The device, which originally ran Windows Mobile, was shown by gadget modder @imbushuo running the phone with a desktop interface.
Except using networks cause the phone to overheat. And it becomes a tablet because there’s no code for Windows 10 to run the phone.
Try it yourself:
1) WPInternals 2.4 to unlock bootmgfw
2) 1st shim: https://github.com/imbushuo/boot-shim …
3) Kickstarter: https://github.com/imbushuo/lk (msm8994-test-2 branch)
4) UEFI: https://github.com/imbushuo/Lumia950XLPkg … (Get Linaro toolchain and EDK2 ready)
Second, it means that (if the phone thing is sorted) that we could see the fabled Surface phone (possibly called Andromeda) soon.
Realistically, it’s too small for everyday use, but the 950XL revival just goes to show – Microsoft can make a multi-form factor operating system if they just put a bit less thought into it. µ
