There’s a new hack in town that allows users to install Windows 10 Preview on all Lumia models, despite the fact that Microsoft only released the preview build on handful of devices.
Pursue this link for more information about this modification that was released a couple of days back.
Obviously, it was only a matter of time before some daredevils tried this hack on their smartphones, even if it comes with a warning that it may brick these devices — and we now have a video of what is currently the most affordable Windows Phone device on the market running the preview.
Yes, the Lumia 520.
Watch the fairly lengthy video below:
Surprisingly, Windows 10 for Phones runs very smoothly on this device. Delightful, considering the fact that this phone only comes with 512 MB of RAM. Then again, Microsoft has confirmed support for low end hardware like this in the final version of the operating system.
Even if, for the moment, only Lumia 630, 730 and 830 are capable of running it.
The big question here is what kind of options and features these budget handsets will miss out on, and we may well have to wait a while for the answer to this query.
