    I was good on all this stuff through the Storm 2 but now with the Z10, I have to learn all over again.

    Did a lot of searching the forums, figured out how to sideload using BB10 Sideloading Tool.

    About half the apps successfully converted from APK to BAR *and* work perfectly on my Z10 now.

    The other half don't work.

    My questions are:

    (1) To sideload onto Z10 running current stock official VZW OS 10.1.0.2039, which Android OS version of these APKs should I be trying to get my hands on to give the app the best chance of running properly on my Z10? Or does that not matter?

    (2) I downloaded and unzipped the Android SDK. When I run SDK Manager, only certain components are installed. (See screenshot) Are there any other components I can install that will improve the odds an APK will successfully convert to BAR and work properly?

    Versions and SDK components question-screenhunter_03-nov.-06-11.55.jpgVersions and SDK components question-screenhunter_02-nov.-06-11.55.jpg

    I apologize if this has been clearly answered and I missed it -- thanks to anyone willing to help...!

    I was going to install 10.2 leak but I read that version closes the Mobile Hotspot workaround.

    1) Android 2.3.3 (API 10) and below.

    2) Installing the SDK does not improve your odds of compatibility UNLESS you are performing APK to BAR conversions using Eclipse (IDE), the BlackBerry Online Tool, or Command-line tools for Android apps (in which case you enable Android 2.3.3 (API 10)).
