    Just so your aware......a Surface Phone what ever it is, when it is released, will more than likely be small form factor Tablet that is folding. Maybe into a phone size.....only Microsoft knows. It will be a Windows 10 on Arm device ....guess.....

    What is being talked about are hackers who are loading Windows 8.1 and 10 on arm onto older Nokia and Microsoft Phones.

    So much like the old HTC HD2 this is not being done by Microsoft........

    So again I have no idea what competition you refer too......

    My guess is your an Android or iPhone fan just looking to bash things. Maybe iMore or Android Central should be your forum.

    Some here are enjoying watching a hack start to form, and may have an interest in seeing where it goes.

    However I don't think many here are "past" Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

    So do you have anything to say that is not a bash on Windows????

    Ahhhh no worry, just had me confuzzed :)

    My brain is rather side tracked about this, seeing as this may be the 3rd hack of this nature I get to watch from the start.

    The Casio BE 300 ( Windows CE ) a PDA that had it's top menu replaced with the Shell and explorer from another CE device. That went on to run Pocket PC apps as it could flip between CE Desktop and Pocket PC UI. Once Windows Media Player got hacked onto it Casio killed it, as they had the much more expensive Casio E125 to sell.

    The HTC HD2 was fun to watch Microsoft get caught out, saying new hardware was needed for Windows Phone 7 so Windows Mobile 6.5.3 was the second place prize......oops then Windows Phone 7 and then Android popped on the screens of HD2 users :)

    If I have any advice at all, is wait until someone Official states a Stable ROM is available. Don't muck about with Rom flipping until the word Stable is attached. Avoid the Brick !!!!!
    ahahaha I remember you from the days of the casio be-300 days and pocket pc forums! good to see your still kicking around!

    Amazing that it can run on a SD400 and 1GB of RAM. Even the Tegra units had 2GB.

    I have a half bricked (won't boot past the Windows Logo) 1520 I am using at the moment to explore with. The issue I am facing right now is I have to re-learn all the bcd and newer bcd syntax and definitions. I found a good source information for that though. Since I am learning it as I go I am also learning the best way to test newer bcd entries quickly and find that putting them into a batch script is the easiest for me. Someone on xda compiled grub2 for lumias and I got Grub2 to load up and had to go re-learn some of the entries from that too...Good stuff! Great fun..

    I've shelved it for now. The Xperia X is still on Sailfish, I'm just not carrying it. LOVE the UI. I just couldn't get enough of the Android apps to play nice as I thought I would be able to. Someone traded me a mint-ish DTEK50 for a Lumia 1020 and I tried it out. Seems BB solves so many of my Android peeves I've simply kept carrying it...

    I do need to fire up the X and check for updates. Better Camera would be nice. They really downgraded what the Camera does vs Android and Sony even helped them with Camera drivers. Couldn't get Open Camera or the Cam2.API's working. No app for my online only Bank (or at the best there was an app but something about the emulation layer most likely kept it from authenticating me in), I hadda use browser. No Motion Core support. I walk a lot on my job and have grown very used to tracking steps. The Amazon app store is not as full as one would believe either. (NO Play Store possible - even with the Alien Dalvik on board).

    If you like the dtek50, the dtek60 is a much better device. Just out of curiosity what is the attraction to convert these devices to Windows RT? Wasn't that EOL long before W10M?

    Yep, I'm looking for a good deal on a DTEK60.

    My RT tablet still gets updates. It's feature final, but not EOL yet. It's lightweight yet powerful. I enjoy the RT experience. If you are stuck on WP8.1 a conversioon to RT could extend the life of a device.

    Looks like the 950 XL has a workable W10 ARM 64 image for it now. Is in the Alpha stages but what counts is that the developers working hard succeeded in getting W10 ARM64 OS to install properly on it...then shared the way.
