Contributing Windows 10 ARM Cellular Data

Dear WoA community, you may have heard about gus33000's latest cellular work that aims to provide full call/texting/mobile-data support for WoA builds past 18908. While he already is doing an amazing job at the RILServiceInit program , there are ways how we can help him. Cellular stuff was working f...

Re: Updating

Since you assume that Group Policy can only be edited in Professional editions of Windows 10, please understand that, while gpedit.msc is only shipped with Pro, the group policy is stored inside the Windows Registry thus you can edit them anyway.

Re: Phone disk preparation failed. Cannot prepare the phone for the deployment.

@Fuchur84: please before tinkering with your device like that do a complete backup of your phone , either using wpinternals partition backup or by booting into W10M and using the USB cable to a PC. There are many SIM related settings that could be lost (blocked phone numbers) or maybe even app setti...

Re: HUGE NEWS: Cellular on WoA Lumia just made a huge step forward

Quick update: gus33000 just stated that OS cannot communicate with the mobile implementation he has recreated. https://twitter.com/gus33000/status/1189560530761060353 One could think that cellular is hindered by another obstacle. But it remains to be seen if gus33000 can overcome this problem aswell!

HUGE NEWS: Cellular on WoA Lumia just made a huge step forward

It was known that in build 18912 MSFT had deleted a huge chunk of RIL API that was required for cellular connectivity. Thus on a Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL that was upgraded to Windows 10 ARM64 you could not longer do calls. https://github.com/WOA-Project/MSM8994-8992-NT-ARM64-Drivers/issues/24 It ac...

So has installing the Windows Device Recovery Tool helped you? Because you JUST have to install it, you do NOT have to use it. ;)

So I'm pretty much done with the normal 950 now.

Good theory, my friend. We share a world view. I do believe contractors are above the ideas of the people. You call them oligarchs, fair enough. And those guys pulled the strings so much for Windows 10 on phones to fail. It is a terrible fate. Missed oportunities. Tears have been shed.
