Microsoft’s purpose for releasing the preview version of Windows 11 happened to be fulfilled this week whereby a young engineering student called Gustave Monce had to team up with a fellow student in his field of study, Bingxing Wang, together they discovered how to port Microsoft’s flagship OS with the minimum 5.7-inch display to function with the software company’s Lumia 950 XL. Still, this does not certify that the animations will move according to their programmed speed.
In line with Gustave’s comment, this is an achievement that has been in development to integrate the typical Windows OS with its similar Windows smartphone — “It all started 5 years ago when Windows 10 Mobile was near obsolescence.” The two engineers, Bingxing and Gustave have reportedly developed this project five years ago.
Gustave said. “as time went on and we started talking about it, discussion groups formed, and in turn, we had a community of people interested in running full Windows 10 on Lumia 950s. We’re now basically a team of about 15 people, and we’ve made a lot of progress.”
“I wouldn’t say we were quite fast to do it, we took four years to get to the current state, but it’s impressive we got here with not much documentation on hand,” Gustave gave in-depth details of how he reverse-engineered Windows as a whole. “Of all that work for Windows 10 and the work we previously did to support Windows 10X, Windows 11 was a natural path forward, and didn’t take much to get going.”
Aside from Gustave and Bingxing, they also have a team of tech experts — as well as a dedicated web page that stores their documentaries on their ongoing research about merging Windows 10 and the current 11th OS edition — integrating this software with Windows nostalgic smartphone.
The integration appears to be creative but less perfect whereby the default inbuilt apps fail to function as expected — camera app, SMS & calls can’t launch, and battery capacity can’t be accessed as well. This function failed because Microsoft has made severe changes to its OS system.
Still, the fun part about the whole reverse engineering scheme depicts that even abandoned things can still come in handy. Regarding the fact that the Lumia series is purportedly programmed with complex UI. Techbooky expects the software company to duly utilize these skilled engineers in modifying untold technology.
Nonetheless, a similar approach of mix-matching OS to be compatible with a single device has previously been starred with HTC HD2 devices — this integration involved Android OS, such as the ROM, and Mod that custom HTC’S device — including Windows legendary phone 8. Meanwhile, porting Windows 11 depicts anything is possible with technology.
