(e.g. screen resolutions is missing in infoscreen and win WP8 marketplace is called store). I think ansar has done some registry editings, maybe bit more, and now WP8 marketplace is available in WP7.8.

Well not many updates since long.. but Ansar as far as my understanding / Knowledge goes .. The compatibility warning should still not prevent you from being able to install apps .. If you please you can enlighten/ tell us more .. what exactly is happening with the issue ..

Just look at this if you don't know. It's possible :

WP8 can't run on HTC HD2 and it's clones (HTC Mozart, HTC Trophy) = LIE

To be fair, its a bit academic if its a lie or not, not having it in the public essentially means it can't happen, or won't happen to be more exact. There are a bunch of things that can be done, but haven't been done, win mob 5 on the alpine being one, wm running as an app within wp being another, both of these have been shown to be working , both never were released. Does that mean DFT an co are full of BS lying to us all? No, in my opinion it does not, in my opinion it shows us that they are unwilling to release buggy incomplete code. The only thing they are guilty of is showing proof of concept work as working code without explaining that its going to need a lot more work to actually get finished

Re: WP8 ROM analysis [UEFI and RUU nbh] by ansar
I have a couple of questions that I can't find anywhere else..

Is it possible (even the slightest) to port drivers for a phone to WP8?

Or would it require a bootloader unlock/wipe of a phones system and internal emmc storage?

If that's the case I'm f*cked considering I'm using a motorola device.. lol.

Sorry guys, just had to ask. I don't think its been asked before or not.

To my knowledge there is no means to tinker with the innards of any WP8 device AND have it persist and be usable. Its Tighter than a ducks bottom
