    Take a look at these (hidden MAC addresses for security reasons)
    Someone made a little custom ROM for me for Huawei W1 & Nokia 520 devices supposedly containing Windows Phone 8.1 features.

    It is pretty cool, and I enclose two pictures.
    1) A photo image of the about screen
    2) A screenshot of the about screen, with MAC address and other details that have been removed

    I'll have to ask the guy who created the custom ROM.

    I found some ROM tools from a Polish Windows Phone site, and flashed the software onto my phone via USB.

    Just a quick warning though, the custom ROM I have is based upon the leaked developer previews from the SDK of Windows Phone 8.1. I would recommend that you have a test device!

    Haha, best joke I've heard in a while!
    I switched from my Nokia 100 to a Huawei Ascend W1-U00!
    By the way, I attach another screenshot, which shows an extra large tile, just like in Windows 8.1

    The leaked SDK does not even list the support of Large tiles for WP8.1

    Well one can't port SDK features over to the described Phone because the SDK does not contain ARM compatible files, it's a x86 build of Windows Phone to be run in Hyper-V :)

    He just has a custom rom. That absolutely no one else has. Polish tools that no one else has as well.

    You are missing the huge "NOPE" on the Big tile on what i posted, also the tile sizes are still only 3, if it were to include Large it would need to be 4.
    What's new are the types, not sizes, which were previously only 3, now they support the same functionality as Windows 8.1

    Here is the page before the 2 pages i posted. (it shows current functionality)


    Really who knows, at least right now it doesn't look like they planned for big tile support, but maybe it's still coming.

    This is ultimately a custom ROM which was created by someone!
    It is not a full version of WP 8.1, it is made to look like Windows Phone 8.1, and it is based upon the SDK version.

    I'll get in contact with the person who created the ROM and find out more information :-)

    Some features like Navigation bar, Action Center, OneDrive, Seperate volume controls, VPN and unified apps (WinRT & WinPhone) aren't included.
    However, features like large tile support, power sense and a podcast application are included.
