Tip: How to fix a bricked Nokia Lumia 920

Some of you in the forums and comments have been noting that you are getting a "bricked" Lumia 920's after doing a reset. The term is technically not correct here as you can revive the phone with a neat little trick. The fix reported so far was just returning the device to the store, which is far from ideal especially if you bought it online. Thankfully, the Windows Phone Central Forums came through with a trick that should get your bricked 920 back up and running.

The instructions are detailed and concise and include a video to help get you back in the game. Read on to fix it.

Microsoft comments on the Update woes

A Microsoft Spokesperson took the time to answer a few questions on the recent Windows Phone 7 update problems. Microsoft has identified a technical issue with the Windows Phone update process that is acting too kindly towards Samsung Windows Phones (both the Omnia 7 and Focus). They are in the process of taking down the update for the Samsung Phones with the update remaining in place for others.

How many users are affected?  According to Microsoft,

"Worldwide, we’ve seen a 90% success rate for customers attempting to install this update. Of the remaining ten percent, the top two issues encountered are the result of customer internet connectivity issues, and inadequate storage space on the phone or PC. These account for over half of the reported issues with this update."

Microsoft hopes to have the "technical issues" resolved shortly and re-distribute the update as soon as possible.

Oh...and Microsoft's response when asked what customers should do if their Windows Phone was bricked or put "in an unrecoverable state" as a result of the update, Microsoft recommends contacting your mobile operator or device manufacturer regarding the options for repairing your device.
