What does this mean?

Well if you ask me it just means we have to wait a little longer for someone else to bring us the same type of tool.

Here's an excerpt form the developers web page

" Pursuing the future of homebrew on Windows Phone 7 Earlier today, we were contacted by Brandon Watson, Director of Developer Experience for Windows Phone 7, to discuss the ChevronWP7 unlocking tool. Through this discussion, we established a mutual understanding of our intent to enable homebrew opportunities and to open the Windows Phone 7 platform for broader access to developers and users. "

And if you have read the article, here's a link http://www.chevronwp7.com/

Looks like they have left us a piece offering with a ringtone manager.

So lets see how this affects the new windows phone 7 user experince.

For me this means I will wait to pick up my HTC surround 7, I was really hoping to get accesses to the file system and such. Maybe I'm wrong but I thought with the chevron tool we would see a file system mangaer app very soon.

So now that I'm going to wait can someone with a new Windows phone 7 tell me if they miss having a walpaper on the desktop? I'm liking my UFC/Tapout wallpapers and think this might really bother me


I guess there is good news here

Rather than Microsoft trying to shut down the devs, it looks like they are going to allow home brew apps and maybe the development of chevron 7 will continue just under Microsofts thumb.

I still can't wait fpor another group to come out and give us what we tinkers like, full control. If you know of a group or dev team working on this or another working solution please share in the comments below.
