Types of unlocking
Windows Phone Hacker defines jailbreaking as "developer unlocking a device unofficially". This aside, the following levels of unlocking are possible:

Jailbreaking:The term "jailbreaking" is derived from the term commonly used to refer to running unsigned software on iOS devices. In Windows Phone terms, the usage may vary. For purposes of this wiki, "Jailbreaking" will refer to unlocking a Windows Phone device without an App Hub account or ChevronWP7 Labs token. Essentially, enabling sideloading on a device with no cost to the end users.

Developer Unlock: This allows third-party (homebrew) applications to be sideloaded onto the device. Max 10

Interop Unlock: This allows better access to the device, including areas Microsoft has locked down. Registry editors, file explorers, etc., require this.

Rooting: This allows higher privileges to be granted to applications. This is possible on devices with custom ROMs, or interop unlock. Dynamic Background and Lock Widgets require this.

Full Unlock: This allows native EXEs to be run on the device. This includes things such as the DFT Bluetooth file transfer application.
