    Didn't the 8x launch about 2+ years ago? It was a flop in sales. You can't blame them for dropping support.

    alright guys.... ive figured out how to flash Verizon WP8.1 to Android.........

    i suspect its the same to move from android to WP8.1 but i disliked windows phone so much i literally had to brick my device on purpose to be able to flash it to its ultimate/superior alter-ego........Android!

    ill be uploading files and screen shots and video proof and detailed instructions on XDA

    but be warned...... this route you do have to literally brick your device on purpose......not for the faint of hearts

    Why didn't you just buy the Android version?

    I'd happily upload the files and instructions today, but I only have less than 100mb of data that's why the wait until the Second weekend of February for release

    We await your proof then. The boys over at XDA will certainly appreciate it too.
    You probably don't want to string people along just yet until you have this bombshell ready to drop.

    I don't have, never had, and don't plan to buy the HTC One M8 for either Windows or Android. But I'd happily buy you more data so you could post your instructions immediately if there was a convenient way to do it!

    Did you try flashing it back to Windows?

    No, I haven't tried flashing back to windows, I don't have access to an ruu for the windows rom, it has some pieces I need to attempt it, and I will for the good of the community, once an ruu is either leaked or released

    For some reason I thought you went the other way- android to WP. In order to flash an android ROM you'd have to have somehow gotten android to match secureboot's keys and properly function in secureboot in general... Unless you're telling us you've managed to overwrite the bootloader, which is not a small feat either.

    Sorry, I do not doubt that it is possible- my doubt is just that XDA has gotten nowhere with it and someone on windowscentral a) managed to do it alone in an evening, and b) reported it to windowscentral instead of XDA.

    I mean... in my mind that's like the equivalent of NASA launching a probe to explore the moon Io, and finding that the DPRK's space program has a manned research station there!

    I've been on XDA for years, and also reported it there......



    I'll show everybody the EDIT SECOND weekend of February. I was only letting everybody know that it has been done, and will have a tutorial soon.



    Good day everyone.......



    Dumb luck isn't genius or anything



    And the method it has been accomplished with isn't new either



    Google and a will to try different things.........



    Also I'm close enough to NASA that it's possible that I learned how to from there...

    I dunno.... Don't have any non Verizon m8's to try with......



    But I'm sure any GSM capable device could do this



    Just have to set up different parts of the instructions to match that device.....



    But I'm very positive that the CDMA devices would just stay bricks

    Does anyone over here have access to any Windows m8 RUU?

    I don't care what carrier

    But it has to be official....

    If you do, I'll be able to write and upload a tutorial for Android users to play with Windows of they want

    I believe I saw a thread related to that in XDA.
    Don't lead people on too much without anything to show for.
