Windows Phone 7 Series Build Out!!

After a big rant about how much people love or hate the new Windows Mobile 7 platform, Xda-dev already has a build floating around in the Windows Phone 7 Series forum under Development and Hacking.

Member l2tp has posted a build of WP7S for some of the developers to start working on. However, if you’re thinking “sweet, I will flash this to my HD2″ you might want to hold your horses, this build is only compatible with x86, which means that it only runs on a PC at this point… You guessed it, it is a developers kit (an emulator).

This is still important since it is the first step to trying to crack the new OS wide open to see if we can make it even better. Porting to devices will be a long process since virtually everything will have to be re-written for it to even boot, but at least now we have a sneak peak at the entrails of the beast. Anyways, most of us have been around for long enough to know that this is how it all begins :)

You can find more information in l2tp’s thread.

We'll see that first, then take a look at a new tool that aims to make the process much easier, and finally compare it to the popular Xposed framework to see how they...

M9: Is Throttling a Non-issue? Can’t We Trust Benchmarks?

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
