How to remove Google Play services dependencies with Lucky Patcher [but not Snapchat]
Lucky hasn't been supported or useful in months.
Please go HERE for a play services patcher that works.
Here is the method how to patch Google Play services dependencies directly on your Blackberry device using Lucky Patcher from ChelpuS. No Desktop PC or Mac is needed for this procedure.
- Remove signature verification that causes error "Google Play is not supported on your device"
- Support for Google Maps API v2 (provided by pre-patched Google Play services)
Please note that Lucky Patcher has the following limitations compared to GMaps Patcher:
- It cannot replace OpenStreetMaps with Google Maps
- It cannot patch Google Play services apk (com.google.android.gms)
If you need those features, you should use GMaps Patcher for Windows instead:
How to patch Android Apps depending on Google Maps and Google Play Services
Blackberry OS requirements
Your device must have Blackberry OS 10.3 or the latest version of 10.2.1 installed (thanks to Sally Mack for testing on 10.2.1).
Download and install these files on your Blackberry device before proceeding.
Lucky Patcher 5.4.3 by ChelpuS (includes Google Play services patch by cobalt) MEGA UPDATED 26.01.15
Lucky Patcher 5.4.3 by ChelpuS (includes Google Play services patch by cobalt) BitCasa UPDATED 26.01.15
DO NOT AUTOUPDATE LUCKY PATCHER AS UNPATCHED VERSIONS DO NOT WORK ON BLACKBERRY DEVICES.
You can turn of the autoupdate feature in settings.
1. Run Lucky Patcher
2. On main screen, choose Rebuild & Install
3. Find the file you want to patch
4. Tap on filename and select Rebuild
5. Choose Apk without License Verification
6. Unselect Auto Mode
7. Select Remove Dependencies
After patching completed, you can find the patched apk file on your device (not SD-Card!). Look for folder misc/android/luckypatcher/modified. Install the patched APK file and you are ready to go.
Important: Uninstall any unpatched version of the app from your device before attempting to install the patched version.
If you appreciate my work:

Just for the hell of it I tried running this on my Z10STL100-3/10.2.1.3247, and it patched without issue. I had a weird occurrence after exiting the app where it was "greyed out" on my home screen.
I restarted, patched another apk, exited, and it didn't "grey out" the second time around, so I think it's fine.
In conclusion, try it out even if you're running 10.2.1 (and report back, since cobalt didn't test on 10.2.1 ).

As Cobalt said, its important that you don't try to install the unpatched apk over a patched installation. What happens under the hood is that the installation fails and something wonky happens with the app, where it won't open properly after until you do a full uninstall then reinstall. This is especially important for users of snap to take note of.

A lot stating awesome - yet nobody confirming it actually works over a consistent set of apps? I thought Crackberrians where better than this??? All joking aside thanks to the op on this setup.
Curious if solution works for apps below:
Google Chrome for Android (& which versions)
? BlackBerry Z30 ? If it Don't Make Dollars, It don't Make Sense ?

I'm going to simplify things for you guys: if cobalt's other windows-based patcher worked for a certain app, chances are this will too.
If it didn't, chances are this won't either.
If you don't know if it worked, go into the other thread and click "search this thread" and type the name of the app you're curious about. Because it's probably been asked before. Other thread:

Thanks to Cobalt and the whole group of you involved in disseminating this information. I learn so much about increasing the functionality of my phone through the CB forums and this, and related threads, are especially useful.
