While, Microsoft is working to fix the first jailbreak for its Windows Phone 7 phone, another jailbreak is on the way. Developer Julien Schapman revealed his plans to release a “Device Manager” for Windows phone 7 that will help user to make changes to their WP7 by doing things like side-load applications, explorer the phone’s file system, manage application and can add custom ringtones.
Schapman said the software would be released after Microsoft releases its first software update, and it is expected to happen during next month, so as to keep Microsoft from closing the loophole which is being used for the unlock purpose. Schapman also said that his solution has helped Microsoft’s built-in security measures, which would call home asking to verify the software and re-lock the software if it found any differences. This check will occur after every two weeks, forcing users to re-run the unlocking software each time it happened.
If launched, then this would be the second jailbreaking tool to be made available for the Windows phone 7.
