  • Windows on ARMWhile this project is not totally finished (e.g. No Battery status/charging unknown, no cellular, no audio), I decided to post this thread as many people asked me about the tutorial. This is just a brief tutorial, you need to have plenty of time on this to make this happen. Be careful as some steps are very dangerous.

  • Windows on ARMA month ago, I wrote about why I'm sticking with the Surface RT over the Surface Pro (see here for previous article). Today I'm going to reiterate that stance and show you why Windows RT is an even more powerful operating system than we give it credit for, and is a solid investment for anyone. After all, at its core, Windows RT is still Windows. It operates and functions exactly like Windows 8 does. Welcome to Part 1 of our hacking journals and tutorial.

  • Windows on ARMStarting out as a rookie among veterans, in a matter of months Windows RT has transformed into an exciting and intriguing alternative to established tablet operating systems. The trigger for the frankly unexpected makeover is the jailbreak which allows enthusiasts to run unsigned apps on their Windows RT-based devices -- there's even an automated toolwhich makes modding a breeze. If you think that is not good enough and you still need or want your old apps, a developer has released a tool that allows legacy programs to run on Windows RT.

  • Windows on ARMMicrosoft's Surface RT is a thing of beauty, and that comes from personal experience. The tablet is solidly built, with amazing externals and powerful hardware inside.

  • Windows on ARMThis is XDA Developers, and we like our devices a certain way. We like them unlocked, rooted, and free to do with as we please. However, very few devices are ever released in this condition. Thus, our large community of dedicated developers figure out a way to do it. After all, it's happened again and again and again.

  • Windows on ARMThe jailbreak community is once again lending a hand to users who wish to run old Macintosh software on their Windows RT tablet, be it Microsoft Surface or any other device equipped with this special version of the Windows 8 OS.
