    Ok, here's what happened:

    1. Backed up my Q10 with Link successfully.
    2. Downloaded and installed the 10.2 hybrid posted in Kris' thread. This also successfully.
    3. Connected to Link again to restore from the backup. Failed. Tried several times....failed!
    4. Attempted to restore to factory default. Now I see a symbol like a microchip in the middle of the screen and the spinning blue circle below.

    Have I bricked this thing??????

    Looking for some help, please...

    Thank you in advance.

    It took a while, but it recovered. I re-installed 10.2 successfully, but couldn't restore.

    Finally, I downgraded to and restoring now...does this mean that Link doesn't support 10.2 backup/restore yet?

    For future reference, that icon is a security wipe

    Thanks, Kris!

    I tried the same thing with my Z10, and can't restore from the backup with Link. Guess I'll downgrade to a 10.1 leak. Definitely has to be a Link problem.

    Which version (full or hybrid) would you currently recommend? (there's an assortment out there)

    I just noticed I lost the camera flash in the Q10 with the update.

    Just small question..

    Is there a way to have 10.2 sideloaded with some of 10.1 apps to solve the symbols issue in 10.2?

    If I try and mix some of 10.1 and 10.2 will I reach to something?
