    I got Lyft to work finally! After trying a bunch of different ways with GMAPS patcher i gave up and tried Lucky Patcher and it worked! I have Q10 with OS 10.2.1.3253 and went through Cobalt's steps with a minor tweak:

    1. Installed Lucky Patcher 4.4.4 using the browser through my phone with the 1st mirror (2nd mirror, MEGA, gave me an error "Unable to Install this App")
    2. Installed Google Play Services 6.6.03

    Then went through Cobalt's steps with one minor tweak:
    Patching procedure
    1. Run Lucky Patcher
    2. On main screen, choose Rebuild & Install
    3. Find the file you want to patch
    4. Tap on filename and select Rebuild
    5. Choose Apk without License Verification
    6. Select Auto Mode (This is the minor tweak)
    7. Select Remove Dependencies

    Lyft works great besides one thing, when I try to go to driver mode it asks me to update the app and goes back to the home screen. Looks like Lyft can only be used as a passenger to get a ride but not as a driver.

    If you have all the necessary files Google requires to trick apps into working and after patching they still don't work, it's always possible the apps just won't work of your device. While Cobalt's tools are a life saver for us they're not going to make every single app work. Sadly it's not a perfect solution and it will not be 100% successful all the time.

    Jeez....
    I see Soooo many posts, Cobalt must be a *very* patient man!

    **Blackberry does NOT support Google Services. - For various reasons, some good (security), some unfortunate.
    *IF Google plus is an ESSENTIAL component of a particular app you will NOT be able to run that particular function, if run it at all.
    * This means that *most* apps with the Google Services component WILL RUN, but with LIMITED functions (Namely, any function that *depends* on Google Services
    * In THESE cases, the best that can hoped for is to remove the "Google Services" nags by following the instructions provided by Cobalt.
    * Google Services is NOT magically going to work for the portions of apps that *depend* on it.

    We can all hope that someday, if it makes sense to Blackberry (AND all the contractual/ financial stuff is worked out), Google Services will be available to us. For now, no patch or magiical "fix" is going to change reality.

    THANK YOU Cobalt for your great work in making many of these apps at least usable!

    After clicking Analyse on GMaps Patcher it comes up with the message: '...please configure the Java path in options menu...' what do I need to do/how do I do this?
    Also in GMaps Patcher on the Output setting there is no text for Recommended Patch or anything?

    Thank you!

    I don't believe Hangout will work on BB because it requires Google Play Services, which also doesn't work on BB. Someone can correct me if I'm incorrect.

    when i was patching this hangout i remove dependency services. i was expecting the requirement of play service may be skipped while patching..

    i suspect something with google app permission or apps specific password etc.. since it was the same issue while installing play store, it was not connecting to internet. i use the bb google id tool which was posted by mr cobalt

    Known issue. Version 7.1(?) seems to work. Do a search for the apk.

    Update: Version 7.7 is my installed version.

    That was the one I was looking for but couldn't find it. Actually I just checked it's 7.7 that I installed, it works ok.
