IMPORTANT : Sicne the APP HUB IS UPDATED FOR WP8 , THERE WILL BE SOME DIFFERENCE IN THE TUTO WITH THE APP HUB THINGS, SO MAKE SURE YOU DONT GET CONFUSED.
Edit : TOPIC UPDATED WITH THE CHANGES IN APP HUB REGISTRATION, TUTO still clean!
Need to make a new video, but it seems the tuto is more than enough!! pls try and let me know..cuz i cold do this without a problem.
Important : Timings i noticed to see the Maricopa Community College activate accounts is 8PM IST,so youll can try to make the accounts at that very time.
V.Important : Make sure you follow it step by step and dont skin any step unless one is completed.
If you have not got an active account at Maricopa Community College, wait untill its active, den go for the dremspark and apphub registration, or you will get errors and verification problems and you will have to start from scratch!
I would suggest you make a fresh Hotmail ID because the Apphub updated , but use that hotmail ID only for the dev unlock.
PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING FIRST AND THEN PROCEED WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS.
