    How to roll back from Windows 10 Preview to Windows Phone 8.1


    Yesterday, Microsoft released a new update to the Windows 10 Preview for phone and you've probably realized that it is far from being finished. While you had fun checking out the Preview, you may want to go back to a more stable build. If you want to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft has made it really simple. You'll need a computer, your phone, a USB cable, and the Windows Phone Recovery Tool.

    Watch our step-by-step instructions on video.

    One thing about that blog I find unforgivably unprofessional and he should be fired is step 5:

    There's a disclaimer that suggests to backup your phone. Tap continue at the bottom.
    Telling people to skip the backup is so totally wrong.

    maybe the preview was unprofessional....on my phone the Lumia 520 the phone and camera were the only thing that worked after the preview was loaded. But I knew the risks, luckily the 520 is only about $40.
