By looking dft i8700 on google, I can see some oriental sites talking about that.
Is it available?

No, only HTC phones are capable of being fully unlocked for custom ROMs at the moment.
Unless something changed today!?

Cotulla, a member of DFT, does have a Samsung Focus which he has hacked..

Installation procedure will consist from two phases:
1)install MAGLDR via DMLI
2)use MAGLDR and DWPI to flash custom ROMs (like on LEO)

This was done to provide custom rom flashing as safe as possible (to prevent bricks or minimize their count ).


The first release will contains support only for Focus 2K REV1.3.
The next releases may add support for Focus 4K REV1.4 and Omnia 7 too.

No time frame on when they will be available.

News about Cotulla

Cotulla is looking for a few brave people who want to test magldr on focus 1.4 ( 4K)

so please sent me a pm if you have a focus 1.4 (4K ) , Cotulla ONLY need the 1.4 because all tests for omnia7 and focus 1.3 are already done.

the faster he has some testers the faster it will be released :D

so come one with the pm's :D

Greetings Cees Heim

- Tester here -
Omnia 7 works with no problem at all.
You have something really big looking forward to :)

Can you please post thread with instructions ?
Is this the correct sw ? http://www.addictivetips.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/DFT_LEO_MAGLDR113_DAF.rar
Can't we use "WP7 Downloader for Publish" as I did here ? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=20211560&postcount=18
Does that mean that android can be pushed into omnia7 to play-a-bit ?

I am not 100% sure but I think the dft flasher you posted is a hd2 flasher. If my poor knowledge about rom fleshing is suficient I would say thats not gonna work.

^yep, he's right, it's not available yet.

On a side note, I can't wait to be able to use the Opera Mini browser :D (IE is great but I need Opera for connecting to Uni WiFi. IE doesn't agree with it!)

What's the 'big thing' to look forward too? Ie: what benefits will this custom ROM give us over a normal OEM ROM? The OEM ROMs can also be unlocked etc.

So besides a possible unlocked device with the custom ROM, what other benefits will there be?

I don't have privileges posting anything more than reporting this progress.
- Cotulla has ownership (DFT)

WP7 Downloader can be used, but it is easier to flash a modified "OS.D000FF" (+CSC) (then software reset)

Android could be able to run on Omnia 7, due running ARM processor.

Heard about Freedom ROM?
You can execute everything and flash whatever mod to WP7 you want.
How about non-MS exe's like Opera?
- There is way to many benefits.

quick question about samsung Focus: will it be able to run Android? or it depends on ARM cpu?
