    Apologies for repost (wanted to sign in this time):

    I'm a teacher so I have access to Google Apps For Education. I've tried everywhere, followed every step on Cobalt's pages, and cannot get past the obstacle "need Google Play Services". Can anyone suggest an alternative app store that works with BB10 where I can get GClassroom?

    Thanks

    That won't work. The app must be patched with Play Services Patcher.

    And you need:
    Google Account Manager
    Blackberry Google ID
    Google Play Services

    All from my Google apps Landing page.

    Thanks for your reply. I believe I followed each step in your thorough instructions. Still no dice. Should I delete all 3 and start over?

    Thanks

    Did you patch the classroom app with Play Services Patcher? That step is absolutely nessecary.

    Yes I patched classroom app acc. to directions. I installed Play Services Patcher on my laptop, connected my Passport, located the Classroom apk I previously downloaded on my Passport. (Y drive) Then followed steps outlined.
    When I launched Classroom, I didn't get Play Services message anymore. However, I'm prompted to "add account". Click on that, and then prompted to select my school email address, which I click, which is already selected.

    Then back to the blue closed door with green 101 sign, and message: "Can't reach Classroom. Make sure you're connected to the internet."

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    I could maybe fix that, but not without having access to a Classroom account. Can you provide a test account?

    You can send them to my email. I will then see what I can do to fix the issues.

    To other readers, here is how it was fixed:

    1. Install Google Account Manager 4.3.3, Blackberry Google ID 2.8 and Play Services 8.4.89 Build 3
    2. Patch the Classroom app with Play Services Patcher, default settings
    3. Whitelist the app with Google+ Whitelist app

    Hi again! So I've installed a bunch of Playstore apps and they are all working. They've all been Google+ Whitelisted. Now I'm getting the usual update notifications from Gplay, and when I try to update, I get the following message:

    Can't update app

    Update for "Google Classroom" could not be downloaded due to an error (Error retrieving information from server. (RPC:S-7:AEC-7AMAQ-J72L-S6D3G).

    Any insights? Wondering what happens if I just don't do the updates?

    Thanks for any input!

    Does anyone have any input into the "update" issue I described above, or if this is addressed in another thread?
    Thanks
