It seems that a select bunch of Nokia Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 smartphones that run on the Windows Phone platform has shipped, carrying unlocked bootloaders on them so that those with a more adventurous spirit will be able to load custom ROMs on their respective handsets. This particular error was discovered by biktor_gj on XDA Developers, and it is most probably human error that this happened, in Nokia’s perceived rush to release those two smartphones to the market. Bear in mind that the total count is relatively low, and if you are one of the ‘lucky’ few who want to flash custom ROMs, then the relevant instructions can be found over on XDA Developers.
Bear in mind that flashing a custom ROM has its fair share of risks, and if something goes wrong, you might eventually end up with a very expensive paperweight on your tablet. Only those who know what they are doing (and can afford a bricked phone) will go ahead, voiding their warranty in the process.
