'Unlocked' Android Runtime for BlackBerry 10 leaked

So, with a title like that you're probably wondering what exactly an 'Unlocked Android Runtime' is. Well, the Android runtime on BlackBerry 10 has certain limitations placed on it by BlackBerry so that they can control what things can and cannot be done within the Android environment. In the past, folks who sideloaded had to make use of debug tokens in order to get Android sideloads running better but no more. 

With this version of the Android runtime, the limitations have been removed and apps that previously worked better with a debug token no longer need them. Long story short, this will improve how your Android apps run and it reduces some of the hassle involved with sideloading Android apps onto your BlackBerry 10 device. The file itself consists of two .bar files, which you'll need to sideload using your preferred method.

Like all things, you do this at your own risk. Although it's been tested by various folks before release, it is in no way official and we're not responsible for what happens with your device should you decide to load it. As for supported devices, all BlackBerry 10.2 devices are supported here including all you STL100-1 users. Have questions? Looking for the download? Head on into the CrackBerry Forums for more info.

It's that a fact than only works on 10.2?

Yes. Don't do it unless you have 10.2. It will kill all Android apps ported, side loaded etc.

Oh good, even easier piracy.

No. You still have to acquire the apk or bar file. So you can side load a free app really easy, which isn't piracy, or buy the apk file and convert it to bar. Which also isn't piracy.

If you're getting it from google play, it's piracy. It's sad that things have come to this.

Android is a open os platform, can't perform piracy from a open source platform "facepalm". Maybe they should lock down like itoy if they don't want people to sideload!

Has humanity's IQ fallen so low that one cannot differentiate "piracy" and "fair use"?

BlackBerry didn't make an emulator or something. The Android runtime is as Android OS an Android OS can get.

No, wait, Electronic Arts, is that you?

mikeo007

Wow...likening fair use to piracy. You may not want to bring IQ up after a statement like that.

meltbox360

When the app is free or ad supported I don't see who's getting hurt. The real piracy hurts someone. Get real. Honestly if we use ad supported apps we provide ADDITIONAL revenue. How can you liken that to piracy? I suppose you also think if I purchase an app on Android and convert it to a .bar I am pirating? Ffs...

Posted via CB10

arvind1983

judging other person's IQ? he has a valid point. If you rip off the developer's app from Google Play and side load it, It is called Piracy!

mnhockeycoach99

I'm curious how it is "piracy" if it is a free app or if you buy a paid app and then sideload it to your BB10 device versus an Android device from an OEM? It isn't like I'm trying to repackage someone else's free app and sell it to make money. Use on a BB10 device should be no different in terms of legality as that of an OEM Android device.

It might be possible that Google play terms have that restriction.

Corky Notes and Lazy Lists for BlackBerry 10 developer

bobshine

My question is where is the line to determine if it's piracy or not? Does running Windows on a Mac OS with parallel desktop considered piracy?

I know that it's not exactly the case here with BlackBerry, but with a few enhancements, BlackBerry 10 phones might even be running better than most androids phones.

Posted via CB10

mikeo007

There are ways to legally acquire windows and load it on a Mac without pirating it and breaking TOS. For Android apps, unless the APK is made available by the developer outside of Google Play, there is no legal way to get the app on a Blackberry.

monotok

I wouldn't call it piracy, it is not stealing it and not paying for it. I would call it a breach of Google's terms and conditions which is different. If I buy an app from Google Play and it's not available on BB World then I will sideload it, if you decide not that's your choice.

mikeo007

Alec Saunders of Blackberry calls it piracy.

GunzRx

Legal definition of piracy would be an act of downloading or sharing that causes some sort of loss or damage.

Care to tell how a developer would be able to show how

1. You signed a contract called Google okay tos?

2. They were damaged by you distributing a free app, with full credit providing advertisement/ additional revenue?

Obviously sites like apkmania and others exist but that's not the point.

Going to try modern combat 4 android and Arma tactics again.

Posted via CB10

mikeo007

1. You accept the TOS by using Google Play. You know, those gigantic TOS that you accept when you use virtually any piece of software?

2. You distributed my app, I now require extra server overhead.

So sad

Lumberman

You know your position would be a lot more tenable if you weren't such a smug asshole. Try just presenting your facts (which I happen to agree with) without questioning their IQ or saying how sad it is. That sort of behavior just makes you come off as a child.

eddy_berry

Blame android for the ability to save a devs APK to an SD for import. If I use a free APK from Google play or pay for one to use on my BlackBerry I do not consider that piracy. I use Bluestacks. I'd like to see how this argument would hold up in court if I have proof of my purchases. It doesn't really matter though. Because Google would have to come after me and they won't because Android users are doing worse things for years. Devs can't complain either. They can port their app over in a few hours or less and support it for less than they think and not have a problem. Not like we are all sideloading. Most BlackBerry users don't even bother.

mnhockeycoach99

Amen!! I laugh at all of the whiners calling this piracy when piracy across the Android platform in general runs rampant. I'm not condoning downloading a paid app without paying for it or trying to repackage another devs free app to make money on it, but I certainly don't consider it piracy if I'm using the app as intended, whether on a device from an actual Android OEM or from BBRY.

Posted via CB10

wincyUt

SMH. Are you guys playing lawyers now? Doesn't BlackBerry have its legal department that will ensure that implementing the "Android Runtime" is legally done? Is this argument for argument sake?

mnhockeycoach99

You seem to be awful butthurt about this. I seriously don't think Android devs are as worried about those avid BBRY users that sideload apps as they are with Android users being able to load apks of paid apps.

Posted via CB10

stabstabdie

By definition, making unauthorized copies of software, free or not, is piracy.

This is not an issue of piracy vs fair use,
It's more of an ethical debate on whether or not it is morally wrong to commit piracy when there is no actual loss occurring.

On the one side, it's not stealing because no one had been deprived of what is rightfully theirs.

On the other, there is the concept of branding. If the app does not function as intended due to its unauthorized nature, one could argue that the brand suffers, and the owner of the software incurs future losses due to this misrepresentation. Eg, oh I side loaded their last app and it wouldn't do what it was supposed to so I'm not buying this new one! They suck!

LeroyP09

It's not piracy if the dev slows the app to be used and they do. If they didn't it wouldn't be able to get. Bar or. Apk files.

Shanerredflag

I guess if the Devs port over or make a native App it will stop that argument :)

svelt

Exactly. Their own fault for not easily repackaging and porting the app over to BB world. Don't like it? Port your app, or don't develop it for Android's Google Play. That simple. Users are not at fault for their perfectly viable OS being ignored.

Any chance that this means that 10.2 will bring the Android market place ;-) I know the answer is no but it would be pretty damned cool.

3_M4N

Not the whole marketplace (in the sense of a Google Play store) but the Android run time is supposed to be updated to jellybean which means not only will we be able to run the newest versions of side loaded apps, we'll actually be able to install apps that lots of android phones won't have acess to (because they don't have jellybean support). Interesting eh?

You NEED to be using one of the 10.2 leaks for the runtime to work. It will not work on 10.1 or 10.0. And no, you do not need the debug token then.
Also you still can't record the video with this runtime and the converted bar, but you can upload from your library

lorax1284

Huge security risk or massive security liability... Which is it?

route664

lorax1284.. i guess we're the only ones concerned with security. i checked 5 pages in the forum about this leak.. and nobody asked about security.. i have a major issue with 'unlocked android runtime'. maybe blackberry isn't as dumb as we thought.. maybe they put in these android restrictions to protect our data from being stolen. if i wanted an 'unlocked android runtime' i would be on an android phone

kupfernigk

If I didn't care about security I would have an Android phone, full stop. And I don't run Android apps on BB 10 - this seems to me (to use the polite analogy, I can think of a rude one) like having a nice, clean, hygienic kitchen and bringing in a greasy hot dog from a street vendor and eating it.

Doesn't install or doesn't work? I don't know specifics but I believe it's to with Google. To use Drive you'd need to be able to sign which doesn't, as far as I know, work for any side loaded Google Apps, and apparently is also reason some apps like RBC, Canadian Tire don't work.

It's so sad to see everyone excited over apps designed for the Android platform that BlackBerry users can artificially experience through the process of side loading, with the hope that it will work on our brand new BB 10 "smartphones". BlackBerry should make something that the others want, otherwise we will all eventually go [back] to our old and happy devices such as the iPhone or Android. What a rip off. If CB is an advocate for BlackBerry fans then we should speak up against low class innovation for fear of losing more and more market share.

MCame514

Thats dumb to say. Blackberry has great apps to, we just want certain apps that we like for example super nintendo emulator that i love. I dont think iphones have it because you cant import games to your sd card which you could on the bb10. The app is also like 3$ but you could get it for free just by searching for the apk on google.

Posted via CB10

MCame514

Whats a rip off? Your telling me its a rip off because you have to convert apps to get them? At least they care enough to give us the ability to do so. We basically have like 2 app stores we could choose from and It literally takes 3seconds to find an app on google. On a side note i just got 1 of my favorite games of all time to work with this unlocked runtime, super stickman golf 2 and it works flawlessly:D

niran2k2

Why can't BlackBerry make it possible to run android os directly on their hardware without the need to sideload?

Am not too techy and have not been able to get the hang of this side loading

But I have seen some windows laptop work with android

BlackBerry can use a concept like their 'balance' whereby you can change from BlackBerry 10 directly to android os and work completely unhindered.

My 50 cents

Posted via CB10

WillieLee

Because Google still has proprietary APIs that they make available to their devs. BlackBerry can only incorporate the parts of JellyBean that Google has deemed open.

I recommended copying any pertinent files on device to memory card &/or desktop and removing memory card during the process. As it appears in many of the threads that restoring can cause problems, and after install is done security wipe is often recommend so backing up stuff manually works well.

Having been through this a few times I now have good idea what to transfer. I try not to keep anything in device memory.

It means a bit more work to reinstall and setup things again but 10.2.1371 has been worth it for me. I am beginning to for a love for my phone I haven't felt in a few years.

And here is one of the problems with bb10. The average person isn't going to mess around with sideloading and workarounds. When folks spend $600 on a device they expect it to work like a $600 device. People don't have the time, patience and knowledge to continuously troubleshoot.

Awesome! I don't get the whole debug token thing so this great. I'm now running hulu as well as some other stuff I couldn't get working before. Thanks guys at berry leaks.

So does, mean that when the 10.2 update comes out I won't need debug tokens anymore.. just to be clear. Or do I still need to install this.

Reboot after side loading if it doesn't work

great, actually it create much more app improvements

that bar at the bottom of the android apps, at first they would show up when i first started the app then go away, now after installing this runtime, they're there permanently throughout your entire usage of the app... why?

Graheem

My guess, misguided thinking by BlackBerry. Apparently it's there to stay. I hope they bring the swipe option with option to keep it there for those who may want it (why???).

looks like a permanent limitation (or better, an annoyance) just so that it forces app developers to create BB10 native versions of their android apps. if only it actually worked... the turnover is not going as fast as expected. Although I do like to mention that there is a good collection of apps (especially native) forming in BB World... constant additions everyday. And this runtime has allowed me to sideload and use many apps that didn't even open when I tried to run them before. Just wish that bar would be an option... and i do like the swipe option I used it a lot actually.

How do one upgrade if your fhone says you got the newest softwear? Why don't all the q 10's got the same softwear?

Can't even lie this is official - got everything I need and barely use my iPhone 5 now. Only thing I wish the z10 did better was updating the camera.

Yes. Why we can't have video (with audio) as good as even iPhone 4 I don't know.

I'm so freaking tempted to load the leaked 10.2 because of this! But I'm not as techy as you guys are, and too afraid that i might not be able to repair my z10 if i brick this. :(

Z10 any day

willm

Take the leap! You're as techy as you dare to be. Read the forums for a day including the how-to-recover posts just in case, carefully follow the steps outlined to sideload, and if something does go wrong, head back to the forums and this great community can walk you through recovery too.
Blackberry 10 is a lot easier and more friendly to do OS upgrades and tweaks than previous generations.

kyle636

This might sounds stupid, but how do you get this to work? It's a .bar file and it won't open. Anyone help?

I loaded the Runtime files on Z10 STL100-1 running on 10.1... please tell me how to revert?

owencool

Why never think to remove the limitations, even the reduces as well, so the apps can run smoothly on BlackBerry, without any issues. I know that if that is the case, it is better that we buy android phone, but I love my blackberry bcoz its exterior design, the hub, and etc. Also with this the security will vulnerable, if that the case, BB should create another OS with high security, and the runtime can't be patched, and let the consumer choose, what is good for them.

When I tried to side load to the. Bar files it says abort.... any ideas why. I'm running 10.2

You have to uninstall ALL Android apps first, otherwise it won't work. I bet dollars to doughnuts you have an Android app or two that you don't realize are Android ports. (There really are the rare few that run as smoothly as a native app.) Reboot your phone and then startup any "questionable" apps. If there's a progress bar at the bottom when you open it, it's an Android app. Also, if it has the back arrow followed by a blue slash "< /", it's probably an Android app. You have some app sloothing to do, my friend. Once you track it down and uninstall it, then you can successfully load up the new runtime. Enjoy!

So does instagram and viber work now?
