Thankfully Microsoft didn't change anything in their 'protection' of the WP7 emulator image. Following the same steps as the previous build, I was able to unlock the new 'April Refresh' emulator image. It's largely the same but here's what I've noticed.
  • It seems a bit more buggy. I've noticed some odd screen drawing issues and even jaggy lines. Maybe it's my laptop?
  • Most apps seem slightly updated and more polished. A few quirks here and there.
  • Phone! Yup, you can see the dialer and it even fakes working.
  • Office is actually working. Looks like the apps shown in the videos they released.

v2... in my late night grogginess I missed the settings entries. This one should have all the settings unlocked now (including some new stuff that wasn't in the February build)
Unlocked Emulator bin v2 (multiupload) (fast mirror)

To launch it use the same process as before... "xde.exe WM70C1AprilUnlockedv2.bin"

Gizmodo posted a How to: Try Windows Phone 7 now. Although that was for the previous build, the same general steps apply. You'll just need to use the emulator bin above and the new Dev tools CTP - April Refresh. It will NOT work with the February release.


New long press menu?


The dialer, very basic


the 'call status' screen while in a call


Call log w/ active phone call

Thanks mate, that was what I was looking for... I was able to add a gmail account, but no sync occured. Althought, it seems it can sync contacts, mail & calendar alltogether.

Giving this a try just for fun =D.

I'm not getting any luck through the method that you mentioned to load up the BIN. Is there a way I can drop this file in a file, open up Visual Studio, and do an F5 to get the emulator going with the new image?

Replace the original one in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\WindowsPhone\v7.0\Emulation\Images\

I haven't tried with this one but you couldn't debug with the previous version. It will launch it though.

Cannot run the ROM!
Hey guys,
When I try to run the ROM, it hangs at the "Loading...." stage and doesn't go further at all.
Do you have any idea what I might be doing wrongly?
The first version of ROM works perfectly though.


Thank you in advance

It's not a ROM, if you're trying to flash it then don't.
