Just like it’s the case with the PC version of Windows 10 Technical Preview, people are tirelessly testing the mobile version, as well. But if you decide to stop testing Windows Phone 10 Technical Preview, you can easily go back to your old OS with an updated Windows Phone Recovery tool.

The tool was previously called Lumia Recovery tool, but it has been updated to support non-Lumia devices, HTC One M8 for Windows, recently. The main reason for the new update is a lots of negative feedbacks from insiders. Because some people complained that after they perform a recovery to Windows 8.1, they phone is left bricked. The software has been upgraded from 2.0.3 version to 2.1 version. So naturally, this update brings a lot of bug fixes and is more stable and safer to work with.

If you’re not familiar with Windows 10 Phone Recovery tool, you can check out our article about rolling back your current Windows Phone 10 Technical Preview to Windows Phone 8.1 using Windows Phone Recovery tool.

People are often deciding to rollback to Windows Phone 8.1 after some time of testing Windows 10, because it is still very buggy and no one will recommend you to use it as your primarily, everyday OS, but instead to install it on your ‘side’ phone. We still don’t have an exact information when the new (perhaps less buggy) build of Windows Phone 10 will come, but we shouldn’t wait much long for it, because people from Microsoft told us that new builds for Windows Phone 10 Technical Preview should be released on a regular basis, as the full version will be available sometimes in the fall this year.
