You might have heard about Windows Phone Internals, especially if you’re a tech enthusiast. But in case you haven’t, we’ll let you know about this tool. Windows Phone Internals is a tool that is able to unlock Windows Phones, and it also allows for root access.

Windows Phone Internals has not been updated since 2015, and it seems that the developer behind it just revealed that a new update for the tool is on its way and it will allow the unlocking of the bootloader on all the modern Lumia Windows phones.

Detailing the forthcoming update for Windows Phone Internals

The developer detailed on the Windows Phone Internals blog that the future version of this tool will be version 2.2 and it would have all the tools that are necessary to bypass SecureBoot on modern Lumia Windows devices.

This will allow for custom ROMs, Mass Storage Mode, Root access and a lot more hacks to be performed on all Windows Phone 8 and Windows 10. The developer doesn’t stop here because he also provided a YouTube video with an even more detailed explanation, demoing the direction where the Windows Phone Internals tool is heading.

Implications of this news

This whole thing is really exciting news that is coming in some harsh times when Microsoft almost abandoned Windows 10 Mobile and placed the platform in maintenance mode.

After this update, developers might be able to take advantage of the updated Windows Phone Internals tools to be able to fully unlock the hardware of all Lumia devices.

They would be able to install operating systems that were not supported by these devices before, to unlock all kinds of features that were locked by mobile carriers and so on.

The 2.2 version of Windows Phone Internals tool will most likely go live in just a few days, and we can’t wait to hear more about it.
