    Initiate Store upgrade from Windows 8, and use Fiddler/Wireshark to capture link

    or initiate the Store upgrade within Windows 8.1, then get link from DataStore.edb (you may use ESEDatabaseView or ESD Download Links Viewer)

    what script you used to convert?
    IIRC, i never included CoreARM as supported edition

    I used the decryption package you linked in Step 1 of 'HOW TO USE' and the ESD for 'Windows 8.1 RT (ARM)' listed with the other IR5 ESDs.

    Well, the script determine the label based on SPBUILD value reported by install.wim (index 4 in ESD)
    it seems it still at 17056 = IR4
    cosmetic issue

    nevertheless, i think Windows 8.1 RT OS doesn't allow the regular boot setup process to install, it needs to be booted in recovery environment
    so the resulted ISO from decryption package won't be proper for that

    The four links for esd-decrypter-v4f.7z are not available.

    I downloaded the latest esd-decrypter-wimlib-37 back then and got the message below.
    So esd-decrypter-wimlib-8 is the latest for Windows 8.1 ESD's.

    Not sure what you mean.

    Can't use v37 (or v18) to convert the latest Windows 8.1 IR5 ESD to an ISO file as per text in decrypt.cmd.

    So downloaded v8 from the link above provided by abbodi, which doesn't have the warning text.

    In any case, the info will help anyone else trying to convert a Windows 8.1 ESD to an ISO file.

    I know
    unless someone sha1 hashed the files, there are no chance to get working links for them

    You are changing the wrong key, the correct is
    Package_for_KB2976978~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.3.2.1

    or start cmd with NSudo as TrustedInstaller and execute:
    Code:
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Component Based Servicing\Packages\Package_for_KB2976978~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.3.2.1\Owners" /v Package_for_KB2976978~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.3.2.1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x20070 /f
    dism /Online /NoRestart /Remove-Package /PackageName:Package_for_KB2976978~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.3.2.1
