    Mobile TP: Lumia 920 - cant roll back to win8


    Hey, I signed up in the first spots for technical preview on my Nokia Lumia 920. However its been months already when the TP group decided not to upgrade TP for Lumia 920s. This causes me to be stuck on the most battery-draining build of it.

    When I try to rollback the device via phone itself -> it goes to win10.
    When I try to rollback the device via Windows Device Recovery Tool -> it goes to win10 AND it doesnt even suggest me to go back to 8.

    Am I stuck with this phone with most retarded version of win or what should i do with it? I want 8 back for wife.

    Sorry if its on a wrong spot in the forum, moderators may move it if needed.

    Hi Batlhiz

    While I would normally never recommend another forum, you might want to try this place as well. There is a section dedicated to your device and it is very active.

    Thanks for link. I changed the 95 to a 64 and now I can "enjoy" the 640 version.
