Just like the Xiaomi mi 4, will all android devices be able to install windows 10 mobile?

Preferred Solution: Just like the Xiaomi mi 4, will all android devices be able to install windows 10 mobile?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Does anyone know if MSFT is working on installers that someone can buy/get and install it on some of the popular android devices???

Answer:Is there a way to install Windows 10 on Android devices like One Plus Two or Xiaomi Mi4?

Not even close! It's a whole world in terms of OS's! What MSFT did is create a somewhat called launcher (ROM) for the Mi4 (Xiaomi) but it's only tested from the inside (Privately)
So you better grab a Windows launcher in the Play store! Or you could search (If you are lucky) a torrent of the ROM and download it (If available) flash your Android phone and we'll... You got it!
But for now! Not even heard a word of it!

Answer:Microsoft is providing select Xiaomi users with a ROM to put Windows 10 on their Android smartphones

And who knows, perhaps this sort of thing could catch on to the point where handsets are sold as barebones devices that allow users to select the OS of their choice during the setup processClick to expand...

If you would have said that a year ago I would have laughed it off but not it seems like that might really be the way of the future.

There hasn't been any real innovation in the smartphone segment for the last few years, interchangeable parts on smartphones may very well be the way of the future, there just doesn't seem to be anyway to improve on what's already here without some drastic improvement like upgradability.

As far as making Windows 10 free to android users seems like a very smart move on Microsoft's part. There are currently more android phones in peoples pockets than any other smartphone. Making their OS free to them is a very easy way to get their OS in everyone's pocket.

Hi guys!
I'm currently a Lumia 640 LTE user. I'm very satisfied with this unit's performance and very impressed with windows 10 mobile despite it's occasional hiccups and persisting bugs, especially after coming from windows phone 8.1 with the Cherry Mobile Alpha Luxe. An acquaintance of mine is selling his Xiaomi Mi4 at an affordable price and although I despise the brand because of it's poor customer support (based on my personal experience with the Mipad), I'm thinking of buying it just to try out W10M on a premium hardware. My concern, however is that I am not so sure if the version of the W10M ROM available for the Mi4 is the old one or is it constantly updated and still updatable to current builds. Can anybody please shed some light on this? Thanks!

Answer:What is the latest build available for the Xiaomi mi4 on windows 10 mobile rom?

I have recently replace my 640 LTE with a Mi4 (the cheapest LTE versin, with 2Gb RAM) and goes much better, I Updated it to the last insider version in the fast ring and I'm happy with it.
Just one thing, only LTE versions of Mi4 had windows 10 ROM

Since Microsoft develops apps for android anyway, can't they develop some sort of virtualization so that we can run windows 10 mobile over android, this way even if other OEM's don't seem interested, least we can have variety of hardware to use. 950 doesn't cut for me, really like what other OEMs for android have and times have been compelled to just switch, but windows is holding me back.

Answer:Emulator/Virtual client for android that can run windows 10 mobile on android?

There is a WM10 rom for the Xiaomi Mi4 and currently run with a select group of testers. I'm sure if you look hard enough you could find the rom, however I wouldn't recommend force flashing it onto other phones as you are more than likely going to brick the phone or cause irreversible damage (without messing around with the flash storage)

Hi I have a very strange problem.Only our Apple devices will connect to our wifi.First let me explain our internet connection.
We have and pay for Internet through RCN cable However my husbands workplace gave him a juniper ssg5 router to connect to our modem so he can work from home a few days a week. He has a Cisco IP phone and laptop running windows 7 configured to connect directly to work via VPN. They also provided a second wireless net WPA for our family to use.

Here's the problem. As of yesterday none of our devices running Windows or Android will connect to the WPA network..Our Apple iPads and iPhone have no problem. We have two HP laptops one running Vista one running 8 and two Lg android phones.The problem seems to have started when I installed Firefox on my laptop running Vista then downloaded and started to install the Firefox app to my android phone.. Could that be the problem.? Then why would it effect my daughters phone and laptop also?

Oh btw hubby is Ocd about his network so although his juniper has two ports we should be able to use I don't see that happening until Friday after work he said he would call tech support then
Thanks for any insight you can give me

Yesterday, we leaked the official documentation for Project Astoria ? Microsoft?s Windows Bridge for Android which will allow developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 Mobile with minor modifications. Following the leak, the folks from China leaked the wconnect tool ? which is what we need to install Android apps on Windows 10 Mobile. After fiddling around with wconnect and the Android SDKs, I was able to Android app on my Windows 10 Mobile device ? and let me tell you, it?s awesome.

For those wondering, I installed Twitter, Slack and Snapchat for Android on my Windows 10 Mobile device.

Installing the Android apps on my Windows 10 Mobile device was fairly easy. I just downloaded wconnect, and the Android SDK (ADB part only), enabled developer mode and used the Command Prompt to install the app. If you?re wondering, no, I didn?t have to modify the APK ? I just download it from APKMirror and installed it without even modifying a single line of code.

So how?s performance of an Android app on Windows Mobile? It?s pretty good. I have not noticed any bug on the Slack and Twitter apps yet and everything seems to work pretty well. Unfortunately though, Snapchat doesn?t work as it requires Google Play Services ? however, I?m pretty sure someone will be able to get it to work after modifying the app and removing Google Play Services from the app.

Nonetheless, here are some screenshots of the apps:

This is something I've been wondering why Microsoft didn't do ages ago. If anyone can give me a technical/business reason not to, I'm open to being corrected.
That out of the way, here's my thought: why isn't Windows RT available to download onto existing Android tablets?
Now that Windows is free on small devices, wouldn't it be awesome/ironic/whatever to be able to go buy, say, a Nexus 7 and get it running Windows RT? Or for Android tablets running Intel chips, full Windows 8.1?
I can see not wanting people to get used to "buying" free full windows, but RT is essentially dead. Give it away to interested Android parties, sez I.
The concerns that occur to me are as follows.
1) A lot of devices with the RAM/storage to run Windows RT might have hardware that doesn't lend itself to the Windows 8 gestures. Those require a fairly large bezel around the screen, which some Android devices might not have.
2) Firmware. Without the proper firmware, a lot of machines that would get this upgrade might get bricked, which opens us up to...
3) Liability. You don't win friends and positive customer perception by irrevocably ruining their tablet.
Is there anything else I'm missing in this equation?

I tried to turn it on again, and it on.
I then tried to connect my Samsung, but can't.

I keep trying and still can't connect, and my Samsung always try to connect.
Then I turned the mobile hotspot off. and turned it on again. And still cant connect.
I turned the Wi-Fi off, and turned it on again, nothing.
I turned my Samsung Wi-Fi off, and on, and tried to connect, and still can't connect.

Hey guys,
I just set up Cortana as my main assistant on my secondary device, a Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen, and I've realised that it gives me headlines such as recommended news, local news, popular now, Windows 10 Mobile... whereas on my Lumia 830 (Windows 10 Mobile) and Windows 10 PC I am only getting science and technology news and top news. I've tweaked my interests via Cortana's notebook but it doesn't seem to make any difference. What am I doing wrong? It's annoying and frustrating that I'm getting much more rellevant news and headlines on Cortana for Android than on Cortana for windows. Any ideas? Thanks a lot for your help!

Answer:Why is Cortana on Android giving me many more headlines than on Windows 10/Mobile?

Ok, I solved my own "problem". The difference between Cortana on my Android and Cortana on my Windows devices is the region; since Cortana for Android is not yet available in the UK, the region was set to the US and therefore it was giving me better suggestions, because apparently Bing sucks anywhere outside the US.
I have changed the region on my Windows devices and now Cortana is much smarter. My question now is: will I be missing out on something if I live in the UK but have my devices' region set to the US? Regional format is still UK so things like currency are not a problem. I had to change the default language to US English but that is not a problem either.
Thanks a lot!

No, you cannot sideload Android apps on W10M anymore. As it needs the Android sub-system which Microsoft had loaded onto W10M but removed soon after. No one, probably, has tried to do that since then.
All the tutorials you'll find on the internet explaining the sideloading process are from mid-2015 when that was possible.

OK, so from what I have seen of Windows 8 it looks to be 1 OS that can run on both a desktop and mobile device with 2 GUIs. One is designed for touch screen and gesture input and the other is a more traditional destop PC input output config.

I know mobile devices are getting more powerful (my current phone is more powerful than my first Desktop) but the OS must have been really stripped down and use much less resource in order to run on a mobile device.

Therefor I am woring on the basis that Windows 8 mus absolutely fly on a desktop? Just thought I would see if anyone has a more educated view than myself?

I was under the impression that Lumia devices with 512MB RAM weren't going to be get getting the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update, however today I turned on my old Lumia 635 to double-check a question I replied to on this forum earlier and it updated itself to the Windows 10 Mobile 1607 Anniversary Update. Well, can't complain at that.

I have no idea why though, before updating it would have been on whatever 10586 insider build it was on back in about March when I reset it back to defaults and threw it in a cupboard.

Has anyone else received the 14393.67 update on a Lumia 635?




It seems a bit, err, confused... LOL

Answer:Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update For 512MB Devices?

My Lumia 635 also automatically downloaded the Anniversary Update. I wasn't even on the Insider program at the time - after using Insider to obtain the initial upgrade to Threshold 2, I left the program and switched the phone over to the Production ring. The day after the Anniversary Update went public, my phone automatically upgraded.

There are pretty showstopping bugs. Specifically, apps attempt to make use of the full height of the screen, even though the bottom 54 rows of pixels are dedicated for the permanent use of the navbar. That leaves some app content (most often action buttons) wholly or partially covered and inaccessible.

This is a bug with most (perhaps all) Windows Phones running the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update with a physical display resolution of 480x854 pixels, and an onscreen always-on navbar. Both unofficial devices like the 512 MB Lumia 635, and officially supported devices such as the 1 GB Lumia 638 or the Acer Liquid M330, are affected by this bug.

The fact that officially supported devices are affected makes me hopeful that, maybe, Microsoft may care enough to fix the bug for all affected devices in a subsequent cumulative update.

I've just converted to Windows 10 and the new Dropbox app. When I put a file on Dropbox I expect it to show up on the Dropboxes on my iphone and ipad there it doesn't. Files I put there while under Windows 7 show up but not anything I put there on Windows 10

Will someone give me an assist in this? I tried to find a way to post this question on the Dropbox Community Forum but could not.

I think that with Windows 8 created for PCs (desktops/notebooks), Tablets and Phones, Microsoft would achieve the required boost to achieve their goal to enter the mobile devices sector successfully, the next Windows from Microsoft should have separate versions for PCs (desktops, notebooks), Tablets and Phones. This would be much better for the users of each devices and it would also be good for MS as many alienated companies like Valve/Steam would return to Windows and won't try to create alternatives to Windows. What you think?

Answer:Separate versions for PCs, mobile devices in next Windows release!

Considering they were already doing that and are moving to one kernal and experience across all their platforms, I'd say highly unlikely to happen.

I was under the impression that Lumia devices with 512MB RAM weren't going to be get getting the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update, however today I turned on my old Lumia 635 to double-check a question I replied to on this forum earlier and it updated itself to the Windows 10 Mobile 1607 Anniversary Update. Well, can't complain at that.

I have no idea why though, before updating it would have been on whatever 10586 insider build it was on back in about March when I reset it back to defaults and threw it in a cupboard.

Has anyone else received the 14393.67 update on a Lumia 635?




It seems a bit, err, confused... LOL

Looking for a residential security system. Lots only offer apps for iPhone & android. One company said that I could not even access system via web access on cell phone. Please help. Thanks

Answer:Which residential security systems have apps for Windows mobile devices?

CPI's security systems is handled by Alarm.com. It can be opened in a web page then pinned to the start screen. It works just as good as logging in to CPI on my desktop computer. So, now I have an icon on my main screen that I just tap then it logs me in. I am using Lumia 950 XL with Windows 10. I do have security cameras by Q-See and their app will not run on a phone. I have sent request to them twice asking for an app for a Windows phone and even told them that many of their customers may be changing as Microsoft has made a lot of changes that will cause many people to change to a Windows phone. We have to do all we can to get them to see that we are changing to the Windows OS and they could lose customers to someone that will support the Windows phone OS. I have been able to use the web instead of apps then pinning them to the start screen in cases where an app was not available.

Read: You Need Mobile Security for Android, But Not Because of Malware
There are a lot of reasons you need mobile security for your Android, and all of them are bigger than malware, for the moment.

The deep, dark fear of security-minded people was that smartphones would surpass PCs as the prime target for malware. The good news is this hasn't happened?yet. Apple's strict control over its store has kept out nearly all the overtly malicious apps, and the Google Play store has seen remarkably little malware despite the freedoms it allows.

Malware is a threat for mobile users, but if you stick to Google Play it's highly unlikely you'll encounter it. There are, however, other, more pressing concerns. Scammers and aggressive ad networks want access to your personal information, and mobile device theft is a burgeoning problem. Thankfully, Android security suites are already guarding against these threats, and are ready to defend you, should the mobile malware threat ever really take off.

Mobile Malware Protection [...]

Pocket-sized Data Goldmines [...]

Ad Networks and Permissions [...]

Loss and Theft [...]

Choose Your Shield [...]

Whatever you chose for your device, make sure it works for you. Learn how to use it, and be sure to test-drive the anti-theft features so you know how they work before you ever need to use them for real. Mobile security is only as good as the person using the phone, so choose wisely, and make it part of your life.Click to ex... Read more

Answer:You need Mobile Security for Android

I never found any reason to have any shield other than AntiTheft. Others are just useless.

I have several different android devices and until recently had no wi fi problems. My router is in the loft so i have a devolo powerline adaptor that has worked fine for several years. My broadband provider is talktalk - again i have been with them for years with no problems. Recentky i made the mistake of taking up talktalk free offer of a you view tv box. I installed this using my develo powerline adaptor. Ever since i did this my wifi network has had problems. My android devices find the network but do not acquire the ip address. If i turn my main router of and back on again all my android devices work for about half a day and then the problem reoccurs. My laptop which is a windows based machine is not affected. I have unplugged the you view box and sent it back to talktalk so everything should be back to what is was before. Both talktalk and develo say it is the others fault and nothing to do with them. Any advice would be welcome.

Sorry if I sound like a complete novice (because I am one) but the problem basically presents itself.
I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows Vista (don't ask me why) which is connected to the internet via an ethernet port (because I live in a college dorm).
So I tried to convert this into a wifi for my Samsung phone and tablet androids by making it into an adhoc connection, but they didnt register it. After much Google-ing I realised that androids don't support ad-hoc connections.
I even tried installing Connectify. But once again it created an ad-hoc connection as my laptop is Vista, which is incompatible.

I also read all this stuff about rooting your phone etc. which basically scared the hell out of me because I don't want to damage my devices and I'm afraid I might just, if I mess it up. They work absolutely fine otherwise.

So basically my question is, is there ANY way (an app, a software; no configuration required please) in which I can connect an android device to an Ethernet internet connection via Vista?

Thanks in advance. Especially to those who can explain in easy language.

I don't use antivirus app all the time. I install them once in a while, scan if there's some problem and after the scan is done, I delete them. So far I have never been infected with malware in my rooted device but these security apps don't have root access so I don't know how effective they actually are.

My daughter has an R7, and she is having a weird problem with the USB ports on it.No android device can stay connected. As soon as you plug it, it makes the connect sound then the disconnect sound and keeps cycling between connecting and disconnecting. It is not related to the device as I have tried two different phones and one tablet all with different cables, all work fine on other computers. And I tried on the three available USB ports of the laptop, all behave the same. Searching online I found a lot of people with similar issues mostly unresolved. I did disable the USB suspend option in the power options without any results, as well as uninstall all USB hub so they would be reinstalled at boot time, and installed all optional windows updates. She is also experiencing another issue on her USB ports, we have a Samsung slim external DVD player that uses a Y USB cable for data and power that also works fine on any other machine. On her R7, when playing a Video, the video keeps making blocks at regular intervals like something is preventing the full data stream. Wondering if this is related. Apart from that, USB mouse, USB keys or external USB drives appear to work fine. Anyone with a similar issue and a definitive fix?

Thanks, but I seem to have found a solution to both issues. 1) Regarding the android devices that kept disconnecting and reconnecting, after reading the thread belowhttps://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2900614 I checked what registry keys were present on my wife's surface pro3 forHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\VID_XXXX&PID_XXXX\YYYY\Device Parameters and found that there was three DWORD values in there that were not present on the R7SelectiveSuspendEnabledEnhancedPowerManagementEnabledDeviceSelectiveSuspended So I added these 3 DWORD and set them all to zero (disabled), and the issue is gone. You may not need the three of them, but I have not tested them one at a time yet. 2) For the External DVD blocky playback, it turned out to be quite trivial. Someone had enabled hardware acceleration in the VLC player settings. I reset all the VLC settings, and it worked fine from there. Hope this can help others
