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.

Some of the most interesting pictures are time-lapse animations that capture the passage of time. Someone painting a house, someone building a treehouse, or a sunset are just a few of the ideas for a time-lapse session. A lot of smartphone cameras have some great power now, so why not use a smartphone. Developer Nathan Osman offers up an app that creates simple and easy time-lapse photos.

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...
The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
