Windows Phone 7 Registry And File System Access Conquered

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.
