I figured out how to access the SD Card as an External without removing it. Hopefully, within the next couple of days I can copy all the files and I'll put them up for everyone to use.
If someone wants to do it since I'm working the next couple of days,
1. open regeditor
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetEnumUSB
3. Find ZuneDriver: should yield HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetEnumUSBVI D_045E&PID_04EC&MI_006&27ffd631&0&0000DeviceParame tersWUDF
4. Go up one level to Device Parameters key
5. Change "ShowInShell" from 0 to 1
6. Change "PortableDeviceNameSpaceExcludeFromShell" from 1 to 0
7. Change "EnableLegacySupport" from 0 to 1
8. Change "EnableDefaultAutoPlaySupport" should be from 0 to 1. I dont remember. If its already at 1 change it to 0. If it says true or false change it to the other.
When you connect it it should brnig up the little window asking how you want to view the files.
If this yeilds all the files, then we should be able to reuse the dell certs to avoid corruptions or bricking.
Edit: Did it this morning but something is missing. It did prevent zune from opening, which is a start but it didnt allow access to the sd card. I'll be looking a little deeper tonight.
Did any other WP7 device allow you to officially unlock their bootloaders?
Dell devices in general arnt locked at all to begin with, the only exception is the VP as every other device runs android and it's not a requirement to license android.
But are they legally allowed to fulfill that request for WP7?
It shouldn't be that the files are locked, per se as, it should be the certs preventing access. There should be a whitelist cert present preventing changes.
