    I had android and used to customize it. All setting and other files are apk's and via root settings they can be extracted. Now can they be converted and ported on bb10 as bar files??
    Secondly what is -9 failure while side loading?? My google maps works perfectly but other apps like wikitude, olaround gives this error.

    -9 error mean the feature this apk require is not currently supported by the android runtime of bb10 ...... may be in near future they put the support as constanly they are upgrading the runtime .......... and which app you want to convert to bars exactly ?

    I think 9 is dependency on Google Maps API. there is thread on CB which decribes how to remove this dependecy.

    To convert an APK to a bar simply upload the APK to one of these sites and download the bar. Both sites are equally good.

    PlayBook .apk to .bar converter
    APK to Bar Online Converter

    They also have a large number of already-converted apps. Just note tha NOT ALL Android apps currently work. Any apps that require use of proprietary Google services will not currently run. Also, apps that require execution of "native code" will not run without jumping through some hoops (search for 'debug tokens' and 'unlocked runtime').

    Also, if you are running BB10 v10.0 - 10.1, then only Gingerbread and earlier apps run. To run apps that require Jelly Bean you need at least 10.2.
