Convert Z64A to Windows 8.1 Z64W

Discussion in 'NEO Z64 Android OS' started by Gadget Friendly, Mar 17, 2015.

  1. This video demos how to install Windows 8.1 in replacement of the Android OS on the NEO Z64A. A license key is required in order to have an activated copy of windows and you must have your own disc image of Windows to install from. Everything here is reversible but unless you do an emmc backup you will lose all data when reinstalling / switching between the two OS's. Be sure to carefully watch the video and if you have any Q's be sure to post em before doing something youre unsure of!

  2. @Mods - Can this be moved to guides and FAQs? Ill be updating this later with a video on how to backup the EMMC storage which will make switching a lot less painless as far as reinstalling apps.

    This is great! I'm off work for a couple of weeks soon and looking forward to giving this a go. Great work!

    I finally did this today. I was using my sons z64w and even though i am a massive fan of Android, for me the Z64W is a better experience than my Z64A.

    I have not had any Audio delay since i switched my Z64a to a Z64w and Plex runs without Issue.
    Best thing i did was switch the Android OS.

    Great post and Tutorial

    I don't know if it works for you, but when I want to download the zip-files, my browser say that this files contains a virus?

    and yet we get this:

    Sorry, this file is infected with a virus
    Only the owner is allowed to download infected files.

    can you re-upload via dropbox or something else
