Windows phone 7 on HTC HD2 runs into cloud services snag

Famous ROM hacker Cotulla has announced on Twitter that the Windows phone 7 hack for the HTC HD2 is close to release, but it might not matter much.

He notes that "GSM, GPRS, Camera, GSensor, USB, SD, BT, WLAN, etc"  were working, but that, due to Microsoft’s hardware locking of the OS to the motherboard, none of the cloud services, like Zune, marketplace and Xbox Live was working.

Calling it mostly a demo, he notes "It will be released soon, but don’t expect anything from it – without Live services it’s not really usable :-(".

It seems to get a fully functioning port much more than a leaked ROM image will be needed, but more likely a fully functioning low level jailbreak.
