How to Get Android Marketplace Working on the PlayBook Video Tutorial

Android Player Marketplace

Since we saw the leak of an early build of the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook there have been quite a few users tinkering with it. We saw some screenshots of it running Android Marketplace but until now there were no instructions. For the brave BlackBerry PlayBook owners who like to tinker there is now a tutorial video put up by HaTaX from CrackBerry forums detailing how to get the Marketplace to work. You already need to have the Android Player sideloaded for this to work but you can find quite a few tutorials for that.

Check out the directions at CrackBerry forums and blog and the instructional video below. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

  1. It works!

  2. UPDATE!!! The information herein and in the video are NO LONGER VALID.
    RIM “force” updated the Operating System to intentionally “break” this capability. They say they will provide a RIM solution “real soon now”; and they been saying that for several MONTHS now.
    The Playbook tablet is useful to Blackberry phone owners via “Bridge” therein; but not very useful or COST EFFECTIVE if you are looking for Android Market capabilities.
    Get a G-TABLET; same hardware and you can Honeycomb it easily.
