I would be down to put up a substantial amount to make dual boot happen (like pay for a donor device)

Updated my M8 Firmware/Radio just last nite. due to Viper Venom 3.0.1 needs and was actually paying for the "sunshine" help - which is rather unusual for me (FireWater Weaksauce etc. didn't work).

I am actually glad nobody here came up yet with a weekend occupying win81 on m8 step by step instruction or Dual Boot

---------------
BTW - Have a M7 32 GB Rooted S-OFF Viper Venom but cracked glass. Can ship in Europe or Switzerland. Works charming and has enough power for other "duties"

I think this is how it works, if you think about it, Windows 8.1 is running a dumbed down components of RT that came on the Surfaces. If we can break the UEFI secure boot bootloader then we can develop a UEFI bootloader with the correct radios. Then we would have to install Windows OS Bootloader, so what you want to do is install two windows RT operating systems on to the device, once you do that then you can edit entries. Then someone can develop a emulator to run Android on the second installed windows RT. Rename the entry and boom there you go you have a touch bootloader with the Entry of Windows and Android. The only problem is you have to take out all the bloatware out of the second installed operating system. Android isn't technically running on the hard ware its virtually running. If not you are going to need to figure out how to make a EFI android to settle on to the device. So the bounty is going to be more than what the HTC HD2 was. Remember you are dealing with UEFI secure boots and you have to find away to assign the RT signatures to the bootloader to make it come up. Its not a simple flash and play anymore. But with the right minds and the persistence and determination you can over come up. If someone was able to get RT on a bios based HTC HD2 then it is achievable you just to reverse engineer and forget how the older phones work. Think outside the box.
