    So I just did a hard reset because my other got to 12gb (this is the second time), now I'm having some trouble

    Btw I have a Lumia 920 which was running the gdr3 developer preview before I did the hard reset

    First when I try to update "extra's + info" it says it's not available for my device... That obviously doesn't make any sense

    Second there are three apps (possibly my favourite apps!) which are also "not available for my device": snes8x, vba8 and vgbc8, if you don't know these are three emulators...
    I would die inside if I can never download these apps again...

    Anyone know what's wrong?

    To download newest info + extras you should change your store region to US and reboot your phone to apply changes. With latest update it has become unavailable in many regions. No idea why, however I updated it via US Store.

    About emulators I have no clue.

    I changed to US store and it's still unavailable :( (no I didn't forget to reboot)

    EDIT: sorry apparently changing "regional format" is not enough, I also had to change "country/region"
    Thanks alot!

    I could have sworn I heard that the emulators were pulled off the store a while back. I could be wrong, but you may be out of luck on those.

    Yes they were pulled for one day and then they were reuploaded to the store

    I know for sure they aren't pulled at the moment because my cousin downloaded them recently...

    go to windowsphone.com
    log in
    go to purchase history
    find those apps
    and there is somewhere an option to send an app to your phone. Not sure if it will do the job, but you can try.

    When I'm in the purchase history not all apps fit on one page so when I try to load more it just flat out doesn't respond...
    This is super aggravating because I can't even get to the app I need to get to in order to try your suggestion...

    Try with App Reinstaller, if what you are looking still on the store you will be able to reach via App Reinstaller app.
    Cheers

    I can tell you that I also see those 3 apps as unavailable. I own a Lumia820 with GDR3 Preview aboard. Just wait until tomorrow, or few more days. :p

    If I were to developer unlock my phone would that allow me to redownload these apps? It's my only hope :(

    Did you check with App Reinstaller support why it crash, also maybe on store is some other similar app.

    I have a feeling that App Reinstaller crashes were related to the problem on windowsphone.com where our installation history would only load a few pages. The website problem has now been resolved so maybe you could try App Reinstaller again?
