    #BBQ10.3... I am using playbook extension in chrome and i was able to sideload any apk or bar file. Today i tried to sideload apps but after finishing all, i see an error "500" on every apk file. I haven't tried any bar file. But no apk sideloading at all. But if i transfer file to phone and everything goes fine through phone's installer.

    APK files don't work on the PlayBook, so while you may think you loaded APK files before, you didn't. They need to be converted to .BAR files and since you said you never tried .BAR files, that's 99% of your problem.

    Never tried to "sideload" an APK... that was something I use to do with BAR files. For an APK to "install" it has to run through the installation process. Have you ever been able to "sideload" an APK?

    Why bother trying to "sideload" them anyway.

    And, as noted already, apk files can't be sideloaded that way. The method that the Chrome extension uses expects the file to be a *.bar file.
