Windows Phone 7 hacking attempt progresses: Update–now with video


Chris Walshie has continued with his attempts to hack Windows Phone 7 and gain low level access to the OS.  Since gaining the ability to run native apps, his latest achievement is is now registry access on LG and HTC devices, and also file system access.

Whatever one thinks of jailbreaking on Windows Phone 7, given that it is easier to break than build something, it is inevitable that eventually hackers will have the free run of the OS. The real question is what Microsoft’s response to this will be.
