    Sorry but I don't know if it works or not. After seeing the admonishments about hurting your phone I'd be reluctant to try it.

    AFAIK only BlackBerry has successfully created a system that can host Android apps on a foreign (non-Android) operating system. Microsoft has floated the idea but it's not in General Availability status and I don't even think they are in alpha test status yet. Which means stay away. Stay far away!

    The main reason MS wants to do this is to get more apps for Windows Phones. If they had a choice they'd go for native Windows Universal apps. However Windows Phone has been available for something like 3-4 years now and the apps aren't coming. Windows Universal apps are still essentially brand new and no one knows successful those will be.

    Even successful emulators/recompilers/porting systems, they often have technical problems running under the foreign OS. Or the user interface is so different, the users don't like it. Thus you can have a technical success but a business and workflow failure.

    Android apps on Windows Phone is nothing more than a hope and a dream at this point.
