HTC Mozart 7 Downgrade and Flashing Tutorial
Windows Phone 7 development has been slowly, but steadily, increasing as the platform gains popular. Developers and users alike are finding new ways of adding all sorts of fun things to their phones, and development in general has brought a more open experience to users. This can be said especially for the HTC 7 Mozart, which has had more development than the average Windows Phone, not counting the truly legendary HD2.
Things only get better for Mozart owners, as XDA Recognized Developer Nullstring has brought some awesome and diverse development to the device. A few hardware modifications, downgrading to a different firmware so you can flash custom ROMs, and tricking the Marketplace are all featured in what can only be described as a true all-in-one Mozart modification thread. To begin, Nullstring posts a video that details how Mozart users can downgrade their SPL from 5.xx to 1.xx, which will allow them to flash custom ROMs.
As if that weren’t enough, Nullstring then gives users a diagram to create a Y-Cable along with all the parts and estimated hardware costs and complete with screen shots so users can use a Gold Card. Then, to cap it all off, Nullstring made a 29 minute video that takes everyone through the whole process of downgrading, creating the gold card, flashing a ROM, and making the Mozart everything it can and should be. The thread and video are just that full of win.
For additional info, screen shots, videos, download links, and pretty much anything else you could possibly need for your Mozart, check out the development thread.
