Trust me winRT is no better, maybe even worse. It has less apps than Windows Phone and can't run .exe files or apps for full Windows 8. I have a surface RT but Word and Internet explorer are basically its only functions

Dont care about "apps", there are already tools that allow to run "real" x86 applicatins on Windows RT ARM based devices, so it may be useful for me for various reason..

Well ok but still, this is a 5" phone... Not really useful for full Windows.
And the "tool" is called jailbreak and doesn't work on 8.1 only 8.0. And even when it does work, only select ported apps work, and most of those are broken. So unless you want to run GIMP or a half-working rainmeter on your phone, RT is rather useless... Ubuntu and winXP are much more interesting than RT imo, and those have been available for years already (I ran em on my evo 3D!)

Each to their own though... Options are never bad to have.

So has anyone taken the step to try to flash this Chinese-website-sourced ROM?

Best not to. Very high chance it could brick the phone. As the_scotsman said if would need to be recompiled and looked at first. We don't know what the boot leader is like and how it changes the partitions on the phone.

A few people have in the Windows section and it just failed and that's all.

I'm hoping this comes to fruition. I want to play with WP on the HTC and i'm happy to flash a rom to try.

Others have tried in the RUU thread with no luck. Looks like there's things missing.

I've asked them to continue posting in here where it makes more sense.

If you look at how different the partitions are with GPE because even at first with that a conversion would leave you stuck. If possible cool if not I'm still content with our options. #2cents 😎
