Unlocked Android Runtime for BlackBerry 10 Appears Online

jelly_blackberrySo, one of the biggest things that helps us love our BlackBerry 10 devices, is the Android runtime that is baked in.  It allows us to use converted Android apps, but there has always been a drawback.  BlackBerry has set limitations to how the runtime worked, or which apps it would let us use and sideload.  We then posted how with using a Debug token you could run almost any app, but it was a lengthy process.  Not truly user friendly for the average owner.  Well, SCRATCH all that.  Last night, the Berry Leaks team released an UNLOCKED version of the new Jelly Bean 4.2 runtime for BlackBerry OS 10.2.  Candy Crush? YES. Instagram 4.2? YES. Vine? YES!  Now there is a hitch, you must be running a leaked version of BlackBerry 10.2, and must know how to sideload.  I would say if you have no way to occupy your Sunday, this could be the answer!  Ready? Here is the link.  Please note, that not ALL ported apps will work.  Some need Google Framework, which unfortunately we do not have.  Let us know what you have running below!

  1. Silly question: If this doesn’t give us the ability to root and/or insert the Google Framework – does it really give us any advantage over the DebugToken method? Honestly, once you do the first couple of steps (which are only required once … per month), sideloading any app with that method really takes about 15 seconds.

    • If you can test it out with Bank of America App and it happens to work this way, then the unlocked method is much better than the Debug Token.
      Not to mention the debug token was a bit buggy with the latest 10.2 releases, not that I tried it but from others experiences.
      Hey, if you can test it out please report back, ok?

      • Many apps such as 7-11, Dunkin Donuts, etc. And i am guessing BofA as well, fail because they rely on the Google Maps API. I don’t see how this would help that. I have had a lot of success with sideloading on 10.2 – many apps such as Feedly which suddenly worked on 10.2.

  2. They’ll figure it out sooner or later.
