    Windows phone 10 tech preview on Lumia 820. It was running ok, buggy of course. It powered down once and it restarted to a BSOD- first time I've seen that on windows phone. It said "Recover", "This PC/Device needs to be repaired". The rest of the text is almost unreadable (too small).

    Tried using Windows Phone recovery tool, but it never detects the device. The device keeps rebooting itself every minute or 2.
    So it looks like it's stuck in an endless reboot loop.
    Any thoughts anyone? This is not looking great for me...

    Lumia Software Recovery Tool.
    Install that, plug the phone in, follow the instructions.
    If your phone doesn't get recognized, there's a button for that.

    There is option like "my phone not detected". Press that,and you will prompt to unplug your device,klik ok,and connect to device,after that press volume down+power until you feel a single vibrate,and release

    LSRT seems to be doing the trick, many thanks! I will be waiting for a more stable WP10 release before doing this again... phone out of action for pretty much a full day. Waste of time.

    WPRT didn't detect the phone, but eventually, LSRT did. It was still a bit flakey but seems to be getting there in the end. Thanks all.

    didn't work for my BSOD. Nor did other things. Had to get a new phone. C'est la vie! Waiting for the next build.
