New tools promise to unlock the potential of Windows 10 Mobile and Lumia smartphone. Can Windows Phone Internals bring the hacker community back to the fold?

Windows Phone has a very ironic history. Back in the mid-2000s it was the operating system for hackers, tinkerers and those looking to push the boundaries of mobile computing.
The availability of a new suite of tools dubbed Windows Phone Internals 1.0.
The new software has been under development for many months now and lets higher-end hobbyists "unlock the bootloader of selected Lumia Windows Phone models. After unlocking the bootloader, you can enable Root Access on the phone or create and flash Custom ROM's."

The software supports "most versions of Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile", which is very interesting.
