    Ghostery 2.4.7 Blackberry Design and Adaptation by XcrazyS - Yandex Disk

    As I have promised. Redesigned the Ghostery browser:
    • Includes two full-fledged display modes, depending on your Blackberry screen settings:
      • In the "Full Size" mode - the standard mobile navigation bar is displayed,
      • In the "Zoom Out" mode - the tab mode is activated, as on a PC,
        When changing the display mode - it is necessary to restart the browser so that the markup overturns,
    • All browser settings are displayed in the main menu, regardless of the display mode,
    • Library compression has been removed - the package takes about 110 MB, but at the same time the application loads almost instantly and the device does not heat up during operation,
    • Duckduckgo search service is installed by default (other services can be added through the main menu, after entering a request on the corresponding resources),
    • App Display Name - Ghostery Browser,
    • Blackberry style icon for all devices on Blackberry 10,
    • Connected: magnifier, text selection sliders in the application input fields (in the navigation menu, bookmark menu, etc.),
    • Auto-correction of text is connected,
    • Improved text editing menu,
    • Redesigned color scheme of the application, graphics,
    • The assembly is universal, it works on Android devices.

    The application supports the installation of Firefox add-ons (including themes). In addition to the already installed "Ghostery" module ("lock" in the navigation bar - "Options"), you can install "uBlock Origin" to achieve almost 99% of the result of ad blocking, tracking, etc. and user agent.

    Magic Earth 7.1.19.20 - Yandex Disk

    • The application version is 7.1.19.20 (the most stable at the moment),
    • Removed library compression, cold start of the application for less than 10 seconds,
    • It is installed on devices from Android 4.1 to Android 4.3, other markups, etc. deleted
    • Danilka is set as the default voice acting,
    • AutoCorrect is connected in input fields,
    • Restored: magnifier and text selection sliders,
    • Blackberry-style app icon for all devices on Blackberry 10,
    • Minor changes in the graphic part.

    For best performance:
    • It’s better to load cards in the device’s internal memory,
    • Map Layers - Traffic / Road cameras (unless others are required),
    • Card Style - Standard (unless others are required),
    • Infrastructure objects - at your discretion, the less - the better,
    • 2D / 3D Map - 2D.

    Are you using a Passport? I like to experiment with apps on a spare Z10 that I have and this Ghostery app downloaded and installed well and it does work quite well even on my Z10. Just now I've tried to install on my Passport and it never quite finishes the installation. I've tried 3 times now with reboots etc and still nothing.

    No, I just downloaded the apk on a PC and from there used File Manager on my BB10 devices to install. Works fine on the Z10 but the installation never finishes on the Passport.Adapted Android applications, tips and tricks.-img_20191009_205841.jpg

    It stays about 95% finished and never completes.

    If you go back to your apps screen, is the icon among them? I have found some apks take forever if you wait on them to complete. I usually just wait until the permissions boxx pops up and accept them if I feel necessary, then go back and open the app from the main screen.

    Yes, the icon is there but when tapped I just get a black screen with " initializing, please wait....." and that also runs forever (I've waited a full 10 minutes until my device gets hot. Very odd because the Z10 took it no problem with the same OS on both devices. @XcrazyS - any advice?

    Yes, I have a Blackberry Passport SE.
    • Check the hash amount (for example, using the native "File Hash" or "MD5 Hash Calculator" application):
      MD5 / SHA1:
      d130c7a8c8062192e9803997ee2e04eb / 27cdfff6b2254b65449ef44b62d80dcd7ac77188
    • Reboot the device by holding both side volume keys,
    • Deactivate Blackberry Guardian.
    • Try installing the application again.

    I did have Kiwi initially but after awhile (several tries to install) I deleted it, searched for remnants, rebooted then tried Ghostery again but no good. I've done everything I can think of so I'm back to Kiwi which is ok. I've given up on your browser - no big deal, as I just like to try other browsers. All is OK.

    @brookie229,
    Regarding Kiwi - I noticed that the application periodically spontaneously loads into RAM, which is not good. I switched to Ghostery (with all the changes in the assembly), in my opinion - this is the best that could be found for Android 4.3. Fast, without ads, without analytics, without trackers, does not heat the device.
    When installing - after 90%, the Manifest is analyzed and registered. It is possible that at this time some antivirus or application analyzer blocks the process, usually this happened during the Guardian (maybe it itself was incorrectly deactivated).
    I hope you did not install Android Runtime from BBW? Because the version from BBW is not suitable for 10.3.3.3216.
    In any case, reinstall the bar files of the Android machine (android and shell), as this device behavior indicates a software malfunction.

    Working on it mh.

    The ban on TeamViewer was removed some time ago, though I'm all for multiple people removing it themselves if they wish. It is a different style of ban than what Amazon Prime appears to be using.

    @TrumpetTiger,
    If you look, the list of changes is much wider than editing the "bools". Especially for Blackberry Passport - my modifications are most pronounced, because a magnifier is used for navigation.
    I modified my first 14 version last year, when it was just released. On my Russian-language forum, I often post different applications.
    In applications, I’m doing a redesign of the icons and application interface in the style of a Blackberry, delete all analytics, advertising activities, clean the manifest and remove Google dependencies. Also engaged in the activation of full versions, paid, etc. I just don’t know how your leadership relates to such modifications.
    In any case, we are doing one common thing, we support the system’s operability by all available methods. Good luck in the development. I hope you like my apps.
    I also want to note that part of the bar files from this list are still not added to the general list in the corresponding topic:

    Hello Xcrazy,

    I'm all for people modifying APKs in whatever method they wish, as long as they are made freely available and not claimed to developed from scratch (such as Nemory Studios does). I'm glad you were able to modify TeamViewer and anything else you wish to do. I do think modifications should generally be limited to those required for apps to function normally for widespread distribution as I find that tends to introduce the fewest compatibility problems for multiple users. But again, go for whatever modifications you wish.

    I admit to being a little curious as to what you mean by "the style of a Blackberry," but otherwise I think it's great that people are working on making APKs available. I do think that native apps are a better overall forum for development, and given your clear talents in this area if you are willing having a new, say, native browser would be a great thing to have. But again, you do you.

    On the bar files: could you let me know your original source for the ones not freely available? I'm trying to make certain that the ones on the main thread are direct from developers wherever possible, and while that's not always possible I like to double-check. The emulators and such I know are freely available, but Paperbird for example is not so far as I know. However, perhaps I am missing something. Feel free to PM me if you'd like as well.

    As for general updates, I have a great many Blackberry and other irons in the fire right now but I appreciate your ping on the BAR list and will endeavor to update the thread shortly so that there is one central list. With that said I'm all for others distributing as well; the more the merrier.

    @TrumpetTiger,
    I understand your concern in verifying the originality of the installation files, security is important in this matter.
    I searched all bar files on Github and Sourceforge, in the original author repositories.
    Finding all the repositories again, of course, is very difficult, but I will try.
    For example, Paperbird (and other applications of this developer) is the official developer repository - https://github.com/anpho.
    Emulator GnGeo - https://sourceforge.net/projects/gngeo10/
    Emulator GnGeo for Playbook - https://sourceforge.net/projects/gngeopb/
    Archive with BIOS and games for GnGeo - assembled manually.
    Soon I will show you what Blackberry design means in android applications.
    And I'll show you some more features of the system, reviews of which are not on your forum.
