[UPDATED-06-APR-2011] New XAP installer, in-place app update, no dev tool and more...
Please download XAPDeployX-V0.9.zip, it is the latest and greatest version
If you have any of the 0x89xxxx
errors, please download the attached "vs_sdeprolightup-enu.zip" file and run it.
attached you'll find a new XAP installer which has quite a few unique selling points.
- In-place update on the phone:
In-place update on the phone, e.g. if you already have Version 126.96.36.199 of an app installed on the phone and install 188.8.131.52 an in-place update will performed. No more full "uninstall-new install" cycle required. Your settings, custom files etc. won't be removed (same as marketplace update)
- CoreCon2 based, e.g. Phone Dev Tools are no longer required
for application deployment!
- Deploy from file or URL:
You can either specify a file or an URL. If you enter an URL the installer will automatically download the xap.
- Own protocol "wphome":
Zune's one-click download for homebrew apps. Automatically install homebrew XAPs with a click on a hyperlink. If you want, you can register the application for the wphome protocol. The application will then be allowed to handle urls like wphome:www.test.com/test.xap
and will automatically start as soon as you click on such a link.
To be able to use "wphome" hyperlinks, you have to click on "Register protocol..." once.
wphome Testlink: wphome:http://www.nextbestgeek.com/w...helloworld.xap
(for testing after you've installed the tool and registered it for the protocol)
After you've opened a XAP file, details will be shown in the top bar.
This is the first step in my plan to provide a homebrew marketplace.
