Here's the updated emulator build (thanks to pirozhki for unlocking it). There's no options to add data sources to sync/connect with. Now that we have the final build, hopefully we can get it working better than some of the beta builds.



To run it, just like the previous ones...

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft XDE\1.0\XDE.exe" "C:\Users\YOU\Desktop\WM70C1.en-US.unlocked.bin" /VMID {E575DA31-FC47-4766-853F-018D823B9EE6}

Or you can place the file in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Phone\v7.0\Emulation\Images" with the name "WM70C1.en-US.bin" and debug with visual studio and it will launch. I believe this still does NOT work with https connections which is probably causing lots of things to not work. Hopefully we can get that figured out so we have a fully working build.

So here's the download!

I believe the emulator is still 'locked'. Anyone want to get crackin on fixing that? Here's the instructions I wrote up a while back for the previous build. I doubt they changed anything. I'll work on it when I get home from work if noone beats me to it

Barring any unforeseen issues, it'll be done in a few hours. Hold tight.

Any chance you could enable the task manager ans shortcuts while you're at it? Will save me having to redo the unlock when I get back to the office.

RustyGrom,

Thanks a bunch for doing this!

A couple of comments from a developer who's intensively used the unlocked ROM for the last couple of months:

1. The "Task Manager" and "Shourtcuts" (File System Explorer) programs were missing from the last unlocked ROM. Any chance we can have those back?
I've got samples of how those apps looked like in the original unlocked rom @
justinangel.net/WindowsPhone7UnlockedRoms

2. HTTPs was disabled on the last unlocked ROM, which makes using this ROM for development of real world apps pretty hard. See more on this issue @
imaginativeuniversal.com/blog/post/2010/08/01/WP7-Tip-done28099t-use-the-unlocked-ROM-for-development.aspx

3. If you can ship a dump of the ROM as well as the unlocked eumator - that'll be awesome.

Again, thanks a bunch for doing this. You're definitely contributing to WP7 development efforts.

This ought to do the trick. Add Account and whatnot is still broken though =/


pirocast.net/WM70C1.en-US.unlocked.bin

1. I plan on trying to get those back. I don't think it would be too hard. Just need to find the binaries and figure out how to get them into the BIN (I've never added files but it shouldn't be too bad).

2. This one is super tricky. I did some testing on it and once you made ANY sort of material change, it stopped working. It was EXTREMELY annoying. It's almost as if they have some sort of checksum action going on that nukes the certificate checking if you mod the OS.

3. Will do.

It just frustrates me that Microsoft won't release it this way. CLearly if we can unlock it, so can they. They're just making the gap between the "haves" (those with devices) and the "have nots" that much wider.
