    Default How to Unlock Your Windows Phone (and Install YouTube App)

    Given Microsoft's stance about security and fragmentation, "unlocking" your WP device is a bit tricky. Here are the steps:

    1. Install Windows Phone SDK from here. 1GB+ download. Restart your computer after done.
    2. Connect your phone using USB cable.
    3. Make sure your phone's date and time are correct
    4. Go to Start Screen
    5. Type Windows Phone Developer Registration
    6. Follow the on screen wizard and login using your Microsoft account.


    This will unlock your device so you can install "developer" apps.


    How to install an app:
    • Download WP8 Power Tools from here.
    • Connect to your device
    • Browse the XAP file
    • Install/Update



    Although Windows Phone has one of the best youtube app of all platforms (MetroTube), the YouTube app from Microsoft is really nice too. Everyone knows Google's underhanded tactics against Windows Phone regarding the youtube app. They have blocked the youtube app's api key so the app doesn't work anymore.

    Now there is a new youtube XAP that comes with a different key to workaround this issue. I have attached the XAP in here. After downloading, rename the .zip to .xap and follow the above process to install it!

    Depends on which app you want. There are tons of "youtube app" but arguably the best two are: MetroTube and the one linked above.

    Yes. But there is one step missing for that.

    The XAP from store are "marketplace XAP" and the XAP posted above is "developer XAP." You will need to convert marketplace xap to developer xap. I know it can be done but I still don't know how. I will see if I can find that.

    On the other hand, Samsung Ativ windows phones has a "bug" that will allow you to "InterOp unlock" your handset. That is equivalent to android rooting.

    Version 3.2

    Vevo/Encrypted videos should be working for now.
    Removed that pesky "the content owner did not make this available for mobile" message.
    This version comes with 100% less ads
    Comments now work 100%
    "High Quality" mode working again! Fixed all videos default to pulling from m.youtube.com regardless of encryption status.
    "High Quality" mode working for ALL VIDEOS INCLUDING ENCRYPTED!!!

    CvP I don't know much about the insides of a Windows phone, but is this similar to rooting in Android? I can install any apps from the Windows Market Place(or whatever it is called) like Cydia for Apple?

    There are no cracked apps if that's what you mean.

    No. This is "developer unlock." Legal and trouble free. This will allow you to install "developer" version of any app.

    You can download the XAP files from market place but those are "store" version.

    Now what is happening is, Samsung Ativ S model has a bug that allows "inter-op" unlock the phone. This, in turn, allows someone to download an app from the store; convert it back to "developer app" from "store app."

    So, it is kinda like that but not exactly. You will still need to find the "developer version" of the app you want. Be careful with these "developer version" of apps because you don't know if (or how) they have been modified.

    Now the funny thing is, some people are downloading legit paid apps, converting it to developer apps and uploading to store as free apps. lol.
