Appstore for RT devices.

Designed to make it easier to find the ARM ports of desktop software. Your device MUST be unlocked ( see here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2092158 )

I have retired this version

The source code was just too embarrassing to share - too many kludge fixes on kludge fixes. I have now released a complete suite of all the apps, including a new appstore written from the ground up to be a lot more sensible - and shared the source for the main apps here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=36854150

Major Update

Version 1.0 Beta is here.

Whats new:

Major rework.
Much less web traffic while browsing.
New repo format in use.
Support for multiple repos.
AIP format in use - allowing for much more detail.
Apps now fully install.
UI changes.

1.0 Beta is functionally complete as far as I can tell, but needs some major code cleaning as remnants of the old version still linger, and the UI could probably do with some polish now. However, this version is the future of the RTDstore - so much more flexibility.

Please note the new 'repolist.txt' file - currently this text file is the only way to manage repos - add one url per line.


Hosting your own repo:

now ANYONE can host a repo. All you need is some webspace of some format. No dynamic code is needed, so most free web hosting, including dropbox public folder (if your account is old enough to have the public folder), will work.


* Place the AIP files all in one folder (for example c:\repo)

* Download the RepoBuilder here

* open a cmd prompt to where ever you extract the repobuild exe.

* type:


this will create all the xml files that the store expects. now copy the contents of this folder (xml files and aip files) to some web hosting. If using dropbox public, you can run the repobuild directly on the folder (you can have a sub folder in public btw)

(if using dropbox public, to get your repo url, right click on a file, copy public link - paste it somewhere and then remove the filename from the end of the url)

whenever you update or add an AIP, you will need to repeat this process (in theory, you can just copy the new AIP and corresponding XML - plus the _reporoot.xml )

(to create AIP files - see here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2098993 )

Versions prior to 1.0 beta are outdated - kept for historic purposes...


Version 0.5

Automatically requests UAC if needed
Some basic caching of web results
New icon
UI Fixes
'Installed' list now will run an app if a run.bat was supplied.


see: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2098993 for instruction on creating AIP files.
if you want your AIP on my repo, send me a link either here on private - details coming soon on setting up your own repo.

Thanks to GoodDayToDie and Netham for spurring me on, thanks to clokr for making it all possible.
