I HAVE FOUND A NEW WAY FOR STUDENT DEVELOPER UNLOCK!! STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES!! CHEERS! ***********PLEASE READ BEFORE STARTING*********
IMPORTANT : Sicne the APP HUB IS UPDATED FOR WP8 , THERE WILL BE SOME DIFFERENCE IN THE TUTO WITH THE APP HUB THINGS, SO MAKE SURE YOU DONT GET CONFUSED.
Important : Timings i noticed to see the Maricopa Community College activate accounts is 8PM IST,so youll can try to make the accounts at that very time.
V.Important : Make sure you follow it step by step and dont skip any step unless one is completed.
If you do not get the email from the college , it may be due to server downtime, and i would suggest you check the email after a few hours.
I would suggest you make a fresh Hotmail ID because the Apphub updated and use it at the registration tool.
PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING FIRST AND THEN PROCEED WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS.
Video : Will make one soon with new steps for now follow the screen shot and the rest of the tutorial.
