    Ok, there has been tons of talk about flashing the M8 Android device to Windows Phone, but I haven't seen many people attempting to do the opposite. Is there any possible way of obtaining the VZW RUU for the latest Android release to try this? The device ID comes up different in Verizon's software, but the actual hardware is the same.

    Anyone have access to the RUU and how to force boot in to the device? Most people are working the dual boot thing forwards into Windows Phone... I thought I'd try it backwards to see what happens - if I can find the stuff I need.

    You need to go to XDA for this sort of thing

    Just a little advice,If you need to ask where a VZW RUU can be obtained my guess is you might just want to leave your as is.Because first verizon doesnt use RUU's, there are some home made packages on xda and thats about it

    Actually... They do use RUU's still, but not in the old fashioned - download and install way. They use their new SRA software via PC, the RUU is downloaded locally to a temp folder, then flashed to you device. 99.9% of people update OTA, which I why there are "no" RUU's to be found. I actually have a copy of the RUU for the lastest WP version, but I am looking for one for the 4.4.4 Android release.

    And yes, I have already posted over at XDA, but was hoping someone here had captured the RUU as well.

    Thanks though!
