Microsoft Says “No Soup For You” To WP7 Devices Unlocked With ChevronWP7

Those who used the ChevronWP7 unlock tool before it was removed have received an OTA update that revoke’s ChevronWP7’s certificates. Essentially, that means it locks the devices again, so the few homebrew apps that were released will no longer work. It appears those hoping for sideloaded homebrew apps will have to wait for a sanctioned version, if that ever happens.

    I just hope the dev didn’t sell out. Oh well, I’m sure someone else will step up if this doesn’t go our way.

    Actually, no, you need to correct the article. Aparrently the update did revoke the certificate, but this just causes a warning message before an untrusted app is run. It doesn’t prevent the app from running.
