The ChevronWP7 Windows Phone 7 unlocking team have announced a new, low cost way for developers to unlock devices in an attempt to remove one of the barriers to entry for independent devs.
Impressed with how Microsoft dealt with the Chevron WP7 (Windows Phone 7 jailbreak/unlock) team, Geohot updated his site today with a small message that read: “perhaps a more appropriate way to deal with jailbreakers I'm going out to buy a Windows 7 phone”.
The first user-friendly Windows Phone 7 jailbreak has been released. Its called ChevronWP7 and it has been developed by well known and respected Microsoft community enthusiasts Rafael Rivera, Long Zheng and Chris Walsh.
Just a couple of days ago, we posted the news that developer Chris Walshie from Australia was successful in getting root access to Windows Phone 7. Today, he tweeted to inform us all that he now has registry and file-system access as well!
