    Hello,

    as mentioned in the topic, I've been trying to install the Windows 10 Mobile version 1709 on my Lumia 950 XL. Unfortunately, despite the fact that the update downloaded and prepared itself without a problem, it didn't install itself properly and caused a loop: spinning gears for couple seconds, and a sad face. Restart and repeat.

    As much as I'd like to just use the Windows Device Recovery Tool to restore my phone, it would also revert it to version 1511. And since I had real issues getting even to 1703, I'd rather not do that.

    I've tried hard resetting it - hold the volume down and power button until it vibrates, then hold just the volume down button until the exclamation mark appears and press vol up, vol down, power and vol down buttons to start the reset, but it didn't work. If I press vol down and power buttons, the phone does indeed vibrate, but when I keep pressing the vol down button, it just resets again. Long story short - I can't even hard reset the damn thing.

    Can someone help me with my potential brick? I don't want to have it in this state, since this is potentially my backup phone.
