Opera Mobile Ported To Fully Unlocked Windows Phone 7 As Well

Opera Mobile Ported To Fully Unlocked Windows Phone 7 As Well

After successfully getting Opera Mini to run on Windows Phone 7, recognized developer ultrashot did it again: as promised, he managed to port Opera Mobile 10. Since this is the Windows Mobile version, it doesn’t support multitouch, and because of limitations for fully native apps in Windows Phone 7, screen rotation doesn’t work either.

What is it?
That’s Opera Mobile 10 initially built for Windows Mobile. I’ve just added an extra layer that makes it running.

Why does it only work on fully unlocked ROMs (like DFT Freedom)? Isn’t developer/interop unlock enough to run it?
Developer unlock will let you install xap. Interop unlock will let inbuilt interop library work. Full unlock will let Opera native exe run.
That means, nothing except Full unlock will help you run it. Don’t ask me about other unlock methods, that’s not something to discuss in this thread.

Keep in mind that you’ll need a fully unlocked ROM before jumping into the forum thread.

Change your Windows Phone Theme

13 Feb

This is not hacker solution but obvious one, which I overlooked for long time, when it comes to themes we change color and be happy about it, but there is one more option “Dark” & “Light”, Black & White backgrounds respectively. It is there right in Settings -> Themes. Since WP defaults to Dark theme, we stuck with it for long time.
