    Since the Lumia 2520 is almost exactly the same hardware as the Lumia 1520 (which runs Win10 ARM pretty nicely)

    I'm hoping we can figure out how to get Win10 on a 2520.

    The Lumia 2520 is around $55 on ebay and expected to drop lower.

    With 10 hour battery life and 3 more hours in the keyboard and still running 1080p Netflix.

    Win10 compatible touchscreen and insteon home automation with "devices as live tiles"

    It also accepts SIM, and can pretend to be smartphone.

    I'm really hoping we can figure out how to get Win10 on a 2520. It should be even easier than the Surface RT!

    I would like to give this a try as well. My 2520 is about three years old and is still going strong. I wish it had more on board memory, but other than that it works great for me.

    I would love to do something like this as well. I love this thing but the ram management is starting to be horrendous. I can only have 5 IE tabs open at once before it runs out of ram or the video driver crashes.

    I doubt this device can handle windows 10 on arm. If it even did. Probably be really laggy since it's not a 835 cpu and with only 2gb of ram.

    My Lumia 1520 runs Win10M fine, and its not laggy. I've been told its the exact same hardware as the 2520, just a bigger screen. Anyway, the 2520 is down to $35 on ebay. Its 1080p and has 10 hour battery life!! really need Win10m!!! thanks

    thanks k4955, but it looks like that link is for getting unsigned apps to run on Windows RT. I want to disable secure boot and install a different (non obsolete) Operating System like Windows 10 ARM or even Android.
