    Simple question, is it possible to root the android runtime environment on our bb10 phones? There are a few little things that if I could do on my phone, I'd go back to using one phone rather than carry a second device. I'm almost there, and this would put it over the top. The reason I would want this is because some files are hidden and the only way I could figure to see them would be to root it. The reason rooting would work is because on android, with a rooted phone it also shows these hidden files and folders.

    Yes there is. You see with *nix based OS's gaining root access is the same as going from a limited user to an admin account on Windows.

    In terms of Android, there's nothing to root. It's a wrapper for the app and a bunch of api support. Good luck rooting a secure BB10/QNX device.

    Well, you can root BB10.0.9.

    Also it's quite likely you can root the Android Player right now. However, that only gives you access to the 'android_root' user account.

    Only because it gets patched when it is re-introduced.

    I side loaded a banking app (Sparkasse Germany) and upon startup it notified me that my android device were rooted and that it would be potentially dangerous to run a banking app on a rooted device.

    The app let me proceed none the less.

    That's all you need for root required android apps though!

    The rooting/jailbreak scene is the one thing I truly miss about the Blackberry experience. I don't know why but I just love messing about, and leaks are the closest it comes to.

    But I know one thing for sure, if there's one guy who can get such a scene going, it's xsacha.

    The question is why do you want to root a bb10? People root android phones to install custom ROMs. As for bb10 devices, there is only one OS. All the normal android apps don't need root access. Any app that asks for root access must be trusted. An app installed with root access has total control of the device. Keep that in mind when granting SU access to an app. The way BB10 runs android apps is similar to VMware/vbox player. As for rooting bb10 OS, it can be done. However, it's a dangerous thing to do because it's open up a security hole in the device.

    you sure it can be done? it has only been done once for playbook as far as i know and even then you had to do it every time you rebooted your phone

    Yes it can be done. Rooting PB was a logical thing since back then PB OS 1.0 or 2.0 wasn't fully functional. Hence, the need for rooting to run android apps. However, once PB OS 2.1 came out, there wasn't a point to root it since android apps (gingerbread) could be sideloaded and run smoothly. As I previously stated, the only reason to root a device is to install a better ROM/firmware. People don't really spend time to root bb10 devices because there is no purpose to do so. I have a working theory to load any ROM/OS that compatible with PB or BB10 hardware. However, playing with PB/BB10 is just a hobby. I cant just spend all free time for a hobby. If you want to xp with PB/bb10, download the simulator and play with it in VMware or Vbox. I probably gonna try to load bb10.3 on PB. I know that PB hardware can run bb10.3 since I setup the bb10.3 sim to the same specs as PB, and it runs. BB10.3 would run fine on PB hardware specs if only 1 or 2 apps run simultaneously due to 1G ram. BB10.3 cant be loaded into PB due to the difference in partitions. In order to load bb10.3 into PB, the internal PB partition must reconfig. I have a theory how to do this usinf cfp. Reverse-eng a program of 15MB in assembly is a very time consuming.
