I just ran v4 of the Samsung test xap, and I have the same problem as before - it loads & runs the 1st time, passing all 3 tests, then fails to get past the load screen with the clock icon after that. If I restart the phone, it works agin the 1st time, then hangs each subsequent time.
Let me start by wishing everyone a lot of health for 2012.
I'm aware that the current version of WP7 Root Tools expired today. I'm constantly working on new hacks and new versions of my tools; totally free for everyone to use. I'm working on support for more devices and I'm trying to answer support-questions about my tools and hacks as much as possible (forums, PM's, twitter, etcetc and I don't charge $0.50 pm for helpdesk support).
I had some days off for the holidays, and I had planned some time to finish a new version of WP7 Root Tools before it would expire. But I had some really difficult days. My free days were spent working for my boss, because we had problems with our software and we needed to get a customer live before january 1st. Also, I'm now in the car with family. We visited my grandma, who's candlelight has almost burned out on this earth. I got more bad news, but I will spare the details. Anyway, I didn't have much time for hacking over the last days. I hope you understand.
I will try to release a new version later today, which will allow you to use WP7 Root Tools. No new features yet. I will also release a test tool for Focus S and Omnia W, which should provide me the details I need to support those devices too.
Now I need to answer mister James Allan. Because I don't easily get pissed off, but this ungrateful man is doing a real good job.
OMG James Allan! Are you for real? Are you being arrogant or are you being ignorant?
Don't try to give me a responsibility lesson here!! I'm providing free tools and free support! I do my best to give everybody most potential out their device. SORRY IF I'M ONE DAY LATE MAN!!
You say you're 63 and you release bleeding edge software. Well, WHOOHOO! I should respect you for that? Then don't patronize me! I'm 37, married, 2 kids, I release bleeding edge software too, for my boss and in my free time too. And I have my priorities straight. Sorry you're not on top of my list right now! Tsss!
Again, I'm doing this in my free time. No commercial gain. I'm also not doing this to earn anyone's respect or something. Most people who come here are just plain leechers anyway. Over 18.000 downloads (only this version) and 63 people took the effort to click on "thanks"..... This is a hobby for me. Some people like making crossword-puzzles. I like trying to outsmart big companies and make something useful out of it for everyone. And I've spent countless hours on that.
So if you expect me to finish on deadlines, you should hire me and and pay me a good salary. If not, I'll be more faithful to my boss, than to you
I'm sorry I don't have the advantage of the update-mechanisms of the market-place, but Microsoft doesn't really support my work. But you release bleeding edge software, so you should be able to use google/bing to find an update on XDA.
I really don't need your lessons. Please use my tools and hacks without moaning!!
Happy new year!!
First of all, thanks for your tools,it is very useful.
Now, I find it was expired, I have to change the date to previous, and I think there is a better solution about the expired:
You can create a algorithm, If the date was out of your dead line, you can give user a buffer time, like one month.The buffer time could control by your algorithm, don`t let us can`t use.
WP7 will put some agenda information to cloud, when I want to see my agenda in cloud and the time is not the time it was, we will confused . btw the agenda record we also think it is actually right.
Do you think so?
Has anyone downloaded the xap since these notifications have begun appearing? It would be highly irresponsible to allow a xap to be available for download when that xap has expired. It should be removed immediately. I have pm'd the dev and expressed my concern that there was no warning about this ever happening (that I can easily find) and this could have been handled in many other ways other than executing code on our phones that affects a working app. I love his apps and will continue to use them but this was no way to handle this situation. He could merely have said that version .7 Alpha would no longer be supported (don't ask me anymore questions, I will not be monitoring this thread etc.) and that it needed to be uninstalled prior to the installation of the new version (if he was concerned about the upgrade process).
JamesAllen said:I use several of your xaps, specifically because you developed them and I find your efforts useful and stable. I am 63 years old and have been in the business of supporting "bleeding edge" software releases for over 40 years. What you have done with the alpha .7 release is not standard practice by any means. You effectively reached into my device and removed the use of software without any notice. This is hardly standard or acceptable. You could have;
1. Provided a notice that did not require a search to find it,
2. Offered some information about a replacement,
3. Ideally, people should have been made aware of this from the onset.
There was no reason to do this, even if you knew a replacement would not overwrite the installed alpha version. You could have merely let people know they had to deinstall the alpha version and that the alpha version would no longer be supported.
Just offering some advice, the damage to trust and credibility is already done, IMHO. I will still use your xaps with enthusiasm, but what you did here with .7 alpha version has made me pause a bit.
