    Yeah, I am installing to the phone - just checked, but then again, I just realized that I don't have my SD Card installed - lent it to my dad for his work. Do I have to have an SD Card as well? It IS mandatory, isn't it? That's beside the point.

    Thanks, man :D
    Please read the instructions carefully, they are written for a reason.

    Thank you, Panka :D I did see them; however, I directed the path to Desktop/WPSystem_0500.xap, and it now says App Deployment Complete?

    Well if you see the app in the app list then you are good. Next step is to get that sd card back from your dad :)

    Ok what you need to do to make this work is to start with a fresh install.


    I didn't try your method 😋😋 (sorry for that), but I managed to deploy the latest version of customwpsystem_006 and it works like a charm, now I want to edit this registry but didn't find it under registry option , earlier I have this registry key and I edited it, but now it's not there , Can you confirm it whether it is present in your phone or not ....

    While we're at it, might as well make some changes like these:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Theme\UserPreferenceWidth
    Want 5 row action toggles on your phone? Then this is for you! Create this dword and put a value of 75! This will give your phone that 1520 screen estate, meaning tinier text, tinier buttons, tiny everything! Change value back to 0 and delete the dword to revert back to default.

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\OEM\SystemTray\DataConnectionStrings\
    also in this location is your mobile data status. Fool yourself and or your friends by changing the appropriate string (depending on your mobile connection) to 4G+ or 5G, or even go crazy by showing $$$.
    Take note of the changes you make in here, that's the only way to revert back to default without performing hard reset.

    HKLM\SYSTEM\Platform\DeviceTargetInfo\PhoneMobileOperatorDisplayName
    if you want to show off your awesome carriers name in the about page. More on this here!
    Any additional strings you make in here can be deleted if you don't want it anymore.

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\OEM\ThemeCPL\OLEDWarning
    change value to 1 if you want to fool yourself and or your friends that your screen is OLED and if using the white theme, should also show a warning about battery drain on LCD. More on this here!
    Just put it back to 0 if you don't want it anymore.

    There are many more! But unfortunately we can't change their values like export to sim toggle and VoLTE swtiches.
    Good luck!

    It didn't add 5 action centre to my phone due to small screen (L520), however with userpreferencewidth registry change I get the small text which is helpful in some places...

    Anyone got the registry key and value to get maps to point to SD card? I think Lumia Storage Check beta must have used a registry hack, because maps stayed on SD card even after the app was uninstalled. I'm thinking its in the registry. If someone can find it, I'll be happy to test it.

    That registry key is protected hence not changeable on Lumias (yet)

    What you need to do is edit the registry with the values HIGHSCREEN, WinWin and 000-88 in its respective sections. To edit in these sections just tap the Write button. Then tap start go settings, phone update and the update will start downloading (takes 20 mins to find update so sit tight it will download) if it gives you an error you might of not put the right reg edit in the right section.
    **You put this in the DeviceTargetingInfo section in HKLM/software/platform/devicetargetinginfo

    I'd suggest doing a reset if your phone. It will freshly install update 2 and it will be much quicker.

    Is there a way to make the interface "bigger"? Bigger button bigger text bigger everything? Kinda like to increase DPI settings on Android devices. For old-eyes sake.

    Needs at least 720p.

    That would be in a different path, OS-level and not possible to be tampered with this app.

    while the rest are more gimmicks this one looks very useful. Before I give this a try, does somebody have a screenshot of what this looks like on the L830 perhaps? Too small?

    PS: where is this from? XDA? I haven't been there for a while. Thanks!
    No screenshot but interface is passable if you have sharp eyes, like the system tray icons would be as small as, if not smaller than those found on iP6. The only thing not affected by this edit is the keyboard and some 3rd party apps, they don't scale. Like you know those 3rd party apps that you install on a 1520 and not scale. And yes a couple of these are from sea like a year ago, the other two can be found at Microsoft website along with other tweaks that we can't edit.

    not sure what I am missing. I made the registry change, it sticks after reboot/soft reset and I do notice that I see "loading..." for some things that opened faster without the reg entry. But I can't figure out how to change the rows. It is still the same as before....

    edit: Tried this a few more times but although the registry entries stick, nothing is changing. I think I need to drive to Columbus to get this to work ;)

    So this past Saturday, I followed this guide and successfully updated to GDR2 with Denim on my Lumia 635 from AT&T. Now, today, AT&T officially released Denim with GDR2 to the Lumia 635. Missed it by 4 days to get it legit.

    Ah, well, I've got it. I won't worry about it.

    For anyone else that's got a Lumia 635 from AT&T that was thinking of trying this, just do a normal phone update. It will be easier. ;)

    Actually if you want to re-brand your device and go back to AT&T's firmware then just set the following registry entries:

    PhoneMobileOperatorName >> ATT-US
    PhoneManufacturerModelName >> RM-975_1035

    Looking at the video in Italian the guy uses the same exact steps that Pankaj listed. It shows the process all the way to entering the registry on his L830. Some of that comes from XDA apparently
    doesn't help me much with my problem. Will have my Italian friend translate this to see if I missed something.
    Don't mean to hijack this thread...but I tried to interop unlock on my 830, but failed. I could do it on my 1520 and 635 though. lol -This goddam 830. xD

    @pankaj981 - I just replied to your PM. Super sorry I just saw your message till just now. I've been using the app on the phone and I rarely check my messages. lol

    Are you talking about getting the 5 columns on the 830? - Make sure you add entries like this exactly --- I believe you probably forgot to select under the Type box "Integer - DWORD -32bit...

    Should look like this:

    Here's what it looks like on my 830: IMO I freaking love the font size now. SOOO MUCH BETTER!

    Pankaj I don't know, because it is a very new tutorial published on 10th june, so know body knows what is the ability of this tool , and also I don't know about admin permissions and all that technical stuff.. But if you know, you can try this on your backup phone and give us your reviews... That would be helpful for us... 9696

    If you have the official Denim firmware from MS then you get the prompt to install Update 2 automatically once you enroll in W10TP through Insider. Have you tried that already? If not make sure you first uncheck "automatic download updates" under settings to auto download W10 after Update 2.
    I havent had a chance to try anything yet but I will be trying it today. To get the update 2 after Denim
    Install windows insider which will update to update 2 and then uncheck auto update to stop getting windows 10.
    Will this suffice or any precautions to be taken to make sure than win 10 doesnt load?

    Cheers

    Never Mind
    . It is all done and the dust has settled. i can confirm that Update 2 is installed and I wont be looking at windows 10 as it has already checked for updates and it sees nothing. :)

    For those still curious and have Denim installed Please back up your device before you attempt anything and read on.....

    1. Install windows Insider app and sign up the fast track for installing win 10
    2. go to settings and uncheck "automatically download updates if data settings allow it" and check for updates
    3. It will show you that updates are available. Tap on more details before you do anything..
    4. So phones are meant to get Update 2 while going for win 10 TP and some go direct. If the version number shows 8.1.xxxx.xx then you will be gettings update 2 and if it shows 10.x.xx.xx then you are meant to egt W10TP direct. So choose now to turn back or go ahead.
    5. If you choose getting win 10 Jump to "7." if not read further. If you choose to get the update2 tap download button, go back to the apps list and uninstall windows insider right away or atleast before the install of update 2 begins..
    6. After uninstall of windows insider go back to the phone updates page and hit install which will prompt a reboot and you get update 2 without windows 10.
    Although this method worked for me on my 1020 it is not garunteed that it will stop here and not install W10.

    7. If you have windows 10 in sight read further if not jump to 8. For windows 10 TP just hit install, regardless of which update version you are looking at it will end up with installing W10 TP. Please ensure you have selected the "automatically download option" or check for updates manually.

    8. In case your device is heading direct to W10 TP and you dont need this to happen. Uninstall windows insider and hard reset your device or let the installation complete and this use the recovery tool to roll back to win8.1.
    Please Beware If the device shows update is available it will be force installed after a few days even if you postpone installation.

    nope, thanks for making sure I haven't forgotten anything. (I've done this many times over on other phones). It's exactly what it should be but I do not get any changes in columns....
    ​good to know it should work. I will keep trying.

    edit. OK, I actually had it but expected to see a change in tiles on main screen. I did have 5 columns all along - duh...
    can't open facebook app after this though, just crashes.
    edit: uninstall and reinstall works
