Microsoft has finally updated the Windows Marketplace for Mobile to version 1.2.1417.0001 . This new version brings the much needed feature where users can now select on whether they want to install the downloaded apps to the onboard storage, or to the external storage card. Also added is the ability to choose any region/market from which you want to download and install apps. What this means is that even if you are living outside US, you can still access the US store and install the apps from there by simply changing your region to “United States”.
Folks over at XDA-Developers have managed to extract and run Windows Marketplace for Windows Mobile 6.5 on Windows Mobile 6.0/6.1 devices! All you have to do is to download and install the .cab file discussed here which will then download an update for Windows Mobile to make it ready to use on Windows Mobile 6.0/6.1 devices. This .cab file fix will also work on cooked ROMs of the recently leaked builds of Windows Mobile 6.5 Build 230XX and 234XX branch.
