WP8 version no longer supported by me, but if others offer fixes, I will post them here. W10M version is discussed in this thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/wind...nlock-t3451723

WP8/8.1 MixRadio easy method working with instructions from @xboxmod




WP8/8.1 HERE Maps method working with instructions from @slavanap
WP8.1 instructions (SD card needed)



1.Do device registration to allow sideloading of apps

2. Install HERE Maps (microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/here-maps/9wzdncrfhw6b) from the store, and move it to sd card. Download installation file manually ( wpsnitch.appspot.com ), if you want to install it from SD card.

3.Install Windows Explorer, keep it on phone
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/stor...r/9wzdncrdrl4w

4.Sideload WPSystem_Folder_Unlocker_Release_ARM.xap(thanks @djamol and @contable),keep it on phone

5.Extract Install.zip from below , and put the extracted "Install" folder on the root of your sd card. The Install folder should have 4 files in it.

6.Open WPSystem Folder Unlocker app. Hit Unlock WPSystem Folder(sd card) button. It should say Success. Now close it

7.Open Windows Explorer.

8.Hit the app bar, go to "access folders",hit the +, choose sd card, then click the check mark

9.Navigate to D:\WPSystem folder. Rename the Apps folder to Apps1. Now open Apps1 folder

10. Navigate to {EFA4B4A7... or {6C28635B-... (I got the second GUID after reinstall)
11. Delete all directories here except Install . Then navigate to Install folder. Delete following 3 files from there: AppManifest.xaml NokiaRegistryUtils.dll NokiaRegistryUtils.winmd

12.Navigate to D:\WPSystem folder and rename Apps1 back to Apps

13. Navigate to the root of your sd card. Get into "Install" folder we put here earlier. Choose all 4 files from there to Copy.

14.Navigate to D:\WPSystem\Apps\{EFA4B4A7-74...}\Install folder. Hit the app bar then paste.

15. Go to your apps list and run HERE Maps. vcREG should open. Apply unlock.

16. After you apply the unlock, you can sideload vcREG_1_2_SIDELOAD.xap to have the app available in your applist for future use.




Q&A

HOW TO USE THE APP TO CAP UNLOCK
now that the app is open, you want to unlock all capabilities. hit the app bar, and tap "templates". here we see two options, interop/caps unlock, and full fs access through MTP. check your options, and click apply. Reboot for MTP.

HOW TO USE THE REGISTRY EDITOR

the main registry editor is pretty straightforward. put the correct path, the key name and value if its a write.

string: it will read as one string. writing is the same,write a string, no spaces, hit write

multistring: multiple strings are read as strings separated by spaces. to write multiple strings, separate each string by a space, hit write.

dword: it will read as 8 characters of ascii. so a value of 1 will read as 00000001. writing is the same. you MUST write 8 characters or it wont write it,so a 1 is 00000001 and B0000 is 000B0000. all bytes are hex, not decimal.

binary: when you read, the app will return 20 bytes, regardless of how long the binary is. if the whole binary sequence is 11 22 33, it will read as 112233 and then 17 00s. the reason for this is that there isnt a method to know how long the binary sequence is,so i hardcoded it to read 20. even if its longer than 20 bytes, you will only get 20 bytes back. i can up the limit at a later time if its something people need.

writing binary is also limited to a max of 20 bytes. if you are writing less than 20 bytes though, dont put the extra zeroes. if you are writing 4 bytes such as 11 22 33 44, then simply write it like this 11223344(no spaces) then hit write.


DO THESE REGISTRY CHANGES PERSIST AFTER A HARD/FACTORY RESET?

no. if you hard reset, you will revert back to the stock rom and any changes you made to the registry will be lost. you will have to make the changes again after a hard reset. file system changes, especially in the windows folder can persist though.

Is there a way to sideload marketplace apps such as tetra lock screen 1.2.0.0 ? I loved that app.

followed your steps. thank you. not sure how to do this though:
"Once completed, you can remove the app and put extras+info back". How to remove it....
never mind. renamed apps folder on SDCard to appx, deleted the app, renamed the folder back to apps, rebooted, changed time to 2115 and was able to uninstall and reinstall.
cheers

Pretty Awesome Bro !!!
So what i was looking for... Good job mate.
NTDK Server is a great more than Samsung RPCComponent.

I hope that you can expand it to the more API's.
Like File System API and much more.

@vcfan
So this is similart to what root access on android phone? What is the main advantage if we do this, what do we gain? For me on android the bes thing was customization of the look, and the possibility to block ads in free applications . The ads in windows phone aplications are really annoying when the pop up through whole screen, it would be great if there was a way to block them with host file or something, like in android.

I wonder if we can add an extra quick action. I tried editing the "AllowedQuickSettingsElements" registry but it reverts back to 4 as soon as I pull down the action bar.
