    I know but you have to search 50+ pages to get everything.
    This is just a summery off the findings in that topic.

    Caution with old V!sta RedPill, it will break the folowing:
    • Genuine Center
    • Aero peak
    • min/max animations
    • Windows Media Center

    There is quite a number of sites that offers downlod of a batch file that adds "take ownership" to the right click(context menu), it's much simpler.

    If you do it manual then you know how it works and you dont have to download 3th party tools.

    just wanted to know if this way is right ? is it uptodate now.

    1/ Clean 7955 install
    2/ h t t p://ultrawindows.nl/win8/ Unlocked Ribbon UI/Full DWM / Apps Explorer.
    Don't forget to run them as admin.
    3/ For some unknown reason, i coudn't enter the product key via Genuine Center, so did in in the elavated command prompt
    h t t p://w w w.mydigitallife.net/activate-windows-8-m2m3-build-7955-with-free-windows-7-beta-product-keys/

    Had to use phone activation since online activation seem broken, it's totally free and safe using skype (you don't even need a microphone).

    h t t p://w w w.mydigitallife.net/how-to-activate-windows-7-by-phone-activation/
    After that, windows was activated, and i just used sCooBy's files which were given by ReelFiles a few post earlier.

    mediafire.com/file/1z0zdhmeprx5uqn/Redpill.zip

    The easy way to install them is 1/ Install this : h t t p://w w w.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/

    2/Go to /Windows/System32 Take ownership of slc.dll and systemcpl.dll , then for each one of them, go into properties, Security, Edit and allow Full Control to Administrators_ploc .

    Now, you can backup them both (i usually rename them .old.dll in order not to loose them).

    Finally, place the content (3 files) of Redpill.zip in /Windows/System32 .

    Finally restart windows, and i think everything that can be unlocked for now will be unlocked (did i forget something ? )

    pdf reader/metro UI/ windows phone 7 style boot screen / new task manager

    going to install it tommorow

    just set pdf files to open in 'X:\Program Files\Microsoft\Windows.glcnd\glcnd.exe'

    remember to install the registry hack from 7850 or it'll launch in immersive mode.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint\Capabilities]
    "CLSID"="{D3E34B21-9D75-101A-8C3D-00AA001A1652}"

    YIPEEE!!!
    I got new oobe the first time (last step of installation).

    steps.
    1. You need to have a dual-boot(or better/ live os)
    2. During install after 2nd reboot, don't go to the setup, instead log into the other OS(in case of multiboot) or boot the live os.
    3. Perform the red-pill patching (instructions above( slc.dll, slx.dll & systemscpl.dll) in the system32 folder using the file explorer of the os/live os

    4. Resume setup.

    Now you will get new oobe like I did at the first time itself

    Enjoyyyy
