ADDENDUM: Step 7 after the first foundation chain should be to COL 8. This is fixed and noted.

ADDENDUM #2: Several True Achievers are commenting that this may have to be done in one sitting. In particular, if your phone locks due to inactivity, it may invalidate that playthrough. They advise lengthening the lock-out period of time, or make sure you tap in a blank space to 'keep it alive' while you're checking the guide. If this addendum is correct, I STRONGLY recommend using some other method of checking this guide than the same phone you are playing on. Copy it down to another piece of paper if needs be, instead of flipping back and forth between IE and Solitaire on your phone.

After starting a game of FreeCell, tap the lower right corner to bring up the menu bar, then click the gear icon to select Options. From this screen, the first option has a box for you to enter in the game #. Enter "617", then tap the button to load the specific layout.

From this point, the following list of moves should solve the layout. My format is " #:VS-># " where:
# - Location (column #, 1 being leftmost, H for holding cell, and F for foundation)
V - Face value, A for ace, 2-9, T for 10, J for Jack, Q for Queen, K for King
S - Suit. "H"-eart, "D"-iamond, "S"-pade, "C"-lub
"->" - Move from first location to this second location.

As an example, " 3:KH->5 " would mean, from column 3 (third from the left), move the King of Hearts (and everything on it) to column 5 (fifth from the left).

At this point, the table should clear, you should get a win, and you might unlock the achievement. If not, try replaying a few times. Just like every windows phone game out there, Microsoft just phoned it in, so it may get glitched at first, but it should still be attainable.
