    After installing 10.2.1.1055 on my Z10 STL 100-1 my phone has become a revolution among my friends..!! why..?? take a look at these screenshots..!!

    1st: Dual Standby screens..i.e. two os running at the same time..!!
    Advantage Dual OS!-1st.jpg

    2nd: OS info.. one is BB10 OS and the other is Android jellybean..
    Advantage Dual OS!-2nd.jpg

    3rd: android settings screen..!!
    Advantage Dual OS!-3rd.png

    4th: android app drawer scrolling effect..!!
    Advantage Dual OS!-4th.jpg

    5th: Dual Apps..i.e. one for BB10 and other for android..!!
    Advantage Dual OS!-5th.jpg

    6th: iMessage and iCloud..!!
    Advantage Dual OS!-6th.jpg

    in 5th screenshot i have given example of Whatsapp.. you can do it with any app..although some apps don't work in the leak...but i think would definitely work in the next official os..!!

    Note: BB10 os can read both built for BB and android apps.. but android os can't read bb apps..!!

    For installing Android launcher you can download apk of *Go Launcher EX* or *Nova Launcher* from their website or from an Android market (not google play store, I use 1 mobile market)

    For downloading android apps I use 1 mobile market..but there are no. of options available on crackberry...you can refer to them also..!!
    OR
    side load snap:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-le...-2-1-a-874153/

    NOTE: android on BB is not supporting updating android apps yet...if you try to update any app it will say *app already installed, cannot install it again*

    For apk's of IOS apps : Apple Assistant Tools

    Note: For IOS apps always use a brand new apple id as all your messages go via a 3rd party chinese server (its not yet official that's why) Do not use your apple id which you use for itunes or apple product your data may be vulnerable..!! Me or crackberry won't be responsible for any kind of your loss..!!

    EDIT:
    **********************************
    Due to fellow crackberrians I got more info about all this..it's mentioned in comment below by UTKARSH.. but i want the ease the pain of searching it in comments..so editing the post.. here are the 4 points he wrote..!! (Credit goes to Utkarsh for this..THANK HIM)

    "just a word of caution, using launchers have broken the Android Runtime for some people. So be sure to revert back to original launcher before uninstalling any new launchers

    1.The WIDGETS. Get some widgets on those homescreen of yours (in launcher). Like calengoo, evernote, recorder, etc

    2. Login using your google account:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-an...ml#post9453720
    Login to your google apps after installing the Google Play / Account apks given in this link. Get GMail to work and include its widget.

    3. Login into GMaps using the apk provided, and sync your starred location, get google voice navigation, and update your location to google servers (location history reporting). v6.4 for google maps works for me.

    4. Make your phone speak back to you, make full use of Pico TTS installed on your phone, download any Text to speech client (few kb in size) and make them speak your documents and texts using Android's builtin Voice. Use Moon Reader apk to read out your ebooks. I have been trying to install new voices, but right now, none are working."
    ********************** *****************

    P.S.: .i know its just Android runtime and not THE ENTIRE OS...BUT having android rumtime is more cooler than having the option to choose which os to boot...that way we would have only one os running at a time...but now we have the power as if two different OS are running together..!! And hence the name of the thread..!!

    As it is my 1st thread I apologize for any inconvenience..please let me know if it is..
    Hope you like my thread..!! THANK YOU..!!

    BB10 have inbuilt Android os running back of bb10 os..by installing Launcher you just bring it in front and make it visible..!!

    A saw an article about iMessage on Android, I think all your messages go via a 3rd party chinese server or something

    EDIT: Here we go
    iMessage unofficially comes to Android, needs a big health warning (update: pulled)

    Actually we don't have a dual OS. It's the runtime that is integrated in the OS and gets integrated more tightly with each update. If we really had a dual OS we could have chosen which OS to boot up with at startup. Otherwise you could say that the PlayBook has a dual OS too.
    But I agree, this runtime is wicked cool with all the abilities it already has!

    I kinda agree with this.
    Its just like an OS with a virtual machine inside.
    But this one is different. This android runtime is meant to handle android apps only, (I think).

    Its pretty cool though

    I totally agree with you mate..i know its a runtime...that's why in the os info screenshot it says *android player* BUT don't you think having android rumtime is more cooler than having the option to choose which os to boot...that way we would have only one os running at a time...*that sucks for me* but now we have the power as if two different OS are running together..!! *way cool for me atleast* and hence the name of the thread..!!

    just download the apk of the app you want to install from any website or market (other than Google play store).. go to the download location..click on the file... and android app installer would start..!! enjoy..!!

    Snap just shows apps from Google play of entire America..and majority of the apps are Canadian apps... that's why i would prefer 1-mobile market.. where there is a category called as *Local top* and *Local free* etc (for users residing in rest of the world).. anyways thanks for sharing mate..!!

    No problem I just do not trust the other app stores. Seems weird to me that if a google play (apk directly from the play store) app will not work on my phone yet if I get it from 1mobile it does there has to have been a change in the apk file. I am not a programmer just a thought I had.

    Anyway very cool theread here!!

    Running android launcher, search for this on crackberry and you will see that we all already know about this, nothing new, just saying. (http://forums.crackberry.com/general...-2-1-a-878880/)

    Dual OS? more like blackberry running an android app, nothing new here either.

    Cool? It sure is!
