The Nokia Lumia 800 is one of the finest creations of the company that accompanies a magnificent operating system of Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor and was first seen on November 2011 in colors of Black, Cyan, Magenta and White.
There has been some news on the market that the Nokia Lumia 800 and some other handsets of the same series have a surprisingly beneficial flaw; possibly, some of the devices released out into the marketplace with stock Qualcomm bootloaders that allow full access to the onboard memory of the phone.
What that means is that, if you switch on the phone while holding down the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons connect it to a PC over USB, and it recognizes the phone as a Qualcomm storage device, you can flash an unlocked ROM to the handset and freely install unsigned apps on your device.
RainbowMod, a Nokia hacker released a custom ROM called Tango ROM. A Chinese firmware version was what he used in it. Installing his MOD means you will be updated to firmware 7.10.8773.98, bringing new features and functionality to your Nokia Lumia 800. The ROM comes with English and Russian language packs built-in. To install the MOD and avail of the new customization options, you’ll need the Qualcomm boot loader to flash it.
