    Turn off wifi.

    Install the file with 4.3.3 in the name. Login with your existing Google account.

    Install the file with the 2.8 in the name. Register.

    Turn wifi back on.

    Install the file with vending in the name.

    You now have the Google Play Store installed on your device.

    There are 3 APK files needed, from Cobalt page

    A) Google Account app. (com.google.android.gsf.login-4.3.3-cobalt)

    B) BlackBerry Google ID app (cobalt.blackberry.googleid-2.8)

    C) Play Store App (com.android.vending-6.0.0-cobalt-build1)

    Here is what I do. Save these 3 files, I use Onedrive cloud storage (Box or Dropbox will work as well), you can also use the device memory or SD card.

    Save the 3 files into a specific folder called Cobalt Playstore. Rename them to remind you of the order or install (same as I listed).. if you need.

    Install (A) and sign in with your Google account.

    Install (B) and complete the device registration.

    Install (C) and download your apps.

    **If some apps require patching, I move them from the Device/Downloads folder to the Onedrive cloud folder so my PC van view easily and patch with GmapsPatcher.

    Anybody has an idea why I cannot install com.google.android.gsf.login-4.4.4-cobalt.apk neither com.google.android.gsf.login-4.3.3-cobalt.apk on BB10 (Passport ?

    Message is "Impossible to install...."

    I have installed all other apk easily but no way to get this on.

    I have to say that when you download all 3 properly you still need to patch because a lot of apps that use Google services won't work. This constant patching thing is irritating. So I just download what works.
