People! PLEASE READ MY OP! Dual boot is alpha!! That means no support, if you can't figure out how to solve your own problems, post DETAILED INFORMATION with a screenshot as well as your OS AND the steps needed to reproduce your issue! If you know how to read bat files that will help you greatly! Can the 1 guy having problems post a screenshot? (Your video is super low quality and out of focus) Also once I am done all the stuff for dualboot.bat it will be version 1.0! Then it will be noob friendly. For now it's not yet noob friendly. Thank you for the support.



Tldr: Thanks

Open the bat in notepad change ECHO off to ECHO on. Run the batch file. Post a screenshot of the black window with nothing covering it up.

I ran dualboot 0.3 on my surface 2 with windows rt8.1. It said task path created and restarted. After that what should i do?
@ajain3982:
I am using Nokia 2520 RT 8.1 and followed the steps you had mentioned. The install went successfully and rebooted. But I didn't see anything to show for using a different bootloader. Did you get any response from OP? Please share your experience.

    Windows RT Expander: An expansion of your Windows RT device!
    *** Disclaimer ***
    These tools were developed by many different people. If I have used your code and you want to change/remove it just PM me. DO NOT COPY AND REPOST THESE TOOLS WITHOUT PMing ME FIRST FOR PERMISSION! Not all the code is mine so I may not be able to give permission.
    Behave responsibly and avoid thermonuclear war!

    Introduction and FAQ's

    What is this project?

    This project will be a collection of tools I as well as others have made to expand the capabilities of Windows RT.

    Will it be noob friendly?

    It will be as noob friendly as possible. However not right now. See below.

    What stage of development are you in?

    Right now I am in alpha stage of development. This means I have some code I have some notes (think notepad, word) and I have some idea's. While in alpha I will mainly be describing how the tools work for me.

    What will the final product be like?


    Will the tools be open source?

    Many, many of the files will be in batch which is naturally open source.

    Will this work on other versions of Windows?

    Note that most of these tools also run on Windows 8, Windows 7, and both versions of RT that is 8.0, 8.1.

    How can I help?


    If you want to help PM me with:
    1. How you think you can help.
    2. What your experience with technology is. (I'm thinking of certification here!)

    Me talking about my experience with RT

    I bought a Surface RT with a touch keyboard for $250 on black Friday in 2012 or 2013 I don't remember. I was blown away at how well the device worked but I wanted to expand the capabilities of it. So after a lot of poking around on this site and spending a lot of time I got things to work better. For example:
    1. I wanted to play old Humongous Entertainment games (ScummVM)
    2. I wanted to host a wireless network using the Surface
    3. I wanted to dual boot RT 8.0 and 8.1
    4. I wanted an easy way to enable and disable ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)
    5. I wanted a button that I could use with touch to press esc
    Thanks to Netham45 making and clrokr finding an exploit on Windows RT 8.0 we could run recompiled desktop apps (Number 1) so I packed ScummVM and SDL and zlib1 into a zip. Then to use touch in ScummVM while having ScummVM fill the screen you need to do the following:
    1. Move the task bar to the left or right of the screen
    2. Control panel->Display->Custom Sizing options->150%
    I wrote a batch file for Number 2. I have a word document explaining what I did for dual boot. I will make a batch file later. For Number 4 I was looking for a 1 click method to enable and disable ICS the Batch file does that. For the last one I used visual basic.
    Where is the stuff?

    • Direct link to My Custom Jailbreak Click me
    • Direct link to ScummVm and all the required libraries Click me
    • Direct link to 7-zip Click me
    • Direct link to Audacity Click me
    • Direct link to Wireless Hosted Network Click me
    • Direct link to ICS Click me
    • Direct link to Esc key presser Click me
    • Direct link to dualboot OneDrive folder Click me
    • Link to Netham45's Jailbreak Click me
    • Link to GoodDayToDie's List of Desktop Apps Recompiled for Windows RT Click me

    What will the final product be like?

    Hopefully I have enough support to get to beta then to final. It should:
    1. Be a one click installer that can run on RT 8.0 or RT 8.1
    2. Auto detect your OS (RT8.0 or 8.1)
    3. Ask you full or custom.
    4. If full it will install as much as it can given your OS
      • If on RT 8.1 it will install:
        • Wireless Hosted Network
        • ICS
        • Keypresser
        • Dualboot of 8.0 (Just asking you to input the path to install .wim)
      • If on RT 8.0 it will install:
        • Jailbreak
        • 7-zip
        • ICS
        • Wireless Hosted Network
        • Keypresser
    5. If custom it will ask what you want to install from a list of tools that can be installed based on your OS

    Myriachan has posted on twitter that she allow XDA Developers who knows the JB for 8.1 to release it 1 week after Windows 10 release date. That could be integrate it into the tool??

    Yes. When the secure boot disabler is released, I will integrate it into the tools package.
