DFT team, popularly known for custom Freedom ROM for various HTC devices has done it again. We’re witnessing some ground breaking development in Windows Phone community. Yesterday, we covered a news on Cydia like desktop client for Windows Phone (known as MetroPack), now we have some more good news for our readers.
DFT (Dark Force Team) have finally decided to bring native development to Windows Phone. There are plenty of homebrew application available for Windows phone, but none of them are able to see underlying files and working of the system. The whole idea revolves around “FullUnlock” concept. We all are aware of DevUnlock, which lets you download and install/deploy XAP files onto Windows Phone, but it doesn’t give more privilege. DFT replaces LVMOD.DLL and POLICYENGINE.DLL to remove checksum, certificate and object access checking to give you sneak peak of subsystem.
According to DFT, FullUnlock can be achieved using flashing custom ROM to the device at this moment, but they will try to find out an alternative way to achieve this (without flashing). DFT 7720 Custom ROMs supports FullUnlock, but it is not working as they expected it to be.
FullUnlock or so called native development project will allow you to run EXE file and do some related operation on the system. However, you should not expect Windows Mobile 6.5 application to run on Windows Phone as there are lots of different APIs needed for it to work properly. He has also shown off the progress he has achieved so far.Tags: dft, fullunlock
