Good news for those of you with Windows Phone 7 devices who don’t like to play by the rules: a team by the name of ChevronWP7 has released a program that will unlock a Windows Phone 7 device to allow a user to install applications outside of the Marketplace that may not be approved by Microsoft.  The tool is extremely simple to use and is completely reversible should the need arise.  Got a Windows Phone 7 device and feel like hacking?

Windows Phone 7 unlocker released

Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community – the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account.

Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.

We’ve taken the pain out of the process involved and put together a super simple executable that will allow anyone to unlock any WP7 device on the market using a USB cable and just a couple clicks.

This tool is completely safe and reversible for the phone. (The app even allows you to relock the phone.)
