As noted by enthusiast blog istartedsomething, Windows Phone 7 is on the verge of being jailbroken. In fact, hackers have already gained root access Windows Phone 7′s registry and file system — their methods simply aren’t yet bundled up in a nice little user-friendly package. “Jailbreaking” or “rooting” is a process that will allow users to install applications that have not been approved by Microsoft. It will also allow developers to build applications that utilize functions of the OS that are not accessible using standard developers tools. As it did with the iPhone, a Windows Phone 7 jailbreak will open up a whole new realm of possibilities for apps and customizations that would otherwise be unavailable to end users.
