    The apk file shows the version in the file name. com.android.vending-cobalt-buy5.apk = build 5
    Seems I guessed right, thanks for explaining it.


    As the Google package build number still is 5.1.1 you must uninstall the old Play Store and then install the new version. No Update.
    Yes, to be safe I assumed I would need to delete and install and also assumed I would need to start from step 3 in the first post again, but since I was already signed in with the Google ID the Play Store just worked right away and I successfully installed an app with a saved apk. This is really incredible Cobalt, I don't think you can be thanked enough for contributions like this to our community so thanks again for your hard work!

    I agree! Cobalt232 really has done so much in making the switch from a Android phone to BlackBerry so easy and painless.

    Google Play Store 5.1.11 Build 5

    This version saves a copy of the downloaded apk file in the download folder. The downloaded files are never cleaned out from there, so keep an eye on your free space and remove unneeded apk's from time to time.

    Tried step 1 and step 2 as said on the first post. Google play installs and shows everything. But when I try to download an app by pressing install button the app force closes and shows 'unfortunately Google play has stopped'. Then it keeps showing when I try to open play store. Any clue?

    You either need to update your OS to 10.3, or use the previous v4 version if the Google Playstore

    Cobalt, you may want to edit the FAQ in the first post to share awareness of the problems with 10.2.1 and obb files.

    Yup. Just install it and login. If you get Google play services errors, check out cobalt's patching thread in his signature.

    Google Play Store 5.1.11 Build 5

    This version saves a copy of the downloaded apk file in the download folder. The downloaded files are never cleaned out from there, so keep an eye on your free space and remove unneeded apk's from time to time. The download links in the first post have been updated.
    Thanks very much for this update Cobalt. I appreciate all your efforts in making Google work. I hope you continue to develop "apps" like this for BlackBerry devices and don't become discouraged from doing more in the future. Between this and your patcher, I don't know what's next but I'm looking forward to seeing what it might be. Cheers!

    Maybe v4? But your best bet is to probably download and install a 10.3.1 OS.
