    Here's my ******** way of forcing Skype to work on my Verizon Q10 running the latest 10.2 leak:



    1. Uninstall existing Skype app (whatever version) from the phone

    2. Hard reset the phone

    3. Download Skype from BBWorld and install it . It will not work, leave it like that, do not start the app

    4. Download Skype 3.2.0.6673 apk file from here : http://speedy.sh/D92qQ/Skype-3.2.0.6673.apk

    5. Sideload the apk file on your Q10 using the Sideswype method (it will automatically convert to bar and install it)

    6. Once installed, you will have 2 Skype icons on your phone, the only one working is the one you sideloaded


    The answer to your first question is yes, I did try to delete the BBW version after sideloading the other version and it does not work, you have to keep both versions installed otherwise it won't work.

    I haven't experimented with other sideloading methods, feel free to try.

    Everything works, video, audio, bluetooth.

    Enjoy

    I tried everything Kris , believe me. This is the only way I could get it to work. I wouldn't waste my time experimenting for hours if just a simple sideload would work. Not saying that simple sideloading doesn't work for others, I am sure it does, It just didn't work for me

    If I remember correctly you use a Z? Sorry didn't look up your profile. It only doesn't work on the Q.

    I never had problem having Skype to work on my Z (sideload). The only issue is the back camera doesn't seem to work during the video chat. Anyone has this issue?

    My skype from bbw crashes and skype from sideload w debug token works only on wifi (but android apps with 3g have problems which we are aware of)

    OP, does your method have skype working without wifi (minus the need to hardreset or switch airplane modes)?

    I'm on Q btw

    Turn your wi-fi off, hard reset the phone and Skype will sign in without wi-fi on

    So you guys dont like skype 4.0 like this?

    I found a way to make Skype work on the Q10 running 10.2 leaked OS-img_00000591.png
    I found a way to make Skype work on the Q10 running 10.2 leaked OS-img_00000590.png

    Works with 4G/LTE.
    Sometimes crashes at start (but better than the crash count of the preview version in bbworld) just relaunch the app and it will work again. Doesn't crash during calls/video calls after the first crash.

    Installed with debug token using sache's tool
    Thanks sache (sorry if i spelled your nickname wrong)

    You know there's a request thread on debug token and I'm sure you can get yours too since I got mine 20 mins after I requested it!
