New Update on the Windows Phone 7 ROM Leak
Since the new Windows Phone 7 ROM for the HTC Mondrian leaked out, many developers have been working very hard on dumping the ROM.
The tools we currently use for Windows Mobile didn’t seem to be working with this completely new WP7 ROM.
XDA developers l2tp and Da_G have managed to dump the ULDR, XIP and IMGFS. The IMGFS is the most valuable and desirable part of the ROM. The compression method used for the ROM, called XPH, caused the problem that we couldn’t use existing tools for dumping it.

I’m trying to dump imgfs partition, found that XPH is a bit modified XPR, changed IMGFS header to XPR and mamaich’s imgfstodump worked ok but produced dump is almost full of zeroes. the smallest files like .lnk and .png and some .dsm are dumped correctly. i think that XPH uses bigger block size while compression than XPR, so if we have sources of imgfstodump and also cecompr.dll from xip dump we can try to reconstruct the algorythm, it does not differ very much from existing XPR.
p.s. all imageinfo.bin seem to be dumped correctly using default imgfstodump.
The developers will continue working on the dump, trying to figure out how it works. They also discovered this interesting registry edit:

Those red words refer to the 1,3 Ghz processor from Qualcomm. This device really is going to be a beast! Check out the thread for more information, but please refrain from posting in the thread unless your posts are useful for the developers.

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
