Re: My theory on the demise of Windows Phone...

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.

Hello gilius, did you try this tutorial? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkE9SJOgGLM It is up-to-date until you get to the WoA installer part, just use WoA deployer from here (I used version 2.6 and it worked).

Re: Camera button broke

I have this weird hack for you so you can at least still boot into Windows 10 ARM...

Use EasyBCD to change the boot configuration so that Windows 10 ARM is before Windows 10 mobile.

Re: Restoring after deploying WoA

Nice tutorial. I like it especially because you show a way which avoids official Microsoft recovery tools (like Windows Device Recovery Tool or over-the-cable updater).

Please take my suggestions with a pinch of salt. 1) seeing that you never mentioned the topic "relock",...

Re: Deploying another windows image error

Hello goverweg, nice to see you in our little WoA community. :) First let's try to understand your situation: 1) what tools are you using to "deploy" WoA? are you implying to use WoA Deployer? or is it the older WoA Installer? 2) if you are using WoA deployer did you make sure to clean the downloade...

Re: Lumia 950 - No networking working

I verified that you can replace the Wifi driver using device manager just fine. But there are some drivers like the GPU driver that cannot be updated this way (they usually get updated in Windows 10 Mobile using those spinning gears). Please look at this Github issue for further details: https://git...

Re: HDD on USB not waking up

My setup does spin up, at least, I'd say. Yours sounds more advanced than mine because of multiple disks. One problem I realized was that pressing the power button on my Lumia 950 puts it into energe saving mode (it does not simply disable the screen). Also the standard Windows 10 ARM config by gus3...

Hello baudl, I think it helps people understand your problem if they understand your setup. I assume that you have a Lumia 950 (XL or non-XL?).

Re: Bootloader unlock always fails

Have you tried manually interrupting boot process and then changing the phone's status? Hopefully you get this problem sorted out. On my Lumia 950 I never had the gears appear to me (just red and green flashing screens). Maybe try preventing the gears by interrupting the bootloader.

Hey. I recommended redeploying Windows 10 ARM64 because with the 1909 driver pack WLAN does actually work.

Re: Lumia 950 - Stuck on INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE BSOD

Back in April I had many BSOD errors just trying to boot Lumia 950 Windows 10 ARM64. All has been resolved once gus33000 actually tested on a Lumia 950 himself, porting the drivers and stuff.

Re: State of WOA and the community

You can help by donating to gus33000:



He works on drivers for Lumia 950/XL. Also a good idea to split donations to the other buddies aswell (woa-dialer project, wpinternals).

Re: Do you think we will see another Windows Phone

I'd like to see Andromeda released. Windows 10 has matured a lot since 2017. But they did remove the Windows Phone dialing stack (a bad sign). And now they focus on this dual-screen Centaurus tablet PC. So I'd say: no more phone devices from MSFT. IMO big shame. :(

Windows 10 ARM64 on my Lumia 950

The latest driver pack from gus33000 and his buddies actually works pretty well on my Lumia 950. I installed Windows 10 ARM64 build 18908 (last one with the Windows Phone dialing stack) dual boot with wpinternals, WoA deployer and stuff. Pretty fun project for tech savvy guys. Do you mind a showcase...
