    Yes. Just select the "phone not detected" option, select the model# and let WDRT do its magic. It may longer to download the 1.5GB+ firmware depending on your internet speed.

    Seems obvious, but have you tried a different charger?

    Is there a chance that you (or someone else) might have inserted the charging plug the wrong way around into the phone and forced it? Doing this by mistake is pretty easy and can mangle up the charging port on the phone.

    Oh yes it seems I am the culprit here !!!! I did use different charger , because it always says device charging slowly even when I used microsoft charger. So this time ( I tried 2 or 3 times earlier too ), I used a turbo charger. So you say I might have forced it the wrong way ? then please suggest the solution ?

    If the plug doesn't feel loose when it's in the phone, or isn't too tight, then it's probably ok.

    You might need to get a repair organised through warranty.
