Default Windows Phones (Lumia) Bootloader Unlocked

Third-party Windows Phone tool allows for custom ROMs

After several months of development, long term Windows Phone hacker ‘Heathcliff’ has released a new tool dubbed ‘Windows Phone Internals’. This new tool allows end users to unlock the bootloader of several Lumia devices in order to enable root access or even to create and flash custom ROMs.

Root Access allows you to load your own homebrew software onto the phone with high privileges. Apps can escape from their sandboxes. The tool can also create backup-images of the phone and access the file-system in Mass Storage mode. The tool supports most versions of Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile.

- Heathcliff


The tool, while primarily aimed at Windows Phone power users and enthusiasts, will also allow developers to get in on the fun. Included alongside the tool is an SDK, which makes it easy for homebrew developers to access the on-disk file system and registry.

Members of the XDA Developer forums are known for tinkering with Windows Phone, so with another tool at their disposal it will be interesting to see what people come up with this time around.

Those looking to learn more and download the tool can head over to WPInternals.

My opinion: **** yeah!

I been thinking to get Lumia phones since early this year, this makes it more appealing to me.

EDIT: I downloaded the program, this are the list of phones supported to unlock:

-Lumia 52x
-Lumia 62x
-Lumia 720
-Lumia 820
-Lumia 920
-Lumia 925
-Lumia 928
-Lumia 1020
-Lumia 1320

And for root, it depends on OS firmware. Not a very big list of supported phones, and none of the new ones too. Bugger. I'll give it time, it'll support new phones hopefully.
