Great to hear that there is another rom/OS that has at least partially works for our tablets! Seems like a perfect setup for the Yoga Book. I hope that the Phoenix developers will be able to sort some of those bugs!

Bugs? It works flawlessly on normal devices with standard x86 hardware. Except on the YogaBook due the lack of drivers and customized Kernel. I doubt the PhoenixOS Team cares about the YB with it's very specific hardware like the Halo Keyboard, Digitizer etc unique in the Android Segment... Lenovo didn't sell enough devices to get a significant market share...

If Lenovo doesn't provide it how will someone be able to implement them? And no, Lenovo will not release customization's, why else are they selling two different models?

Actually Lenovo is such a stupid Company:silly:, they just want money without taking care of the customers, but we hope that PhoenixOS will fix this Problems :fingers-crossed:

Nobody forces you to buy their products.

they just want money without taking care of the customers
Name one company which doesn't want to make money. You apparently never enjoyed the Support of companies like HP, DELL or ACER - Nightmare reinvented

Customers got the choice between the Android or Windows model. It's like Ferrari owners, they would like to drive a Lamborghini from time to time.

Yes I know the upcoming argument: but there are Dual-Boot devices!
Frankly I never understood it. Sharing a 64GB SSD with two OS'es and rebooting the device all day long just to get into the different apps... Maybe I just have another perception of productivity.

but we hope that PhoenixOS will fix this Problems :fingers-crossed:
Phoenix won't. Take that for granted. YB has no significant market share. No other company uses Lenovo specific components (most obvious HALO, Anypen etc)...

I even risk to predict Phoenix will disappear like RemixOS. There is no market - no market no income.
Try Nox or KoPlayer if you really have an App which isn't available for Windows.

My friend, if you took a look about BIOS for yoga book you will see that its very basic From Insyde, they didnt chosen American Megatrends BIO, they completely locked the BIOS

and yes, Lenovo is very stupid company, before they releasing yogabook they say that they will put dualboot option on some devices,

I have tried to install Phoenix OS on my Yoga Book Windows, and it did not work out:
1. When trying to boot in Phoenix OS, screen goes black with some white dots moving at left edge, I have left it for about 10 minutes and when came back screen was fully black and non responsive. Restarted couple times - same. Did not have patience to wait longer.
2. Halo keyboard does not work even for selecting what OS to boot. Windows boots by default after short time, and from there you can restart with target boot to Phoenix OS. This probably can be solved with USB keyboard, but not convenient.
Interestedly, keyboard does not work even in BIOS, only screen touch (I guess it acts as mouse clicks).

Install/uninstall of Phoenix OS were pretty easy. When booting into Windows after manipulations in BIOS with secure boot, it needs to reactivate Bitlocker, but that was also straightforward.
