Tweak Your Lumia WP8 Device with Lumia Registry Modifier

Back when Windows Mobile ruled the roost in the pre-iPhone days of yesteryear, registry modification was quite a common means of device tweaking. This should come as no surprise, as such modifications have been commonplace for quite some time on the Windows platform on traditional computers. This process then continued onto Windows Phone 7.

Thanks to efforts by XDA Recognized Developer snickler, this is now possible for Nokia devices running Windows Phone 8. A couple of important notes to keep in mind, however, are that in the current release only HKLM (HKey_Local_Machine) is accessible. The other limitation is that currently, users cannot change dword values. Because of the dword limitation, changes to MaxUnsignedApp will not be saved. That said, progress towards that end can be made through Recognized Developer GoodDayToDie‘s WP8 Native Access project.

Using the registry editor is extremely simple, as described by the developer:

To Read Values:

1) Put the Registry key in the first box (ex. SOFTWARE\Classes\MIME\Database\Codepage\1254
2) Put the Registry Value in the second box (ex. 1254)
3) Press Get Value.

To Set Values:

1) Put the Registry key in the first box (ex. SOFTWARE\Classes\MIME\Database\Codepage\1254
2) Put the Registry Value in the second box (ex. 1254)
3) Put the new registry value result in the Set Value box.
4) Press Set Value.

Head over to the original thread to get started with the registry tweaking.
