    So I tried using this link, downloaded the file but couldn't install it. I get the BlackBerry warning about installing a file from unknown source but not any "ok" to agree with, and the install button at the top of the screen never becomes clickable. Do I need to search for a link ON the Fdroid site for the same file?? https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/sergey...-apk-download/

    Just my $.02, YMMV ! ;-) sent via my Q10
    First, Go to Settings > App Manager > Installing Apps and enable Allow Apps from other Sources to be Installed. Then, try to install the apk file again.

    I just tried that, but it won't allow me to "flip" the switch! It says installing apps from other sources is turned off by your administrator. I don't get it! It's been a while but I know that I was able to make this change in the 1st year I owned my Q10... I had to use this to install at least one of the apps from the (no longer installed Amazon app store)
    The device is NOT part of any work controlled network. I have only used it for my own personal use, synchronized only with my personal PC. How can I HAVE an administrator for a cell that has never been IN a work environment??

    Where did you originally purchase the phone? New or used?

    Crud! I'm going to hope for someone here having an idea. I will try contacting BlackBerry but I don't hold out much hope that they'll bother providing assistance. They can unfortunately say that they don't offer help for installation of non BlackBerry software plus I'm obviously way out of warranty...

    Wanted to tag you too on this scuba...

    Assuming you can install other Android apps, this sounds like a device confused about the version required for certain Android apps. The "administrator" bit is wonky, but that would be my first question: can you install APKs at all?

    I'd also try this: https://f-droid.org/repo/com.github....lpstore_45.apk

    Also, I recommend Aptoide:

    https://en.aptoide.com

    and APKPure:

    https://apkpure.com

    for your Android app needs, as you're more likely to get compatible versions of apps there. conite disagrees, but then again, conite and I disagree on a lot of things...

    I downloaded the FDROID version with same lack of results. The "install" button isn't clickable. :-(

    I used to be able to install apps by using the settings like this. I haven't a clue what changed to make it unusable. The other two links would probably have some useful apps but if my Q10 won't allow me to install them it's a moot point.

    I just happened to be cruising the forums here on CB, I saw a post about TuneIn not working on someone's Classic so I tried it on all my BB10 devices. The speaker on the Q10 out performs the speaker on the Classic. I also saw a post about keyboard typing speed (10fastfingers.com) and I compared the Q10, Classic and PPSE. The Q10 won!

    The Q10 is an awesome little phone, I have a Z30 that I can connect using Hotspot for watching videos when needing a bigger screen.

    That might have been my thread, lol. I'm surprised TuneIn is working perfectly on my Bold 9900 but not my Classic. Anyways, I use Rad.io on BB10. Works like a champ.

    BlackBerry 10 forever!
