As Microsoft announced at WinHEC Shenzhen 2015, they released Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 10586 for Xiaomi MI4, which is an Android phone.
The ROM is on insider.windows.com.
Besides, a partition dump of 10581 is floating around the Internet, may be interesting because Microsoft has ported UEFI to this Android phone.

Sorry for the Baidu link since this is not my own share.

Android is an OS, not a CPU type or phone company, so why call it an "Android phone" ?

An Android phone is a phone manufactured by a company, be it big or small that runs Android by default. The CPU type does not matter.

Similarly, saying "Windows Phone" to refer to a phone that runs Windows 10 Mobile or earlier, or "iOS device" for Apple devices that use iOS isn't wrong either.

Lol, you come late, file sharing has been canceled, the next time you want breakfast yo.
啊哦,你来晚了,分享的文件已经被取消了,下次要早点哟。


Wow such sass!

Is the next WinHEC Shenzhen 2016 going to be in March as well? It's right around the corner!

Cortualla did this with Windows 8 RT over on XDA a long time ago. Pity he didn't release the source.

I know this will never happen, but MS should release CWM/TWRP flashable zip files for this so you can install Windows 10 Mobile on Android in "one-click". That would gain them more marketshare. But then again they wouldn't make money on this unless they charged for it.

Seeing as that link is down and I couldn't find it on the website for some reason I signed up on the Xiaomi forums and got this link to download:

http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... Retail.zip

It would be great to get that partition dump too but the link is down :(

I don't think Microsoft wants to void your warranty, Which is what rooting and installing custom ROMs does.

Look at what Xiaomi have done and partnered with MS. I reckon a lot of similar Chinese OEMs would do this agreement too to make their phones stand out in the heavily crowded budget nonname smartphone crowd
