    ok this is slightly off-topic,Planning to buy bb as my first smartphone,after the .1925 leak,I am seeing things D i mean is it "Really" true that many android apps are working flawlessly,slick and without errors? and the runtime is smooth???

    Also is there a working fb android app for bb? which is good aswell?
    Yes, it's true. Everything I've loaded works great. As for the FB android app I don't know. The BlackBerry App works fine for me.

    Only thing I have noted is that since downloading android apps they want access to my contacts, files etc and unless I click not accept the apps won't install
    I cannot (unless I delete them) change the permission settings.

    One caveat is that many if the notifications in those android apps don't work. No Instagram or Snapchat notifications, etc.

    Generally, if you don't accept the permissions the app won't run. That's the case with most apps...not all, but most.

    FYI if you download ghost commander from 1mobile (newer than BBworld) you can disable notifications

    Via CB10 /Rogers/Z30STA100-5/10.2.1.1925
    Also 1Mobile has been getting recent updates, and they have addressed a couple of annoying UI issues. So they are definitely paying attention and addressing issues.

    I wonder if the BlackBerry capability to load APK files has caused them to launch into full gear.

    I just loaded it to check and it seems to run very smoothly once it's loaded and you log in, etc.

    Edit: Some things are a bit laggy for me (scrolling news feed, collapsing notifications menu)

    Not quite, I've only used it briefly here but have already witnessed a few differences .

    I have both versions of FB loaded and the native version has come a long way. They both work well.

    On another app, Tunein, I exclusively use the android version as it is more feature rich. For example it has a sleep timer and it also, right now, is live streaming all the college football bowl games. The native version is not. The downside is the android version is ad supported, but they are small enough not to be obnoxious.

    Pretty sure thhat is exactly how it works on android phones too - there is no granularity in deciding how many permissions an app gets. It is all or nothing. Unlike native BlackBerry apps of course...

    Android apps that you can get as .bar files work well. They may run, but some features can be buggy at times (Bitstrips won't connect, Audible will have trouble loading audio books, etc.) With enough patience they actually work well.

    There are also plenty of alternatives to Android apps, like mobile banking websites, Apollo for Pandora, Sound hound for Shazam,etc. that work well. Overall, life without Google Play is definitely possible.

    Why load bar files when you can install Android apps directly on the phone with this leaked OS? That's the whole point.

    I believe the advantage with using a bar file is that it can be backed and restored unlike with apk apps that you will have to reinstall after a flash if that matters to you.

    Running a native BB10 app is always best. It's just not always possible. Losing my Candy Crush data is better than no Candy Crush at all.

    The Android bar files can't be restored, regardless, nor can their data. If you keep all your APKs in a directory on your media, if restored, or on your SD card, you can just install them from there.

    It's been a day since I loaded it up.
    Things I noticed:
    • Better Android app compatibility. Apps load faster and work better ( Engadget app ,back button for one is working fine now)
    • The quick settings is super useful
    • Using the snap market to install android apps. That works like a charm too.
    • Battery seems to be on par with 10.2.0 so far.. Will need more usage to get a more accurate idea
    • Flash player in the browser seems to be outdated, with few websites asking me to pick the latest one

    The Android apps downloaded from bb world do back up and restore for me. I 'm not sure about sideloaded android bars.

    In the main hub that lists all accounts, search doesn't work for me. However if I go to individual accounts within the hub, search does work.

    Has it always been like this?

    Hi,

    Firstly, thank you for the latest leak. Unfortunately when I click on the link for the "https://mega.co.nz/#!RZ1EVBSb!foUkuhheHd8MaZX7uaLhtlFSoHZVUrLLCHi6b6F-QS8"

    The download does not start.

    Please can you email me the working link as soon as you can.

    Thank you

    That is why we use mirrors. When one link doesnt work for you try another. They are all listed in the first post.
