    I was forced into a hard reset, without knowing these apps were pulled from the store

    I can't live without these apps so I'm gonna attempt to developer unlock my phone and side load the apps

    Please if you have these xap's can you post a link?

    Yes, when I click on download and install manually, the file downloads. I tested one. I am doing this from a laptop.

    scroll down and look at the left side, the option is there

    on another note, I LOVE YOU (the person who shared the manual option)
    but wait, the Store says "Unsupported apps and games"
    o-o?

    It came on wpcentral before that the dev is going to remove his apps (actually he removed them before republishing them again) . Made them all free before removing them again. Didn't gave any specific reasons that i can remember .

    there's a thread on XDA where some guy hacked the SDK to run on Windows 7
    i'll go find a link

    UPDATE: here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2422751

    but i have the sdk, dev unlocked my sister's phone, got the xaps, and the store says unsupported and the xapdeploy.exe (the SDK) says invalid xap file...

    Even if you have the xap file, they are encrypted and cannot be sideloaded manually. Not to promote piracy, but there is one way that I know of getting it. Since the app was made for WP8, then there will be no unencrypted xaps available, but those people who has a Samsung device which made interop unlock possible in the first place, can actually pull the unencrypted xap from installed state. I really hate that they exploit the interop unlock for piracy, but looking at the bright side, it also makes app restrictions (1GB RAM apps) available to the lower end. I guess one cannot be possible without the other.

    You can try to sideload it if you are a developer, though.

    I tried but I also couldn't,a msg came that"there is some problem with this company app...."thank goodness that I haven't deleted my emulators yet.A compensation for you would be to download the emulator to your windows8/8.1 laptop/PC from the windows store because the app hasn't been removed from there surprisingly.you can play the gba,gbc files from your laptop ^_^

    Please read my post carefully. It is simply not possible to sideload an app that is encrypted using the SDK, meaning the ones you can download from Windows Phone Store. Even if you have the xap in the SD Card and it is no longer published in Windows Phone Store, it is still not possible to install it.

    I see. So, I guess that sideloading is only possible for apps you've already developed and are testing on your phone

    This makes me really sad, I hope a new dev will step up and replace these emulators :(

    Anyone have any contact information for the developer? IIRC he was not going to renew his developer account, which may have resulted in his emulators being pulled from the store. I'm curious to find out why he didn't renew his dev account and would even be willing to pay the $20 renewel fee if it meant we could have the emulators back on the store. I have them on my phone, but there's always the chance I'll have to factory reset my phone or it may break, so I would like to have the option to download them again.
