    Hi all,

    I was using official 10.2 release for my VZW Q10. I jumped on the 10.2.1.1055 leak and everything looks great, however my android bars, whem loaded via Chrome, do not work. They simply freeze my device. I tried to download an apk direct from browser as well as via amazon app store and 1mobile, but neither completed install after saving to device, but rather they just hung up at "processing", and that didn't work either. Because everyone seems to have nothing but good things to say about this leak related to Android apps, I must be missing something. Can anyone help?

    For context, I wiped device and tried again but go tthe same result. So I wiped and reinstalled the official version and unlocked runtime bar.

    Can anyone see where I might have gone wrong? I'd like to try again. Should I NOT install the bars that i used for 10.2.0? Should I create new ones? Should I install the unlocked runtime for 1055 as well? thanks in advance all, youre doing amazing work.

    I'd remove the bars you sideloaded, then try downloading an APK onto your device and then try installing it. I have had 0 issues doing it this way, check the link in my signature for some APK's and the thread regarding them, I'm sure we can figure out whats going on!

    thanks much. Should I wipe the device first before reinstalling 1055, or would I be ok installing over my current OS and apps?

    Before you reinstal 1055, you might want to try deleting the bars, and trying the APK Method.

    When I load a new OS, I wipe, load the new os, then wipe again for good measure.

    So should I try APK from 10.2.0? Thats whats loaded on my device right now. I can delete the BARs but they wont load directly unless on 1055, correct?

    I mistunderstood, I thought you had 1055 loaded on your phone.

    Since you have 10.2 on your phone, i would suggest backing up your info you want, wipe, load 1055, wipe, restore the data you want, and instal APKs

    correct ( I don't know if this will effect it honestly, I just know that when I loaded the new OS I didn't bother with a debug token or attempt to reload any bars, i just installed the APK's directly.

    Sort of relating to the topic:

    If a backup of application data is performed prior to upgrading to 10.2.1, then after the upgrade I install the APKs rather than BARS of my apps (same version #s) and restore application data, will I get my save game data back? (ie Candy crush)

    That I do not know, I'd suggest asking that in the sideload forum as well to see if anyone has an idea.

    After many attempts, I finally have the leak working properly,

    I wasn't able to restore, nothing, tried settings, apps separately, side-loaded Google maps... there was always something else not working...
    ...either i couldn't add any account on the phone, either i couldn't load any APK's

    well moral of the story, I started with a blanks device, I just loaded my contacts via "CONTACT X" (which is great btw), and now everything works perfectly, have all Android Appstores installed and got all my side-loaded apps back on!

    This leak is great, slightly laggy on certain screens but it's a great upgrade, a lot of small details appearing!! very pleased with it and where BB10 is going
