    To all the WP users: If you use an SD card, make sure you remove the SD card before installing any software update. Then you shouldn't face the endless spinning gear problem.

    I got a near similar type of issue. After my mobile (lumia 930)got an update on Friday. The phone started re-starting automatically multiple times. I did the soft and hard reset and then a symbol of flash with the setting symbol came. I tried everything but still didnt work. Nokia Care is telling me to change the board which will cost around 80% of the mobile price. Any suggestion.

    I had met the same problem with my Lumia 1320
    This was happend first when I got the denim update
    When I tried to update it got stuck on the spinning cogs'
    That time I had waited for 30 mins, then I tried for a soft reset ie; the combination of the keys volume down and power button, this helped me to get my phone updated

    After some days I tried for a reset ,the same issue was happens again, this time the soft reset doesn't helped me

    Then I tried an other way
    I turned of the phone and removed the sim card and memmory card then connected it to the charger ,the phone turned on automatically and the resetting was done successfully

    Trying This may help you

    in my case I couldn't even performed a hard reset on L1320, nothing happened when pressing the volume down (Nokia logo just kept re-appearing when doing so).
    so I have removed the SD cards, restart the phone and it applied the update from lumia to denim successfully....on next restart, I have inserted back the SD card and the migration of the data went smooth also.

    When I try to connect the phone, I pressed Volume Down + Power Button just like you said, but it is not vibrating until I release the button. Then again it does not detect my phone. And the phone continue to show the spinning gear. What should I do? And here's my phone cycle when I connect it into a PC. Vibrate, Nokia sign, gear sign, blank screen, vibrate, Nokia sign, gear sign, blank screen, and so on. And here's a thing I should mention. If I try to hard reset it manually using the button combo, it does not show the exclamation mark. I pressed the volume down and connect my phone to a charger. But it shows no exclamation mark! Just showing Nokia, and then black blank screen, and then Nokia again, and black blank screen and so on.

    I tried the software updater as well as
    Step 1
    Make sure the phone is turned off.

    1. Press and hold the power key.
    2. Phone vibrates (release the key)
    3. Press and hold the volume down key.
    4. Exclamation mark is shown on the screen (release the volume down key).

    Step 2
    Input the following key combination:

    1. Volume Up
    2. Volume down
    3. Power
    4. Volume down

    Both is not working, I'm still stuck in the gears of death

    Any other ideas? (Lumia 630 in this case, not 1020!)

    I have the same issue as Aryo Dwiatmojo.

    Has anyone found a way to resolve the endless Nokia reboot logo when holding down the volume down button? :(

    I really have no idea what else to do...

    Thank you so much! My Lumia 520 crashed while I was updating to Windows 10. This helped me get it fixed. A tip to anyone out theere, if the phone keeps rebooting during this process, just take the battery out and leave it for a few minutes (preferably after the firmware download is complete). This worked for me

    I didn't get what you're trying to say.

    Try Windows Device Recovery Tool. Latest version as of today is 3.3.31: http://download-fds.webapps.microsof...lInstaller.exe
