** MOD EDIT 2**
Take a look here for a detailed explanation of what this file is, and what we need to do to work with it.

** MOD EDIT **

This is obviously big news. Keep in mind this "ROM" is NOT flashable to any of the current devices we know of. NONE. You also can't dump this with the current tools we have at our disposal so, NO, we can not make WP7 ROMs based on this. Some great minds are already working on decrypting the format of this ROM and I'm sure information to that effect will be posted in the thread when that happens.

Until then, please refrain from asking if this is compatible with your phone (it's not!) or when it's going to be ported to "X" device. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation :)

Hey guys :)

This .nbh is unsigned, previous HTC NBH images were all signed. I made a new version of NBHImageTool to work with a WP7 unsigned .nbh, it will dump and rebuild.

Here's a mirror of the original posted NBH:
http://hotfile.com/dl/42956359/b56d7b8/mondimg_WP7.nbh.html

Here's the .nbh dump:

http://hotfile.com/dl/42937584/47038a1/Mondimg_WP7.rar.html

New! 5/18 Here is a link to all the raw partition data found inside the flash.store.bin (os.nb) - Note that I do not yet fully know the FAT, so the partitions marked UnknownData are more than likely part of the partition immediately following. Once I fully understand the FAT I will update with a proper list of partitions.

http://hotfile.com/dl/43557999/23bc8cb/Mondrian-raw-parts-and-dump.rar.html

Here's the dump of IMGFS, which contains most of the desirable data: (great thanks to l2tp with his help deciphering D000FF)

http://hotfile.com/dl/43241102/b6e5585/Mondrian_WP7_IMGFS_DUMP.rar.html

Note that the os.nb inside bears a D000FF header, which is different from a WM 6.x .nb, .nb0, or .bin.. it also has no FlashLayoutSector and IMGFS is compressed with XPH. So more than likely none of the existing tools will work to dump that yet. Now that i'm done with updating NBHImageTool i'll look more closely :)

ok... game is on.. now, where are all the super cooks to port it on HD2 ? :)

i would easily donate 100$ for a working WP7 Rom on HD2 :)

another interesting question, will Internet Services work ? since it not officially out, some services my still b unavailable etc ?

Thanks for giving a heads up, silentP, but just a note, what I posted was the CONTENTS of the .nbh, rather than a mirror of the .nbh itself. :) No one has yet posted a mirror of the .nbh, I can do that now.

Hello Bigboss
can u clarify more,is this the rom wm7 or wp7? Cingular don't exist I guess, so was this for an old unreleased HTC device? Just a guess, but pls throw some more light on that :)

Regarding Cingular, HTC often refers to AT&T as Cingular internally, even on WM6.5 devices. So that's not toooooo strange. :)

The build here is 6167 so this is not an old WM7 ROM. Again, HTC may be referring to WP7 as WM7 internally, sometimes MSFT calls it that internally as well :)

Hey guys :)

This .nbh is unsigned, I made a private build of NBHImageTool to work with unsigned .nbh, after I clean up the code a bit I'll update my thread with that. For now here's the .nbh dump:

http://hotfile.com/dl/42937584/47038a1/Mondimg_WP7.rar.html

Note that the os.nb inside bears a D000FF header, which is different from a WM 6.x .nb, .nb0, or .bin.. it also has no FlashLayoutSector and no IMGFS. So more than likely none of the existing tools will work to dump that yet. I'll get on the job after I update NBHImageTool :)

The tools have already been created, I don't think we can get them yet. I know tom and his team have them.

Can't wait to see what you come up with Da_G!!! Thanks again.

From what I understand tom & co were working with JTAG, rather than the bootloader, so likely would not have had to mess with decompiling the D000FF format. But if they did work with it any help would be appreciated :)

Cool. So what are the next steps guyz... I have no idea of cooking or porting, but just interested in knowing the process involved on a HIGH LEVEL in Layman language. Just so even ppl like us also understand what kind of time energy and dedication goes into chefs like you who are involved in getting this OS on our respective devices.

Atlease from what I have heard or saw (like in one of the Win Phone ads), the most probable of the existing devices out there for this OS is HD2. Again, I could be totally off with this, but just based on the SnapDragon, Capacitive, RAM and other specs of HD2 makes me think this might be the most compatible device for now.

Of course, the fact that I own one does not mean anything ;)
