Because its still a mess here at the wp8 Hack&Dev Forums I will dedicate this thread for Clearing what is already capable with our wp8 phones and what is still a "in Progress"
- Dev unlock:
- Interop unlock:
- Modded boot loader:
- UEFI Hacking:
- Custom Rom:
- Full Unlock:
- You can make an dev account at MS.
- [XAP][GUIDE] Interop Unlock for WP8 + all Capabilities
It's currently limited to SAMSUNG phones
At this point, you will be able to sideload any capability, even the ones used for built-in apps and services
However, there appear to still be restrictions, even with a capability such as ID_CAP_BUILTIN_TCB. Heathcliff74 and GoodDayToDie are working to overcome these restrictions
This list is *just* the ones from Interop-unlock; it does not unclude the ones from EnableAllSideloading
- Modded Boot loader (I mean Retail) isn't there yet for real wp8 phones.
A NON public bootloader/magldr/UEFI is made by Cotulla for the HD2.
- UEFI Hacking/Extracting is a work in progress ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-8x/development/htc-8x-wp8-gdr2-uefi-extracted-cab-t2843827 )
- Custom rom is there for only 1 phone and that is the Huawei W1
this is in REALLY beta state and not public
- Flashing isn't a work in progress because there isn't a real need for it as of now
- Full Unlock is in early progress but non public
