    Before you do anything, make sure you read the instructions carefully and keep in mind that this information is provided for assistance only, flash the firmware at your own risk. Some known issues with this install include the camera failing to take normal pictures and 3G not working.

    The first step is to prepare the device:

    Create a bootable Win 8.1 flash drive:

    1. Prepare a Fat32 format USB 2.0 flash drive with a least 8GB capacity (SD card and reader is fine). Try to avoid using USB 3.0 flash drive as it may lead to failure to install the software. Use only the keyboard and flash drive for this installation, whatever you do, do not connect the mouse.

    2. Download WinPE.rar,  x98_3G_windows_20140611.part1.rar and x98_3G_windows_20140611.part2.rar. Extract them to the root of the flash drive.

    This is the flash drive directory, it is vital that you do not rename any of the files or folders.

    So maybe this is a little ignorant, but what advantages of the installed OS, if you don’t mind my asking?
