    Slept fine with the phone on bed side, woke up and its in auto restart mode. Microsoft logo keeps coming back up.
    Windows Recovery tool won't detect the phone, left it connected to search for lumia phone for almost an hour.
    Manual Hard Reset ends up in Sad Smiley.
    Any tricks please?

    950xl Dual Sim: US Edition: On latest Software (14028 i think), It downloaded the 133, but could never install.

    Just an idea:

    try to remove the battery for a while...

    then, install the battery while the usb cable is already connected to the computer (with the WDRT open) and power on...

    Try using WDRT in Flash Mode - it seems the only way to recover it when it is not detected:


    If your phone is not automatically detected, disconnect all phones from your computer and press My phone was not detected at the bottom of the main screen.
    If prompted, select the phone manufacturer.
    Connect your phone to your computer with a compatible USB cable.
    Wait for your computer to detect the connected phone and follow the screen instructions. If the phone is not connected within on minute you can try to restart your phone: Keep USB connected, press and hold the Power and Volume down keys simultaneously. Release the pressed keys when the phone vibrates.
    Press Install software to start installing the software to your phone.
    Once the installation has been completed, the phone will restart. If your SIM has a PIN code, you will need enter your SIM PIN code at this stage.
