Microsoft Windows Phone 7 has been launched few days back. The attempts to Jailbreak Windows Phone 7 Operating System has started and its inevitable. An Australian developer Chris Walshie was successful to run native” unmanaged code on a retail Windows Phone 7 device.
This was all started by a user “hounsell” on xda-developers.com. The user observed that a thord part app in Windows Phone 7 market place used “native” code, not Silverlight-managed code as all non-Microsoft apps should.
Getting more deep inside it, the user noticed some interesting facts of the app that gave it its native capabilities -most notably a DLL called “Microsoft.Phone.InteropServices”, which if poked the right way provided COM access.
Even though this breakthrough pretty much provides root access to the core of the Windows CE-based system including registry and file system necessary for future jailbroken applications, the last and major piece of the jailbreaking puzzle remains – sideloading an application on a common non-developer device, since such an app would never make it through marketplace certification.
