After 2 evenings of work especially with Interop Tools (turned out I needed version 1.9 in the starting 14393 build and then a version 2.0 from store plus some other files once creator's update was installed to get to Fall Creator's update), I pretended my phone was an Alcatel Idol 4 Pro in the Registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/Platform/DeviceTargetingInfo
'PhoneManufacturer' - change to "Alcatel"'PhoneManufacturerModelName', set this to "6077X"'PhoneModelName', write in 'IDOL 4 Pro"The first version (15063.297) of Creator's Update took a long time and had a blank screen problem, but I connected it still running with its blank screen via USB to a windows PC running the otcupdater.exe app from Microsoft and said otcupdater uploaded the most recent 15063 build to it; this booted and the screen worked fine.I am now running version 10.0.15254.401 (=May 8, 2018) seemingly without too many glitches (the lock screen stayed on permanently until I did a hard reset using the power and volume buttons which also reinstates the phone as an Acer S58).The reason I upgraded is that I believe we have had the last AU monthly upgrade from Microsoft while 15254 is good till 2019… as a bonus the camera app seems better.
Microsoft has since removed OTCUPDATER.EXE from their website... any
link I found to it on this site was broken... any idea where to find it?
