Hey guys seems there is some news files to test on your WP7.


Today we have an exciting breakthrough for the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community - the ability for anyone to unlock a WP7 device without a Marketplace developer account.

Unlocking allows the sideloading of experimental applications that would otherwise can’t be published to the Marketplace, such as those which access private or native APIs.

We’ve taken the pain out of the process involved and put together a super simple executable that will allow anyone to unlock any WP7 device on the market using a USB cable and just a couple clicks.

This tool is completely safe and reversible for the phone. (The app even allows you to relock the phone.)

v1.0 download mirrors:

Minimum supported OS: Windows XP SP2
As this is our first release, you may run into issues. Please explain your issue in the comments below and we’ll try our best to help.

Expect more goodies/tools to be released in the near future.

We look forward to what the broader community can do with this.

- Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh, Long Zheng

you can discuss about it here hope it will help.
Not sure to post here or in general but it will certainly help for futur hacking so.

That was quick! Fantastic news for developers. Just need to get our teeth into some native code and we will start seeing some applications which aren't rss readers!

Do you just email the xap to yourself?

using the Application Deployment tool in the WP SDK, same as you would with a developer-unlocked phone.
