I finally got around to cleaning up the code and building a release. Features:
- Easy WiX built MSI installer
- Full provider supporting copy/move/dir etc. (including Storage Card)
- Just run "Add-PSSnapIn PSMobile" and switch to the "Mobile:" drive which is auto-mounted
- Copy files to/from device with ConvertTo-WMFile and ConvertFrom-WMFile respectively
- Ability to invoke-item against remote files (sometimes remote files can be invoked locally with -Local switch)
"Invokability" (visible via format-list) is determined via registry checks on local desktop AND remote device registry. Two additional atttributes are available for file modes: "i" and "m" for InRom and RomModule respectively.
Attributes can be manipulated just like regular FileInfos, where permitted.
All Cmdlets and definitions (common parameters omitted for brevity, erroraction etc):

Definition : ConvertFrom-WMFile [-Path] <String> [-Destination] <String> [-Force] [-Verbose] ... [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]

- copy/move/delete within the mobile filesystem between storage card and internal memory
- browsing of device registry
