Windows Phone 7 Kitchen To Help Developers
Prospective Windows Phone 7 developers don’t have the vast options available to Android users yet in terms of kitchens, but the wheels are turning to get more people involved in Windows Phone 7 development. XDA Recognized Developer -=Barin=- has developed a kitchen that will, as he says:
can port/rebuild XIP (NK) and build IMGFS partition file for Windows Phone 7 with real registry recompiling and relocations according to WP7 memory model.
It can also build NB (D000FF container only) and NBH files for HTC WP7 devices (tested on HTC HD2, HTC HD7 and HTC Mozart).
This kitchen is an extension from -=Baron=-‘s OSBulder for WM, a kitchen for the original Windows Mobile operating system that has been adapted for Windows Phone 7.
For more information, change log, feature list, screenshots and download links, you can find the Windows Phone 7 thread here and you can find additional information and discussion in the original WinMo thread, which has been modified to include WP7 material as well, in its original thread. Keep in mind that this is for development purposes, so make sure to read up on Windows Phone 7 framework before attempting to use it.

This year, cardboard returned...
