First Windows Phone 7 jailbreak tool released

Microsoft’s fledgling mobile operating system, Windows Phone 7, managed to be live for little over a month before somebody released a jailbreak tool for the OS. Three men have just done that, as Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh and Long Zheng put out the ChevronWP7 yesterday, an executable file that allows users to sideload apps to a Windows Phone 7 phone – making it possible to install software on the devices without going through Microsoft’s official Windows Marketplace.
