We posted yesterday about the lucky few Nokia Lumia 710 and 800 handsets shipping with an unlocked Qualcomm bootloader, meaning those owners can easily flash custom interop unlocked ROMs which will basically let them go to town with homebrew software.
Now G-gabber on XDA-Developers have found a signed unlocked Qualcomm ROM for the Nokia Lumia 710, meaning Nokiaâ€™s official Nokia Connection Suite can be used to easily downgrade any Nokia Lumia 710 to an unlocked bootloader, at which point of course the device is wide open for custom ROMs.
The bootloader will unfortunately not work for Nokia Lumia 800 handsets, as the signature is specific to the Nokia Lumia 710.
