    Well, just wanted to throw this out there to help boost morale for BB10 on the PlayBook. Recently a BAR file for the clock application in 10.2 was released and I was surprised to find 1024x600 assets in there.

    http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-le...-alarms-816491

    I didn't try loading it to the PB, but the fact that the assets are in there for the PB's screen size tells me they haven't forgotten about it just yet. In fact I'm willing to bet that the work needed to bring BB10 to the PB has proved far more challenging as that entire UI will need to be reworked to provide a decent user experience.

    Anyway, just passing that along for a boost to the hope that some may still be hanging on to...

    Look at a clock version in 10.1 and see if 1024x600 is in that. Then we might have something if it isn't.

    Would not even load:

    Open up the bar file, change the 'target' from 10.0 to 2.1 in the bar-descriptor.xml and resign the app. Now it will sideload, but i dont think it'll work

    You load the 10.0 dev by downloading it, and installing via dingle

    I thought I read a comment from him stating that he used Dingle but with a work around that he would tutorial at a later date? He warned not to try and load it as it would soft brick the PlayBook.

    It wont work anyways since the Native/Cascades/Air SDK's are very different from the Playbook SDK.

    When BB10 hits the Playbook the SDK's will be the same.

    I'm pretty sure it won't be signable without BlackBerry keys with system level permissions. Also, you'd need to include the cascades libraries.

    I haven't understood if 1024x600 assets are present also in OS 10.1 apps. However, the fact that 10.2 apps support PlayBook resolution isn't it an overwhelming evidence that OS 10 will soon arrive on our tablets?

    Well, you have used rim/bbry's favorite word when it comes to the PB - SOON. In their dictionary (those Canadians) it can mean anywhere from a month or two to months and months - maybe even a year. But it does not generally mean, well, SOON!

    "When will then be now?" "...Soon"



    I think the important question we all seem to not be asking is: "How soon?"

    Ok, F2, you're right, but you did not answer to my question: do you know if also 10.1 apps got 1024x600 assets? Thanks you in advance. Irony against RIM is not useful: I'm very angry too for this update, but now we must find evidences.

    I don't know about inclusion of pb's "needs" in the newer OS versions. While I do occasionally read about experiments and dissections of the OS' components to see if the pb is addressed, until there are actually real working versions (even unofficial ones), it remains more conjecture than valuable.

    Unfortunately the 10.1 clock app also supports 1024x600 resolution under assets. Anyway, located in the manifest.mf file in any app, you will see what OS is required for that app to work. Only ONE app sys.bugreporter.bar actually states Tablet OS 10.0.9.0 Required. All other apps say Blackberry 10/10.0.9.0 (or higher) .

    The Playbook can work with BB10.2 but Blackberry has added restrictions to keep it from running by removing screen resolution support and target platform checks. Sure the bloated BBOS will have a tough time running with the limited memory resources, but the Playbook is essentially a STL100-1 without a radio and extra GB. If the security framework was stripped from BBOS, the Playbook would have been running BB10.2 already instead of us just waiting for them to get around to it when their developers are bored and don't have anything better to do.
