    OK guys I think what most of us need is a step by step instruction for dummys. Since I am no developer and it took me forever to figure this out I wrote a detailed stey by step instructions which even the most technically deprived can understand. These instructions are for Windows based computers. Here it goes.....

    1) Request BlackBerry Code Signing Keys by applying at: https://www.blackberry.com/SignedKeys/codesigning.html
    2) After your order is processed you will receive two separate emails with each one containing a .csj file
    3) Download both .csj files to your computer and save
    4) Install the Java JDK onto your computer. You can download the JDK at Java SE Downloads
    5) Install the Android SDK onto your computer. You can download the Android SDK at the original post of this thread.
    6) After the Android SDK is installed onto your computer the Android SDK Manager will open
    7) While the Android SDK Manager is open deselect the checkbox for Android 4.2.2 and select the checkbox for Android 2.3.3 then click on “Install Packages”. You can install the 4.2.2 files once OS 10.2 is released but for OS 10.0 and 10.1 we need the 2.3.3 files.
    8) Next Navigate to the directory where the SDK was Installed which would be in Program Files. Copy ALL of the files located in the folder at C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\build-tools\17.0.0 and paste them in the “platform-tools” folder located at C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools. You can overwrite any files when prompted.
    9) Next Download the Android Package available in the original post of this thread then unzip the files.
    10) Then locate the file a-registertokens.
    11) Right click on a-registertokens and select edit
    12) Enter the Passpin which you supplied to BlackBerry when you requested the Code Signing Keys in step one.
    13) Then enter a Passkey which you will remember. (I used the same as my Passpin so it would be easy for me to remember).
    14) Both the Passpin and the Passkey must be entered immediately following the = symbol. (Example: PASSPIN=abc123 and PASSKEY=abc123). Then save the file before exiting.
    15) Next select both .csj files which were emailed to you in step 2 and drag and drop them on the a-registertokens file which you have just completed editing.
    16) Then right click the file b-createdebugtoken and select edit and enter the same Passkey (which is really your Passpin which you used in step 12) and your device PIN. Just like in step 12 they must be entered immediately after the = symbol as illustrated in step 14. Save the file and close.
    17) If everything went successfully then you should see a debugtoken.bar file populate in the same folder. Sideload this debugtoken.bar file onto your device now. Note: This will be the only debugtoken.bar file that you would need to create. You do not need to create one for each app.
    18) Next right click on the y-android2bb file and edit the directory where the Android SDK was installed. Mine was entered as ANDROID_HOME=C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk. Save the file and exit.
    19) Now drag and drop any .apk Android file on top of the y-android2bb file which you have just completed editing. Both a .bar file and a .wrn file should show up in the same folder.
    20) Sideload the .bar file only and enjoy. The .wrn file can be deleted.
    21) Repeat steps 19 and 20 for each app you want to convert. Whewww….

    but I do?? or am I doing something wrong?. Using the latest upload on a mac.

    btw thank you xsacha and everybody else (you know who y'all are) that are giving so much to this community, your efforts are not unappreciated.
    As I said earlier, XSacha's scripts are not fully handling MacOS and Linux.

    On these system, you'll need:
    - Java
    - Android SDK ! (binaries are not the same than windows)
    - These scripts: Zippyshare.com - android_to_BB_Linux_version.zip

    XSacha, can you post my scripts on the first topic ?
    People are just struggling with their mac, your script, and this 1000 post topic... :/

    xsacha, when converting apks to bars with the new scripts, sometimes there is a line that says "Missing PUSH configuration file" in the command prompt. is that a check for the application PUSH capability?

    Xsacha,

    Is there any workaround if the file author.p12 isn't generated. The keys are registered and the two other files are generated except author. What could I be doing wrong.

    i experienced the same thing. this was how i resolved it. delete the two barsigner files, then go back to the config.txt file (that's assuming you are using 'Android-Pack-15June-6'), and edit it, make sure the PASSPIN is the same PIN you provided on blackberry's signing keys request page. the PASSKEY can be anything you won't forget and also fill DEVICEPIN appropriately and save. now drag the two csj files over a-registertokens, everything should go well from there. go back to that directory. the author.p12, and the two barsigner files should be there.

    How did you manage to run it on your mac? . I have my debugtoken.bar im just stuck on making the bar files.

    And i think the reason why your apps arnt running is cause you didnt load debugtoken.bar in your phone yet.
