- Port existing homebrew apps/features/hacks to Nokia Lumia 800.
- Create new Nokia Lumia specific homebrew apps/features/hacks.
- Anything else that you can convince me makes sense.
Respond to this forum post with the following information:
- What will you use the Nokia Lumia 800 for? (see the aforementioned list of goals)
- Up to 3 links (+ explanation) showing that you have the previous experience required to meet your development goal.
- Anything else you think will help you get one of the Lumia 800 phones.
Wow, nice initiative! Here's my two cents.
1) I would use the Nokia Lumia 800 for further development with WindowsPhoneHacker, not only including development of our current homebrew applications, but serious research on native code, interop, and exploits (we've got some processes in queue, trust me)
2) Some of my work (I'm sure most of you are well aware of what I've been up to): http://windowsphonehacker.com/articl...lease-12-12-11
and most everything else on the WPH site.
We're currently in the process of doing something I can't really talk about, but it involves interop, and freedom, and the suffix "break", and in order to expand this research to all OEMs and users, we would need to add Nokia to that portfolio
3) I believe in freedom. I understand Microsoft's security and limitations, and it makes sense for the end user. But I believe all WP users should have a choice on what they want for their device, whether it be a homebrew application, or a method of unlocking the phone to it's full potential. That's the goal in mind, and I ensure you I'll have some seriously neat stuff to share in the near future, and with a Nokia device, we'll have one more OEM we can get it ported to.
Edit: Thought I'd throw this in there: I'm a student, and thus my ability to purchase new phones is fairly limited. Everything I do is volunteer and free, for the good of the community.
Here's the project I mentioned but wasn't ready to disclose yet. I'm working on Nokia specifically, because it seems like the easiest to crack open if I can get around the whitelist. My major goal, if I get a device, would be to get this working, along with interop, and then see about registry/file system access. It's a start
