    It is highly recommended that you read at least the first three posts of this thread (maybe the first few pages - you want to have an idea of what you are getting into): https://forum.xda-developers.com/win...istry-t3445271

    Got it thanks, And I downloaded the windows 10 developer kit, hooked up phone , paired with system and deployed app using web interface as show here:
    c# - how to deploy windows phone 10 application to a device? - Stack Overflow

    After writing new 1024 values to registry, not noticing much of a difference.
    OneNote still opens slowly as does maps.
    Scrolling may be faster but closing all open aps using the Hold + Back button + Close on each one doesn't seem to move faster.

    Can you please tell me what exactly did you use from that page to deploy Interop Tools? I would need to deploy vcREG on my brothers phone, so I could interop/cap unlock it. If anybody knows an easy way, please tell me. Right now I'm installing Windows Software Development Kit, I hope I'll make it. I tried it before, and I couldn't figure it out.

    You really only need this for a phone with 1GB of RAM or less. But it works on any phone. Whether you see noticeable changes from it is up to you I suppose. Hence why it is an old tweak, still good to know though for many.

    Hi i'm new here and i have some questions about Interop etc. (also sry for my english, it's not my first language)

    I'm using a 640 Lumia Phone (Dual Sim, not LTE).

    I downloaded Interop Tools, rc3 didn't work for me, so i had to install the Preview version from the Store.
    I also downloaded and installed the following tools from the youtube tutorial

    If i start Interop Tools, i click first on THIS DEVICE and choose the WINRT Registry Provider.
    Then i go to Registry Browser and go the following Path (HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PagingFiles) HOWEVER the app always closes if i hit Session Manager, i cant get past there. Same happens if i go to Registry Editor and write the path from my own, after typing session manager it quits the app.

    I tried to enable Restore NDTKSvc and restarted my phone after that and then activated Interop/Cap Unlock and New Capability Engine Unlock, but even then the App closes if i hit Session Manager.

    Any Idea why? and how i can solve the problem?
    I really could need a little performance boost :)

    Hi, on a 635(512) I've tryed 256 1024, 1024 1024, 512 512, etc and all of them appears to have no impact on VM. System Reserved always shows Virtual Mem CERO bytes. Any ideas ? thanks

    I too have 635 with 512 mb ram.

    I followed these steps except for step 6 (Enable crash reporting, next, Enable Authentication) and 10 ("Interop/Cap Unlock", turn on "New Capability Engine Unlock"):

    also use this link to download interop and dependencies- this is Interop Tools Release Candidate 2 and worked for me.

    Should the new value show as the device's virtual memory after this mod? I edited the PagingFile registry on my 1020 to 1024 1024, and then 1280 1280, and although it is saved, when I go to Storage->System&Reserved , the virtual memory shows as 0. Why does it stay at zero? Should it be updated with the new value? Thanks in advance

    This is killer man! I used this trick and now my 930 runs like hell!
    MSN News loads news at double speed, the Store is as fast as in WP8.1 (almost).
    I am just disappointed that MS never implemented this as native in WPhone/WMobile, since improves a lot the user experience - i did not test this on the long period yet... let's see - and this tricks came out after years of frustration with WP!

    Great job man! Now my Lumia could have a sort of second life!

    Same here. I've change my Lumia 925 to 512 512 and system reserved virtual memory shows 0 bytes. Additionally, the system doesn't install any more apps updates (shows a message to free up disk space) even though I still have 9GB free on disk.

    Any ideas?

    Its understandable why they didn't: Most phones with 1gb ram, have 8gb storage. Using 1 of that just for cache, would have limited app and system memory a lot. And by the time you get to 2gb+ ram, there's not as much point. So the list of devices this is ideal for, isn't that big.

    Although the 930 isn't a slouch. It has 2gb of ram, and a decent processor - so its interesting you get performance gains from this.

    Out of curiosity, as a side topic, do you get app crashes, or bugs running windows 10 on your 930?

    I'm sort of curious about the device as a cheaper way into win10m, but doesn't seem too solid on windows 10 from peoples reports.

    I don't really think it's any different as my 950xl has it's fair share of weird behaviour, app crashes or reboots. Though I am now trying my first phone reset since TH2 so we'll see!

    Let me know if you find a difference :)

    Maybe doing all the upgrades and then doing a hard reset would provide the most stable system (less remnants)

    I can get the 930 refurbished at just 30% more (130 usd) than the 650 (new, can get for about 100 usd). Literally the only downside would be lack if microsd, as it matches or betters everyone other spec. AMOLED display, 4g, 2gb of ram, snapdragon 800. Camera seems tight too. Doesn't look quite as snazzy as the 650/950, but I've never been one to take looks over performance.

    However I guess refurbished is an issue to. They will have swapped the screen, frame, battery but the mic and internals might have some wear.

    Seems faster lol

    Been a day or so now, still trying to put everything back cause I opted not to restore from back up... the real test is when everything fully loaded back up and running. I've already had to reboot a couple times though.

    My 930 btw, has undergone a lot of resets.... Also note that anything after 15063.xxx you'll need to regedit to keep getting the feature updates that are on insider now.

    it will make your device faster
    tested on lumia 830 fast ring interop unlock
    Tried to change to 1024 1024, write failed.

    How about Facebook ? - does it load faster ? (well, Facebook is extremely slow to load even with faster Lumias, like 950)
    My Facebook is fine on Lumia 950, insiders Preview. Plenty fast.

    I've been tryng an testing on my ol' Lumia 925 for a couple of days.
    1)if I set to diferrent values eg 256 512 or 256 1024 or 512 1024 Virtual memory shows 0 and the phone is laggy as always
    2)Setting 1024 1024 Virtual memory shows 1.81Gb, but doing this makes updating an app bigger than 15Mb impossible. error shows no storage room left, despite having 7gb free of 14gb aprox.
    3)Setting to 512 512 Virtual memory shows 1gb
    In terms of performance I see a little improvment. Edge now seems to load web pages without the annoying reloading every time a lot of content are present on the web page. "Resuming" it still there (everywhere) but now it takes maybe just a second less?. Now between poin 2) and 3) I see no real difference so i left it at 512 512
