Install Android applications on BlackBerry 10

Now I have the new BB Z10 in my hands. It is white (I loved black), because we see that those of Vodafone were used up the black, but the truth is that I do not, like me and even more white. Probably I stay with this.

I have already talked last month BB10 when I taught the people in my company Blackberry. Now that I have in hand I realize it's a cane.

Those who have all the Blackberry life we realize the big jump that have with this device. They wanted I liken much to the iPhone and Samsung S3. But in this post I will not speak of the virtues of gossip, because I spoke of its benefits in the previous post. Today I will talk about the second thing I've done with him. The first was to upgrade the OS because surprisingly there is already a new update, the 10.0.10.82. After downloading the OS and enlist email accounts, Tweeter and so I proceeded to see how it could carry Android applications in BB10, and I started by Apalabrados, in deference to Maximum Cavazzani , and because my wife wants to crush me with Apalabrados in your Android ...

How we can install Android apps on our BB10?

The first thing to consider is that not all Android applications can run on BB10. Blackberry employee with whom I met last month I talked about that over 90% of Android applications run in the new Blackberry. I work with that I'm content 70%. Which I downloaded to test if they have worked, so this looks good. BB10 evidently still have the BlackBerry App Word, so it is advisable if we seek an application, you look first at the Blackberry .-

The first thing is to get off the internet or somehow get the .APK file containing the Android application you want to convert to BB10. On the Internet you have thousands of websites where you can download these files .APK.

Once you've found the file you wish to install the application, you must convert the files to Android .APK .BAR extension in files with extension. The .BAR are installable files or programs that use the Playbook, but are also compatible with BB10. I said that in summer the Playbook would be updated to BB10, but if you can not wait this manual also serves to install Android applications on our Playbook.

To convert .APK files you can use this web http://apk2bar.unker.net/ that transform BAR so we can put them in our BB10. You will see that in this web have many files and uploaded by other users, so that maybe have not upload it because they are already there. Look version if the website is the most updated or vice versa. So you only have to give the button that says Upload .APK file and you choose the APK file that you have downloaded and transform it to BAR. After what you descargáis to your computer because that BAR file is the one you must climb the BB10.

Now we just have to install the program on your computer that shall bring the BAR file in your BB10. It's called DDSP Installer and you can download it from here .

  8. Now click on Add and choose the converted file you downloaded Android. Check that you have selected in the list and click Install
  9. A new window where you will see the progress of the upload files to the BB10 100% when finished close the window opens.
  10. Now he goes again to the BB10 Security and Privacy> Development mode and switches off the development mode. Remove the lock password if you want Security and Privacy> Device Password
