Unlock your Windows Phone without a developer account

Do you want to try to create an app and run it on your Windows Phone phone without the need to create a developer account? Alternatively, would you like to test an app that a friend made but that has not been published in Windows Phone Store?

If you have updated to WP8.1 Use this trick to deploy unlimited xaps

To do this,

you must first download the Windows Phone 8 SDK, and then

use the Windows Phone Developer Registration Tool, which is installed with the SDK.

To register your phone by using the Windows Phone Developer Registration Tool

  1. Turn on your phone and unlock the phone screen.
  2. On your phone, ensure that the date and time are correct.
  3. Connect your phone to your computer by using the USB cable that came with your phone.
  4. On your computer’s Start screen, switch to All apps view.
  5. Under Windows Phone SDK 8.0, click Windows Phone Developer Registration. The app starts, as shown in the following image.Developer_Registration_Tool
  6. Verify that the Status message displays Identified Windows Phone 8 device. Click the Register button to unlock the phone.If your phone is already registered, the Status message indicates this and you see an Unregisterbutton.
  7. Click Register.
  8. In the Sign In dialog box for your Microsoft account (formerly known as a Windows Live ID), enter the email address and password for your Microsoft account. Click Sign In.If you’re a registered developer, be sure to use the Microsoft account associated with your developer account.
  9. After your phone is successfully registered, the Status message displays Congratulations! You have successfully unlocked your Windows Phone.

Your phone is now registered. You can now deploy apps to the phone.

You can deploy 2 xaps. If u want to deploy more than 2 xap u need developer account with .edu email id.
