I have an HTC HD7 which had been sitting in my drawer for 4 years, it's running Windows Phone 7.8 and I want to install some apps on it through the Marketplace app but it requires me to sign in with a Microsoft Windows Live ID account, but I can't sign-in on it, did Microsoft drop the servers?
When I enter my outlook email and password and tap "sign in" it says
Connecting to Windows Live... on the status bar and after less than a minute I get this error:
We're hacing a problem connecting to Windows Live. Make sure you have good reception, If you do, the problem may be on the other end. Wait a little wile and try again.
Marketplace app can be opened and it shows apps and games but I need to be signed-in with a Windows Live ID account to download from it. Is there any workaround or hack or solution so I can install some apps through the Marketplace or with Zune?
Edit: I've got a Dynamics 2.2 ROM on my phone which means my phone is fully unlocked, I can deploy apps etc.. Is there any hack to download apps from the Marketplace? (On phone or from the computer.)
