    My Verizon HTC 8X has been stuck on the gears screen for the past few hours. Is there anything I can do? Or is my phone basically dead? I have tried powering the phone off, but it just restarts and goes directly to the gears screen.

    On a Nokia, I hold down Vol DOwn + Power and wait for 3 vibrations, if i release on 1 vibration its a soft reset whereas 3 vibrations is hard reset (complete format).

    HTC 8X hard reset

    Timing is critical, if you miss 1 split second the try is gone and you have to start from the scratch.

    Remember you'll loose all the data on a hard reset.

    If it still does not work, opt for warranty clause.

    This same situation happened to me yesterday and it took over 5 hours for my phone to update. Was unusable during that time frame.
