    Hi there,
    I have my lumia 720. it was working fine with amber, but then I tried to reset it and the cog wheel problem appeared. i brought it to Nokia Care and they solved the problems (and upgrade it to Black) but then all the sensors went dead. Can I use this NSU software to bring all the sensors back alive? Which method should I use? updater or no booting? thanks.

      Use not booting option and I hope your sensors are back again. However if it fails then Nokia Care guys can only help you in this matter….gud luck…
