secret sidekick applications

secret sidekick applications

i cooked up a neat how-to for this month’s popular science magazine, how-to get new apps on your otherwise locked up sidekick. rss readers, other messaging clients, movie time apps. the world is yours mang! well, after you sign up for an unlock key, download the sdk, load the apps…

Comments

  1. Bill O'neill says:

    Looks like Danger has removed the link for the unlock key :(

  2. Jesse says:

    key unlocking has been removed for several weeks now.. I guess I am turning off my Tmobile service and getting a smartphone

  3. Faentur says:

    I hate to break the news to you, but this procedure is dead. I signed up 2 weeks ago, and the key url has been offline since. The procedure has been changed, now in order to get a key you have to apply individually and you application will be reviewed. No more just getting a device key just because you want to install apps. I’m hoping for a hack that gets around this. The published hack actually killed itself. It became too popular. :(

    My problem was that I waited to actually get my Sidekick II before I went to sign up for a key….

    oh well.

    your contract says you get 14 days to return it.
    I don’t know if its the same type of unlock key that T-mobile will give subscribers. Just like they do for other GSM phones.

    also will this hack work with the orig ColorSidekick??

  5. S18R4S8 says:

    Danger nuked free third party app uploads because their wireless providers have exclusive rights to sell the same apps to us.

    (Sarcasm) Wasn’t this how Palm took over the market?

  6. RPG says:

    They’re not shutting it down, they’re just redesigning it so that they don’t have most of the people just asking about how to throw ringtonez on their phone. They want to keep it a community.

  7. Henryo says:

    My question is if any of these fabulous apps will be available to us NERDS who like to spend $$$ on little gadgets like these?

    I have a SideKick II and saw this posting through powerpage.org. After reading the article from “HOW2″, I wish I would’ve been more of hacker than a graphic designer.

    Just curious.

    I was shocked to learn that the sidekick
    would be locked down in this fashion. Even
    my lowly Nokia 3100 can have apps loaded on it
    via serial cable.

    Thanks for the warning. I for one will
    NOT be buying a sidekick, because of the
    stunt the manufactur and/or T-Mobile pulled
    with this device.
