Red nokia logo

Microsoft has released an update to their Windows Phone Reset Tool that intends to allow some phones to recover from the red Nokia logo screen (or a blank screen and nothing else in some models).

This new update on their reset tool will also allow Lumia 520 and Lumia 521 phones to get the Windows 10 Technical Preview updates on “Insider Fast”.

Recover from the red Nokia Logo

Microsoft has recommended the following steps:

  • Plug the phone using an USB cable that can charge the device as well as transferring data
  • If the Windows Phone Reset Tool is open, please, close it and open it again in order to get the update. The update should be 1.2.4 (or higher)
  • Once the update has been installed try the flashing process again.
  • If the phone is not recognised, click on “My phone was not detected” and continue
  • Details of this method has been posted here.
