Not trying to stir up false hope or get everyone excited, but I came across this video link to YouTube on xda showing a possible root/jailbreak for our phone. Its in Vietnamese, so I can't make anything out. Has anyone seen this or can anyone translate so we can check the validity of this??
yes to all the below comments except installing cracked apps. I wouldn't condone that. If you do so, be smart enough not to advertise it. Even though great achievements have been made it making roms better for our phones, there is always room for improvement or added features. I was ALWAYS updating my Android phone, not because it needed it, but there was always something being developed that made it perform better than before or completely added new flair to the device. Another benefit is side loading apps, meaning you can try out new apps from developers without having to get the apps from the market; which means you don't have to wait for MS approval to try something on your phone.
The title has "Jailbreak" in the name, so it must be some sort of jailbreak method using the WP program on a W7 computer. Also the boot loader was different than what I see. It wasn't affiliated with any carrier (the boot loader, I mean), so that's interesting.
The video that you have pasted is nothing but developer unlocking windows phone and side loading apps
and he's using windows 8 though he has a start button there are many ways by you can get a start button on windows 8 by editing reg
