Windows Way back in old and boring January of this year, Microsoft announced they would be working together with the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community, with the goal of creating a stable, supported way for homebrew developers and people interested in homebrew applications to enable side-loading on their WP7 devices. Well, they took their sweet time, but the ChevronWP7 team (Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh, and Long Zheng) and Microsoft have just announced the results.

By default, Symbian blocks applications without a certificate. However, you can disable this block - you'll get a warning you can dismiss. This way, you can distribute an application any way you like. The OP failed to mention this.


Ahh ok. So are applications distributed in this manner able to access the full functionality of the device, or are there certain things that are available only to signed applications?

Just so we know we're comparing "Apples" with apples so to speak.
