    Ill be honest the last 24 hours have been a disappointing crash coarse in getting to know my blackberry playbook so I will stick to the point. I want to be able to use smart glass for xbox one on my playbook, I cannot seem to get one working that doesn't fail my keyboard app and give me an error code. Am I missing something like do I need the android runtime 4.3 app to make this work, or should I be emulating android os some how. I cannot find an apk to convert nor a working bar and would much apreciate some help my brain is killing me from hours of trying to figure this out and just to get no where, I already hate this device for its lack of applications and really dont want to have to resell it considering it works really smooth.

    I am not sure what problem you are having but I use a BT Motorola Kb and it works great. If it is an APP problem then you may have to sideload it.

    Unlikely. I do recall one person claiming that he got an android keyboard working on his Playbook, but I don't know of anyone who was able to replicate this claim.

    Are you talking about an Android software keyboard? I have hacker's keyboard sideloaded on my playbook and it works with almost no issues. Not sure about the Android application though.

    Also, Hello everyone! I've been reading the forum for a while but never posted, so I'll take the occasion and wish everyone a happy 2014

    Hat happens is when I load Xbox One SmartGlass (Or any other smartglass app for that matter) it just says there was a blackberry keyboard failure. I have been trying everything but havent found a solution. Also what is sideloading exactly?

    You have to double select the text area you want to write into, otherwise it won't show up.
    Sideloading, in this context, is installing an application from outside BB world on the playbook

    OK Lorenzo Lotto. But, I've installed Hacker's Keyboard, and on opening the app, I follow the instructions, and tapping the "Set Input Method" button, I get this- no Hacker's Keyboard option.

    Tapping the "Enable Keyboard" button simply brings up the BB language settings screen

    So, I then start up the Android Settings app and try to enable the Keyboard from there, and while I can (seemingly), maximizing any android app after this causes the settings to revert to the BB keyboard.

    So, what am I doing wrong?

    The only thing i did differently is changing the input method. After installing the keyboard, I opened the application I wanted to use, long pressed the input box and picked the keyboard from there.

    Hey im trying your solution now. Also how do I screen capture? I also already knew what side loading was but thank you for the definition I just didn't know what the word meant now I wont be confused.

    Will it play your friends videos?
    Mine keeps saying unable to play video.
    Dead rising 3 companion app works good though.

    I've only used it to control the XBOX and input text. I'll check out the dr3 app, it sounds interesting. Can't check friends vids, as I don't have any. I dumped them all because of the repeated claims that they had slept with my mum. She's denying it of course but you can't argue with 150 halo players. They can't all be lying.

    SmartGlass works pretty well on the Z10.

    Given the fact that SG 1.7 requires Android 4.0 and up, I'm not surprised that it doesn't work on the PB...

    I am having the same issue with the sideloaded Xbox One SmartGlass app. I receive the message: "Sorry! The application BlackBerry Keyboard (process system.apps) has stopped unexpectedly. Please Try again."

    Has anyone been able to get this running properly on the PlayBook?

    Hi, SlcCorrado, mine not working since yesterday, asks for an update. I have downloaded the latest from Google app store, but keeps asking for the update.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks a lot.
