Courtesy of a “white hat” developer, you can now install cracked apps on a Windows Phone 7 device. He has also posted his first proof-of-concept hack video.
This video provided to WPCentral as a proof to shows that he can:
- Successfully pull any application from the Marketplace
- Remove the security
- Deploy to an unlocked Windows Phone with literally a push of a button. (Instead, you could just save the cracked XAP file to your hard drive)
According to the the hacker it took only 6 hours to get it right. Now check out the video showing the proof-of-concept demonstration of the application dubbed “FreeMarketplace”.
Microsoft has been informed by the developer how he bypassed the security, and hopefully Microsoft is working on fixes.
