HD7 gets first custom ROM

We reported a few days ago that the Dark Forces Team completed work on their HSPL tools, effectively allowing the creation of custom ROMs for 1st generation HTC Windows Phones.

The first ROM comes from ansar.ath.gr over at XDA, who's a pretty popular contributor over there. Now, like we speculated, there's not too much at this point that can be done with custom Windows Phone ROMs and this one affirms that. Still, it has some nice features:

  • ChevronWP7 unlock
  • MangoB2 update to 7403 and 7712
  • Stock ROM HTC_Europe_1.69.401.01_Radio_5.54.09.21_22.33b.50. 10U

Some sites are reporting that this carrier unlocks the phone as well, but we're not seeing that mentioned anywhere (they might be confusing carrier unlocked with the Chevron registry unlocker for side loading). You can grab it now over at XDA, but we'd stay on the sidelines for a bit and watch what happens--after all, it's not like this is bringing any new radical abilities to the device. But hey, it's a start.

HD7 gets first custom ROM

Good Job guys, But I think I'll wait until Wireless/USB tethering is added before I flash the ROM on my HD7.
