We posted a few days ago that the hacker team working on Windows 10 on ARM for the Lumia 950 XL had had a breakthrough which allowed them to access the SIM card slot on the handset.
At the time this was only a start, as cellular data did not work yet.
Now a mere 3 days later it appears that minor hiccup has been overcome.
It happened! Cellular partially works! Just no LTE right now. Thanks to at least 6 people for testing helping and all! Will need to polish everything up now. pic.twitter.com/NYs6QUcQOd

Gustave Monce posted the following screenshots from his handset, confirming that cellular data, though not LTE, was working on the device.
While this may seem like we are going full circle, the Lumia 950 XL was never able to run Photoshop or Chrome, showing that Windows 10 on ARM on the Lumia 50 XL is a special breed of device.
