Ugh. I guess I better grab the currently finished 6.5.1 TP2 ROMs while I can in case they are taken down before unlocker is released.

Re: Microsoft issues take down notice for WM6.5.1 ROMs

Its crap. It always is. It happens every time the PPC world gets the newest and latest in handfuls. It has every time been a scam besides like twice that I recall. I wouldn't be too worried about because in a week or two everything will be back up and normal again.

Great example. Because we all know that Apple loves the idea of you running OS X on your Dell.

XDA isn't even based out of the USA... They don't have to comply with takedown notices structured off of our laws...

Re: Microsoft issues take down notice for WM6.5.1 ROMs

Was wondering when this was going to happen...I don't see the threat lasting long as it would make alot of WinMo user's very unhappy. Not to mention alot of feedback they get from XDA and here at PPC as well. Going to be interesting how things work out though.

Yeah, M$ just probably wants to see how many donations they can get for themselves before they release it to the public.
