Submission + - ChevronWP7, WP7 JailBreak Tool Discontinued (wmpoweruser.com)

suraj.sun writes: After discussion with Brandon Watson, Director of Developer Experience for Windows Phone 7, the ChevronWP7 team, who created a free Developer Unlocker, ChevronWP7 discussed less than 24 hours ago right here on Slashdot ( http://mobile.slashdot.org/story/10/11/30/1622244/Windows-7-Phone-Gets-Jailbreak-Tool ), have decided to pull their tool, effective immediately.

"Through this discussion, we established a mutual understanding of our intent to enable homebrew opportunities and to open the Windows Phone 7 platform for broader access to developers and users. To fast-track discussions, we are discontinuing the unlocking tool effective immediately."

The great news is that some official home brew is coming to Windows Phone 7. "To pursue these goals with Microsoft’s support, Brandon Watson has agreed to engage in further discussions with us about officially facilitating homebrew development on WP7. "
