Windows 98 Successfully Installed on iPhone 6 Plus

Well you may not believe a word from what I am going to say right now, but please try.. According to a new post published on a popular tech forum a Chinese user with the handle xyqo58775 figured out a new way to install Windows 98 on his iPhone 6 Plus, and the most interesting part is that he seems to have managed to do it without jailbreaking his device.
It is not the first time someone has ported Windows on an iPhone. Back in 2009, some Russian hackers had managed to port Windows 95 on the iPhone 3G. However, it is the first time someone has managed to get it working on an iPhone 6 Plus, and without jailbreaking. The developer claims that he has managed to get Windows 98 running on his iPhone 6 Plus using iDos app (App Store link), an emulator that allows you to play dos games on your iPhone or iPad, and by making some modifications.

The Chinese guy is saying that he is "not a big God" and all what he has done is using the existing resources and tools available out there to get Windows 98 up and running on his iPhone 6 Plus. He also states that while installing Windows XP is theoretically possible on the iPhone, the installation process will automatically exit after a certain point and there is no solution to bypass the problem for now. He plans to get Windows XP running on iPhone 6 Plus whenever he gets time.

Would you like to give it a try ? If you can read Chinese, you may want to head forward and try this step-by-step guide to install Windows 98 on iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus from here. If not, I’d recommend you to wait until someone translates the guide in English since Google Translate does not particularly do a good job.

I think it is a very weird thing to see Windows 98 running on the iPhone 6 Plus.. Right ?

Finally I am going to leave you with some photos of Windows 98 running on iPhone 6 Plus... Enjoy...
