Windows_Phone_7.8

Over the last couple of months, we’ve been bringing you news of devices getting a Windows Phone 7.8 port. These were based on an unofficial leak that was ported to a bunch of devices. For some Nokia owners, though, there is no need to flash a port because the Nokia Lumia 610, 710, and 800 all now have official releases for users to flash.

XDA Senior Member djtonka¬†posted a discussion thread for those who have the Nokia 710 and 800. So far, it’s mostly users confirming that the update is working in a myriad of countries and models. So far, no one has reported any problems. It seems to be up and working in most regions, and no one is complaining that it doesn’t work yet. However, there are a lack of flashi. . . READ ON »

NAND Access and InteropUnlock for Lumia 710 and 800

Nokia Lumia 8007

The Windows Phone 7 platform has been slowly and, for the most port, silently gaining momentum since the release of the first Windows phone. With Windows 8 right around the corner, one can only assume that development for these devices will continue to grow as more devices become available and MetroUI becomes even more widely appreciated. For those carrying the Nokia Lumia 710 and 800, the development has been pushing along just fine without Windows 8.

XDA Senior Member biktor_gj has recently released a ROM that is supported by the Lumia 710 and 800 that is the first of its kind to support NAND Access and InteropUnlock which is a huge push forward for ROM development.

For those who don’t know what InteropUn. . . READ ON »

Nokia Says Lumia 800 Battery Life Is Fixed, Promises Updates For Audio And Camera Quality

nokia-lumia-800_group

While Nokia’s first Windows Phone, the Lumia 800, has been critically acclaimed for its unique industrial design, it has had its fair share of issues regarding battery life and audio and camera quality. In a statement posted on its official support forums, Nokia says that the recent 1600.2483.8106.11500 update indeed fixes all problems related to battery life, according to internal testing.

For those that are still complaining, Nokia suggests that they should stop using the diagnostics tool that can be opened by dialing ##634#, since it was designed for testing purposes only and can show lower battery capacity even if the battery life isn’t negatively affected at all. Instead, the battery s. . . READ ON »

Firmware Update For Nokia Lumia 800 Rolling Out, Fixes Battery Performance

nokia-lumia-800_group

Back in December, Nokia acknowledged that the Lumia 800, one of its first Windows Phones, had a firmware issue that rendered it unable “to access the full battery capacity”, and promised a fix for early 2012. In a blog posting, the Finish phone maker has now announced the promised update that brings the firmware version to 1600.2483.8106.11500 and, besides fixing said battery bug, also improves WiFi performance.

As usual with such updates, they will not roll out for everyone at once. Instead, this update will be phased over the next two weeks, with about half receiving it in the first week and the other half in the second. If you’re really impatient and want it immediately, you can try forcin. . . READ ON »

XDA TV at CES: Hands on with Nokia Lumia 800 and 900

lumia

Just about a year ago, Nokia announced that it would be going with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 OS as its operating-system-of-choice going forward. The resulting devices have been quite impressive, with the first being the Lumia 800, now shipping in Europe, and now the Lumia 900, available as the first Windows Phone Mango device with LTE in the coming months on AT&T. XDA TV spent some time with both of these new devices at CES 2012 and found build quality to be top-notch and performance to be impressive thanks to the single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4GHz CPU with 512MB of RAM.

Former Microsoftie Justin Angels,¬†now working for Nokia evangelizing Windows Phone 7 development, is personally (that is, not on behalf of Microsoft or Nokia) giving away five new carrier-unlocked Lumia 800 to homebrew developers. Here’s his post:

My goal is to give this hardware out to devs who will use it for either:

  • Port existing homebrew apps/features/hacks to Nokia Lumia 800.
  • Create new Nokia Lumia specific homebrew apps/features/hacks.
  • Anything else that you can convince me makes sense.

“I want one of these free phones, what’s next?”

Nokia Lumia 800, Motorola Atrix 2, and Motorola Droid Razr Forums Added

logo

Our not-so-little-anymore family keeps growing, and at a fast pace, I might add. We have added 3 new forums to our beloved xda-developers: Nokia Lumia 800, Motorola Atrix 2, and Motorola Droid Razr. The latter was added this past weekend, but it is still worth mentioning it as it is the first device that will be released with the infamous “Razr” branding on it since its flip phone counter part. This device is rumored to be loaded with ICS as Moto is now “partnered” with Google, but the official specs claim that it will come with Gingerbread. Other outstanding specs from this device are its ridiculously thin profile of 7.1 mm, 4.3 in Super AMOLED screen, and dual core 1.2 GHz OMAP processor. . . READ ON »
