    Is there a process for hard resetting a 920 which DOESN'T brick the phone?

    I need to change the Microsoft ID associated with my phone and, while I know I can reflash after it bricks, that left my phone with a broken LED flash and voicemail.

    What is the best way to reset my 920?

    If you simply want to return phone to factory status, just go to Setting -> About, and choose Reset Your Phone.

    The standard (and AFAIK, only) method to restore the phone is detailed above. Until Nokia, or MS, or both do some updating, there is no fool proof way to not brick the phone during this process. The good thing is that there is a sticky at the top of this forum about how to get yourself out of the bricked state.

    Turn phone off > Press and hold Vol Down+Power simultaneously > Wait for exclamation mark > Vol Up > Vol Dn > Power > Vol Dn

    Although, not sure if this will brick your phone or not. It's just the key combo as opposed to the OS method.
