    I have a Samsung S8 which supersedes my beloved and much missed Z30!

    I'm trying to 'BlackBerryfy' it as much as possible. Stumbled on one problem on the keyboard.

    I have found it on the Play Store but it says "Your device isn't compatible with this version."

    A bit of research suggests that I need Cobalt's BB Manager apk - I have downloaded this and hit another stumbling block: my device is work managed and the IT policy restricts installing apps from 'unknown' sources.

    Is there a workaround?

    Thanks in advance

    No workaround. If installing apps from unknown sources is blocked, you are out of luck.

    Direct installation is the only way to get the keyboard as BlackBerry's licensing from Swiftkey does not allow them to offer it to non BlackBerry devices. And installation from other than Google Play require "unknown" sources for security purposes.

    OK - thanks both.

    As expected! I'll have to do without (or 'break' my phone....!)

    Cheers

    @Cobalt232, hi there, why does your play store workaround for bbos 10 seemingly crash the software on 10.3.3.2205? What's the fix if any?
