Finally the wait is over! Today I am proud to announce the immediate availability of Windows Phone Internals version 2.3. In this video I will try to answer some questions that were asked about supported models, Android on Lumia and Project Astoria. The tool can now be downloaded from the Download-section on this site. Have fun with it and let me know what you think of it in the comments!
Hi all! It's almost two years ago since my last release. But Windows Phone Internals 2.2 is almost ready. It beats the modern SecureBoot implementation. And furthermore, it brings custom ROM's, Mass Storage Mode, Root access and many more hacks to all Windows Phone 8 and Windows 10 Mobile-based Lumia-models. There is also a new Download-section in the tool, where you can download everyhing you need for your phone. Here's a short demo:
A small update this time. Changes in this version:
- Compatibility improvement for Windows 7. In previous versions "Enable Root Access" could result in "Failed to enable Root Access on MainOS".
- "Restore bootloader" now uses a different Flashing interface. Previously, when you restored the bootloader, you were forced to do a full flash afterwards. With this new method you can keep your current Windows Phone installation. Remember that you need to disable Root Access before you restore the bootloader.
- Many small fixes and tweaks.
This is my Xmas-present for you! Version 1.1 has a fix for the audio-issue when Root Access is enabled and it supports Root Access on the latest Windows 10 Mobile build 10.0.10586.36. You can find the new version of the tool in the Download section.
It seems there were extra integrity checks for playing media. I fixed this for audio-playback. I will create a generic fix later, but this will work for now. If you already have Root Access and you experience the Audio-issue, just "Enable Root Access" again on the phone.
Best Wishes for Peace, Joy and lots of Hacking in this Holiday Season!
My tool has just been released and cool hacks are already being created! These kind of things are really the reason I created the tool. Congrats to @TheWack0lian for this great effort. He managed to get Windows RT on a Lumia 520!
