    To: Anyone who is capable of this,

    My girlfriend's passport will not play any .apk even those from BlackBerry World.

    We have done a fresh wipe and restore and she is frustrated.

    Does anyone have the newest androidplayer .bar that they could post here so I can just add it overtop in hopes that it fixes this for her?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    We need a little bit more information here, is this a brand new BlackBerry user or were they migrating from a previous device? If migrating, did they do a backup and restore to the Passport?

    I'd start by doing a few reboots by using the Vol + & - keys (held for 15 seconds), with 10 minutes between reboots. Sounds like the Android runtime has gotten itself buggered up.

    I had a similar experience after restoring my apps & data from a backup. I did a few of the Vol reboots and removed & reinstalled some of the apps that weren't working. After a little fiddling and letting it sit for an hour or so it settled in and everything is once again working as expected.

    EDIT:

    Also noticed this was posted in the leaks / beta OS forum, what OS version is loaded on this Passport?

    PassportSQW100-1/10.3.0.1154

    We've done a few reboots but will try a few more.

    Basically a loading bar shows with each android app launch and stalls indefinitely at ~ 80%

    Yes restore. She is adamant on it unfortunately as I suspect a clean wipe would resolve all.

    Grab the android and android shell from this link, then install and reboot, maybe it will be fixed.

    Hooray!!! Or so I thought. My android also doesn't open. After side loading this it still doesn't work. What about the android bars from another stable 10.3? I'm running Z10STL100-3/10.3.0.1418

    Seems like you need to reload your OS again and doing selective restore for application data (don't select android runtime when restore).

    Was hoping the OTA update to PassportSQW100-1/10.3.0.1418 would fix it.

    No go.

    Will wipe and selectively restore.
