[Q] How to open or Deploy original XAP into WP7
I have been using my 2nd gen Samsung Win Phone for a while (Omnia W - GT-I8350 to be more specific). I have recently interop unlock it.
The main account on the phone is a US Live account. So the app store tied to the US version. I however now living in the UK and wanted to install O2 Priority Moments. The app is only on UK store and when I tab the link on O2 website from my phone, it doesn't allow me to install it due to country restrictions.
I managed to found the app page on my PC, and downloaded the XAP for installing via SD card. But my phone doesn't have a card slot. I tried to sideload the XAP using Deploy software. But it cannot be read by the application.
Also, I thought normal XAP should have no difference to a ZIP file. But those I downloaded from Windows Phone website just cannot be open with 7zip or RAR software. The same happens to another free app that I wanted to install, but only available in the Hong Kong store.
Can anyone shed me some light on sorting it out?
