Official: roll back from Windows 10 Technical Preview to Windows Phone 8.1 with recovery tool

Official: roll back from Windows 10 Technical Preview to Windows Phone 8.1 with recovery toolThe Windows 10 Technical Preview is expected any day now, and in the meantime Microsoft guy Gabriel Aul can’t resist spilling more details.

Here we’re learning that users of the Windows 10 Technical Preview will be able to use a recovery tool to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1. Splendid.

The news is shared by Ubergizmo, and again we’re spying on Gabe’s twitter. Last week Gabe told us to expect 512MB support for the Windows 10 Technical Preview.

This week, Gabe tweets: “Yes, we'll have a recovery tool to roll back for all phones that are supported for the preview.”

The release of the Windows 10 Technical Preview has been teased for this week, as has a video detailing lots of new Windows 10 features. There’s a very real possibility that they’ll arrive together before the week is out.

Earlier this week, Joe Belfiore specifically confirmed that the Windows 10 Technical Preview will be tested on the humble Nokia Lumia 520, which has just 512MB of RAM and a dual-core processor.

And just yesterday we relayed the news that Windows 10 is tipped to hit RTM (release to manufacturers) by June, which means we should see the first new Windows 10 devices in August, perhaps including a new Microsoft Surface.
