    Hi, I have spent hours looking through the various posts on the topics and unable to solve my problem.

    I have 2 problems:

    1) Unable to connect my device to Blackberry Link
    I have uninstalled and re-installed twice on my mac. My Z10 doesn't show up on my computer or in Link when connected via a USB cable.

    2) I want to load Instagram on my device and have tried to perform a sideload however there is a problem in the process. I downloaded the Darryl Kraemer Automator script but it does not open on my computer.

    I used these two links which where the most helpful after many How to Side-load Android Apps on BlackBerry 10 via Mac OS X - N4BB and How to Load Android Files - BB10 or Playbook (MAC) - Essential Playbook and BB10 Apps and still have had no success.

    Please if anyone can help who is well versed with the BB10 and Mac OS - I am still on Snow Leopard I would be grateful.

    1) Try another cable or USB port
    2) I recommend this simplified Mac sideloading tutorial by a CrackBerry user Rotmistr: http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-an...-3-app-819303/

    Instagram is a bit tricky, but I got it working, so you should too. Try searching for Instagram here on forums, there are several ways of installing it, I used the one where you install the old version first and then the newest version.

    ^this, plus search for the Google Chrome method on sideloading apps. I've yet to have an issuing using Google Chrome and the plugin method.

    From my Z10 to YOU, BOO-YAH!

    Thanks! I am still working my way around. Any idea why the battery drains so fast. I'm running the 10.1 Software and OS. I check updates and its says up to date.

    I have yet to get the sideload done.
