read the Microsoft disclaimer concerning beta versions before updating?

    Took it to a phone shop. They fixed. How? Not a clue. But she's alive again.

    Of course. We all do. Some people forget what they signed up for. Not me!

    They might have put it on the charger and charged enough so it survives the flashing process (probably 20-25% battery) and then performed a straight dead flash using WDRT.
