I was able to deploy it, but it asked for wp7 tools??

Statement: Informations relating jailbreak is now not ready to be released. According to the POANDSOUL team, the jailbreak is still in progress now, while there are a lot of work not done yet. They have invited a small number of users and developers to their close test. And we are sorry that this stage is still not suitable for the public beta. As a news media, Silen Tech has already tried everything we can to report, but the release of a tutorial without proper jailbreak tools is surely out of the question. Therefore, please be patient until the release of jailbreak by the POANDSOUL team.

I don't think there will ever be a software "jailbreak" for Lumias.
There might be a hardware-solution, but just unlocking with usb is way more difficult.

I wonder if it would be possible to replace the SoC and get unblown fuses. Apparently they can be ordered pretty cheap from china.

I opened up a thread in ATF support forum here:
and if i may quote product-supporter X-Shadow:

So, i don't think the "JTAG-hack" can only be applied to engineering phones without that blown fuse...
There's still hope.

If they only would release their stuff, i could try the jtag hack with my lumia 920 and my atf box.
Would be fun

I believe there's a pad of a resistor near the chip that needs to either be pulled to ground during reset, or pulled high after reset.
