Creating a live tile should be totally possible; we already know the API for that. Doing it in a way that won't wreck the battery life will take careful work, but is surely possible.

What I'm excited about here is a persistent background service that isn't subject to the app model restrictions. This can be used for things like automatically muting the phone in meetings (with exact timing, not the loose timing that the current background APIs give). It can also be used for things like making openVPN (a current project of mine) work on stock ROMs, which would otherwise be very difficult (technically possible if I can get the driver to load on a stock ROM, but a mess of hacks even then).

On Custom ROMs with Full Unlock it was already possible to run homebrew executables. For stock ROMs with Interop Unlock there is WP7 Root Tools which allows Policy Unlock for Silverlight applications. But running homebrew executables like Opera Mini was still not possible.

But now I've found a way to unlock homebrew executables using policies and certificates. I need to do more research before I can implement this unlock in WP7 Root Tools, because the unlock currently still needs some manual actions. But I know it's possible now, because I have it working.

I will keep you updated on the progress for implementing this in WP7 Root Tools.

I have to thank Cotulla for helping me find a stupid mistake I made! His incredible knowledge helped me see why I thought it was not working yet

There's no way to predict an ETA. Depends on how much time I can spend on it. Currently working on a managed abstraction layer for the policy engine, so I can integrate my new unlocks in WP7Root Tools. Making a little progress everyday. Just bear with me.

Not yet. He will let us know when. It will be a new version of root tools. Please bear with him as this takes some time for him to implement it in a clean manner

If I understand, with this project, we could execute homebrew without using the Interop Hack, is'nt it ?

@Nixeus: Not really. This will require making changes to the OS configuration that can only be made with high privilege access. Aside from custom ROMs with full-unlock (which can already run homebrew EXEs), the only ways to get this access on the phone currently all require interop-unlock. For example, WP7 Root Tools requires ID_CAP_INTEROPSERVICES so your phoen must be interop-unlocked to install it.

I would like to re-create or port a little C/C++ application whick i have wrote for Wm6.5.

My Application used the RAS function in order to manage the DATA connection.

Can i do it ?
If yes, with com-interop ? or, is there today a easiest way ?

Is there a guide ?

Thanks a lot ,

The best (in general) way today is to write a silverlight app with native COM libraries inside. Follow this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1299134
