New Jailbreak in line for Windows Phone 7

After the Chevron team officially joined hands with Microsoft, its only obvious to wonder to what extent they will support the core Homebrew community. Will they allow anyone with a Windows Phone to be allowed Development free of cost? A lot of doubts still remain unanswered.

Meanwhile another Developer who was famous for his TouchXperience mod has released details about his upcoming tool that uses a different method to “JailBreak” your Windows Phone 7.

This tool as seen in the above screenshot, will allow you to Developer unlock your Windows Phone 7 permanently! (unlike Chevrons temporary unlock) This means you can sideload Homebrew applications, Debug your Windows Phone 7 Application right on the actual device, use Mass Storage Mode, etc.

The developer will not be releasing this tool before the next WP7 update for obvious reasons. Once the Official WP7 update is released he will launch this tool. So all you Developers out there won’t lose out on the the unlock and still be able to enjoy the updated features of Windows Phone 7.

Read the Official announcement of the new Jailbreak after the break!

Windows Phone Device Manager allows you to manage your Windows Phone 7 device from your PC, you can simply¬†view, install and uninstall “sideloaded” applications, explore device, transfer and sync files,… It is compatible with all¬†Windows Phone 7 devices.

Windows Phone Device Manager detects when the phone is connected or disconnected, if you don’t have a registered developer device it can automatically unlock your phone, so you don’t need ChevronWP7 anymore.

You can also connect to your phone via Wi-Fi, for example to transfer files from/to your phone using Windows Phone Device Manager or the provided Windows Phone application.

If Windows Phone Device Manager becomes popular I think about creating an open marketplace for non-commercial applications. Developers are welcome to join the project!

A first version will be released in the next few days.
