    Hello forum,
    before the buying of my Z30, I read it can install simply files .apk (Android-based).
    Now I am an happy owner of this phone but when I download an .apk file, I'm not able to install it.
    How can I do?
    (sorry for my bad english)

    I don't know if its different on a Z30 from my Z10 but you need to convert the apk to a bar file. And then use an app like vnBB to install it by sideloading. A guide to do that is linked in my signature.

    Are you trying to install APK files directly using the Web Browser from your phone? If that's what you are trying to do, you will need to install the latest leak OS (or the older one: I highly recommend the OS because apps load much faster.

    Before installing any leak OS (if you've never done so before) always make sure to backup all your important data via BlackBerry Link or some other back up apps like Fire Chest Backup etc because any leak OS will wipe out all the data that you have on your phone.


    If you get stuck with anything, just give us a shout and we'll be more than happy to assist.
