    Note: not sure if this is the correct place for this thread. This is about a side loading app, but not for Android side loading (it doesn't have APK conversion, just for installing general BAR files). Please move this thread in case this is not the right place.

    Many people have asked me to create an app similar to localbar2, to Install BAR files via Proxy (or to Install/send bar files to another bb10/PlayBook in the same wifi network).

    So here is the app:

    BarInstall

    Tested on Dev Alpha C (10.1) and Z10 (10.2).

    BarInstall Native App (Like Localbar for PlayBook)-localbar-menu-z10.jpg

    This app is FREE. You don't need barinstall.com premium account to use it.

    However, if you have barinstall.com premium account, you can use the extra features (uploading BAR files, Install via VPN without proxy, convert APK).

    I was going to make two apps (one for LocalBar and one for BarInstall) but maintaining two apps takes more time and both shared quite a lot of code.

    BarInstall Native App (Like Localbar for PlayBook)-barinstall-menu-z10-vpn.jpg

    Currently, I don't have time to write a documentation or make a video for it, I am sure you guys can figure out how to use it

    Thanks to all premium members of barinstall.com for the support of my work.

    Hey thanks for the great app, will make reloading OS much quicker once I get this figured out. I can't actually get it to work out hence my request for assistance. I must be missing a simple step.

    I think I setup the app as it should but I keep getting errors when trying to load a bar from my SD Card. All images are included.

    I DO NOT HAVE A PROXY ACCOUNT. Just want to stress that.....

    First: you either need *A proxy* or *A BarInstall premium account*.

    For the theory of "why do we need a proxy", you can read this web page (this is for playbook, but the principle is the same):

    localbar2

    You can install a proxy server in your machine (any OS X, Windows, Linux), in your Android, in your Old BBOS device.

    Not sure if this possible or mentioned. Can you automate the the developer mode set up? If so that would make your app very appealing to common users who want to sideload.

    Unfortunately this is not possible. Blackberry only gives an API that invoke a shortcut to the developer mode screen, but the user must enable it manually.

    Gotcha'.

    Still this gives non savy users another way to sideload. Great work.

    I'm using my wife's 9900 as the proxy and I can't seem to install any .bar files. I've tried a handful of times and I remember this happening on my old BBOS device where the install would report back as complete when it said it was at 50% complete. The app is working but the install keeps bailing prematurely (well reports as complete when its not).

    You can use localbar 2 on your PB to push to your z10

    You need to Download the BAR from your PB though.

    You either need to sideload it from PC, or buy a BarInstall premium membership to install it OTA.

    Actually, I haven't tested this with localbarproxy for BBOS, but I assume it will work since the protocol is still exactly the same.

    Thanks tinyhack, I'll try it. I've been using TinyController when I used BBOS and really love it. Do you have plan to make one for BB10?

    It involves the souls of young adults and lots of pixie dust...

    Seriously, the easiest way. If you have two devices (i.e. PB and BlackBerry 10) is to use this app to 'push' a bar file from one to the other without even using a proxy.
