Developer gets Android 6.0 works on Lumia 525




A developer has managed to install a version of Android 6.0 on the Windows Phone device Lumia 525. The software does not work fully, leaving no version for the general public is issued.

The software hack is working shown by a user on the XDA forum, which posted a number of videos for confirmation. According to the developer, who uses the pseudonym “banmeifyouwant ‘, the installation method on the Lumia 525, but also works on the Lumia 520. The software is installed CyanogenMod 13, which is again based on Android 6.0.

To install the Android software developer had to remove the Windows Phone software, including the boot loader. Then he installed TWRP; custom recovery software is often used to install custom Android software. TWRP via CyanogenMod 13 could then be installed.

In theory it is possible that Android can also be installed on other Lumia smartphones from Nokia or Microsoft. However, so far only the Lumia 520 and 525 supported; This probably has to do with the fact that the Android system does anything but smoothly. Many of the features are not functional, but this may be resolved in a later version. So do include the wifi and the sound it yet.

The installation method for CyanogenMod 13 is not yet publicly available. According to the developer is planning to next weekend to release an installer, so those interested can also install the Android software on their smartphones.
