I have the factory restore utility available for the 3T but not sure how to upload it or link to it since it exceeds the allowable upload size limit. It's a 1.2GB 7z file.

Split it up with WinRAR and then upload it to gdrive, Mega, mediafire... The server is up to you!

I'm trying it. It's just a matter of time before I need something like this ;;)

I'm ~30% done so should be downloaded for me in ~60-80 minutes+.

Thanks.

I've got the file downloaded, unpacked, and am wondering if there's a README that came with it? I can see a lot of the usual ways to use the components via fastboot, etc, but thought this was meant to be a .. "utter disaster recovery tool" ;;). Or am I missing something?

Yes, it is and utter disaster recovery tool.
You may need the qualcomm drivers - 64 bit windows driver is attached. I believe mine autoinstalled without needing the files
**** NOTE: This procedure will completely wipe your entire device ****
To use the recovery tool.
1. With the phone turned off, press and hold the volume up button while inserting the USB cable attached to your PC.
2. Windows will recognize the Qualcomm driver and if you're lucky will auto install the driver.
3. Run the MsmDownloadTool V3.0.exe file with administrator privileges (right click and run as administrator)
4. One of the lines in the window should show COMM or something that is not "No Device" when your phone is attached and recognized as the Qualcomm loader
5. Click on that line item, then select Start
6. The whole procedure should take about 5 minutes and the line item will turn green when completed.

Thanks, that seems very useful. Thanks for making it available here.

No problem.
I've used a very similar tool previously for my oneplus one which would not power up Hopefully I won't need it for my 3T !

Can we make this a sticky or mention in the OP the recovery procedure from post #5? I know this will become invaluable later on as the few devs that bought this phone start fully getting into test mode.

You should place this in general with the guides in the op with some pictures , I think many will benefit rather than diving through the QnA section for it
