    Hey guys! You may have heard news about it already:

    We have The Guide with the process to install the full Windows 10 ARM64 on the Lumia 950 XL. It's not the guide you heard before, BUT A VERY DETAILED ONE. Step by Step. It's not for dummies, but definitely not for low-level gurus.

    It guides you to installa the Full Windows 10 ARM64 version. Yes, full the desktop OS, with the x86 emulation layer and all.

    The Guide can be accessed here: https://1drv.ms/w/s!AtXoQFW327DIyLNkIoZYtXadj-mdww

    Also, there a Telegram group to assist people in the process: Please, join here https://t.me/joinchat/Ey6mehEPg0Fe4utQNZ9yjA

    We're currently looking for developers for the project because, at the moment, there are essential features missing like networking (Wi-Fi and cellular), Bluetooth and graphics acceleration.

    If you know anybody that could help, please, contact us here or in the Telegram group.

    Thanks!!!

    But the screen would be tiny, even in tablet mode, and the calling and texting functions won't work. If you could dual boot it this way, and the HDMI via usb-c still worked, then I could see a point in it.

    Otherwise it just seems like a weird little experiment for the heck of it. I mean, power to anyone that wants to do that of course...

    Reading this thread had me thinking that this is very much up your alley! I'm curious how this will go for you when you can find one, which I know that you will find.

    Remember that @nate0 is the same person that went through the process of finding a way to silence the Elite x3 camera. He did other things with that phone too, and also found a way to enable VoLTE for the unlocked 950.

    As I said before, he really is the ideal person to do this.

    Well if people can get the drivers working (wifi and 4g, the speakers), and get it to dual boot, it could actually be really cool. So good to have techy phone people working with it.

    I'm not sure why this would be worthwhile though? Sure, it sounds cool, but it'll be far from usable.

    Good news. We even have released a set of scripts to automate the process :) You can find a link to them in the Guide. I don't want to spam you all :)

    Hmm, but will it though? Cshell will probably come with windows core.
