Repair Nokia Lumia and HTC One Mobile Phones Using Software Recovery Tools

Many times we install lots of applications or games in our mobile phone and the phone becomes not responding or very slow due to some faulty apps or other obvious reasons. Sometimes we try hidden secret codes or PC software to play with our mobile phone functionality or to update its firmware with a new 3rd party unofficial firmware available on Internet which breaks our phone and makes it not bootable.

In such cases we have no option left except taking our phone to the service center and ask the mechanics to repair our phone. If the phone is out of warranty, we may also spend some money for the repair.

Wouldn't it be great if we could repair our mobile phone at home by reinstalling the firmware? Now its possible as Microsoft has released an official software recovery tool for Nokia and HTC mobile phones.

"Windows Phone Recovery Tool" (formerly known as Nokia Software Recovery Tool) is a free software which allows you to reset / recover / restore the software of your Nokia Lumia or HTC One mobile phone. It might become very useful if you want to reinstall software in your Windows phone.

This software can recover your mobile phone if you are having software or software update related issues. You can recover your phone even if its not responding, stuck or not starting at all.


This free tool can be installed in Windows 7 and later operating systems. The software first detects your mobile phone model and then downloads the required firmware files which might take lots of time depending upon the size of firmware files.

You just need to connect your mobile phone to your PC using USB cable and then run the software and follow the steps. If the phone is in working condition, don't forget to take a backup of your personal data as all data will be deleted during software installation.

Interested Nokia or HTC One mobile users can download this tool using following links:
