Forget the Service Center, Nokia releases Software Recovery Tool for Lumia devices Written by Manish Singh on February 05, 2014 - 09:39AM
Back in the Symbian days, Nokia had a tool called Nokia Software Recovery. This tool allowed one to wipe the internal software, as well as data, and an option to reinstall the software. Sadly, as soon as Lumia devices hit the market, Nokia removed the tool. Today, Nokia Care has released the Software Recovery Tool for Lumia devices, and just as before, the app does a wonderful job.
First spotted by the guys over at WPDownUnder, the tool will help you recover your phone if it is having software issues or problems while installing an update. "Use the Nokia Software Recovery Tool to recover your phone if you have software or software update problems. If your phone is not responding, it appears to be stuck or is not starting you can try to recover it at home before initiating a repair," Nokia Care writes.
The tool automatically detects your device and downloads the data accordingly. Nokia has stated that depending on your device, the tool may download as much as 4GB of data. There are a few more things you should know, the tool needs Windows 7 or higher to run, and it is very important that you make a backup of your existing data, unless of course the device is bricked.
Some users have already confirmed that the tool is working fine for them. The device will surely come in handy as you won't have to run to the customer center that often. Hit the download link below to grab the tool.
