XAP Installer Update Released

Windows Phone 7 hacking and modding seems to be slowly taking off and as such, we start seeing stuff like this flying around the forum. XDA member kuerbis2 has updated his famous XAP installer for Windows Phone 7. This app allows you to load most apps on Windows Phone 7. Under normal conditions, you would only be allowed to install things straight from the marketplace and not from your phone like you are used to with cabs (thinking back to Windows Mobile). Among some of its improvements, you will see that the app does not need to be uninstalled in order to install the newer version. The other big thing in this new release is that Phone Dev Tools are no longer required, which is a big plus.

If you would like to help, please be sure to leave some feedback.

Hi,

attached you’ll find a new XAP installer which has quite a few unique selling points.

– In-place update on the phone: In-place update on the phone, e.g. if you already have Version 1.0.0.0 of an app installed on the phone and install 1.0.2.0 an in-place update will performed. No more full “uninstall-new install” cycle required. Your settings, custom files etc. won’t be removed (same as marketplace update)

– CoreCon2 based, e.g. Phone Dev Tools are no longer required for application deployment!

You can find more information in the application thread.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...

Do ISPs Abuse Their Power?

Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
