As reported by Engadget, ChevronWP7 is set to become the first firm to offer jailbreak and homebrew services for the Windows Phone platform, with Microsoft’s official approval.
Announced today, the team at ChevronWP7 state that they will soon be requesting a small fee via PayPal, from those looking to jailbreak their Windows Phone devices.
As announced on the Windows Phone Dev Podcast, we will soon be launching an approved Windows Phone unlocking service as part of ChevronWP7 Labs. This will be available to developers across all skill levels and all regions.
The service will require a small fee — currently via PayPal — to offset costs but we assure you it will be more affordable than the App Hub. Those who wish to write and immediately publish apps are recommended to sign up to the App Hub instead.
We’re excited to be making this service available to users with the support of the Windows Phone team.
Today’s public announcement of the service, which again has already received official approval from the Redmond, Washington company, is thought to have left companies such as Apple and Sony with less geek-cred than those who have to ask what MMORPG stands for.
