New Jailbreak for Windows Phone 7 Imminent
In the world of smartphones its an ongoing war between handset maker and hacker, the hacker jailbreaking a device and the maker blocking that jailbreak, and Windows Phone 7 is now part of that war after they blocked the ChevronWP7 jailbreak, but as usual there’s always another on its way.
According to an article over on Redmond Pie, the guys over at Winrumors received an email from Windows Phone developer Julien Schapman, which stated that he intends to release a new WP7 Device Manager that includes a new jailbreak.
Here what Schapman wrote in the email…“My unlock method is similar to that of ChevronWP7 in the way they both use a fake registration server, but my method is different and more reliable. For example it automatically detects when a WP7 is plugged in and will check if this is a registered developer phone, if not it will register it once and for all, so the device will never re-lock like with ChevronWP7.”
The developer obviously isn’t revealing too much about the new jailbreak app because he doesn’t want to risk Microsoft coming up with a fix in their upcoming Windows Phone 7 update so is holding off releasing the new jailbreak until after Microsoft release their OS update in February.
So there you have it a new Windows Phone 7 jailbreak tool waiting in the wings for Microsoft to release their new update, any of our WP7 toting readers going to try out the new jailbreak once it becomes available?
