ChevronWP 7 is the first app that gives you root access on Windows Phone 7. Though its tagline describes it as Windows Phone 7 Unlocker but basically it works just like any Jailbreak Tool on iPhone.
ChevronWP 7 unlocks the Widnwos Phone 7 and allows to side-load apps without being dependent on marketplace only. Currently this app is available for Windows PCs only.
Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community – the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account.
Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.
We’ve taken the pain out of the process involved and put together a super simple executable that will allow anyone to unlock any WP7 device on the market using a USB cable and just a couple clicks.
This tool is completely safe and reversible for the phone. (The app even allows you to relock the phone.)
The possible problems and their solutions associated with this first release of ChevronWP7 are:
- If you’re encountering a connection error (you don’t have the Windows Phone SDK installed), tryand restart your machine then try again
- Minimum supported OS: Windows XP SP2
- Please ensure your device has a “full sync” relationshipwith the Zune client, not a “guest” relationship
