Just like it’s the case with PC version of Windows 10, Microsoft developers are tirelessly working on the new Windows 10 Mobile operating system. But, besides working on the new operating system for mobile devices, Microsoft’s team is also taking care of Windows 8.1, as they presented a hotfix for users of Lumia phones who had problems with multiple reboots.

Many owners of Lumia devices complained about a strange problem of ‘random reboots.’ Users from Mobile Community forum offered various fixes and theories about this issue, but none of them seemed to work. Luckily, Microsoft’s stuff heard about this strange problem with uncontrolled reboots, and they presented a hotfix to all users how have this strange problem.

Microsoft didn’t precise what is the cause of this problem, and we only have guesses of Community users, but what’s important is that the fix is available and it’s rolling out very fast. Over the last couple of weeks, Lumia users who faced the rebooting problem are reporting that they’re receiving a ‘critical update.’ This critical update addresses the random boot problem, and it definitely fixes the problem.

According to Nokia Discussions forum, Lumia devices hit by this issue are 520, 525, 620, 920, 1320, 930 and 1520, and Microsoft apparently managed managed to make a hotfix for all of them. According to Microsoft Community, “if you get a critical or important update notification on your phone, we’re letting you know that there’s an important update that will fix a particular problem. We recommend that you install any critical updates immediately.”

This update doesn’t bring any new features, as Microsoft probably saves them for Windows 10, but it fixes one annoying problem and helps Lumia users enjoy the last months of using Windows 8.1 operating system, before they switch to the upcoming Windows 10 Mobile this fall.
