    Do you think that the BB Priv turn to be a rooted or un-rooted smartphone device?

    Unrooted. Also, the bootloader will be locked to BlackBerry signed packages only

    I could be wrong but I think that also appeals to Marshmellow as well?

    Okay. Another question,

    Do you think we can retrieve apps from the appstore BlackBerry World on Android OS as well or instead of BB World, we retrieve only apps from Google Play Store on Android OS?

    Any app store other than BlackBerry World, probably.

    Maybe, but it'll launch with Lollipop.

    The only example I could find of someone trying to root Android + grsecurity resulted in failure to root.
