I updated my Lumia 1020 with Windows 8.1 and came across the error 80072f8f.

I searched solutions for this error and I opted for the hard reset.

However the native applications were uninstalled. I imagined it would be a restoration as occurs in notebooks.

But it simply deleted the native applications and has maintained Windows 8.1.

Is there a way to restore the device with native applications such as Nokia Pro Cam?

Is there a software to do that, a file image of the manufacturer to restore the phone?
