Just a day after the release of ChevronWP7 , The first homebrew app (along with full source code) for Windows Phone 7 has just been released.The ChevronWP7 custom ringtone manager is now available for download.It allows you to select WMA media files of you choice which you can deploy to your device as ringtones.ChevronWP7 ringtone installer, in fact, creates the XAP package compatible with Windows Phone 7 and after that a XAP application is used to deploy this package to Windows Phone 7.
Installation notes from the official site:
The application has two components
* Desktop application – used to build a custom XAP package with 5 custom ringtones you select from your computer(Requires .NET 4.0 Framework)
* XAP application – to be deployed to your WP7 to install custom ringtones to the system
* Ringtones have to be in the WMA format at 48KHz as required by the OS. We recommend using Expression Encoder 4(free) to transcode any MP3s.
* Currently, to deploy the XAP you will have to use the Microsoft “Application Deployment” tool with the Windows Phone 7 Developer SDK. In the future, we hope to make available a standalone deployment solution for homebrew apps.
