    No, I'm having the same problem too. I just deleted the Google Play Services 6.6.03 after using it for half a day and my battery life is now significantly improved. I'm going to try 5.0.89 and 6.1.05 later tonight to see how those go.
    Did I miss something? Where did you get a patched version of 6.6.0.3? Or is it not patched?

    Yes, you missed something. Cobalt posted it in one of the threads along with something else. But I cannot remember where and in what conjunction now.

    Cobalt is it me or I can't edit permissions anymore from Android settings?
    Maybe the play store is conflicting with it and messing it up?
    Thanks!

    Use Blackberry Google ID to edit permissions. You can't edit them in Android Settings.

    I'm using the Google Play Services 6.1.05 and battery life is much much better than 6.6.03. It's actually just a little lower battery life than before I installed it but still am getting around 20 something hours avg.

    ... I did something terrible wrong. I deleted some files. Now Google Map does not work on my Passport 10.3.0 any more. It asks to turn on location services, but fails to recognize it even though the location services is on.

    Unfortunately I don't remember... I deleted many things to avoid android apps to work on the background. Now battery last forever! But Google Map is gone.

    The apk won't download, and I get an error message: 'xApp not installed.'

    I have downloaded Google Play (my phone is Chinese and all things Google related have been wiped), but it won't open. It flashes and exits immediately. Please help, thanks

    Are you saying the error message says that your phone is a Note, or are you actually trying to install this on a Note?

    You will have to reload OS.

    You deleted random OS files to prevent android apps from running, and now want an android app to run.

    I thought that might be the reason. However, this morning I received updated OS 10.3.1.1581. Google Map still does not recognize the location services on my ATT Passport. Weird!

    For those of you who have apps that are not pushing notifications to the Hub and are desperate for any kind of workaround to get something, I have an interesting workaround to propose to you that I did myself and have been happy with.

    This requires you have an old Android phone lying around that you can leave lying around the house permanently on wifi, which I'm betting most of you on here do and that is why you're desperately trying to get Android functionality on your BlackBerry.

    Install the apps you want notifications to on the old Android and log in to them so the Android phone receives notification.
    Install Tasker from Play Store on Android phone (I already had this app, but for those who don't I think it only costs a few bucks).
    Install Email Me Pro on Android phone (costs $2).
    Set trigger for Tasker to be on phone receiving Notification from the specific app you want the BlackBerry to receive and make the action to send an email via the plug-in Email Me Pro.
    Do something like set the subject of the email to be "%NTITLE" (Tasker variable set to text of last received push notification on phone).
    I set all this up with an extra gmail account I created specifically for these notifications so now in the BlackBerry Hub I have an email account specifically labeled as Android Notifications.

    Sync the same email on your BlackBerry phone and voila! You now will receive a Hub notification (an email that looks like a Notification) every time you get a notification on the Android. So far has worked for everything expect SnapChat because they annoyingly do not allow the same account to be logged in from two locations.

    Hope this idea helps others.

    Thanks Cobalt for all your work! A++ stuff.

    Don't try to log in from "google account", log in from the app you want to log on, this will invoke Google account.

    I think I messed up by installing both the Login Services and Play Services before trying to login using the BlackBerry->Settings->Accounts->Add. Now I don't see the Google login anywhere on that screen. I tried deleting the Google Play Services and restarting the phone (Z10 running official 10.3.1), but I just can't login in to Google because it doesn't show up in BlackBerry Settings.

    Any ideas?

    This is the suggested order to install the apps:

    1. Google Login Services: Install, then login from Blackberry account settings (do NOT login in the installed app)
    2. Google Play store
    3. Google Play store downloader

    With those 3 apps you can use the Playstore and some basic apps that don't require Google Play services

    Then..
    4. Google Play services (install this, if you run apps that require Google play services)

    Optionally you can install the rest of the other apps from the page in any order.
