    I've followed the instructions (see below), but can't go past the first step. Even though, I have a Gmail account, I can't log in (nor can I create a new account). I've tried these steps on 3 different BB passport & 1 BB classic. What should I do next?

    Step 1: Add a Google system account to your device. Install com.google.android.gsf.login. ...
    Step 2: Register your device with Google Play. Install cobalt.blackberry.googleID. ...
    Step 3: Install Google Play Store. Install com.android.vending.

    Why did you start a new thread instead of posting in the already existing Cobalt thread?

    And why did you post a reply to a question without answering the question? Even a link would be nice. Not everyone knows that the answer to the question they need might be buried in a 100s page thread somewhere.

    since when. I installed it a couple of days ago on a passport and it works fine. Had to download the files to my pc first and then copy the apk files over to my passport and then install it.

    Why didn't you provide the link or the answer if you are so helpful. You just like to criticize?
    I provided advice where he will get the appropriate help, I'm sure the OP is capable of searching the threads.

    I installed it, had it working. Then, it stopped. I wonder if your passport has the latest updates. Either way, use it while it works, cause it wont be for long.

    So, it's his fault you didn't answer the question, or post a link?

    You're the one that made the original comment, you should be the one to back up that comment with some type of info. Until you do, you're just wasting that guys time. And when you're best defense to you being lazy/mean is to call someone a name, you've already lost the argument.

    You called me lazy/mean, that is name calling. Thanks for that. What name did I call anyone?
    And you wrote all that and yet you aren't able to provide any help. I guess you should do a search as well, you might learn something (including how to do a search).

    First, I need to point out, you are not very good at this, but I am bored, so I'll keep playing with you.

    I didn't call you a name, I described what you were doing, being "lazy" by not supporting your statement with facts, "mean" by trying to call people out that said you aren't helping. You are right though, you didn't name call. But that is the only thing you are right about.

    Again, when it comes to posting a link to back up what you said, why should someone else do it for you? Why didn't I, easy, the thread you could be talking about, I've never seen. If you post a link to the wrong thread, who am I helping then? The effort you have put into defending your reason for not posting a link has been double what it would have been if you just posted the link and moved on. But you didn't. You're first comment in this thread was a waste of time, this thread would have been better off if you never clicked on post.

    As for as doing a search, all you had to do is look at the second comment in this thread to see, I did actually try to help the guy out. I suggest you follow your own words.

    Before you go into another defensive, "you did this, you did that, 3rd grade attempt at a rebuttal, use that time to post the link and call it a day.

    I have the latest updates, and its still working just fine. Could be something specific to your set up?

    I have question: you state google play doesn't work anymore.
    We have installed the cobalt stuff in the right order. At my passport I failed installing the play store. "not able to install"
    But I do have the registrations done of the first 2 steps "google account" and "BB Google ID".
    At the Z10 (running same OS as PP) we did exactly the same and it is working correctly.

    ? can you confirm this is not working anymore

    It works fine. Download the apk again. Maybe the file is corrupted.

    Hi comit,

    This is what I have:
    Working Google account
    Recognized BlackBerry Google id
    I do can recheck the Google account and to me it responds correctly

    The install of play store goes until the end - in between accept the access of the program - and then quit. With the message canot install.

    As this phone is new no updates required. But I do have noticed that old android files are improper deleted.
    So I used the Google plus white list which indeed reinstall and deleted apps correctly

    Any suggestions?

    First off, if you're on OS2876 (sw2836), update your Runtime and reboot your device.
    http://www.crackberry.com/if-youve-b...update-try-now

    And second, erase all remnants of the Cobalt apps using Ghost Commander, and then reboot.

    Third, download Cobalt's 3 files, and add apk extensions manually if you use your mobile browser, then turn off wifi.

    Fourth, install Google login 4.3.3 and log in with existing account.

    Fifth, install Google ID 2.8 and register.

    Sixth, install Cobalt's modified Google Play Store.

    Done.
