Huawei Ascend W1 bootloader unlocked, running custom ROM

The Huawei Ascend W1 is known for being an affordable Windows Phone device, but it is now also known for being hackable. A talented developer has managed to unlock its bootloader and install a custom ROM onto the device, thus opening it up to a whole lot of potential.

The Ascend W1 features a 4.3 inch touch display, 4GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, a 5 megapixel camera, a secondary camera for video calls and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM.

Now with the device unlocked the developer has managed to save offline map data to the microSD card and added the ability to assign a static IP address when connected to Wi-Fi.

What more features do you expected to see hacked into Windows Phone 8? We honestly would love to see a Windows Phone 7 device hacked first, so we can have Android installed on it.
