New Windows Phone 7 ROM Image Released
A new build (6176) of the Windows Phone 7 OS image (for the x86 emulator) has been released with the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP Refresh, and xda-devs member RustyGrom has unlocked it using the same method as for the old (6077) ROM image in the SDK.

The interface is currently quite simplistic and will probably be updated as development continues.
