Hello all,

I just wanna share a tutorial on how to restore glance screen on Windows 10 Redstone for older devices. I made this tutorial because there are so many people asking how to restore glance functionality after they update their device to Redstone. There are some guides on it but they are really hard to find. There is even an option to enable old glance screen on Gustav's Interop Tools but lot of people don't know how to use it

This tutorial is based on what I always did to restore the glance screen on my Lumia 920. Make sure that your device had glance screen feature when it was on Windows Phone. Otherwise, this trick wouldn't work. Follow this tutorial on your own risk. I'm not responsible for any damage caused to your device.

Part 1: Install Interop Tools & Glance Screen APPX
  1. On your PC, Download the latest version of Interop Tools from https://forum.xda-developers.com/win...istry-t3445271 and the attached glancescreen_appx.zip. Put all the APPXs (including dependencies) on your phone storage (e.g. Download folder)
  2. On your phone. go to Settings > Update & security > For developers
  3. Turn on Developer mode, Device Discovery and Device Portal
  4. Open Microsoft Edge, and go to http://127.0.0.1/ to open Device Portal (it is possible to do this using your PC via WiFi but it'll be slower since the APPXs need to be transfered via WiFi)
  5. If there is a certificate error, ignore it and click Continue to this webpage
  6. You might be asked to authenticate. Go to the previous developer settings and click Pair button
  7. On the Device Portal, Click Apps on the left sidebar
  8. Install all Interop Tools dependencies ONE BY ONE. After that, install the main Interop Tools APPX
  9. Install glancescreen.appx
  10. Turn off Device Discovery and Device Portal on the developer settings

Part 2: Restore Missing Glance Files & Registry
  1. Open Interop Tools > This Device. Open sidebar, choose Interop Unlock
  2. Check Restore NDTKSvc and restart your device (on some occasions, the other option can't be turned on until you restart your device)
  3. Open Interop Tools > This Device > Interop Unlock. Check Full Filesystem Access and restart your device once more (some folders can't be seen until you restart the device)
  4. Connect your device to your PC via USB
  5. On your PC, download the attached missing_glance_files.zip and put them on [Your Phone]\Data\SharedData\OEM\Public\ using Windows Explorer
  6. Open Interop Tools and turn off Full Filesystem Access
  7. Open sidebar, choose Tweaks
  8. Scroll down and turn on Enable Old Glance Screen (RS1)

Part 3: Fix Glance Font (Non-WXGA devices only)
  1. Open Settings > System > About. Click More info button and check your device Screen resolution
  2. If it's 768x1280 (WXGA), jump to part 4. Otherwise, open Interop Tools > This Device. Open sidebar, choose Registry Browser
  3. Navigate to HKLM\Software\OEM\Nokia\lpm\FontFile
  4. If your device screen resolution is 480x800 (WVGA), replace lpmFont_WXGA.bin with lpmFont_WVGA.bin. For other resolutions, you might wanna check out the other fonts inside lpmFonts_4.1.12.4 folder in the attached missing_glance_files.zip

Part 4: Update Glance Screen
  1. Open Store. Open sidebar, choose Downloads and updates
  2. Click Check for updates and update Glance Screen
  3. Restart your device

Miscellaneous
I hope this tutorial helps. Goodluck!

How to Increase Glance Font to Fit Device Screen Like on Windows Phone

The glance font on Windows Phone is bigger than on Windows 10 Mobile so that the text fits the device screen. I actually prefer the smaller font size because that's how the glance screen displayed on the new devices and it looks more elegant. But if you still want to increase the font size, here's the steps...
  1. Open Interop Tools > This Device. Open sidebar, choose Registry Browser
  2. Navigate to HKLM\Software\OEM\Nokia\lpm\FontFile
  3. Replace \Data\SharedData\OEM\Public\lpmFonts_4.1.12.4\ with \Windows\system32\
  4. Write the change

To restore the default W10M glance font, change the value to \Data\SharedData\OEM\Public\lpmFonts_4.1.12.4\lpmF ont_wxga.bin

Try this value: \Data\SharedData\OEM\Public\lpmFonts_4.1.12.4\lpmF ont_720p_hi.bin
You can try lpmFont_720p.bin or lpmFont_wvga.bin if it's not small enough. lpmFont_720p_hi.bin > lpmFont_720p.bin > lpmFont_wvga.bin

If glance screen was available on the device while it's on Windows Phone, then it would work. Otherwise, nope, I don't think so
