IMP : PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW IT STEP BY STEP

Its been a while since a user djamol managed to get some access to the apps folder in the SD card for Windows Phone devices and it was a while since something could be thought about it.

So here are some guys who managed to get some tweaks for our windows phone devices, but youll have to earn it, unless you are lucky.

Simplified the method for everyone from the posts at XDA here and here.

Note* : This is ONLY for devices with an SD CARD SUPPORT!
If you do not have a device with SD CARD support, IT WONT WORK!

Auto Method : 

First of all you will need a Developer Unlocked Device with the Preview fore developers app Installed on the SD card.
For that you can head here and then continue with the rest.

From the above step just complete the installation and come back to this post.

Make sure you move the Preview for Developers app onto the SD card using the Storage Sense app in your phone.

First up,
You need to download Swapper and Registry tool package (Errors fixed) , it contains 2 xap files, dont go head over heels with them , relax, and keep reading.

Unzip the package, Copy CustomPFD_0003.xap via USB to any folder in your phone.

Now you need to deploy the other XAP to your phone, so for that if you are aware, you need the WP 8 SDK, and a deployment tool or you can use the default one.

Deploy CustomWPSystem_0400.xap to your phone, dont open it as yet.

The part where we need to get access is the “Apps” folder on your SD card which is in the hidden folder named “WPSystem”, this folder also has “System” property and wont let you do any modification.

To remove these attributes, you need to deploy this app WPSystem_Folder_Unlocker_Release_ARM to your phone, start the app and just tap on “Unlock WPSystem Folder (sdcard)” button

It should say “Success!”

Tap OK

Now lets head on to the next step.

Make sure you are not running ANY SDCARD based apps in the background ,

Run CustomWPSystem from the menu , choose “Preview For Developers” from the drop down,  now tap on “Choose XAP and apply” , it will open the file picker, here you need to select the CustomPFD_0003.xap file which you had copied earlier via USB, select that and tap on Patch!

Once its done, head back into the menu and look for Preview for Developers app, it should have a different Icon, meaning everything went fine.
Open the app , and there you have all the tweaks and registry edits available 😀

Manual Method (If the Auto one gives errors) :

 

Ok so if you get any error while doing the PATCHING via CustomWPSystem app, then you need to do it all manually.

Download Mentro Commander from the store

Deploy CustomPFD from the package you downloaded earlier and let Preview for Developers original be installed from store in the SD Card

Move the deployed CustomPFD to SD card, dont start it as yet

I used “Folders” (Search in the store) app to rename the apps folder from WPSystem/ Apps to Appx

DELETE everything from Original Preview for developers app i.e WPSystem/Apps/{178ac8a1-6519-4a0b-960c-038393741e96}

Now rename Appx to Apps again
Then open Mentro Commander app
Navigate both sides of the folders first, don’t miss this or files will copy to the location on the right side in the wrong folder ,

So on the left hand side, open the folder to CustomPFD which is {27d6a090-50d2-4337-88cb-41d97597757a} and on the RIGHT open original Preview for developers folder which is {178ac8a1-6519-4a0b-960c-038393741e96}

Now tap on left side and then tap on SELECT ALL,

It will select all file from the left side, including folders, and tap on COPY, it will copy all the files and folders to the RIGHT > which is the original Preview for Developers folder

Done!

now exit that app and goto the menu, you should see Preview For Developers app with the new Icon.
Fire it up and gogo with tweaks!
