There is a new utility available which removes the application lock for Smartphone 2002 devices right before you copy and install a new ROM from your PC to the phone:
SmartPhoneROM Patcher easily removes application lock for development on Microsoft Smartphone 2002.
This tool will patch the ROM file before downloading to the device (e.g. on ROM upgrades). There are no difficult steps to remove the application lock any more.
This method is generic and can be applied to all old/current/upcoming Smartphone 2002 ROM's of any provider. Tested with Orange ROM 1.35, 1.5x and Mitac XXX
Since it seems to seriously work you should have to keep in mind that changing anything in the ROM can completely freeze your phone so I suggest this method for experienced users only!
