Recently, we reported about Windows Phone
Internals, a tool from a developer that allows users to
unlock the bootloader of Lumia devices. When a bootloader of a
Windows Phone is unlocked, users or developers can flash custom
ROMs on their Lumia device.
The developers have already revealed how they installed Windows
RT and Windows 10 ARM on their Lumia devices. Today, developer
Gustave has posted some photos showing off the Lumia 650
running Windows RT (WinPE).
For those unfamiliar with WinPE, it’s the Windows
Preinstallation Environment that basically allows users to
configure the installation of the operating system.
Given the track record of the developer, it’s likely that he
will be able to run Windows RT on Lumia 650. Obviously,
you can also hack your phone and run Windows RT but the process
is pretty risky and it may damage your device if you don’t have
much knowledge about the bootloader.
With that being said, Windows RT on Lumia may sound like an
interesting project but it’s still not visible in long run.
