According to a couple of HTC 8X owners, they have been reporting various problems after installing the preview version of Windows 10 Mobile. Here’s what one of them has been saying:

After installation of Windows 10 insider preview my phone is still rebooting. Windows Phone Recovery Tool doesn’t have package for HTC 8X to recover.

For the time being there doesn’t seem to be an official solution, but a Microsoft representative has reached out and advised that those affected by the problem should perform a Soft Reset in order to solve this.

But this isn’t the single issue that HTC 8X owners have been reporting. Another quite long thread on the Microsoft support forums details how the device ‘goes dead’ after installing Windows 10 Mobile Preview.
