When Windows Phone Marketplace for developers is expanding to many countries with Mango release, whatâ€™s the exact goal of ChevronWP7 labs which has some ties with Microsoft. Chris Walsh of Chevron team tweeted few details on their goal. First and foremost, Chevron will allow developers from unsupported countries to developer unlock the Windows Phone device for $9 . He also clearly stated that they wonâ€™t support piracy and this may lead to some sort of homebrew apps as well. Hope their plans soon materialize and give unlucky developers a chance to play with their Windows Phone devices.
Of note is that the solution will not allow users to access unsupported APIs including editing the registry.
