Microsoft forced to pull Windows 10 Technical Preview for some Lumia phones following reports of bricking Microsoft has decided to pull a recent build of its Windows 10 Technical Preview for a few of its cheaper, low-end Lumia smartphones after early testers reported their phones bricking after the update.
The affected models are the Lumia 520, 525 and 526, which is a shame given that the phones are some of the most popular Windows devices Microsoft/Nokia has launched to date.

"We are seeing some reports of failures on Lumia 520/525/526 devices when trying to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1 using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool. We are pausing build availability for these devices temporarily while we investigate the issue and work with customers who have reported problems," said Microsoft.

The build in question is 10051, released last week to the Windows Insider program for 'Fast Lane' users who are willing to work with buggier operating systems get quicker updates.

Microsoft should be quickly working on a fix for the build which is an important milestone for Windows 10 thanks to the addition of the Project Spartan browser.

The more things Change, The MORE they stay the same with Window$.
More Dollars then SENSE.
Even the NEW Management doesn't comprehend/see the ego problems which prevail within their derived culture at Redmond. Decades of Management oversights and counting.

Seriously! It's a tech preview, it should be buggy. Go back to watching Apple commercials or something.

I agree!

This kinda complaining is likened to the nonsense crap that Amazon customers do when they give a terrible 1 star review for a product that just happen to arrive defective.

Misguided putzes!
