Nuclear Elephant writes "With Verizon's release of the Motorola E815, an improved and EVDO-capable version of the former v710, many v710 enthusiasts have started hacking at it to see what it can do. Surprisingly, many of the hacks which previously did not work on the v710 (such as those from the failed OBEX Hacking Contest) now suddenly do work on the E815, and other hacks which did work on the v710 still work. Among new hacks include the ability to activate OBEX (Object Exchange) for transferring pictures and music to/from the handset via Bluetooth, activating the disabled DUN (Dialup Networking) profile which was previously available on its predecessor, and modding the web browser to allow using any homepage and proxy. One cool existing hack involves the ability to use an alternative PIX messaging gateway to send multimedia, made possible by the reverse engineering of the MMS protocol used. A complete list of modifications can be found here. An unofficial challenge to enable OPP (Object Push Profile) is underway with a prize of $500. Unlike the v710, the Motorola E815 was Bluetooth qualified for both OPP and OBEX."
