LocalBar2 Brings On Device Sideloading (With Proxy) Back to BlackBerry 10

LocalBar BB10

Some of you may remember LocalBar by Yohanes and its ability to sideload apps onto your PlayBook without a desktop. BlackBerry closed that loop but the developers found a way around it using a proxy. Now the OSBB team has decided to recompile LocalBar for BlackBerry 10 and the PlayBook and bring back the fun. Sadly it still requires a proxy to fool the device into thinking its a computer sideloading the app but it does work. You just need to install the proxy or install Localbar on your PlayBook or separate BlackBerry 10 device.

Check out the details on how to get up and running on OSBB. Keep in mind this is not for the faint of heart.

  1. I’ve been waiting for this! I will be testing it out ASAP.

  2. Seems that it always crashes when using proxy mode. I logged on the proxy server 3 separate connections during the attempt to sideload.
