Aside from the Application deployment tool that comes with WinPho Dev-tools, you have 2 other methods to deploy XAPs to our beloved Windows Phone 7 devices.1.
Use the much easier method, a XAP deployer written by Tom Codon (homebrew), that can deploy XAP files to your Phone/Emulator by double clicking them. Hmm...Sweet, isn't it? 2.
Using the WP7-Deployment tool (basically an extension of the Toms Xap deployer) which removes DRM/Licensing
from the XAP (for testing purposes)Method #1
Basically, Tom XAP installer and WinPho Dev Tools Application Deployment are the same, just the ease of use is much better with the 'homebrew' deployer.
We'll see how to use this second method.You'll need:Installation:
Unpack the 'Tom XAP Installer v1.1.zip
', and run the 'Tom XAP Installer.exe
You should see something like this:
Check the Enable Tom XAP installer
checkbox, and you're done!
It was quite easy, isn't it? You can uninstall it, by simply un-checking the checkbox.Before you do anything:
How to deploy XAPs with it:
- Please make sure your device is Jailbroken
- Make sure your device is connected with PC and Zune lauched
- Make sure your device not in sleep mode
Ok, now you've got your XAP, and want to deploy it to your Device/Emulator.
Providing you've done the steps described in the Installation
part, when you double click the XAP file, you'll see something like this:
Choose the location you want to install it to, and press
' to deploy it to the Device/Emu.Method #2
and unpack somewhere (original item and thread is somewhere on XDA-DEVELOPERS)
Run WP7-DEPLOY (just tick the top two boxes - see picture) and close, then create a shortcut to wp7-deploy on your desktop and drag the xap onto the wp7-deploy shortcut. Make sure Zune is running and hey presto.
That's it, you've done it
Note: If it's a free item then clear the check boxes before deploying.-WinPho Mod Team
