    Was just thinking about doing this after Cortana is not giving voice responses to me. Apparently you need to do a hard reset to configure her again.

    Just did a soft-reset and my 1520 appears to be hosed. More details to come...

    Yep, it looks like I'm hosed. Can't get it to connect to Nokia CareSuite, can't force a flash, sucker doesn't respond to anything right now. Very, Very, Sad...

    Quick Update: after allowing the phone to shut itself off, I was able to perform a power-on hard-reset and while it's a clean-slate it does appear to be OK now.

    I've got my suspicions that the SD Card may have had something to do with this but considering I couldn't even get it up in a crippled state to check I'll probably never know...

    ​Do you have a SD card in your phone right now?

    That might be it then. I'll remember to take out mine if I hard reset.

    The issue I ran into with my 1520 this morning (and I've got that 128GB Sandisk in there...) was the upgrade seemed to go smoothly but any App that was accessing the SD-Card (Camera App, Photo App, Video App, Storage Sense App, etc... etc...) wouldn't launch at all when invoked. A simple power-down and power up wouldn't fix the problem, and the soft-reset resulted in the BSOD. After that I pulled the SD-Card, did a power-up-hard-reset and other than having a wiped phone, all seems to be well.

    That the problem is related to the SD-Card is pure speculation on my part but historically this is not the first time that the combination of the two (MS Dev/Test O/S plus SD Card) has caused me grief as I had similar issues with the upgrade from 7.0 to 7.5 on a Samsung Focus and then again with an early version of Nokia Amber on a Lumia 822.

    You'd think I would learn....

    I'm up and running though, just plugged the card back in and have copied my Music library over. One thing I like about the new Music app is that you can now tell it to look at "just" the Music on the SD Card, xBox Music Cloud, or Both. Much happier about that. Album Art recognition seems to be better as well but it still missed a few when moving my music over.

    Updated to 8.1 and did a soft reset. I have a adata 64GB microsd card and have not had any issues at all. I don't think there's a need to do a full hard reset unless something went terribly wrong during the update process. My phone is running as smooth as butter without doing a hard reset.

    I just restored my 1520 to factory settings post-8.1 update, went smoothly without any problems. I have a 64GB SD card which I left in, it gives you the option of wiping the SD card too.

    As the old saying goes, your mileage may vary....

    Actually if feedback on forums and socials networks are any indication, I imagine things are going pretty smoothly for most. It will be interesting to see if MS has any feedback in the next few days regarding the % of support requests, etc...

    I have a 937 too. I bought it through Expansys. Even if you get BSOD I think you might be able to take your phone to support as the Nokia Developer Team in Twitter repeatedly said the update doesnt void the warranty. https://twitter.com/nokiadeveloper

    So far so good on my update, no reset or anything. I don't even know what a soft reset it and what it does. But it burned 70% of my battery installing the 8.1 and playing with it for a while. I hope the quick battery burn isn't a reflection of what to expect. If it burns faster, they I will try a hard reset....

    No problems here either with two 925's, 520, 1020 and 1520 but I didn't do a reset of any of the phones.

    I installed 8.1 fully, used it for a couple minutes THEN did a hard reset. I'm having no problems at all! It's awesome actually! Off topic but one thing I appreciate is the keyboard not taking up half the screen any more! Yet it's still perfectly usable! And the fake swipe is awesome

    No sd card either! I'm holding out for an extreme plus 128 GB card!

    Update: I ended up doing a hard reset because my live tiles stopped working. They all just fail to update.

    I think I'm still having the same problem this morning as well as my tiles haven't updated in over an hour.

    Any chance the 128GB card is the issue?Doesn't the 1520 only officially support a 64GB? Also, I wish I would have researched into whether or not a 128GB card would have worked in my 1520 before I went and ordered a 64GB one yesterday.

    I don't think so and as time goes on I don't think the SD Card is the cause (or sole cause at least). I talked a 520 user (which had no SD Card either) through a stuck-in-BSOD situation last night and there are several postings about 1520 "weirdness" on the MS forum that seems to get resolved by a Hard Reset/Wipe.

    FWIW, my Wife's 1020 upgraded just fine. The difference (if you could call it one) is that her phone is less "dirty" than my 1520. She tends to just install a few apps and games and doesn't play around with the settings like a, uh, hobbyist like myself tends to do.

    I was playing Nokia Mix Radio offline (app on SD card) and then loaded up Beats Music (also on SD card), phone rebooted and asked me to scan and fix the SD card. After that it's been fine (that was this morning.) There may be some sensitiveness to the SD card transfer rate and such.

    What's the difference between the factory reset found on settings and a hard reset?

    After you did any, did your battery life improved?
