Android App Working On os2
UPDATE: All apps are being shared through a spreadsheet look below
Go to http://bit.ly/apk2bar and see if the application is listed
If the application is not listed, or you need to update the status of an existing application, please fill out the form at http://bit.ly/apk2bar-form
If the application is listed, check the status
If the application is listed mutliple times, make sure to check the status from the most recent timestamp
When you want to update the status of an application, you will need to resubmit it
Submissions cannot, and will not, be edited.
UPDTAE: Our good friend HaTaX has made it a lot easier for people unfamiliar with the command prompt to convert apks. Here is the link, basically download his zip file and read the readme file, yea you have to read it sorry.
Hey all so I decided to do some messing around and figured out how to convert an apk to bar and load it onto my playbook running os2. I converted Enterprise Remote Desktop and sideloaded it via DDPB installer.
I've attached the bar if you want to try using RDP. Let me know if you want me to try to convert other apk's. I will be trying netflix and skype next. Atleast we are getting somewhere. I am sure Hatax will be able to achieve way more than I have but its a start so lets start loading apps again.
UPDATE: It seems if you had the previous Android App Player at any point you may have to do a security wipe.
UPDATE: INSTRUCTIONS TO TRY SIGNING APPS YOURSELF
To create and sign your own bar files from apk (android apps).
1. Go here: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/android/tool and download the Comman-line tools.
2. Go here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html and download the java jdk.
3. Go here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html and download the android sdk. Once installed make sure to download the 2.3.3 ver 10 update.
Please make sure you install Android APK 2.3.3 API 10 Revision 2. You will see it in the download list.
4. Register for your own signing keys.
5. Extract the download from the command line tools to a folder, I created folder c:\apkbar
6. To make things easy I would install the android sdk to c:\apkbar or copy it to c:\apkbar because you have to point to it in the command prompt.
7. Create a folder to save your apk files in, I used c:\apk
8. Open the command prompt and browse to your Command line tools folder, in my case it was c:\apkbar\
9. Type the following:
apk2bar <location of apk> <location of sdk> -t <location to save bar>
if you used my folders it would be:
apk2bar c:\apk\kindle.apk c:\apkbar\sdk\ -t c:\apk
10. Next we are going to sign the bar file, while still in the command prompt type the following:
batchbar-signer <location of bar file> <location of development key> <passcode> <passcode>
11. Install via DDPB ( http://www.filearchivehaven.com/2011...dpb-installer/ )
