    Colbalt's services no longer work properly. Uninstall it all and just download WhatsApp from here: http://whatsapp.com/android

    If it does, just tap outside the box and it should all work fine.

    You can use Yalp - https://f-droid.org/repo/com.github....lpstore_46.apk but you'll still need to test out the apps by downloading and not all are going to work.

    You can download and install this on your device: https://apkpure.com/yalp-shop-fork/c...akin.yalpstore . This is a Google Play Store client. You can try any apk that requires android 4.3 or less. There are other android apk stores that you can install also, including APKmirror, APKpure, F-Droid etc but the FEWER android apps (and store apps) you have, the better your device will run.

    I'm using F-Droid but it doesn't show me any app at all, even if i search for it , same goes for Yalp
    EDIT : after system reboot, F-Droid now shows apps, can't find any app i had in mind, but works noneless.

    F-Droid is only for free and open-source apps that do NOT require Google Play Services. You may not find many useful apps there but they are generally easy on BB10's limited android runtime. For example, if you want a YouTube front-end check out NewPipe Legacy.

    I see, APKpure also works and gives me some play store apps, that even works!
