Free Your Windows Phone 7 With WP7 Root Tools
Looks like Windows Phone 7 hacking is becoming more and more interesting as time goes by. This time, XDA member Heathcliff74 brings us the first release (read alpha quality release) of his Root Tools for WP7. The tools currently work only for Samsung Devices using this OS (aka the Samsung Focus) due to Samsung specific parts of software that needed to be used to make the tool work. The app, which at this point consists of a registry editor, will allow you to tinker with low level parts of the registry that deal with services and other normally locked parameters of the phone. Most of you coming from Windows Mobile will know and understand the dangers of messing with the registry. However, back with WM, things were easier to solve if one messed up somewhere. As hacking Windows Phone 7 is still taking off, it would be good to be cautious and not try anything fancy unless you know what you are doing.
Please leave some feedback for the dev.
This is the first release of a tool, that I’ve been working on for the past months. With this tool you get root-access to parts of your WP7 device. The first release only contains a registry-editor. The file-explorer and certificate stores will follow.
