WPWorld.pl reports the that the Huawei Ascend W1 has become the first Windows Phone 8 handset to be bootloader unlocked, allowing hackers to load custom ROMs with unique features.
Apparently one of the first Custom ROMs for the handset features the ability to use a Static IP, which is useful for some users, and the ability to load maps on the memory card, a feature that is already supported by Nokia’s mapping apps.
Of course with an unlocked boatloader the sky it literally the limit, and given that Windows Phone 8 shares the same codebase as Windows RT I think Huawei Ascend W1 users can expect a rather crazy hacking scene in short order.
