Discontinued; but the hosts files below are always updated
This is a recompilation of registry hacks for Interop-unlocked Windows Phone devices.
I have tested this on my freshly hard-resetted Lumia 730; Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 (Also tried on Win10 v14393.189 as of 2 weeks ago).

I have used CustomPFD to explore the whole WP Registry, I will update this thread if I find something new and unusual.

- Created registry values are tested while there are some that says 'create a value for this key', I did not include it without initial and further testing
- Most WPTweaker tweaks are not here though, I still haven't consulted them for replicating their list of tweaks. All of the tweaks below are the ones I always use/alter on my device.
- Several tweaks might still apply on W10M but I haven't tested it all yet.
- Useful things are in here, I will dig down further to add more to this thread

Code:
HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services
(Start: 4 (Disable), 3 (Manual), 2 (Automatic), 1 (System), 0 (Boot))
- DataCollection
- DiagnosticSvc
- DiagTrack
- dmwappushsvc
- DnsCache → You might want to disable this service if and only if you are using a large hosts file
- FeedbackSvc
- telrepsvc → Telemetry, haven't confirmed yet but somehow breaks clearing of Telemetry files in Storage
- telwatsvc → Telemetry

Code:
HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control
- WaitToKillServiceTimeout

Code:
HKLM\SYSTEM\Maps\Storage
- UseSmallerCache

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\OEM\VolumeLimit
- EnableVolumeLimit
- VolumeLimit

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\OEM\Nokia\Onboarding
(I do not know what this does)
- EnableNokiaCare

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\CommandChannel\Internal
(Testing; Disables Push Notifications?)
- IsWNSEnabled

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DataCollection\Default\WifiAutoConnectConfig
(Disables Wi-Fi Sense)
- AutoConnectEnabled

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DeviceEncryption
(Testing; Bitlocker?)

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\GestureNavigation
(Testing; IE Swipe Gesture)
- FlickThreshold

Code:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\TabStore
(Testing; Max Tabs? I think this one is the tabs to be kept in memory, or else.. It will be unloaded)
- NumberToKeep

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Messaging\GlobalSettings
- ShowSendingStatus → Useful if you want to see the "Sending..." status in your outgoing sms

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\PolicyManager\current
(Works like Group Policy Editor? Feedback in Settings now says Disabled by policy/administrator or something like that)
- ...\System\AllowTelemetry, it is set to 2. Setting this to 0 disables Telemetry and Feedback.

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SEMgr\UI
(NFC Settings)

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\CustomHoldDelays
(Contains Hold Delays for touch taps, higher=longer tap to activate)

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\NavigationBar
- IsBurnInProtectionEnabled → This is the one that makes your software navigation bar grayish
- IsDoubleTapOffEnabled → This option is hidden in the Navigation Bar settings for Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 users, double tapping the navbar will lock/turn-off the screen; good for hardware key prolongation

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shell\Start
(Tile Flipping Delay)
- NotificationCycleTimer

Code:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows
(Windows Customer Experience Improvement program)
- CEIPEnable
