    The link in the BlackBerry Manager to his repository is also non-functional.

    Hope he's okay.

    And in reality, so is the Suite. I guess not enough people paid for it.

    What's weird is that his PlayStore 10 GitHub page is still there.

    This is an end of an era. So many people benefited from your dedication. I still remember helping out with your work on the Priv several years ago.
    I'm still using your work on my Pixel 4a.
    Cobalt232, major thanks for all you did for us.

    I tried to pay a few bucks a couple of years ago and even then the Donate tab on BB Manager crashed. Have tried a few times since to no avail

    *EDIT* Just tried it now and it seems to be working for the first time. Going to chuck him a few bucks anyhow

    I meant the real Suite from Google Play.

    Cobalt had to take down his stuff. BlackBerry finally caught up to him. See post#6.

    I do not think it is as much as catching up to him as cleaning up things as they sell everything phone related off.

    Sure took them long enough to even bother.

    Heck, they were helping out back when he first started this with the Priv.

    IP has clearly been handed off to a separate legal department to deal with. Blackberry-proper is likely unaware.

    Yeah I always figured BlackBerry was aware... but they appreciated how the same efforts had helped with BB10 so much, they overlooked the minor losses in sales with Cobalt's BB Manager.

    Hopefully this is a sign that BlackBerry (or someone) is about "invest" into these apps.

    It is funny how companies will differ on things like this, it is very obvious that Cobalts changes hurt no one and really helped to keep the system working. Paramount years ago was faced with the same thing a group in NYS of trekkies had a full scale mock up of the Enterprise Bridge. They had fun dressing up and filming scenes of them having fun, they posted them on YouTube. Then the letter came from Paramount that they are infringing on their copy write and ceases and desist. They wrote back explaining what and why they are doing it that they make no profit, just as fans. After a few more back and fourths the approval was given, even William Shatner visited his "Bridge".

    In fairness though, the BlackBerry Suite is a paid subscription service - kind of like Netflix.

    How does offering modded apps (HUB or Netflix) to circumvent paying "not hurt anyone"?

    But the app ( BB Manager as APK file which I have saved and stored in my cloud app) itself is still active right?

    Even if you re- installing the app and the modified priv apps afterwards on a new android OS platforms and a brand new smartphone, it should and still works 100% right?
