    Default How To: Install The Full Android Market On The Blackberry Playbook With Root

    I saw this on another site and im not sure if i can post links to other blogs on here so i just copied it over.

    I have not gotten a chance to try this so im not sure how well i all works. So enjoy.

    Those of you with a Blackberry Playbook (although there are not really that many of you) that are looking for a way to increase your app catalog 10 fold can now root and install the Android Market directly on the tablet. We have the directions below. Just remember, RIM can and WILL find a way to patch this so if you want to keep it you will not be able to update to their latest Playbook software until another root method is found. Instructions after the jump!

    How to get the Android Market working on the BlackBerry PlayBook:
    1. Install the 2.0 beta on your PlayBook.
    2. Root your PlayBook using the Dingleberry tool found at dingleberry.it
    3. Download the Google apps package fromhttp://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Latest_Version/Google_Apps
    4. Install and launch an Android app packaged as a .bar file in order to set up the Android system. I would recommend installing a launcher app of some kind since you will need one to launch the Market and related apps. A bunch can be found at PlayBook BARs
    5. Log into your PlayBook as root with an scp client (eg: WinSCP for Windows). Copy the system folder in the Google apps download to the root of your PlayBook and merge it with the system folder there.
    6. Open up a root ssh shell and remove “/system/app/SetupWizard.apk” (this can by done by typing in “mv /system/app/SetupWizard.apk /system/app/SetupWizard.apk.bak”.
    7. Kill the running Android player “cd /apps/sys.android.XXXX.ns/native/scripts” (XXXX will be different for each device) and run “./android-player-cmd.sh kill-android-core.sh”
    8. Launch a launcher app of some kind. Start up Android Market (or any other Google app), enter your account details and it will start working. This trick will also install Google Chat and a few other goodies. The Android Market works and will install things after you do this.

    Did you follow the instructions to the t? Just saying "is no working" isn't giving the forum community much to work with.

    Yup - I'm able to connect to devuser without issue, I try as Root and the ssh.exe command box comes up blank then closes - no visible error

    That's what I'm running; I'm just unsure what credentials people are using to log in. I'm assuming the password is the OS password, but what's the username? I've tried nothing, my tablet name, root, etc but nothing seems to be working.
