HI guys,

Welcome to the first Windows Phone 7.8 BETA ROM. No this is not a scam it is the real thing. So, if you do not want to wait several months before Microsoft release it you should give it a try.

THINGS TO BE AWARE:

  1. . OS Version: 7.10.8835.35
  2. . ONLY FOR HTC HD7 (I will try to port it to other devices as soon as I have some free time)
  3. . Available languages: only English
  4. . You can now have the the new Windows Phone 8 Start Screen.
  5. . I did not test it properly, I was in a hurry to share with you guys. :fingers-crossed:
  6. . For sure, it is still a Microsoft Beta Build so some thing may not work, specially in none Nokia Devices.
  7. . The Rom was dumped from a Nokia device and is based on Tango 12180, because it won't boot if we use WP 7.8 kernel.dll and probably most 3d party apps from Marketplace might crash.
  8. . The Rom is almost untouched, this means it is not full unlocked or rooted and homebrew apps will not work (for now :D). It has only a few Deepshining customizations.
  9. . You can always flash back a WP7.5 Rom if you wish.

PLEASE dont flame if Rom is bugged or some things do not work. This is what I got now and I haven´t change it too much but it a start for future versions

virgin HD7

So, questions :)

Have a T-Mobile HD-7 (running it on Wind-Canada) and stuck at latest oem firmware (.8107), does the annoying no connection bug when wi-fi and 3G are both on bug, still exist? Its driving me nuts, i would flash just to get that fixed.
Other than backup, does one need to do anything before flashing this rom? My hd7 still a virgin, i haven't done anything to it other than OEM updates.
Thanks, and
Obrigado for all the hard work.

I would not recommend starting with this rom, it is a beta of an unreleased OS. (only for testing not stable for everyday use)
Start Here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1196261
that will get you phone ready to "flash" a custom ROM
then flash this rom for now: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1271118

until the final official release is there hope to get only the start screen on a "working" ROM?! on devices like HTC 7 Pro? I would like to have only the start screen, i dont need new features, until the official release. But then again i dont need some extra functions :)

    Hey,

    can i add an another language to this rom from the tango language packs?

    Next Deepshining Rom version (to be released in minutes) will have all languages available.
    Check HD7 thread to download

    Other HTC devices will soon have it to.

    Thanks

    So besides the start screen, is there anything new?

    Nothing really new, this must be an early build. One thing it bugs me is that Themes do not work so probably we might have something new related with themes soon
