Windows 11 on dozens of mobiles, if you’re brave

Project Renegade is a development project that has successfully started Windows 11 on a large number of Android devices. Of course, the process is not in anyone’s hands. First, custom firmware is required. The developers recommend compiling a Tianocore EDK II image on your phone’s bootloader. They also make it easy to access precompiled binaries in their corresponding GitHub repository.

The process is not easy: you have to compile the firmware to start Windows on the Android bootloader and perform a completely manual installation.

Once the firmware is installed, the Windows compilation for ARM64 is downloaded from UUP Dump, the installer is prepared manually and that’s it, after applying the package in this pre-installation environment, the mobile boots in Windows 11 As you can see, this is quite a complex process that requires some development knowledge, it goes beyond installing a simple ROM from recovery or fastboot mode.

Once installed, we have Windows 11 on the mobile, with obvious limitations due to driver problems (sound, camera, etc.), but giving us the opportunity to try it. An adventure for the bravest, who will be able to enjoy the Microsoft operating system on the following devices.
