    You need a dev unlocked device to install XAPs, using a PC. Some custom ROMs will let you install an XAP directly to your phone.

    The WindowBreak Project - Windows Phone Hacker

    That explains how to use WindowBreak to get free interop then developer unlock.

    You'll need to then make sure Zune on your PC is up to date, and install a Microsoft .net framework - you'll want to Google how to do this - your best bet is to check the XDA Developer forums.

    Once you have WindowBreak, Zune, and the Framework, the next step is to install a program that can sideload an .xap to your phone. There are quite a few out there - the one I use is wXAPassistant by WINCO from the XDA forums. Do some research to find out which one works for you.

    Once you've done enough reading, and you have to do the reading in order to understand everything fully, you'll be able to sideload any app you want, install custom roms, and update your phone to the latest WP7 builds.

    Good luck.

    If you end up going the custom ROM route, I'm using an excellent Tango ROM that I got over from XDA. You can install .xap from browser and there are a lot of little customization options included and it's very stable. This is for Focus v1.3 but i'm pretty sure he released a v1.4 also so make sure and know what hardware version your Focus is.

    [ROM] 4/22/12 *V2* ahmedfikry Focus rev1.3 Tango Unlocked / ALL Lang & US-en - xda-developers

    Good luck and have fun!

    Yeah, thats it,
    1st put your xaps to SD Card.
    Then check in "Install local apps"
    If is there nothing to show, then restart your device, that will appear your xaps file. To be shown.
    Sorry for eng.
