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.
Keep an eye on the XDA-portal for more updates about the WP7 ROM leak!

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
