  1. Three developers have released a new tool named ChevronWP7, which allows you to unlock any retail Windows Phone 7 device for application side-loading without having to pay $99 per year for a WP7 marketplace account. Long Zheng, Rafael Rivera, and Chris Walsh created the tool in order to give both developers and users broader access to their WP7 devices.

  2. $99 a year to have the "privilege" of accessing WP7 market place? who the F#&% are you kidding M$? Just when I thought I might pick one of these up...although I can always jail break it. Until It has more jailbroken apps, I'm going to stick with my 4yr/old BB pearl.
  3. Pretty sure the $99/year only applies to the developer. More specifically "a developer can release his first 5 applications for free in the Marketplace before he is charged $99/year for developer license, then then developer can update version of their application as many times as they want."

  4. Relax. The $99/year only applies to the developer. More specifically "a developer can release his first 5 applications for free in the Marketplace before he is charged $99/year for developer license, then then developer can update version of their application as many times as they want."

    MS is no going to be happy about this...

    Jail breaking WP7 in such a short time, hackers/developers are really getting fast.
  6. This link (Mirror 2) installed clickpotato on my system. It is not what it claims to be it is an adware file. Thanks guys.

    Thank goodness they are. That's what makes good products great products.

    I wonder how long it will take before the Kinect works with WP7 and Android? :)
