Interop Tools for Windows 10 Mobile. How To, Download & other details

Interop Tools is a new Windows 10 Mobile registry editor, that allows  interop-unlocking, browsing and editing of registry entries. The tool has been developed by Gustave M, who is a well-known Windows enthusiast and developer. The latest update of the Tool adds support for Samsung devices (experimental) apart from Lumia devices. In this article (regularly updated) we not only provide the changelog of latest versions of the Tool but also have shared how to install the tool.

How to Download & Install:

  • Download the Appx file from here.
  • Now all you need to do is to turn on the developer option by going to Settings—>Update & Security–>For Developer–>Select Developer Mode and select “yes” when prompted. This enables side-loading of apps.
  • In case you are facing any issue with installation you may need to download the three dependencies before installing it.

  • You should be now able to install “Interop Tools” by tapping on the Appx that you have downloaded in first step. You should be ready to have some fun, though be careful before editing registry unless you know what you are doing.
  • Once installed, the app appears as a separate app in app list now.
  • You can follow the official XDA thread in case these instructions don’t work.

Interop Tools Update 1.3 Changelog:

+ Added the tweak page, only two tweaks atm, brightness and test signing, more to come in the near future
+ Added the interop unlock page, seeing how MS broke xap/appx sideloading completely in recent builds, I decided to add that functionality into my tool, the page should also show you what’s currently unlocked and what’s not.
+ Added experimental support for Samsung devices, this is untested so please report any bug or crash you may find.
~ Bug fixes.

Known issues:

* It appears there is an editing issue for the pagingfiles on redstone, where the value is not set, this might be due to the key being reverted automatically. This is under inspection.
? It appears there is an editing issue for the pagingfiles on threshold, where some “;” appears instead of spaces, I can’t reproduce it on my side, so if you could confirm or not confirm that to me on twitter that would be great.

Side notes:

* I know I need to add a way to alert from the app of new updates, this is under consideration.
* The tweak page is still in the works, if you have tweak ideas please tweet me them with the page where you found them or yourself if you found it, so I can properly credit peoples.

Interop Tools Update 1.2 Changelog:

+ The registry browser value editing dialog now displays the value type and name.
+ The registry browser now correctly handles write errors and will display them to you.
+ The registry editor now saves the history and has a new clear all button to clear all of them.
+ You can now tap a history item in the registry editor and it will fill all fields for you.
~ Improved the Registry browser ui again.
~ The app is now a regular app and not a settings app as there was many requests for this.
~ New icon for the app.
~ Small ui changes on the welcome page.
~ Bug fixes.
