After successfully porting Microsoft’s latest mobile platform to HTC HD2 allowing it to run from NAND, we now live to see the first Windows Phone 7 cooked ROMs emerge and they’re for the Leo.
First one is called HD2 1.00.00.WP7 and is OS version 7.0.7004.0 with OEM version 2250.09.07401.605, advertised as having the Live Services Activated (!) and also being ChevronWP7 unlocked. The second one is Moon light HD2 Rom and contains the same version numbers, 576 MB RAM-enabled as well as ChevronWP7 unlocked with some added performance tweaks and hacks to emulate a legit HTC HD7.
This should definitely raise some legal, copyright related issues (both for the OS as well as the Live services) and we are curious to see what Microsoft’s policy will be related to custom Windows Phone 7 ROMs. In the past, custom Windows Phone/Mobile ROMs were “somewhat ignored” and Redmond slightly looked the other way; will this change with the new platform?
