Chris Walsh, a developer of ChevronWP7 jailbreak for Windows Phone 7 has released a hack that lets you bypass Microsoft and carriers to download WP7 updates on your own.

“I don’t care which carrier you are on, which phone you have, it’ll just update your phone accordingly,”

This tool was created using Microsoft’s own support tool to create a program that applies all WP7 updates at once. This will also brings the copy paste functionality to Windows Phone 7 (WP7) smartphones. The official updates are supposed to roll out on Tuesday, starting with the HTC HD7. Typically, Microsoft works with carriers to send over-the-air software updates.

“We really have to commend Microsoft here for being able to split up the OS updates into differential packs, which saves users downloading 200+ MB updates, unlike the IFruit updates,”

he added, referring to Apple.

According to the instructions for the tool, users need to download Microsoft’s Windows Phone Support Tool before executing the ChevronWP7 Updater program. Also there is a disclaimer saying downloading the hack will void your phone’s warranty.

Also Walsh said in his blog

“There is NO revert process, again, flash at your own risk,”

Last November, Walsh, along with Rafael Rivera and Long Zheng, created a jailbreak called ChevronWP7 that unlocked the operating system. But, by January Microsoft had shut it down.
