Some tools have recently been released which made it very easy to root Lumia handsets. WindowsMania.pl has been one of the first to take advantage of this new access by releasing a Custom Rom for a Lumia handset, in this case the Lumia 625.
The ROM brings the handset to WP8.1 GDR2 and offers the following feature:
First custom ROM made for Lumia in this case for 625,
- 3rd party apps removed
- Polish dictionary and speech included
- Interop unlocked out of the box, and remained unlocked after factory reset and upgrading to Windows 10 Mobile
- Accent color changed
- Few minor cosmetic changes
The new access should mean no devices need be left behind even if Microsoft no longer supports them (such as the Lumia 530 for example).
The ROM can be found at WindowsMania.pl here.
