What is it?
That’s Opera Mobile 10 initially built for Windows Mobile. I’ve just added an extra layer that makes it running.
Why does it only work on fully unlocked ROMs (like Dynamics ROM)? Isn’t developer/interop unlock enough to run it? Can it work with Root Tools?
Developer unlock will let you install xap. Interop unlock will let inbuilt interop library work. Full unlock or Root Tools unlock will let Opera native exe run.
Which ROMs should I use?
Almost all custom ROMs (based on either Dynamics or DFT) or stock ROMs compatible with WP7 Root Tools.
What’s countdown made for?
Press “Stop” and find more options available.
When I press “Stop”, there is a “Delete internal opera folders” button. Why is it here? I can delete this app like any other WP application…
The reason is that Opera launcher goes beyond the standard isolated store. For example, it creates “\Program Files\Opera Mobile 10” folder. Also it adds some absent libraries to \Windows\.
If you delete Opera launcher “like any other WP application”, folders beyond the sandbox will still stay there. So, use “Delete internal Opera folders” button wisely.
