Microsoft Yanks Windows RT 8.1 Update
On Saturday, Microsoft temporarily pulled the update from the Windows Store following reports that it was bricking some devices on which it was installed. This just two days after it was officially released.
“Microsoft is investigating a situation affecting a limited number of users updating their Windows RT devices to Windows RT 8.1,” the company said in a statement posted to Microsoft Community. “As a result, we have temporarily removed the Windows RT 8.1 update from the Windows Store. We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience. We will provide updates as they become available.”
Microsoft did not say how long Windows RT 8.1 will be unavailable. The company has not yet responded to a request for comment or provided further detail on the situation.
