For those of you who own a Windows Phone 7 powered device and want to do more than just the usual with it, then getting under the Windows Phone 7 “skin” would be the next step to take, tinkering with the software according to your own ability.

There seems to be a new root tool version that will feature a full blown registry editor, file system browser and certificate injection capabilities that hopefully, will be able to (in the words of the folks behind the root tool) ‘re-energize the homebrew community’. Basically, WP7 Root Tools 0.9 alpha and WP7 Root Tools SDK 0.1 will offer true root access to devices that feature stock ROMs – and just in case you did not know, rooting is a process where one is able to access system files and make modifications to them.

Devices running on custom ROMs will not be exempt, either, although you need to make sure that your device is Interop Unlocked in order to maximize the use of WP7 Root Tools. Just bear this in mind, that you would best make a backup of your device before attempting anything of this sort as you can never quite tell just when Murphy might strike. By Ubergizmo.
