Folks over at XDA-Developers have dumped the Windows Phone 7 ROM Build 188.8.131.5277 off the PC Emulator software, which was released with dev tools at MIX10 yesterday. This marks the beginning of a long journey for XDA-devs to port this next-gen OS from Microsoft to the current-gen of Windows phone devices.
Since this dump doesn’t come off an actual “real” Windows Phone 7 Series device, it will be very hard, if not impossible to make a custom ROM out of it as it is meant for x86 CPU, not ARM based devices. XDA-Developers have surprised us in the past by releasing amazing stuff like dual booting Android and Windows Mobile on a Windows phone, so I wont rule them out for this one just yet.
