Default Struggling to go back to 8.0 with Recovery Software

I'd like to go back to 8.0. I have O2 branded firmware, updated to 8.1 by the dev app means and that all went fine. However subsequently I've tried to use the Nokia Software Recovery programme to roll back to 8.0 and I just get an 'InternalError' message as soon as it starts to try and download the 8.0 firmware. I've also tried recovering by flashing the firmware for O2 via the software flashing guide on XDA but again it fails to download. I've made sure that Windows Firewall is off so it's not blocking the app.

Is there an issue with Nokia's servers or am I just doing something wrong?

My understanding - before I even updated to 8.1 - was that (unofficially) you could roll back quite easily as long as you have a PC and a bit of time available.

Hi. I installed on my windows 8 pc the nokia software recovery tool, plugged my phone and went back to 8 on my lumia 1020. No problems at all. Any chance your internet connection is bad?

is it possible to debrand a rm 877 lumia at&t 1020? i remember triying for some time to do this in the past but gave up after trying a couple of rom's. All failed verification or something like this, the program didn't allow them to be flashed.
i also used the guide in the link.
Current devices:
Xperia Z Ultra
Surface Pro 2


Doing Phone/Laptop hardware modding for some years. Seen a lot of broken things in my life.

The probable solution is a volume booster, or a jailbreak. Something we will not see in wp.
