Windows Phone 7 Jailbreak First Step [Video]

Yesterday we reported about the Australian developer, Chris Walshie who is working hard to develop a way to jailbreak WP7 as well as he was successfully able to prove a method to run “native unmanaged code” on a retail Windows Phone 7 device. Let’s check out this in action.

I’ll be posting the code in a couple of days, need to clean it all up. And yes, it’s a managed app running unmanaged code 🙂

You’ve got FULL access, create, delete, browse files etc. Just can’t delete system ROM files, IE coredll.dll (obviously).

I would imagine that we’ll see the new third-party jailbreak store apps very soon, as the developers won’t find the complexities such as those on iOS Jailbreak. What do you think? [via Walshie]
