Before trying to install Windows RT 8.1 on Lumia 640 XL you need to know what doesn’t work and that some steps are quite risky. So, do it at your own risk.

While this project is not totally finished (e.g. No Battery status/charging unknown, no cellular, no audio), I decided to post this thread as many people asked me about the tutorial. This is just a brief tutorial, you need to have plenty of time on this to make this happen. Be careful as some steps are very dangerous.
