r1wpw1

It almost comes as no surprise that once again, the HTC HD2 has received yet another major development update, this time along with the Samsung Omnia 7. Development team XDA-Devs Europe brings us a world exclusive—the first custom ROMs based on the forthcoming Windows Phone 7 update, codenamed ‘Tango’, officially knows as ‘Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh’. Tango is said to bring a number of improvements to Windows Phone 7.5, including lower RAM requirements and MMS improvements.

The two custom ROMs are based on Tango RTM build 8773.98, which will soon be shipping to OEM manufacturers. Both ROMs are almost fully functional. However, according to the devs, a number of limi. . . READ ON »

WiFi Hotspot Enabled For Samsung Omnia 7

hotspot-500x586

We don’t talk as much as we should about WP7 in the Portal. However, and much against people’s skepticism, this platform is heavily being worked by several devs whom we know and remember from the golden days of Windows Mobile. In this particular case, Focus and Omnia 7 owners have gained a very important feature, previously unavailable: WiFi hotspot. XDA member drkfngthdragnlrd has posted a very complete guide on how to achieve this mod based on the original work released by XDA Recognized Developer OndraSter. This mod will allow you to tether through your device, regardless of what your carrier may say about your ability to do it with these devices.

Please follow the guide completely and read i. . . READ ON »

Omnia-7-Jailbreak

Originally posted on a Chinese forum, XDA forum member yhd4711499 has posted the tutorial on how to jailbreak your Omnia 7 running Mango.

If you have updated to Mango, you’ll need to roll back to 7932 or earlier and make sure your device is unlocked. The XDA member has posted the 4 files that you will need and step by step instructions.

Install Provxml on Omnia 7 – Under Development

Cook Chef Hat Spoons

Yup, you read it correctly. XDA member lyriquidperfection is jump starting the customization capability project for the Omnia 7. What does this mean? Well, if you are not familiar with cooking for Windows Mobile devices, you will have probably never heard of this before as it is not some app that you will go on and install, like you would with a cab. This is something that is used by chefs to allow the devices to run certain settings and customizations upon first boot. Lets say that you cooked your own rom and wanted the font to be wingdings (assuming that you had the font, of course) with a different size, color and a few other tweaks. Provxml will allow those settings to be placed in a xml file and be applied without you (. . . READ ON »

Samsung Omnia 7 Apps Unlocked For WP7 devices

110102091746282146

If you are a WP7 device owner and you’ve been admiring the apps from the Samsung Omnia 7, XDA forum member xboxmod has successfully unlocked various xap files for all WP7 devices.

The unlocked apps are:

  • NowHub
  • H3GHub
  • MobileTVFinal
  • MediaCenterFinal
  • SFR.WiFi
  • SFR.TV

In order to use the apps, you’ll need to download and install the certificate that xboxmod has provided. This has been tested on the HTC Trophy and some apps may be operator specific.

There have been reports that syncing with Zune will relock some devices resulting in a reinstall of the Samsung apps. The workaround for this is putting your phone in flight mode whilst syncing.

LG Optimus 7, Quantum, and Samsung Omnia 7 Forums Added

logo

We are very close to the release of the first Windows Phone 7 devices in the US and because of that, we decided that we would add, due to popular demand, a few extra device forums for people to have a place to play in. This time, we decided to add two new devices from the LG family (the Quantum and the Optimus 7) as well as the new incarnation of the Omnia series, the Samsung Omnia 7. All of these devices carry the newest from Microsoft and will add grounds for development to our ever growing community.

Do you have one of these devices already? Got any suggestions, comments, first impressions that you would like to share? Why not drop in the respective forum and share your two cents with the rest of the community.
