    Hello, I have a classic and I'm trying to install fbreader because the pre-installed adobe reader is bad.

    Unfortunately I can't install the plugin to read pdf. It tell "can't install the app". I tried to download it directly here : https://fbreader.org/content/fbreader-pdf-plugin but it still don't work.

    Anyone have an idea? Or a good alternative, i need a reader that allow to see all the page if i zoom, and if possible have an option to "search", and "go to page".

    First, there is no such thing as a Q20 - it's called a Classic.

    Second, what you're trying to download is a FBReader plugin - not a standalone app.

    No doubt.

    Don't forget the Android Runtime on BB10 is a semi-compatible version of Android 4.3 from 8 years ago.

    It's not full Android and installing a plug-in to an existing app usually fails.

    Might look into their premium solution?

    If it's an android plugin then this might help you
    Just Demcompile Apk and and add these lines under the activity tab of AndroidManifest.xml file

    <activity android:name=".bblauncher">
    <intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
    </intent-filter>
    Then build the apk and install.
    I hope this will work.

    @BckerryQ20, @Dunt Dunt Dunt, @conite,
    It is possible, but you cannot do it on your own without knowledge.
    Write if an all-in-one version is required (or Pro or Premium), besides pdf, other plugins exist - in order not to tackle the assembly twice.
    @lucifer_morninstar,
    This method will not work properly.
    I understand that you have disassembled my plugins for Total Commander and identified the patterns. But in this case, this will lead to a cyclic opening of the plug-in and the impossibility of further operation of the application. Think or at least check before advising, otherwise the user may have trouble disabling the app after your advice.

    I only need the pdf plugin.
