Custom Windows Phone Tango ROM released for Lumia 800

Lumia 800

RainbowMod? Sounds familiar, right? We previously covered a custom ROM for the Lumia 710 sharing an identical name, and now it's out for the Lumia 800. Built on Windows Phone "Tango" (7.10.8773.98) and based on Chinese firmware, RainbowMod is shipped with both English (US) and Russian languages.

It's required that the owner has configured the Qualcomm boot loader on their Lumia 800. So what's included in RainbowMod?

  • Full Unlock from UltraShot
  • Removed OEM applications (Nokia Drive, Maps, etc.)
  • Search key remapping
  • QuickLaunch menu for quick switching state of WiFi, 3G, Flight mode, Power save, etc.
  • Ability to access file system via WiFi/USB
  • Integrated Live ID, DppImplant no longer needed, but new key can also be banned
  • Orientation locker
  • Added multiple colour themes
  • Easy installation xap from browser or file manager
  • Unlocked Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts (limitation of Chinese firmware)
  • Added Google and Yandex search engines
  • xb0xmod cert for cab-updates
  • Cab-updatable
  • Lots of minor changes
  • Updatability via Zune (not guaranteed)

WP Central

It must be noted that the ROM creator does not own a Lumia 800, and thus this may well bust a cap in your Lumia's ass. Windows Phone Central takes no responsibility for any damage caused to your device. Proceed with caution and at your own risk. Head on over to the XDA thread for more information and support.

Custom Windows Phone Tango ROM released for Lumia 800

21 Comments

Im most decidedly not going to install any russion ROMs. God knows what kind of stuff they built in. I'm doing stuff like online-banking with the phone, so no thanks. Theoretically, they could clean out the bank account.

This is why I always look a bit into the ROM creator. I'm running mirolg's ROM on my Omnia because he seems like an awesome guy.

You 3 people make me laugh out loud with your paranoïd/racists thoughts...seriously how can you rely on a man just because you think he "might" be a good guy and not rely on another because he is russian...looool
Just two things to know...1- android os isn't protected at all...never trust them apps! 2- windows phone os is over protected...and rom chiefs (even russians lol again) can be contacted at xda...so you'll be able to learn from them how far can they be relied on...
 

To reduce the size of the download, thereby reducing server load. Esp. since they're available via the Marketplace.

Yeah that's the case, you can tell because the buttons aren't visible. The case does come with the phone but mine got discolored around the edges pretty quickly

I would be happy if I could actually unlock my Lumia's bootloader. I know it's way harder than I think it is, but the truth is it's just sad to see these ROM's and don't be able to use it

I'm not blasting the OS, I haven't tried it (nor will I).. but it bugs me to see people mess up the UI of WP7. If you're going to create custom icons, at least respect the ratio of the icon in white vs the tile!
The custom icons are just fugly!

Awsome but can you tell me that is there is any wp8 rom for lumia 800 or any idea how to use wp8 apps in lumia 800.....! Please Help Me out I need to Use WP8 Apps In Lumia 800....!
