Device Update is an 'appstore' type application to automatically download and install from a list of selected applications.

Improvements so far over v1 include:
* Complete backend rewrite.
* Developer level access to update applications.
* Complete application rating system.
* Compressed software catalog means the application loads 450% faster!
* Compressed CAB files mean less time waiting and less data transfer to pay for.
* Integrated application information
* More error trapping than ever before
* Complete integrated web site for ease of use and for developers
* Live updates of download stats on the web site.
* Application reviews on the web site.
* Auto-install applications after hard reset or new ROM install (Requires Premium Membership).
* Install applications to SD Card

Installing via SDAutorun
Copy the CAB file to \Storage Card\ on your device.

Add the following to \Storage Card\SDConfig.txt:
CAB: \Storage Card\
If you don't already have a file \Storage Card\SDConfig.txt, create it and use the following:
CAB: \Storage Card\
RST: Reset
This will allow you to automatically upgrade to whatever version of DeviceUpdate is the latest and auto-install your applications

CRC I am running a Titan with WM6.5 and yesterday I used your program with no problems, today it loaded a new version and said "unsupported device". Any way to get back to old version?

Hi mate,

Part of what the last upgrade was is to get things ready for full multi-device support. Sadly, part of that is to disable devices that are not proven to be 100% compatible.

I'm slowly going through and adding extra devices such as the Titan, Opel etc... At the moment, I just ask you to be patient until I can complete this task.

The current supported devices include Hermes & Kaiser with more coming soon.
