    Do not press retry untill the recovery exl. mark icon disappers, just when you notice it its gone (like 40seconds) then press retry.
    THANKS!! IT WORKED!
    By the way, if you have issues with login with your microsoft account, check if you have activated two-step auth. If you do, login from your pc, go to account information and generate a new app password. With that, you should be able to login and restore your backups.

    Data sense present!! yay!!

    Something else at work there then. I've done this and although it displayed "4g" instead of "lte" my speed are in the 40-53 mbps range most of the time. Remember, the reason it doesn't show "LTE" when using the French ROM is because there is no "LTE" there, it's just considered "4g". So when you use the ROM here in the States and it shows "4g" it's *stilll* using the LTE network, it's the same thing.

    In reality there is no advantage for at&t users. It seems that LTE is gone from the menu and you're left with just 2G, 3G, and 4G. I was hoping that by using the EU firmware I would be able to bypass at&t's restriction on tethering with the grandfathered unlimited data plan but no luck.

    I am also not having any luck reverting back to at&t. I am trying now to actually brick my phone and follow the steps to unbrick it.

    UPdate: I bricked my phone so now it just boots up with the Nokia logo and burgundy background. I still can't recover back to the AT&T firmware. I am trying to flash back the pre-portico firmware and if anyone know a link for portico please do post it here. I just want to try and see if it works but I doubt it will.
    I have the Rogers Pre-portico ROM on my guide here: http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...dr2-amber.html

    Just flashed my phone yesterday using this method. Thanks a bunch!

    Just 2 questions plzz,
    1) My phone now states that their is an update available for my phone. This is after I flashed it. What is this update? I'm afraid it will just revert it.
    2) Pro and Cons between the flashed Amber vs the Official OTA Amber update. Am i losing anything by doing a manual update?

    Were you able to see your firmware on the list at Nokia Care Suite?

    When I press Start (step 10) it says "Recovery Failed. Vpl file not found." I have made sure all file names are correct (I checked AndreStudart's screenshot). Is there anything else that could be causing this issue?

    Here is what I did and worked for me

    1. go to outlook on your PC (not from the phone)
    2. log in
    3. once the page is fully loaded, go to the top rigth corner, click on your name and click on account configuration
    4. on the left menu, click security information
    5. you should see several items, among them are: two-step auth status, phone number, alternate email, authenticator app and app passwords
    6. click in the link that says generate new app password
    7. it opens a new page with a password.
    8. go to your phone and use that password to log in
    9. ???
    10. Profit

    Some screenshots (I dont have the page in english, sorry)

    Thanks a lot but I had tried this and it still doesn't work. In fact, I activated this feature and also deactivated it to see and,... nothing.

    I found out it's not only with my microsoft account that I have problems.

    I think you have to "crack" your nokia care suite in order to access it. I think the link for this was posted in one of the amber update threads. Will try to find it once I'm on my desktop

    Try repeating the instructions and make sure that you press the volume down and power button after the pop up window that instructs it comes out, then follow the instructions of that prompt after. Hope this helps

    I'm in the same boat as him. I get an error message "Recovery Failed: Unable to get error message" and the prompt that should come up where it says to do the volume down and press the power button never comes up. I'm feeling frustrated over this because I've been getting the same message at least 5 times by now

    Another method is to use Nokia Software Updater for Retail. If you were able to see your firmware in your NCS like Annaskilller's, chances are you'll be able to see it there too. You just have to plug your phone, then click install, no need to wait for prompts.
