    My Passport Silver was upgraded to 10.3.3 last night.

    I've downloaded the Cobalt 'apk' files on to my device from Mega.

    However when trying to install the Google Play Services" & "Google system account" apps by following the directions provided the URL below, it starts by showing 'processing' and the a few seconds later it shows the message "Unable to Install the app" and closes.

    It's the same result for the following cobalt files:

    com.google.android.gms.8.4.89. ...

    com.google.android.gms.9.8.77. ...

    com.googele.android.gsf.login-4.4.4...

    com.googele.android.gsf.login-4.3.3...

    Has anyone successfully installed the above Cobalt files after the 10.3.3. upgrade?

    The Google ID and Play Store apps install fine, but of course they're useless without the above files having been previously installed.

    BTW: I also have the Blackberry Android Runtime installed from BBW.

    Given that 10.3.3 has already broken Snap, if there is an issue with the Cobalt files, then Blackberry users would no longer have access to Android apps from the Google Play Store. Surely that would be an issue for many Blackberry users.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Cobalts Solution worked fine for me....

    With 10.3.3 you should not have needed to install any Runtime from BBW.... were you prompted to?

    Working fine on my end too.

    OP you'll need to delete, reboot and reinstall.

    If that fails then you may need to reload the OS and as noted you do not require the runtime fix with the latest OS...so don't install it.

    Delete everything, and reboot.

    Install 4.3.3 and login.
    Install 2.8 and register.
    Install Google Play Services v9.
    Update 4.4.4 over 4.3.3, but don't open when done.
    Install Google Play Store.
    Done.
