Now, thanks to Dan Ardelean, the ROM has been unlocked. To unlock your device emulator, follow these steps:
1) Download the unlocked ROM from [a=http://www.megaupload.com/?d=48ZGGA5Sendurl]here[/a] ([a=http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=5922577&postcount=295endurl]mirror[/a])
2) Extract the file
3) Rename WM70Full.bin to WM70C1.bin
4) Copy to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\WindowsPhone\v7.0\Emulation\Images, replacing the old file (Might want to backup the old file)
5) Run the emulator.
*Hint: If you don't want to use the IDE to run the emulator, make a shortcut to: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft XDE\1.0\XDE.exe" Files\Microsoft XDE\1.0\xde.exe C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\WindowsPhone\v7.0\Emulation\Images\WM70C1.bin
