    Install any manufacturers app from one place without fiddler!!

    1. Go to settings /language +region..change your region to United states and then restart your phone.

    2. Go to settings /WiFi / press your WiFi network and there you can see an option to switch on proxy.

    3. After switching on it will ask for the server address and port number, fill them with the above details and save.

    4. That's it, open up market and click apps from Nokia, there you can find All the applications

    Note:
    Since it is a proxy, there is the chance that some sensitive data may be transmitting across the wire to the proxy (I'm assuming it's a Fiddler proxy due to the default 8888 port number). I would turn off all e-mail from syncing while running this..

    Thanks to reker @xda developer forums

    Everything at once
    Proxy: 117.135.139.179
    Port: 8888
    Country/Region: USA

    You can turn off proxy to speed up once download is started.

    Everything in market is install-able, if you see 'not compatible', try 3 seconds later with lucky until success.
    Enjoy

    ^ for those interested, if you are still on GDR1 the Nokia apps like Nokia Pro Cam, Smart Cam and Video Trimmer will not work. But Samsung and HTC apps should work fine.

    This is awesome. Apps that say not available. Back out of it, wait 3 secs, and go back in. You'll see the Install button. HTC apps I can't install though.

    Does this work on GDR2 based phones? The store didn't change to show me Nokia apps after putting this proxy information in. Still only gives me the Sprint and HTC apps. (Sprint 8xt)

    I'd like to install Samsung's App Folder but routing your phone through a random proxy is risky.

    yes I can. L925. Enjoy. When you use the proxy, it loads very very slow but just be patient. Once you start downloading all the apps you want (most don't work-I recommend just getting Nokia branded ones) then turn proxy off and it will download faster.

    restart your phone. Go straight to WiFi and put in the correct proxy info. Since your on HTC, go to the store and hit search. Type "Nokia" or "Nokia glam me" and when it shows up open it. Scroll down to select "more apps from this developer" done. You'll see them all. Be patient its slow. Just be smarter than the phone ;)
