Ever wanted to check out what the various other OEM’s offer their customers ? Perhaps you want to check out the exclusive marketplace offered by a different Carrier that the one you currently use. Well if you answered yes to those then stick around , we are going to tell you how to do just that in a few simple steps. Like all Best Homebrew Apps for Windows Phone this one requires a full unlock or you use use Windows Phone Root Tools to give the Marketplace Config app Trusted status.
Marketplace Config was developed by xda-dev member ken52787 and offers the following features .. on first run it creates a back up of you default marketplace settings , so if somethings goes wrong at any point of time you can reset the changes and go back to how things were. The main features the app offers are
- Change OEM marketplace – Most of the top OEM’s are available via the app like Acer, Dell, Fujitsu, HTC, LG, Nokia, Samsung, and ZTE (although only HTC, LG, Nokia, and Samsung have accessible marketplaces)
- Change Carrier marketplace – Currently included is AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Orange (France), and Telekom (Germany), Telstra ( Australia ) and many many more
- Change the maximum file size cap over 3g – Lets you Download larger apps and podcasts over 3G without needing a wifi connection
- Lock the settings – Prevents your settings from reverting back in a day or two when the marketplace updates itself.. you can do this via the settings , there is a toggle to make the changes permanent. I don’t really recommend that .. mostly because I am paranoid that way.
Like app homeBrew apps you are on your own while using this ..blah ..blah, you can grab the file from here and dont forget to thanks ken52787 for his work.
