Microsoft’s online service issues are continuing, with the latest victim being the app store for Windows Phone and apparently Windows RT.

When users try and download an app they are met with error 805a01f4 .

On Windows RT the error reports:

“This version of Windows is no longer supported by Windows Store”.

The issue appears to have been ongoing for at least 4 hours, with no response from Microsoft, and users report the usual tricks such as restarting your phone does not fix the issue.

Not all users appear to be affected, however, with many regions reporting no issue.

Update: After 2 days of downtime, WBI reports the issue, which appeared to mainly affect WP8.1 devices, now appears to be resolved.
