Tweaker brings tool to rooten Lumia and create custom roms




Heathcliff74 developer has released a tool to rooten Lumia devices with Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 and make custom roms. It is the first time that the door is open for custom firmwares on new Windows Phone devices.

The tool does not support all Lumia’s. For example, lack especially newer Lumia such as the 435, 540, 640, 930 and 950 series. Why are the Lumia 520 and 525 on it, like the 920 and 925. Users must be running at least software version 8.10.12393. The developer also supports Windows 10-builds, including 10 586.

The tool allows users to unlock the bootloader, get root access to apps that normally can not or may run, backup and restore, and flashed firmwares. Therefore, it is possible to rotate so-called homebrew software. Also are apps available that have new opportunities as they escape the sandbox.

It is not the first time that there can be devices on Windows Phone root access, but that happened earlier primarily on Windows Phone 7 and with only a few models. There are no install custom ROMs for Lumia, but this tool makes it possible for the first, allowing sufficient interest there may be in the near future developers will get to work.
