Windows Phone Upgrade

Gone are those days when the hype for Windows Phones was real. Now only a handful of people are using them and Microsoft is officially ending its support on  December 10, 2019. This might be the time when Windows Phone users might have to upgrade.

The last Windows Phone came in 2016 and  Microsoft ensured that the last of the Windows Phone users get timely updates and security patches. This will change soon as Microsoft has finalized an end-of-support date for Windows Phone.

The company notes that Windows 10 Mobile, version 1709 was the last update to Windows Phone. Users will receive security patches till December 10. Post that, using Windows Phone will be dangerous as Microsoft will no longer monitor vulnerabilities and provide support.

If you are a Windows Phone user, it’s the right time to upgrade to either iOS or Android. You might get back to the Windows platform once Microsoft launches the Surface Phone.

Keep following for Windows news and more!

Is WhatsApp UWP Coming to Windows 10? https://www.onetechstop.net/2018/06/15/is-whatsapp-uwp-coming-to-windows-10/ https://www.onetechstop.net/2018/06/15/is-whatsapp-uwp-coming-to-windows-10/#respond Sat, 16 Jun 2018 01:47:30 +0000 https://www.onetechstop.net/?p=31569

Well, it just might be. Windows Central reported that a UWP version of the WhatsApp App might be under the works. It says that Microsoft and WhatsApp both are working together closely for developing a modern version of the messaging app.

WhatsApp for Windows Phone is based on Silverlight which was something used way back in 2014. But it is one of those few apps which receives regular updates from the developer and has all the features on par with its iOS and Android counterparts.

But if Microsoft’s rumored Andromeda Device comes into action, WhatsApp might not be available for it. Because modern devices based on Andromeda won’t support Silverlight. Luckily, it appears that Microsoft may be working closely with WhatsApp in bringing its Silverlight app to UWP, along with updating its UI with a refreshed interface that features Fluent Design.

This concept art of the work was recently popped up on Behance by a Microsoft-hired designer. Unfortunately, Balance pulled out the listing after Windows Central tried to approach them for a comment. This gave us a clue about the apparent partnership between Microsoft and WhatsApp. The only context surrounding this work is a paragraph on what the project is about:

WhatsApp is a free cross-platform app owned by Facebook. You can make video calls and send text messages, voice messages, documents, and user locations. I have been supporting the team with porting WhatsApp from Silverlight to UWP. We want them to bring their app to Windows 10 desktop and integrate unique Windows 10 features like Ink and Fluent Design. The project had [a] successful result which led to WhatsApp partnering with Microsoft, and we earned high praise from the WhatsApp team

This doesn’t prove that Microsoft and WhatsApp will be launching and app but it does tell us that at least they might be thinking about it. It would be super awesome if Microsoft and WhatsApp actually manage to launch an app like this. WhatsApp UWP app would combine the functionality of both the Windows Phone app and the Windows 10 desktop app available today. On desktops, the UWP app would simply act as a “relay” application allowing users who use WhatsApp on their iOS or Android device and send and receive WhatsApp content directly on their PC via WhatsApp Web syncing.

Hacker releases steps to install Windows 10 on ARM on Lumia 950 XL https://www.onetechstop.net/2018/05/14/hacker-releases-steps-to-install-windows-10-on-arm-on-lumia-950-xl/ https://www.onetechstop.net/2018/05/14/hacker-releases-steps-to-install-windows-10-on-arm-on-lumia-950-xl/#respond Mon, 14 May 2018 14:58:42 +0000 https://www.onetechstop.net/?p=31127

Bingxing Wang, or @imbushuo on Twitter, is finally confident enough with his hack to let others try it too. He released another video of his Lumia 950 XL running Windows on ARM on Twitter and detailed steps to install it on his Github repository.

Ben has been working on this for quite a long time while teasing other users along the way. He failed too, probably that’s why he wasn’t sure on releasing the steps, as it might brick others devices for those who try. Even still, there’s high chance that one might brick his/her phone in the process, hence proceed only if you know what you’re going to do.

To install Windows on ARM on your Lumia 950 XL:

  1. Use WPInternals 2.4 to unlock bootmgfw
  2. Check out Boot Shim. This Boot Manager Application implements a simple ELF loader for the kickstarter (LK).
  3. Check out LK. You need the msm8994-test-2 branch. Build MSM8994 target, then you will get a emmc_appsboot.mbn file.
  4. Re-partition your Lumia 950XL, shrink the Data partition, create a new partition with GPT name boot, and another uefi_vars (reserved for further use). 4MB for both partition is okay. Tools like cgdisk is recommended.
  5. Place emmc_appsboot.mbn in the WP EFIESP root directory, copy Boot Shim EFI appliction to the EFIESP partition, create a new BCD entry for it.
  6. Boot to this BCD entry, you should enter Android Fastboot mode.
  7. Connect to your computer, flash the build: fastboot flash boot UEFI.elf
  8. Continue to UEFI: fastboot continue

Here’s how it looks on Lumia 950 XL:

Microsoft may not have officially released Windows on ARM for Lumia devices, but they did release Windows on ARM and the interop unlock tool last year that made this possible. With Microsoft completely abandoning Windows Mobile, all that’s left are independent devs that are keeping this platform (somewhat) alive.

Check out his Github Rep for more details.

Microsoft has released its monthly patch for Window 10 Mobile. The patch comes with important bug fixes and improvement, including a fix for PDF rendering.

Microsoft has finally released an important fix for Edge where users were not able to view PDF files in the app since last month’s cumulative update. This bug has been around for a while and has been affecting mobile users only. Meanwhile, susers had to resort to other means to view pdf files, Microsoft Reader app and other third party apps.

Here’s the changelog for today’s update (OS Build 15254.313):

This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • This build includes all the improvements from KB4088782.
  • Addresses issue in which PDFs cannot be rendered in Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 Phones.

This update also includes improvements from KB4088782:

  • Addresses issue with printing XML documents in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

  • Addresses issue where Internet Explorer stops working when using F12-based developer tools.
  • Updates legacy Document Mode cell visibility in Internet Explorer.
  • Addresses issue where Internet Explorer is unresponsive in certain scenarios when a Browser Helper Object is installed.
  • Addresses issue that causes online video playback to stop responding.
  • Addresses issue where, after installing KB4056891, KB4057144, or KB4074592 on a server, you may not be able to access SMB shared files in directory junction points or volume mount points hosted on that server. The error is “ERROR_INVALID_REPARSE_DATA”. As a result, editing some group policies using GPMC or AGPM 4.0 may fail with the error “The data present in the reparse point buffer is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80071128)”.
  • Due to recent work with our antivirus (AV) partners, AV software has now reached a sustained level of broad compatibility with Windows updates. After analyzing the available data, we’re lifting the AV compatibility check for the March 2018 Windows security updates for supported Windows 10 devices through Windows Update. We’ll continue to require that AV software be compatible. Devices with known AV driver compatibility problems will be blocked from updates. We recommend that customers check installed AV software compatibility with their AV provider.
  • Addresses issue in which WPF applications that are running on touch or stylus-enabled systems may stop working or stop responding after some time without any touch activity.
  • Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Desktop Bridge, Microsoft Graphics component, Windows Kernel, Windows Shell, Windows MSXML, Windows Installer, and Windows Hyper-V.

The update should be rolling out to all, you can check it’s progress on your device in Settings > Update > Check for updates.

Since Microsoft dropped the balls on Windows 10 Mobile, many developers who have supported the platform for all these years started leaving.  The recent developer to leave the platform is Kiloo, creator of the popular game Subway Surfer. Recently, Kiloo support team sent email to a customer stating that the Cairo update for Subway Surfers on Windows 10 Mobile will be the final update to the game due to Microsoft’s development plan for the platform.

Hi Frank,.
Thanks for being a loyal player on the Windows platform!
Unfortunately, Cairo is the last update for subway surfers on the platform. You can keep enjoying the game, but we will not release further updates, due to the development plan of the platform owner.
Best regards,
Kiloo

  • Addresses issue where the certutil.exe -MergePfx feature couldn’t produce a merged EPF file for multiple V1 certificates.
  • Addresses issue where MMC application snap-ins—such as Services, Local Policy Admin, and Printer Management—fail to run when Windows Defender Application Control (Device Guard) is turned on. The error is “Object doesn’t support this property or method.”
  • Addresses issue where booting with Unified Write Filter (UWF) turned on may lead to stop error 0xE1 in embedded devices, particularly when using a USB HUB.
  • Improves performance of Intel processors that have Hardware P-States (HWP) enabled.
  • Addresses issue where customers sometimes see the error message “Something went wrong” after completing the out-of-box experience.

Its no news to a Windows 10 Mobile user that the OS is dying, but a recent tweet by Brandon LeBlanc put the final nail in the coffin. With it  now confirmed that there will be no Windows 10 Mobile Insider  builds in future, there’s nothing much left to expect from Microsoft on Windows mobile platform.

Joe Belfiore in one of his tweets mentioned that Windows 10 mobile wasn’t their priority at that moment. They did, however, confirm that there will be security fixes and bug fixes in the upcoming builds. The recent tweet confirms that no new features will be released for Windows 10 Mobile, hence no Insider builds. The regular updates would likely be released directly to all users at the same time. So if you’re enrolled as an Insider for Windows 10 Mobile, it’s time to cancel enrollment as there’s no use for it in future.
