    If you are responding on your device you should be able to attach from within your posted response. At the bottom of the screen should be a Paperclip icon. Tap it and it should open you Pictures folder. Select the desired image and then tap on Post at top of page. It will automatically attach.

    If you're on a PC there is an "insert image" icon in the quick reply toolbar.

    Thank you I figured it out

    I had to start another thread because this was totally freaking me out

    This is where I am right now:

    I cannot even do anything with Cobalts files because apparently I need to do some update to android run time.

    I wasn't getting much information on this thread, so I opened another thread and started to take it one step at a time

    After several hours I have managed to discover that I cannot really even download the android run time, for some reason no one has been able to identify

    So someone came along and sent me those files in some drop box

    So i have the files but I don't know what to do with it. This is like pulling teeth, even more nightmare of an experience. I wish someone really explained how exactly I must do with these files

    Someone above mentioned sachi or something like that. It is not even opening. It looks like a white plain document and my laptop say what file to use to open, how am i to know that?! So I abandoned that sachi

    Right now I have those files on something called mega (again recommended above) I looked around for a way of downloading these to the phone, I cannot find

    Grab your Passport. Open the browser, go here: Unable to uninstall Android applications after updating to BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap the link there.

    Patience again....before we deal with your Google Services issue let's get the android runtime fix sorted.

    You have been provided with all the details you need in several previous posts and You've been given several suggestions with good intent but I think it's led to some confusion on your end. Start as follows...

    1.
    The link Fret provided above for the ART fix has also been provided previously....use it to get to the BBW fix. Make sure your phone isn't in Developmental mode or Desktop mode. Conite noted how you could disable that.
    Download the file do not open it and simply restart your phone. The link to the fix is in the following article.

    http://support.blackberry.com/kb/art...mber=000037772

    2.
    You had posted that you were unable to get the appropriate page in BBW and a screen shot of what you should see was provided...it should look like the image below...if you don't see that image then provide a screen shot of what you do see. We can go from there.




    Cobalt's official Google Apps landing page-img_20160620_094757.png

    3.
    Andre had suggested the 2813 ART rollback using Sachesi and the Mega files.. It works but it will complicate things for you....forget about that option for now.

    As noted get the ART fix installed then we can look at deleting any corrupted Google service files and ultimately installing the appropriate Cobalt stack.

    Many thanks Lusitano

    I have successfully sideloaded the necessarily files because for some reason my passport wouldn't open the page you show me.

    One of the moderators sent me the files in a zip format which I extracted and updated my phone

    Now I will visit your earlier posts and follow instructions.

    the issue has been that you are all veterans. I hardly understand what you guys are talking about. I must first decirpher the jargon (regardless of the intent) before extracting files and installing!!

    I will report in due course. Many thanks for your patience, politeness and persistance with helping me

    I switched off and rebooted and now the processing ended swiftly and I was asked to install. Midway, it said that it is unable to install.

    Cobalts tools seem to be riddled with errors

    You were supposed to reboot after updating the Android Runtime and then wait 10 minutes before touching the device.

    right now, I feel sorry for myself, whilst same time grateful

    if only it was all laid out neatly to begin with.

    I am having to ask what next and then someone would come along and say, why did you upload or download, you should have waited. you should have done this, that and the other

    and all the while, no one believing me that I couldn't just reach the android run time

    anyway, will appreciate if dollface doesn't stir

    I mean business, to set up my phone with cobalt's apps. I like to focus on that if you will excuse me thankyou

    I appreciate that you are having issues. I think the first post is laid out very clearly. I am not stirring anything, I was praising Conite for his assistance and patience. Good luck to you

    Not a coincidence..the numbers coincide but 4.4 is based on Android kitkat and is "experimental". It must have Google play services installed to function.

    The limitation however is in BlackBerry android runtime...stuck at 4.3 Jellybean.

    Read Cobalts comments and description on very first page of this thread.

    Exactly...the apk is numbered 8.4.89 and is displayed as Google Settings icon upon installation.

    All the details are described on first page. Cobalt has done a great job...read carefully.

    Cobalt recommends 4.3 since it's tailored to the BlackBerry android runtime. More likely to have issues with 4.4 4 version...

    "Google Account Manager 4.4.4 is an experimental, newer version of the Google Login app. It is taken from Android 4.4 (KitKat) and it only works if Google Play Services is installed. You should always prefer version 4.3.3 over 4.4.4, becaue 4.3.3 was specifically built for Jelly Bean."
