Microsoft Surface RT updates back on again, Windows RT 8.1 bugs fixed

A few days ago Microsoft pulled the Windows RT 8.1 update due to startup issues that a limited number of users experienced. According to Microsoft one out of every 1,000 Surface RT 8.1 updates were experience problems that bricked the devices.

Microsoft took the issue head on and pledged to work diligently to resolve the situation.  They even released a Windows RT 8.0 recovery image to restore buggered devices.

Just a few days after pulling the Windows RT 8.1 update, Microsoft has re-released the update complete all the bugs squished. Microsoft has apologized for any inconvenience this may have caused consumers. While it's unfortunate that a few updates to RT 8.1 went south, it is impressive the speed in which Microsoft has responded and resolved the issue.

If you haven't updated your Microsoft Surface RT to Windows RT 8.1 you can find the update here in the Windows Store on your Surface RT.  Let us know in the comments how it goes.
