A few more apps to add:
Multitask Toggle (Enables or disables app dehydration with an easy toggle and live tile, requires interop-unlock, current version out of date for HTC but works for Samsung and LG) http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1248063
Access OEM marketplaces (no interop required, doesn't use unsigned app limit, appears safer than other methods) http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1393265

I'll try to get an updated version of MultitaskToggle that supports HTC phones with the current drivers sometime soon, though I'm currently focused on trying to find more interop-unlocks (the OEM marketplaces thing was a coincidental offshoot of that effort).

I hope some Mods can look into this and update the first post since lot of links are not working and many new Homebrew apps which are really great are missing from the list as it hasnt been update for 6-7months now :(

This thread sure can serve as a collection for all Homebrew apps :)

I am unable to find any type of ftp client app.
I would think there would be some out there. I am trying to connect to a wifi cam and retrieve images off of it.

    This is a list of all the homebrew apps I could find on the forums and from outside the xda community. If you find any more that are not listed, please let me know in the comments.

    To install these, you will need to have an unlocked device, and then a .xap installer on your pc. There are some .xap installers under Desktop Run Programs in this post.

    These apps are the property of their respected makers. I hold no credit for these applications, I am only putting them all in 1 location.

    Recent Update = (Date)

    I will try to update this thread as much as possible with all the new apps that people will develop. If you do not wish to have your app listed, please pm me, and I will remove it from the list.

    *All third party apps come as-is. There is no guarantee that they will work, and they could permanently damage your phone.
    Added some more apps, and updated some links.
    Nice work!

    would love if this was stickied!
    Great idea! Just wanted point out though, that the U-Verse xap is outdated and won't work anymore. In that same thread I posted the new, working version (1600).
    i loadedthe obile device mgr SW and it do not run, i y Winhave already updated my Win7 to dotnet 4.0...

    Make sure that you also have the windows developer tools installed as well. It works for some but not for others. It is still in beta.
