ROMAbout – A Tool for Windows Phone 7 Chefs
With the recent influx of new Windows Phone 7 devices into the market, Windows Phone development has steadily increased here at XDA. Because of this, we’re seeing some innovative Windows Phone applications coming from our developers.
XDA Senior Member IzaacJ has created a handy tool specifically for Windows Phone 7 ROM chefs. ROMAbout is a package that enables chefs to include a wide variety of information in their ROMs, which is made available to users via an application located in the phone’s Settings menu.
With ROMAbout, there are no limits as to what information chefs can display in their ROMs. From simple information like ROM version, build date and developer credits, to more technical data such as driver versions and specific registry values. And to top it off, there’s also the ability to include images alongside each item.
The developer is currently working on updates that will allow users to edit certain registry values of the app, that the chef pre-defines as editable. Another longer term goal of the developer is to be able to replace the default Windows Phone “About” screen.
If you are a Windows Phone 7 ROM chef, then you really should head over to the application thread and get cooking!
