Opera Mini Running on Windows Phone 7
No, Opera didn’t suddenly release a WP7-version of their mobile browser. Instead, our recognized developer ultrashot has managed to port the Windows Mobile version to make it work on fully unlocked Windows Phone 7 devices.
What is it?
That’s Opera Mini 5.1 initially built for Windows Mobile. I’ve just added an extra layer that makes it running.
The only limitation so far is no rotation support – but this limitation will be deleted in future.
Why does it only work on fully unlocked ROMs (like DFT Freedom)? Isn’t developer/interop unlock enough to run it?
Developer unlock will let you install xap. Interop unlock will let inbuilt interop library work. Full unlock will let Opera native exe run.
That means, nothing except Full unlock will help you run it. Don’t ask me about other unlock methods, that’s not something to discuss in this thread.
Go ahead and get the XAP in the forum thread.
