So these days i was googling for a way to really install windows 8 on android tablets. I came over a video about a software called "changemysoftware". It seems it would make your devicea dual boot with windows 8 and android. What do you think? Is this fake?

But theres a video of someone installing it on their Android, it dual boots windows 8 and android, but windows 8 was laggy due to his dual core tab. There were 200+ likes and 20+ dislikes so, seems legit, he also uploaded the program onto ZippyShare so that you didn't have to do the survey, but when I tried it tells me the software is outdated and needs to be updated, so I cant do it unless I update it completing the survey...

Give me half an hour and I'll show you how to install any OS on any device. All that was is a video of something on someone's PC screen.

Okay, I know this I am late for the talk but I think this is best for future questions. Just to be clear for other people who is confused with this scam.

The program is .NET framework based so I decompiled it with .NET Reflector. I got the source and trust me, there is no ADB related code. It is picture and text popping out. Also if you try to rename one of its .DLL file, it is the text "changemysoftware" spamming around to make hundreds kilobytes file. You might think I'm lying so you better see the source itself, download the attachment.

Note: Reflector failed to decompile it into Visual basic or C# so .IL file is only working. Try to find "ButtonX_Click" event in the Form1.il. Pictures and assets are in the .resources file.
