LG Windows Phone 7 OEM Apps Dumped And Available
XDA member fb401 comes bearing some gifts from the world of LG and Windows Phone 7. Surely, the carriers and manufacturers are putting a lot of time and effort into the apps that they create for mobile devices, but as we are all a little bit envious, we want to have them for other devices as well. With that in mind, the dev has dumped the OEM apps for the LG Panther and has shared them with the rest of the community. It is worth noting that, while the XAP are available, many of them are specifically coded to work only on the devices they were meant for. So, until someone comes through and ports these apps (or breaks the code that locks the apps to the specific device), there may not be a lot of use for many of them.
If you feel that you may be able to help in porting these apps to other Windows Phone 7 devices, or at least getting them to work, please feel free to stop by the thread.
I know some people have been looking for these. Hopefully opening these up can possibly give us undocumented access to the camera and other functions, as well as someone possibly helping me with coming up with registry and file editors.
You can find more information in the dump thread.

This year, cardboard returned...
