Working HD2 Green Mango With Working Marketplace

Ports on our devies are simply brilliant projects. They are, for the most part, dreams come true. For instance, having Windows Phone 7 running on a much older device was deemed by many as an impossible feat. However, after lots of collaboration between devs, the project got successfully completed by our friends over at DFT. As it is customary with Microsoft, the new updates of the OS roll out filled with bugs, bug-fixes, and new and improved security updates. Now, translating that into plain English, security updates stand for patching loopholes and exploits that allowed hackers to do more fun stuff with the device and the OS. The case is here for Mango as well, which our friends at DFT ported once more. However, as it was the case for the original port, Market does not work with the new version, or at least it didn’t until earlier today when XDA member elfinlazz released his first rom, which happens to be loaded with a Market enabler tool that he coded himself. Being connected to Live services will allow you to have the full experience that you can expect from Windows Phone 7.

Please go ahead and try it out and let the dev know if there are any problems with it.

Glimpse Notifications: Easier Lockscreen Notifications

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
