ReviOS - 2004 - S1.0

12th of June 2020

Created by: Revision

Special thanks to RavenouZ for testing and always providing amazing feedback!

IMPORTANT

  • NEW Build based on 2004 (19041.329)

  • No compromises, yet outstanding performance and excellent compatibility with full Store and Xbox support

  • Heavily inspired by LTSC builds, specifically their component setup

  • Ultimate Performance power plan added

  • Re-introduced various removed components

    • Following the new method of disable > remove

NEW

  • Useless tweaks and commands removed

    • Privacy tweaks slightly changed to fix bugs and support Appx-related programs.

  • Full Xbox support, including support for Xbox GamePass

  • Removed MarkC mouse curve, to get the more 'natural' default curve

    • Mouse acceleration still remain pre-disabled out of the box

  • Process mitigations disabled

    • Improves CPU-based performance

  • Stability improvements

    • Store, languages and Xbox features are working as expected (GameBar untested)

  • Only essential UWP apps are kept

    • The missing apps can be re-downloaded through Microsoft Store

  • Cortana removed and fully disabled

    • Can be re-installed through Store if wanted

FIXED

  • Language install bug

  • Windows Auto Update bug

  • BitLocker Error

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Starting with 2004 S1.0 and up UAC will only partly be disabled in S versions, as this will render Edge (Chromium) fully functional. This may introduce other bugs, such as the DirectX 9.0 Web setup bug shown here.

    • This is easily fixed by running the the setup in elevation (administrator mode), so right click the installer and hit "Run as administrator".

    • If you do not need Edge and don't run into any elevation issues, you may want to fully re-disable UAC. We've provided you with a solution in Workspace.

  • Default System Sounds remain pre-disabled in ReviOS. Normal audio works as it's supposed to, only the Sounds are disabled.

    • If the community deems this an unnecessary change - Revision will resort back to the original System Sounds in coming builds.
