Australian developer Chris Walsh recently found a method to run so-called native code on the platform indicating that jailbreaking Windows Phone 7 could be possible, though it's a first step in a huge process.

Same developer seems to have conquered another OS tower as he now tweeted that he's got registry and file system access. The tweet also mentions that this was achieved on Samsung and HTC devices and the developer is committed to getting that on LG handsets too. Are these hacks device dependent? Normally they shouldn't be but, as with the case of USB tethering on the Samsung Focus and the LG Optimus 7, there might be device-specific bits to crack.

hopefully custom ringtones are just a few days away too! :rolleyes:

i honestly believe it is in microsoft's best interest to let the hacking community get involved. they can implement fixes/enhancements way faster than microsoft or google or apple :huh:

plus, there are a ton of items that need to be addressed in WP7. i love my HTC HD7 but no custom ringers, no ability to add manual wifi networks, very limited sleep options, hardly any sound/volume options notifications, etc.

again ,not bad for a version 1.0 of a mobile os but let the hackers get on those problems :huh:

7 days after the heralded launch of Microsoft's smartphone, no one really knows about Windows Phone 7 product sales. Each business that makes smartphones makes it a point to tell the world how its latest gadget has taken the industry by storm, yet Microsoft continues to be cryptically silent. A dearth of publicity about the impact of Windows Phone 7 on smartphone product sales has tech pundits assuming that Microsoft's latest entry into the sector has fallen flat.

It's more than seven days it was released in UK long before the US.
There have been quite a bit of tv advertisments here and in the US.
As for tech pundits, it's been a big hit with some around the globe stating WP7 is better than both Android and iOS so not sure where you are getting your information from as it does seem a bit far from what the general media etc appear to be reporting.
