ChevronWP7 developer Chris Walsh, who is currently having a nice fireside chat with Microsoft about jailbreaking and app development, as confirmed that ChevronWP7 will not work on the next update for WP7. The minor update, known as NoDo is rumored to bring copy and paste as well as minor other bug fixes — including the death of Chevron. Over Twitter, Walsh retweeted what a fellow ChevronWP7 developer said:
We verified ChevronWP7 doesn’t work on NoDo.
While we’re sad about ChevronWP7 dying, it has provided the rather nice side effect that the developers have spent the last few days in talks with Microsoft about sideloading and homebrew.
