    Will this patch improve the Google map performance in STL100-1 device where the new versions of Map seem to lag/freeze? Not sure if the lag is related to Google play services.

    The Google maps v7 freeze issue is specific to STL 1, other variants of BB10 don't experience it. The patch can't help in this case, as i believe it might be a CPU issue.

    I'm guessing you want this because you have two different BlackBerry IDs and you are hoping that this would put both on the device at once? It's the only possible explanation I can think of and it's still a little odd as every BlackBerry comes with a perfect version of BBM out of the box, but you could always attempt to patch the app yourself if you really require multiple BBM accounts active at the same time. You are in the perfect place, lots of information on what you need to do to make it happen. Are you even sure it would need to be patched? I feel like if an android port of a BlackBerry native app doesn't work on a BlackBerry without patching it would be kind of funny.

    Read the post just above your first one. Says that Google Maps should NOT be patched.

    The special case of that tornado app inspired me to make the patcher a bit more configurable. The tornado app has the special behaviour that it uses Google Maps API v1 and v2. The patcher detects the usage of both API's and patches them. So far so good. But when testing the app I recognized, that the shelters would not display correctly. So I did some research and found out, that the app works just fine with Maps APIv1 and that only API v2 and Google Play had to be patched. This situation couldn't be handled by the patcher, as it autodetects everything and patches what it finds.

    So here we have a new version v0.9 which is configurable regarding the features it should patch. The preconfigured settings should work for most of the apps. In special cases, you can play with the options to get the best result.

    Changelog:
    New: Added new tab with advanced options menu to configure behaviour of autopatching

    The original post has been updated with the new dowloadlink.

    Can we proceed to updating APKs through SNAP regularly after patching or do we need to keep repatching new versions of apps?

    Hi,

    I love running and I love zombies.. so i thought i have to get "Zombies, Run!" for my Z30!

    This morning i spent several hours patching "Zombies, Run!" - PlayStore Link

    First i read in the Forums that the problem may be correlated to the fact that the App title contains an comma character. So i spent a long time in getting APKTool to run (no one tells about how to get aapt and copy it to the dir). I edited the strings.xml file and removed the comma and the exclamation mark. But the apps still doesn't install - app cannot be installed.

    Then I walked through the threat where all this started, found the link to your very first dos command based app and tried to convert without success. Then I found this thread and converted the original apk successful. Again it failed to install.

    So i thought maybe it's both, the name and the gmaps api. So i tried to patch the cleaned up version i have done with apktool before. But unfortunatly this didn't work neither. Can you image what else prevents this app from being installed?

    [edit]
    It works now... well the app installs and runs, but i cannot download Audio Files through the app.

    I realized that "comma-patched" version wasn't correct, because i still saw the commas in the Blackberry App Install dialogue.
    So i did it again, this time doing the whole process in the Gmaps Patcher.
    1. Open Gmaps Patcher
    2. Under Options Choose "Rebuild even if no patching (pause before rebuilding)
    3. remove any blanks and special characters from file name
    4. Drag&Drop APK File to GMaps Patcher
    5. Patch
    6. When the Dialogue box appear go into the /tmp directory and remove the comma and the exclamation mark from the Apps name in /res/values/strings.xml. You find it under <string name="app_name">.
    7. save and close the XML
    8. press OK in the dialogue
    9. copy to device an install


    Maybe you should check the App Name as well.

    Thanks in advance
    David

    Both yelp and Groupon should work fine. Did you remember to install com.google.android.gms.apk from the output folder?

    Have you downloaded the patcher and tried it yourself yet? If you do and it fails post the log, maybe somebody will pick up on the problem.

    Cobalt, I was wondering if you could help out with trying to get Active911 app. I'm a volunteer fire fighter, other members have iPhones or Android , couple of us have BBs. App runs but won't connect to Active911 server, keep getting error message "Registration with Active911 failed. Check your internet connection and retry your Device Code." I have tried patching with Gmaps but no luck.

    Yeah that was it. Groupon finally works! Thanks for having this fixed. Most apps patched still crash though. I have tried the following with the latest 0.9 patcher with the following results:

    Groupon - works!
    Tripadvisor - Crashes, but Cobalt's Dropbox link earlier in this thread provides a version that works with Google maps
    GMaps - Crashes
    Yelp - Worked when I had the broken patched GMaps installed, but once I downloaded the unpatched GMaps from Snap, it gives me the Ninja Dinosaur error and can't find my GPS. So I had to go back to the Yelp from SNAP without maps
    Travelzoo - Crashes

    I'm running the latest leak, 10.2.1.29xx on Z30 on Rogers if that helps. I believe I did the patching process correctly (downloaded from Snap, extract APK from phone, patched, copied apks from output folder onto my phone and then installed). Still, happy I got Groupon and Tripadvisor working! Morning well spent

    Re: yelp -- I believe there's a "Patch signature permissions" check box in the advanced options of the patcher you can toggle to get it to work (though personally I've had mixed results. I use the yelp mobile site instead since I keep seeing that darn dinosaur!).

    Gmaps - doesn't need patching! Should work straight from snap.
