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.

Wrong!

The UI setting you mentioned provides another level of filtering. If you set it to All, you'll be able to install self-signed applications (with seriously limited capabilities) along with Express/Certified Signed applications. The other choice disallows self-signed stuff.

There is no user accessible setting to disable the Platform Security's certificate checks. It's possible though by using ROMPatcher+ for example, but that's not less complicated than jailbreaking an iPhone for example.
