EasyWP7Updater

Hello hackers!
Earlier today I started working on a project that should make updating Windows Phones via cabs easier. It's called EasyWP7Updater. Currently only manual cab sending is enabled, you can grab cabs from the official update list thread or if you have a custom rom, your rom author might offer customization cabs.

Downloads: https://github.com/jessenic/EasyWP7Updater/downloads

Bug Reports and Feature Requests: https://github.com/jessenic/EasyWP7Updater/issues

Source code: https://github.com/jessenic/EasyWP7Updater/tree/

Future homepage: http://jessenic.github.com/EasyWP7Updater/

Please test and report all bugs you might find either responding to this thread or by posting them on the Issues page on Github. Feature requests are also welcome.

In the future I'll allow ROM builders to add cabs in the app, stay tuned!

Really, @Magpir?!? That's just a matter of the CAB itself. It has nothing to do with the CAB sender. You'd get the same behavior if you update manually using any CAB sender, or if you update using the official Zune mechanism. It's already known what causes the re-lock (the "prevent relock" registry values that normally have the MS server where you phone checks its expected lock setting are restored by this update). It's also known how to avoid the problem (http://windowsphonehacker.com/articl...ution-06-28-12).

@jessenic: Nice project! Are you planning to include "fake an update just to take a backup" as a feature? It would be nice to narrow down the number of apps needed.

Possible in the future, it's open source so you could start working on that too

At the moment there is no big difference, but in the future my app will let you download cabs from ms servers in a simple way too.

Just tried it, and it works fantastic! Although, similar to other senders, this one should be easy and familiar to those who do not hack much. This makes it much simpler.

Since it's open source, are you allowing people to include it in other archives? I've downloaded and compressed the updates, added cab sender, then uploaded it for easy installation. Can I do that with this if I give you credit?

Thanks for your hard work. Great Job!

We are adding automatic download for all OS versions, it detects the one on phone and shows latest versions and tells the user how to check which language packs are installed. That's the plan at least.

It solely depends on how ROM packages are built. Have you noticed "Shadows" tab in DSM editor?

What the heck is this?
Maybe my brain is still asleep but how the hell do you execute this? There is no file to run it. All I'm seeing is uncompiled VB files.



!update!
Wow what a bad setup on the download page. So I guess I had to source download but still it's pretty confusing.
