Is it even worth the effort to convert stuff to English, when 1: your hacking together the OS and it probably won't be 100% correct, 2: The english leak will be out likely in the next 2-3 days at most, and 3: IF not Oct isn't that far away to have an OS without modifications all hacked into it.

 

Just saying.

I have not changed any system files at all only used Genuine 8.1 RTM files :) Not even touched a resource hacker or hex editor to do the above. Also know there is no point (that's why this is installed in a VM, just makes it easier to convert bits to English for exploring). As for English language that will come tomorrow (apparently). 

 

All you do is upgrade windows 8 English to 8.1 and change region / language settings to get the above result ;) I have not done it yet but once settings are changed i think you can remove apps left in chinese and then install the english ones from store. So its a simple 5 min thing to do no messing about really and makes it more easy to explore.

Looks like Wzor is about to leak the ISOs at anytime...

So, has a not-modified ISO already leaked?

He's still going to leak builds apparently (via other means it seems).

 

So yeah, latest news... the install.wim file that leaked today was corrupted, but was 'fixed' only to be found it's faulty and can't be used to upgrade and it throws errors on things like .NET 4 applications. Wzor posted on a Russian forum that he has the builds ahead of the September 1st date he thought they'd leak, and is probably going to leak them as soon as they're checked to be 100% complete (100GB of files to check and verify).

 

So yeah, not long now.

Not yet, Wzor will leak them soon hopefully.

It seems to me that there is some confusion about Retail vs MAK vs KMS in regards to what can be updated with the same key.

 

But Retail is pretty much safe from any perspective it seems.

I've upgraded and the install didn't accept my retail Pro key but yes, Win8 to win8.1 can be upgraded but through another way.

I have a legit 8,  it came pre installed, with no key because they're "Flashed" into the bios,  or whatever they decided with microsoft,  will it work correctly?

A MAK key should work depending on the number of activation left...So Upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1 is not possible? Only clean install?

Good question, I'm not sure honestly... :/ Maybe try to get/write the key down from the Bios and then try installing it? Or you could just try it and hope it works.

The best you can do using the ISO, is to keep your files/settings .. you will need to re-install your apps, or upgrade through the Windows Store in October.

How do I go about trying to find this?  I tired before when I first got it.  I suppose I can wait until October if need be.  Hmm.

Just FYI I was able to upgrade fully, using the "provided" key, then using my Retail key afterwards to activate. It gave me this options running the setup from Windows 8.0
