    Drove UBER this morning with no issue. Tonight it wants to update before going online. So I patched them all. I think they all work. Will know shortly as I try to go back online. My file link is on first page, first post courtesy of tatail.

    Lyft and Uber Cab updates today....

    Thansk SG701,
    Another tip, don't archive the old apks because both the companies force you to update, so there is no use for them.

    What I do is I click on Upload New Version.. it keeps track of the number of downloads and the number of versions and all that.

    Hi tatail, thank you for this. Just one glitch. I'm not been able to connect both apps while on mobile data. They are functional only on wifi. Do I need to do something? Earlier version were working fine. Please let me know. Thanks. Here are the screen shots for both.

    It is not about connectivity..
    The reason it asks you to turn on WiFi is because it wants to find your location.

    What I usually do is I turn on WiFi, you don't have to be connected to anything Wifi just turn it on and after that go to the app and go online.

    You can safely turn off Wifi after that.

    I have written about this in the first post.

    Good luck

    Taxi For Sure wants to improve location, but I have no idea why Ola Cabs would suggest no Internet connection available.

    I'll try the "upload new" option on the next upload. The only reason I did the archive was that I had updated Uber Driver one night just before driving and found out it did not work at all. I uninstalled it and went back to the prior version and it actually worked. Every other time the version is off it minimizes it and opens Snap to download the newest.
    One question, I've found WAZE working better with LYFT than Google Maps on my Z30 so I'm now using that. I am currently patching the latest revision but I thought I'd ask if there is anything specific I should know about the configuration for patching WAZE? Thank again tatail

    It worked for both ! Thank you so much.

    It's weird though... I never had to turn on wifi for both on their earlier versions. They worked perfectly without that.

    Any chances to solve Ola's 'Unable to find location' and not displaying map? It serves the purpose after entering pick up address but I was hoping to see the map and my location with this new version.

    Taxi for Sure displays map and current location perfectly... even on its earlier version it used to work flawless.

    If you want to run the patched Lyft, Uber or other location based app, you need the following setup:

    1. Install the Google Account app 4.3.3 and login to Google
    2. Install Blackberry Google ID 2.7 and checkin your device with Google
    3. Install Google Play Services 8.4.89

    These 3 files are absolutely required to run the full Google Play Services stack, which provides GPS and Network based positioning. That setup will also enable Google Maps to support my places, location history, offline maps and everything else.


    This overview should help to get a better understanding of the Google setup on a Blackberry device:

    Cobalt, first, let me thank you very much for your wonderful work done on Google services for BlackBerry and letting us experience android apps on our BB10's. Because of you, now I have Google Play Store on my Z30

    Yes, I have followed all your steps and installed all three files required before installing patched apps.


    I'm not much in apps but always struggled to get basic taxi services apps like Ola and Taxi for Sure which are very effective and useful for quickly hiring taxis in India. Thanks to tatail, now I have both these apps on my phone.

    Taxi for Sure displays location and map perfectly on both its versions I used till now but Ola couldn't display map and location on its latest and earlier version. But it can be used entering the location manually. It's same for many friends here but don't know why it's not been able to display map and current location.

    Cobalt, I'm running a Z30 on Verizon with the following:
    BB 10.3.2.556
    Google Play Service v8.4.89-cobalt.apk
    Lyft v3.21.0.22169-patched.apk
    Uber Driver v3.64.0-patched.apk
    Waze v3.9.7.0-patched.apk

    I don't have the Google Account App. or Blackberry Google ID installed, yet, outside of some performance hangups, Lyft, Uber, and Waze run relatively okay. I'm tempted to install the Account and ID apps, but I can't help but think of the line "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". However, IF it is confirmed that Lyft, Uber and Waze run WAY better with the Account App. and ID App installed, I'll go through the process. Can you (or anyone for that matter) provide any feedback on performance with and without these installed?
    Thanks and thank you for your work on these apps!

    Without the 2 additional apps you won't have network based location positioning. That means that your location can only be determined, if you have GPS Satellites in sight. In closed rooms, you won't get location lock.

    I finally got it working. Had to reinstall everything. From the Google account, id, GPS, Maps and Uber, with all the latest patched apps.

    Thanks so much to Cobalt and all those that provide the patched apps, kudos and best wishes from Mexico!

    It'll work a lot better.. I have had those apps installed and it has been great so far.

    Also, follow Cobalt232's instruction on making sure you have wireless location tracking enabled with Google ID.
