    I am interested, has anyone tried this on a phone other than the Mi 4?
    Assuming the basic platform is the same (Snapdragon 801, 1080p screen, etc.), the Mi 4 ROM and flashing instructions should be fully functional?
    As an OnePlus One owner looking to move to Windows Mobile 10, this is quite tempting to try…
