Android applications on a smartphone with Windows? Thanks to the Astoria project it is possible. One of the users has resurrected this solution. Can I still work on Windows 10 Mobile in 2018?
If you are a Windows 10 Mobile user so far, you either do not believe in the death of this platform or you do not need many applications. I clung to this system myself, but at some point I had to say enough. But the sentiment remained. If you still have a smartphone with Windos in your drawer, you can give him a new life thanks to this solution. Just out of curiosity.The premiere of the mythical Surface Phone sometimes seems closer, and sometimes we stop believing in its existence at all. It does not change the fact that until now he was the only hope for meaningful devices with Windows. Up to now, because from now on, users of some Lumia smartphones and not only can use the root. Rooting lately has lost its popularity. Android has matured enough that there is no need to use a different system than the one provided by the manufacturer. Only few users still feel the need for deeper interference in the software. However, the situation is quite different with Windows 10 Mobile, which can not be counted on to support the manufacturer. Unlike green robocik, the Windows root-up routine was not easy at all, due to a whole lot of security. Now, installing applications from Android on smartphones with mobile windows will be possible thanks to the restoration of the so-called Astoria project, which was officially canceled by Microsoft. In the video below, you can see the man who implements this plan. This is not a simple procedure, so be sure to pay attention to details so that you do not "lock up" your smartphone for good. The only thing that will be able to serve then is a tasteful, but not very practical, paperweight. Personally, I would not be happy if my smartphone with Windows was my main phone. But if it's still in the drawer, it's worth trying. I would do it myself if I had one. Just because of curiosity, whether Android applications will work sensibly on the worn out Lumia.
