The dump will be online soon, special thanks to the members who helped me get the dump! Without the help of them I wouldn't have do this.

I wanna thank these guys and to all who have posted here..
biktor_gj
Jaxbot
E:V:A
Cotulla
and especially rob243 who will host the dump for the developers to download.

I hope Windows Phone users will benefit to this!

Please check back here in a few days for the dump.

Meanwhile, the engineering HTC 8X loaner device will have to go back to the company soon, too. I would appreciate a little donation from the generous ones out there. Buy me a pizza? Buy me my own 8X? Just hit the donate to me button on the left under my username, or here.

Thanks all!

Lucky you, check the hspl/spl to see if it's locked or unlocked. If unlocked, contact the user, I mean The Living Legend called COTULLA and tell him about your phone. Actually, just contact him, he will tell you to do a few things and if someone can help in here, it's him. We owe him the HSPL for HTC WP7 1st and 2nd generation phones and the 1st Titan custom rom (DFT) among other things.
Thanks for sharing!

By the way, I am not sure if it's right to tap the Enter Bootloader button, I'm scared! LMAO

I do, that's why I created this thread so I can help somehow, even by a bit.

EDIT: I found a setting that lets me developer lock/unlock the device (even without registration). If you want me to test or run apps that will help you guys let me know.

EDIT 2: I tried tapping the Enter Bootloader option but it does nothing. Maybe I am doing it wrong?

You can try holding down Vol Up, camera, and power, or Vol Down, camera, and power to get to the bootloader.
Is there a way to access the file system?
