As in I own the Alcatel One Touch Fierce XL windows version, and I'd like very much for this app to support this phone.

Install Windows Device Recovery Tools and then try to download your phone's ROM and then provide us the link to download it . maybe it can be helpful .
Or if you are a expert users, try to send us your phone's XAP and APPX applications to make them a review

Here is WhatsApp Folder.
C:\Data\SharedData\OEM\Public\WhatsApp

You can browse that folder using FS Access or "File Manager" app on phone.
You have to create shortcut file on PC for that path and open shortcut file through the File Manager App.
Hi djamol,
I'm searching for the WhatsApp backup folder in a Lumia 1020 too but... I can't find the folder SharedData inside Data: maybe the path is changed (I'm on W10M TH2 10586.494)? I just want to extract the WA backup, make an Hard Reset and put the backup back to its place: I think it is the only way for a Lumia without SD to perform an hard reset without losing the WA chats, am I right?

Thank to you for all your efforts, and to anyone that will contribute!

you cant access the folder on the phone directly anymore. they patched the bug with the .107 which allowed accessing the folder with a shortcut

you need to interop unlock your device + enable full fs access. plug it into your pc and the folderes are visible and reachable (you could use sftp connection too, but that needs more steps to do). and make sure only to copy the latest folder from the backup folder, it might get new timestamps and make whatsapp tick an old one (though they changed the foldernames of the backups a while ago -> now they are named by the date and not some random numbers -> might lead to whatsapp always picking the newest one but i havent tested it)

Problem is that even with full fs access, there is no "SharedData" folder under C:\Data ... This is using USB connection to phone. Is it that the folder is hidden, or is it that it's changed location?

reboot the phone after settings fs access, if you dont reboot it first looks like its fully unlocked but it isnt. and be aware: some modells take now a few minutes to get recognized by windows (it gets recognized as its hardware device model bla but without mtp access available, but this behavior can differ from modell to modell; my 920 even needs windows to be rebootet completely before the connection works again)

Thanks for you help: as GeoffreyK said the SharedData folder wasn't visible. After many reboots (both the PC and the Lumia) the folder appeared. I have used vcREG as well as WPTweaker to get FS access: tofuschnitte was right, "it looks like its fully unlocked but it isnt".

Now I have the WA folder with the latest backup (2016-07-19-0000) on my PC. They are the unencrypted mySQL version (WA only encrypt backup databases saved on SD card). The question is: if I hard reset the Lumia 1020 and then put the backup back to its place, will WA recognize it during the install process? [email protected] in post #192 states that if you move a 820 SD backup to the "C:\Data\SharedData\OEM\Public\WhatsApp" folder in a Lumia 1020, WA won't recognize it: maybe it's because the 820 backup is encrypted?

works fine with copying it back to that location after resetting the phone (doing that on my 920 since a long time). and you are right: backup files on the sd look different, might be due to encryption yes (they dont need to encrypt the internal storage folder cause its not as easy accessable like the sd card). and dont forget to inlcude the regtoken,phoneid and reglog.txt files too, will save you from a new verify sms (and if you play around within 24 hrs you get blocked for 12-24hrs after 2-3 activation sms). when you start whatsapp - enter your phone number like always, after that it will detect the backup and ask you if you want to restore it

Thank you, tofuschnitte, I can confirm what you say and j27h's observations. I used interop tools to set full fs access and yes, the problem was lack of a reboot. To avoid the long wait for MTP service to respond, I used interop tools to set the root for the MTP service to C:\\Data\SharedData\OEM\Public and the service starts up much more quickly. With this I was able to copy the backup folder from my old phone (no SD card), uninstall WhatsApp from the new phone, place the copied backup on the new phone in the same location, deleting existing backup, and reinstall WhatsApp on the new phone. It found the backup and restored all my chats and contacts. It didn't find the images inside chats, but these had made their way to OneDrive in any case. I didn't need to reset the phone, but my case is somewhat different.

After searching, downloading, deploying again searching, downloading, deploying & again & again... for 2 days I got to interlop and deploy "CustomWPSystem_0500.xap".
To avoid this pain in ***, detailed steps for newbies like me.


Software's needed :
1.Windows Phone 8.0 SDK Lite(Custom)(Link:http://www48.zippyshare.com/v/61043840/file.html) / Windows Phone 8.0 SDK Full.
2. Visual studio (I used Visual studio 2012)may be needed.?
STEPS

1. Turn "ON" Developer Unlock Mode on Phone.(Windows 10 Mobile) (Go to Settings> Update & Security> For Developers>Developer Mode)
2. Download "Root Tool.zip". (Link:http://forum.xda-developers.com/win.../jailbreak-interop-unlock-windows-10-t3178140) Rename extension "zip" to "xap".
3. Open "XapDeploy.exe" on PC.(C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v8.0\Tools\XAP Deployment)
4. Deploy Root Tool.xap.
5. From "Root tool Menu" select corresponding Registry editor. Select "templates" from "..." and select & apply interop.
6. Restart.
7. Download "customPFD_0005.zip". (Link:http://forum.xda-developers.com/windows-phone-8/development/xap-custompfd-registry-editor-tweaks-t2981057) Rename extension "zip" to "xap".
8. Open "XapDeploy.exe" on PC.(C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v8.0\Tools\XAP Deployment)
9. Deploy "customPFD_0005.xap".
10. Do your tweaks &/ registry edits.

NB: I did this because I needed Software Navigation Key asap.(CustomPFD Reg>General tweaks>Enable Nav)
Hey bro! I'm also trying for NAVIGATION BAR tweak. And I'm successfully enabled it from customPFD "general tweaks" option. Navigation bar appears but ALL MY APPS STARTED CRASHING NOT EVEN OPEN. If u know the issue then plz tell me how to solve that.

Use Interop Tools to edit registry.

Can you tell me where can i find Interop tools? Also, I cant install any XAPs..dont know why...help?

EDIT:

Ok I got Interop Tools and it has some weird Reg Editor ..

Now again, the question is, if I have to enable my navigation bar on my Lumia 1520, how do I do that?

There are like a bunch of questions I have here...

First of all, in Interop Tools, don't edit the registry with the "Registry Editor"; use the "Registry Browser" instead. However, to enable software navigation, you don't need to edit the registry, just go to Tweaks (in Interop Tools beta) and under "Shell" you'll see "Software navigation bar", which you can turn on or off. This edits the registry for you.

I'm sorry I dont see that option anywhere in Tweaks...

Can you show step by step for suggestion about more quick status options on lockscreen and glance screen to the Feedback hub.:confused:

Try searching for feedback in Feedback hub. The title is "More quick status apps", it is posted under category:

Personalization and Ease of Access -> Lock screen

I don't know why the link doesn't work, it is copied directly from the Feedback hub app with built-in option Copy link. Another thing that Microsoft needs to repair :D.

    Hello Folks,
    Yeah this is the First thread, First Post about the Windows 10 Mobile Hacking.


    Now the First Interop Unlock hack for W10M is now available. It's currently limited to LUMIA/SAMSUNG phones, although we're trying to extend it to other OEM Device, of course. (It requires specific Driver/Services to "RUN" into "SYSTEM" Privileges. Hence, other OEM Device is lack of these. I.e HTC/Micromax etc. etc.)

    *** UPDATE : Microsoft is trying to break our hack through blocking "NdtkSvc" on Lumia. So the hack currently doesn't work directly on Lumia 950/550 or later. Even if you updated extras+info on any lumia you will loss Service Access. So Stay Away from Extras+Info***

    A brief summary, for those unfamiliar with interop-lock:
    Windows Phone allows a number of high-privilege app capabilities, which can be used to make changes to the OS which are normally not possible for a third-party Applications.
    The limitation on whether we can use these capabilities or not is based on what "level" of developer unlock the phone has.
    ON WP7/8/8.1
    Standard "ISV" (Independent Software Vendor) Dev Unlock (max 10 apps or less) is what pretty much everybody gets.
    OEMs, however, get a special OEM Developer Unlock (300 apps or more) which gives them the ability to use much higher-privilege app capabilities than the standard ISV unlock permits. The name comes from ID_CAP_INTEROPSERVICES, the capability which was most important in WP7/WP8/8.1.
    However, there are a great many interesting capabilities. Note that Interop-unlock by itself does not enable all of these. However, at least on Lumia/Samsung phones, it is now possible to enable *all* the capabilities.
    As per my Research Microsoft has give up some FREEDOM to the 3rd Party Developers. Now the "ISV" Developers can sideload apps with the All "SECOND PARTY CAPABILITIES". However, having a Some hive privilege "SYSTEM" Resource that we can expand it to Enable All Capabilities.

    The instructions are as follows:

    1. Turn "ON" Developer Unlock Mode. (Go to Settings> Update & Security> For Developers)
    2. Download "Root Tool.xap" from attachments and deploy It.

    Recommended:
    Go to "JailBreak Tool"
    Select your choice, That's It !

    Custom:
    Go to Device Specific Registry Editor Tool.
    Select "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
    Write default values.

    (For Lumia)
    Code:
    "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DeviceReg\Install"
    "MaxUnsignedApp"=DWORD:7FFFFFFF

    (For Samsung)
    Code:
    "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DeviceReg\Install"
    "MaxUnsignedApp"=DWORD:2147483647

    Preventing Unlock:
    Code:
    "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DeviceReg"
    "PortalUrlInt"="https://127.0.0.1"
    "PortalUrlProd"="https://127.0.0.1"

    Unlocking NEW Capability Engine:

    Write these values:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SecurityManager\AuthorizationRules\Capability\capabilityRule_DevUnlock]
    "CapabilityClass"="capabilityClass_DevUnlock_Internal"
    "PrincipalClass"="principalClass_DevUnlock_Internal"


    ENJOY :)

    Hence, this is not a Complete "Root Access" but we are working on it to gain Full SYSTEM Access.
    Still, If you got any Issue's after this tutorial then ask your "Questions" In Q/A Thread.

    SPECIAL Thanks to @vcfan (Without the RPC Code from "vcFAN" was Impossible to Interop Unlock or Capability Unlock)
    Thanks to @ngame and @GoodDayToDie
    Thanks Everybody for your Big Support.

    Questions and Answers

    Will this work on other OEM Device / Are you working on this for other OEM Device / What about HTC, or some other OEM?
    The current hack relies on a Lumia/Samsung-specific component. Adding support for other phones will require new hacks. We are looking into it.

    Can I re-lock my phone if I want to?
    Yes, easily. The simplest method is to turn off the "Developer mode" in Settings> Update & Security> For Developers. This doesn't remove any changes that were made using the interop-unlock, though (for example, it won't undo the Capability-Unlock hack, not will it set back the Full FS Access hack). Apps that require interop-unlock will still be installed, but may no longer run. To manually remove interop-unlock, you can reset all the registry values that were changed by the interop-unlock hack to their original values, and remove all the apps. There still may be a great many other changes that also need reverting, though, if you want to get back to stock settings.

    Can I get my phone completely back to stock settings without knowing every little thing I changed?
    Yes, a hard (factory) reset will undo all changes made by interop-unlock, or any apps (including ones that require interop-unlock), and will remove all apps. If you need to send your phone in for warranty servicing and are worried that they won't take it because you interop-unlocked it, this approach will fix that (they would probably tell you to hard-reset anyhow, if it's conceivably a software problem).

    Will the interop-unlock survive a hard reset?
    Not using this method! Read the question above. This unlock is purely in software, not firmware; it is reset along with everything else.

    Hi djamol,

    Thanx for this. So after doing this, are we able to say put HOSTS to block ads? I have not had the time to try this, gonna do this after work

    It's a full interop/cap unlock based on VCREG 1.1 project
    you can navigate Lumia registry editor -> templates -> check the check boxes -> apply
    then use Custom PFD to set these values :
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SecurityMana ger\AuthorizationRules\Capability\capabilityRule_D evUnlock]
    "CapabilityClass"="capabilityClass_DevUnlock_Inter nal"
    "PrincipalClass"="principalClass_DevUnlock_Interna l"
    if you see any SPACE in values above they are seems xda bug . no spaces in above strings
    4
    It doesn't work ( :c ) because it has INTEROPSERVICES....
    I have tried to replace WMAppManifest with one from RootTool.xap, deployed successfully but when I open it, it crash.

    Sorry I updated xap very fast because of a real bad bug in my new updated codes I forget about capabilities
    here it is the new xap with same RootTools capabilities
    try it and let know the result .
