Well, many frayed nerves and hours hunched over one of the most popular Windows phones has finally paid off: The "unlocker" which we mentioned a few days ago has been completed, meaning users can now install custom ROMs to their beloved Touch Pro 2s, specifically Verizon, Sprint, U.S. Cellular and all other CDMA versions.

At least for Sprint, it sure beats waiting till "early 2010", eh?

Having this tool now, all the custom ROMs which are literally waiting in the wings (e.g. Energy, Mighty, CFay, Juicy, etc.) can be installed -- this includes WM6.5 and WM6.5.1 builds with all that custom goodness from your favorite 'Chefs'.

A big congrats to everyone for this achievement (donations are in order) and now if you pardon us, we're off for some ROM flashing ourselves! ...
