I will leave the rest of the post up for whoever but you wont be disappointed with the new OS leak.
I will also note that after you've installed, if you get mobile data issues or wifi connection issues, you gotta reload the OS. On my second install everything worked perfectly.
the link to it is here: https://mega.co.nz/#!35xzDIxZ!flJ1ox...eNLHV5ej1e1YbY
I haven't had the time to install or test this newer version yet but so far it seems the people who are getting runtime crashes where the blue loading bar appears frequently no longer has that happen after the first load on boot. HOWEVER, based on READING THE THREAD, some people are still having the same network/connection issues as this one so hard to say how much better it is. Below is tested one.
> no need to deal with debug token and such anymore!! (If you had it installed, please remove before installing this one)
> no more bar at the bottom!! (its optional. it can choose to hide or show by swiping down from the top bezel)
so far, all my android sideloads have worked (you can convert them here PlayBook .apk to .bar converter)
if links dont work, try here APK to Bar Online Converter
instagram (new 4.2.1; keyboard now works btw!)
candy crush (this is the newest version. 1.18.0)
redwood credit union,
ebay (from blackberry world),
skype (from blackberry world),
plants vs zombies 2,
line (wifi calling works, just received a call from vietnam to cali. without app on, i got a ring and call was good),

i personally use this: Sachesi: Firmware Extractor, Searcher and Installer (no need to even deal with development mode [BIG THANKS to @xsacha]
it is perfectly ok to install over previous runtime.
******** just want to make sure you reboot after installation (hold vol+ and vol- for about 20 seconds until phone reboots)
and you MIGHT want to uninstall/reinstall current droid apps? i didnt and they worked so it might not be necessary but if theres trouble, you could start with that
NOTE: those of you with network connection issues, it seems to just need a hard reboot and some time to settle before sideloaded apps work. test it out! let people know what else works!
apps i've tried personally that dont work/crashes so far: starbucks; BoA; KAT; netflix

so far, i have not noticed any performance hits. the previous runtime i was using was the 10.2.0.1767 one and between that and this, the only difference so far is that its unlocked. there feels like a better smoothness overall but its hard to quantify. I will certainly post more if i find out more.
as for using the native sharing menu, you'll have to give me an example. none of the apps i use seem to need that?

Thanks for reply.
I am also on previously leaked unlocked run time so just trying to figure out the differences.
And for sharing menu, for example I have economic times as android port app from where I like to share articles etc to my various social accounts, BBM etc which currently we can't do.
Similarly, we can't post pics etc from the phone or other app to android ported app like Instagram.
I have a lot of such apps which have content to share or vice versa but can't use the native share menu to do that.

How to sideload Android applications to the BlackBerry Q10 | CrackBerry.com
your device does not need to be "unlocked" but most of those methods will require you to enable development mode. settings>security>development mode>on
once thats on, from the zip file, you will need to install both bar files (they are named blahblahblah.bar) onto your device.
after that, press and hold both volume up and volume down rockers on the device until the phone reboots.
once its loaded up, you can proceed to sideload converted android apps without the debug token.
in app> swipe down from top to hide the bar at the bottom. to bring it back, swipe down again from top to unhide bar.
just wanted to put it out there:
with the help of this thread and the already converted bar here, as you can see on my Q10, this game works. i played through level 1 to try it.
note: this is mainly for the Z10 and Z30 since on the q10, the accuracy is a little off. you have to touch a tiny bit above the point where you actually want to hit. its annoying and is a dealbreaker for the q10 but on candybar devices, i imagine it works great.
