    /!\ You must use SMD v3.54 in order to downgrade your phone from W10M to WP8.1.1 or you are going to brick it.
    About SMD binary downloader crashing, I never encountered this problem... :S
    Does it stop responding indefinitely? It's maybe a conflict with another program or an antivirus.
    Sorry for the late reply.

    Yeah, the SMD Binary Downloader 3.54 just stops responding indefinitely. Task Manager shows no activity, Windows Defender is disabled and any other software that might interfere is shutdown. Basically just running standard Windows services and programs.

    It's really weird, because I have restored with the same software earlier from my Surface Pro 3, but I can't get it done anymore. The Binary Downloader does not recognize the phone except when I unplug it. The program will start responding then and show the left uppermost channel as "Disconnect Device!!!"

    Did you try to completely uninstall the device (when in download mode) from the devices manager and then uninstall/reinstall the Samsung USB drivers?

    I tried it on a laptop running Windows 7 owned by a friend and finally got it sorted yesterday. I still don't know what went wrong on my Surface Pro 3 and desktop PC, but happy to have 8.1 back on my Ativ ;).

    By official means, no.
    By faking your phone model, there are higher version than 8.10.14157.200 available.
    And yes, you can. I even recommend you use this combo (it'll save you a lot of time).

    I flashed my PH with 8.10.14203.306 (2424.15.3.2) for Ativ S, with GT-I8750 XXDOC2_RS_signed.wp8 and GT-I8750OXXCMK2_R_SIGNED.csc.
    But it still would NOT update to the 8.10.14219.341
    So am looking for 8.10.15116.125 and above files.

    By faking phone model, wath you men with that?

    Is there a Software for WPs there you can make a backup on your OS, setting, apps, sms, or wath ever you want to backup from your WPn, and then flash back to it again if something goes bad?

    I mean that you make your phone appears as another model (Lumia 930...) to the Windows update servers by editing your phone registry.
    Note that you need to find a phone model that will receive the update your looking for. You can start with this guide.

    And no, there are no such tools except the ones embedded in the WP system (especially for the system settings). There is one exception: the contacts can be saved on a SD card using a application Microsoft published in the store.

    I tried this steps as he write

    I recommend you at first do this*:
    1. Flash CMJ1 with ATO CSC.
    2. Install all latest updates (14157 with 2424.15.3.2 f/w).

    "Done that i got 8.10.14157.200 with 2424.15.3.2"

    * - If you updated the you phone to 14219 using Windows Insider - it's necessary!

    "I cant install Windows Insider on Ativa S just Preview for delvelopers?"

    Windows Insider after activating makes permanent changes to the system. So only hard reset or flash will help you. If you are not sure whether you can flash you phone - try at first simple hard reset.

    "Done that does not help"
