    The 8x was never meant to get WP10 otherwise it would have been the 10x...
    Yeah, it would be fun that HTC release two new Windows 10 phones, 10S and 10X.

    Anyone tried this one? I would like to install it on my device but I'm not sure if it will work good enough or even work? I may not be able to restore it to 8.1..
    Do NOT put Win10 Insider Preview on your only phone! Just wait until it's either released or MS says it's supported. What's the big rush? If you brick your phone it's going to be your fault. Nobody to blame but yourself.

    Just sit tight and wait for the official word. Some stupid HTC Chat support rep doesn't know diddly-squat about what's going on.

    If your HTC 8x is your secondary phone that you don't care about, then fine.. go ahead and hack the crap out of it but from what I've read it's not. Just wait.

    Interesting. My HTC 8X has just down loaded Windows 10 Insider build 10536.1004 and is installing.

    Downloaded, installed, and now the tiles/icons/text is so small I can't read anything. Haven't found a way to make it normal yet. sigh

    I tweeted at Gabe Aul today asking about Win 10 for the 8X, maybe that's why it's out?

    I had turning gears with the progress bar at what looked like 100% for quite a long time and now it is rebooting. Not working, rebooting over and over.

    And guess what the recovery program is not finding any files to recover the phone back to Windows 8.1.

    I let it be rebooting and he did go live now! It's finishing the installation... but the signal and the battery simbol on the upper part of the screen are so so so small.. barely visible! :|

    I am resetting the phone using this guide (link under) the To reset an unresponsive phone part. Will update this to tell how progress is.

    Everything looks good so far. Restoring from backup now. Things are very tiny...

    My phone has been restarting for past 20-30 mins. Is there any hope it will complete the installation?

    My own eventually stopped restarting after multiple soft resets. It's finally up to the "We're Getting There Screen."

    I finally gave up on the rebooting and did the "Reset" in post 45. It then looked like it was going back to 8.1 but did the Windows 10 installation. It looks like it recovered most of my Windows 8.1 settings, but there is something way wrong with the screen resolution like mentioned in the posts above. Everything including the tiles are very small and do not fill out the screen. Not sure how they will fix it.

    Doesn't download the TP help?
    It's not supposed to.

    The reason for the tiny elements on the screen is a display scaling issue. An easy fix that hopefully MS will push in next update.
