Interop Tools running on the desktop as a remote client (1.9-pre)

OP update is still Work in progress

READ BEFORE POSTING ANYTHING
  • Interop Tools can't be installed, like with a lot of other apps that uses restricted CAPs, if you CAP unlocked your phone using vcREG, vcREG changes 2 registry values that breaks the whole deployment system since one build of the rs1 development, so please reset your phone, use only vcREG to install an older NDTK if needed, and install Interop Tools (h/t @vcfan see your DMs)
  • Interop Tools doesn't require and will never require any CAP unlock
  • Please read the installation instructions carefully
  • Interop Tools versions older than or equal to Beta 1.8.1 are not supported in any way, please update the app
  • I'm not responsible for any damage made by your device if this ever happens even though I'm really careful each time I'm posting a new version
  • When submitting a bug report, please specify what apps related to Interop/Cap unlock you have installed, if you did anything, some reproduction steps and the phone model you are using, along with if you cap unlocked your device.

FEATURES

This app allows you to:
  • Edit the registry through the registry editor
  • Browse the registry hives through the registry browser
  • Find sepecific registry values/keys through the search page
  • Apply tweaks to your device
  • Interop and Cap unlock your device
  • Access device information
  • Remotely edit the registry through the built-in desktop app
  • Manage Applications
  • Manage Certificates
  • Perform standard registry operations such as deleting, renaming, and copying details
  • Built-In Command Prompt inside the app (coming in pre-1.9)

This app includes a lot of neat features which makes a better experience while editing the registry such as for example, the key suggestion bar in the registry editor, or the jump to button in the browser.

STATE OF THE APP

The app is still in development and has some rough edges. I would appreciate if you could report bugs about it, but before make sure you read the Q&A.
Currently the app has limited support for the registry for all devices running at least Windows 10 Mobile build 10240 by default.
Some specific devices have extra support out of the box, please read the list inside the spoiler below.

Lumia handsets (including other handsets with the ndtk service installed):
SYSTEM level access for editing and reading the following registry values and hives:

HKLM
HKCU
HKCR
HKU
HKCC

REG_DWORD
REG_QWORD
REG_SZ
REG_MULTI_SZ
REG_EXPAND_SZ
REG_BINARY


SYSTEM level access for LG and Samsung devices (untested, please report some feedback about it):

HKLM
REG_DWORD
REG_SZ


You can however enable more access privileges by following the instructions above, about enabling system registry access.

Q&A

Q: What does "versatile" means?
A: It means that the app will work on every phone. But that doesn't mean it will work the same everywhere.

Q: Will this app work on Windows Phone 8.1?
A: No this is a Windows 10 UWP app, please fall back to using vcREG and CustomPFD for Windows Phone 8.1.

Q: I'm getting an error while installing one of all dependencies, what should I do?
A: Install all the dependencies first then install the one that throws an error. One of them depends on another one.

Q: The app doesn't install
A: Make sure you're installing the correct package for your processor architecture (x86_x64 is usually for PC, your phone is probably an ARM device) and that you installed all dependencies one by one prior to installing the app.

Q: I have a lumia which is not part of the x50 device family but I can't seem to be able to write some registry values.
A: Make sure under interop unlock, "Restore NDTK" is on, if not turn it on, reboot and try again.

Q; The app crashes.
A: Please submit a bug report with full detailed reproduction steps as well as your device model, if you tampered with ndtk before and other details that may help troubleshoot the crash such as the current running build and etc.

Q: What does TNSTSIGNING do?
A: It enables Test Signing on builds prior or equal to 10572. Don't be stupid and don't turn that on on later builds, your phone will most probably go into a boot loop.

Q: Can't install the versions above Beta 1.7
A: Re-read the installation instructions.

Q: How to install android with this app?
A: No you can't.

No this is a Windows 10 UWP app only, sorry. You can fall back to using vcreg and custompfd on wp8.1, or upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile if you wish to use this app.

Did you install all dependencies provided with beta 1.8.1 one by one before installing the main appxbundle? Dependencies changed between 1.7 and 1.8 and you need to reinstall all of them.

Except Microsoft.NET.Native.Framework.Debug.1.3, I installed all remained dependencies through default File Explorer.
Hope it will work with version 1.9 tommorow.
