Hey Guys,
is there a way to open xap files and edit them?
On WP7 you can rename the xap to zip and open them but now this wont work with UniExtract, 7-zip and WinRar
Is this way not possible in WP8?

This was said many times over and over again, and here it is yet again: XAPs from the store are encrypted and thus can't be opened with archivers... You'd first need to decrypt them, but there's no way of doing that ATM, so you're stuck with either homemade XAPs or those pulled from an unlocked phone (since the phone decrypts them before installation). Other than that little encryption problem, you can still open them with various archivers.

No problem, it's just that this was asked and answered so many times already.
