    Default Can BB10 support Android 4.1 Jellybean?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Herman from Toronto, Canada. I'm a long time reader, first time poster. I have my Z10 pre-ordered and ready to retire my 9900 but Tuesday seems so far away still. I'm sure my Canadian brothers and sisters would agree.

    Anyway, I want to hear from anyone who is well-versed on BB10/Android and can comment on BB10's ability (or not) to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich or Jellybean.

    If Android is open-source, isn't it fair game for someone to port it over to BB10?

    The Android runtime environment that runs ported or side-loaded Android apps is 2.3 Gingerbread. As for installing Android OS on the device, that's beyond my level of tech savvy lol

    Short answer NO.
    (if i understood you correct, you want to put the jelly bean OS on a BB10 device).
    If rim were to allow them maybe but there is no point in them doing that ....

    As said in the other reply you can run some android apps but right now its at Android 2.3 compatibility...

    Nice for people that have one but didn't get an app in and approved for the trade-in program.
