HTC 8X stuck on Windows 10 Mobile preview? You can now roll back with Windows Device Recovery Tool

If you own an HTC 8X and found yourself stuck on a version of Windows 10 Mobile that was mistakenly pushed out for unsupported devices, it looks like Microsoft has a way for you to get things back to normal. As noted by WindowsBlogItalia, the latest update to the Windows Phone Recovery tool, now known as Windows Device Recovery Tool, appears to support recovery for the HTC 8X, allowing users to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1.

To recap, Windows 10 Mobile build 10536 was mistakenly shown as available to download for a number of unsupported devices due to a bug with the rollout. The only solution for downloading to an unsupported device is to re-flash back to Windows Phone 8.1, and it looks like HTC 8X owners will now be able to do so with the Windows Device Recovery Tool.
