BlackBerry Android Runtime available for download in BlackBerry World

In an interesting move that stems from some issues users on OS 10.2 are having, BlackBerry has made the BlackBerry Android Runtime available for download. Apparently some installs of OS 10.2 aren't carrying over the Android Runtime properly, so users are having problems when trying to run certain Android applications.

When attempting to open an Android application on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone running BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.0.x, the application attempts to open and then closes on its own. This same application functioned properly prior to upgrading to BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.0.x.

The Android Runtime in BlackBerry world is version 10.2.0.132 and the one on most versions of OS 10.2 is 10.0.2.131, so this isn't very far off at all. It does look like it's only available for the Z10 and Q10 as well. 

So this is a great deal on multiple levels. Obviously it allows anyone having Android issues to get fixed up, but also because down the road, BlackBerry can ultimately put out updates to the Android Runtime through BlackBerry World as they see fit (possibly). That means we wouldn't be reliant on carrier updates for a new version of the Android Runtime. Important to some, maybe not so much for others.

If you're one of the handful having issues, head to the link below to download the updated runtime. Keep in mind that if you're not affected you won't really gain anything from this either, so best to just move along.

The fix came super quick too.

Indeed. Nice to see BBRY reacting quickly to something, and even finding an easy way for users to implement it via BB World.

This is how you CB10, son!

jcbrunson

... and was yanked super quick too. It is no longer available in Blackberry World. Bummer.

EDIT: it looks like you can only access the link from your Z10/Q10, not from a PC web browser. I can access the app in Blackberry World from the Playbook. Maybe this is another way to update the Playbook as well...

jvinp

Available for me.

heads up to those who are trying to download this from your phone. Turn off desktop mode in the browser, otherwise it will come up as not available when clicking on the link above.

I didn't have any issues but I found that Skype was a little glitchy; I downloaded the update and Skype now runs perfectly. Great idea on BlackBerry's part to be able to update it as an app independently of the carriers.; also, I am glad to see how quickly they've rolled out fixes for BBM cross platform and now the Android runtime.

Posted via my Z10

jhimmel

Very interesting, as this is a large portion of BB10 that can bypass carrier delays. And to the question above, it will surely change your unlocked version to locked. That's why I'll leave mine alone. I am not having issues anyway.

Pete The Penguin

According to some, the version in BlackBerry World is unlocked.

Can anyone confirm this? I'd love to be able to sideload Candy Crush using an official install (and no debug token stuff).

I had unlocked android runtime and installed this runtime from BB World. All my sideloaded android apps stopped working. Had to reinstall the unlocked one from elsewhere.

Yes! Like Instagram, the official app! Don't want to sideload it.

That's pretty much what Google's doing, so I don't see why not. They just put out a camera update for the Moto X in the Play Store, for example.

mnc76

Yup. Soon the majority of the Android functionality will be updatable via Google Play and allowing everyone to bypass the molasses-slow carriers.

Posted via CB10

jay_men

They should follow this route like what Google seems to be doing with their apps on Android. Less of an excuse for these carriers to delay these updates and better for the customer to get them more quickly.

Pete The Penguin

Google are doing it to control Android, not benefit end users.

whatsever

This also can means you can install it but maybe in the future also uninstall it ?Is this a beginning with a BB10 OS without android runtime but that you can download it :)

Pete The Penguin

You can't uninstall it as it's not an app. You can sideload a different runtime over it though.

My bad, I was clicking on the link from my desktop versus z10.

BBZ10wannabe

@Adam "The Android Runtime in BlackBerry world is version 10.2.0.132 and the one on most versions of OS 10.2 is 10.0.2.131, so this isn't very far off at all. It does look like it's only available for the Z10 and Q10 as well. "

10.2 and 10.0 do seem quite far apart in my opinion but perhaps it was a typo? Perhaps you meant 10.2.0.131 and 10.2.0.132? That would seem quite minor.

Pete The Penguin

According to my sources, it's the 575 runtime from 10.2.1.x

mavsguy842

This sounds a lot like what Google is doing by taking a lot of the functionality of Android out of OS builds and putting it into apps that they can update through Google Play at-will. Google is doing it so customers don't have to wait for slow manufacturers, if BlackBerry is doing it w/the bigger picture in mind it's so it doesn't have to wait for slow Carriers. Smart moves by both.

Pete The Penguin

Google are pushing major updates in order to control Android.

BlackBerry should continue to modularize the OS and release updates to as many components as possible OUTSIDE of the carrier release cycle.

Blackberry should take a note from Google and decouple most of the OS like this. Keep everything out of the hands of the carriers and keep OS changes minimal and boring.

I have to hand it to Michael Clewley, as one of the people who did have the Android bug when I updated, he made me feel confident that it was being fixed.

He listened to our tweets and asked us questions to help the dev team trouble shoot the problem and let us know that they would be able to deliver the patch via BlackBerry World. I can honestly say, I respect Mr. Clewley more than any other public face at the company. He communicates clearly and delivers.

I had the 641 unlocked runtime working fine, but I installed this over it just for kicks. Works great. Definitely feels faster than what I had. I don't think its unlocked because the one app that I had converted without a debug token won't launch. But it runs so smooth, I'm keeping it.

P.S. If you're having trouble loading apps, hold the volume up and down keys to reset. Worked for me.

Holding volume up & down to reboot takes too much time. Holding the top lock button will give a quicker access to reboot.

I have a Blackberry Z30 STA100-2 running 10.2.0.1791 and i can't download the runtime, saying "device not compatible" Anyway to downgrade or something. I'm with Rogers.

So just wiped my device and restored my data and still does not work...i had a 8mb update after i wiped so that installed but still no skype or flipboard.

Guess i just cant use skype or flipboard on my z10 and no i cannot start fresh as i have quite a few things on my phone that i need.

That is the game I really want. But I don't know how to get it. I don't understand all this side loading. I don't even know what version of Android runtime I have or if I need to upgrade it. Any chance you could walk a techno dummy through it?

Right just tried this and pretty much all my side loaded apps such as candy crush, viber, fruit ninja have stopped working regardless off the v+ v- reset procedure.

Paper toss works.

Since the update I have noticed that the phone is lighting quick and all the official apps off BlackBerry World open so much quicker!!!!

Impressed but p*ssed my side loaded stuff don't work :(

Hi, what did I do wrong? Because I downloaden.Afterwards lot of apps were broken after that.

I was force to restore everything. :(, BBQ10

Your side loaded apps will NOT work as this run time is LOCKED.

Reload your device with an unlocked runtime.

That's what's I'm about to do with mine as the official runtime has stopped my side loaded apps from working :'(

It's far from crap. It's just that you're used to an inferior product up to now. This OS is just that...Out Standing! Granted, the company was mismanaged badly, but BB10 is the best OS in the game, period!

Now that I've installed this (I'm running 10.2) all of my sideloads no longer work properly. They all open up to a load screen (similar to when I've just restarted my phone), and then when they load all the way they just close and I get brought back to the homescreen. This happens every time.

Thoughts?

Try doing multiple restarts. Launch a few android apps each time. Took me three times before they all started working but now the run time is smoking. Very happy.
