Microsoft Serious About Homebrew Support

January 23, 2011 No Comments

In the last couple of days, Microsoft has met with the ChevronWP7 team. They have been discussing the short and long term goals for homebrew support on the Windows Phone.

With that in mind, we will work with Microsoft towards long-term solutions that support mutual goals of broadening access to the platform while protecting intellectual property and ensuring platform security.

In the meantime, a forthcoming Windows Phone 7 update will fix a bug that the ChevronWP7 unlocker tool took advantage of; the tool will cease to work thereafter.

To fill this short-term gap, we’re collaborating with Microsoft on an interim solution that will continue to support homebrew developments after the update. We will share details of this when it has been finalized.

This is great news and I hope both parties can keep on working together. It would be a very forward thinking maneuver by Microsoft to find a middle ground on this issue. I think so much time and money is wasted by bigger companies fighting the homebrew community. Maybe this time things will be different…
