WP7 Update Fixes Coding Error That Allows Unlocking

The ChevronWP7 team — the one behind the Windows Phone 7 unlockerhas pulled the jailbreaking application around the time discussions with Microsoft have been made public.

With the upcoming meeting between the team and Redmond, Microsoft seems to have informed to ChevronWP7 staff that the upcoming Windows Phone 7 update will fix the coding error that the unlocker used in order to jailbreak devices. The change log for the first update did not include this fix and we wonder what other features and fixes are missing from the enumeration. Nevertheless, even with the jailbreaking app being pulled, many users have continued to use it from various other sources it’s been mirrored to but the devices will likely be unlocked for another couple of weeks now.

On the other hand, the ChevronWP7 team is committed to support the importance of homebrew and the community at the same time understanding the importance of developer intellectual property. Anyways, developers never sleep so they say and there’s already a Device Manager application in the works that is advertised to offer unlocking for Windows Phone 7 smartphones; if this is using the same code error the ChevronWP7 solution did, it will stop working too but, as proven so many times before, it’s just a matter of time until someone cracks it open again. Now, give us the update already!
