    Can someone please re-upload Rock Player 1.7? I've been searching a long time for a video player that will play any videos on Playbook.

    TIA

    Here some apps that are Running on my Playbook trough the Android Player:

    - Hootsuite (Without Notifications, nothing comes in according to the set Time Interval)
    - ABN Amro Bankieren
    - GetGlue
    - Evernote
    - Tapatalk (Without Notifcations, nothing comes in according to the set Time Interval)
    - Seesmic (With Notifications, on Time Interval)
    - Twitter (Without Notifcations, no option to set a Time Interval so we can say "Push" won't work?)
    - IMDB (V1 & V2)
    - Guitar hero 5
    - Paper Toss
    - Wordfeud (Without Notifcations, no option to set a Time Interval so we can say "Push" won't work?)

    - Wunderlist (Although Apps that are marked "Today" on my Desktop and BlackBerry are Marked "Yesterday" on my Playbook, also Syncing seems to have some issues).

    Apps that don't work:

    - UberSocial (Keeps asking for Amazone Appstore, which *.bar I can't find, to try)

    The next android apps, converted from .apk to .bar (thanks to HaTaX), are not working:

    Mystery Island Free-7
    Mystery of the Crystal Portal_ v1.2
    The Secret of Grisly Manor v2.0
    The Lost City

    Has anybody a barfile that does work? or other searchgame barfiles or names?

    or any hidden object games?

    Thanks

    anyone wasting time with other people's bar files should be complaining to RIM that you have to in the first place and insist they provide a method to unlock the bootloader to give the freedom to actually install something of value on what would otherwise be a nice piece of hardware.

    and as an aside, when you blindly install apk x, packaged and signed by user y, how do you know that user y hasn't changed up the Android Manifest to run their own activity first and then hand you the original start activity without you ever knowing?

    Just found it. Haven't looked at this thread in a while. It's not bad, just a few tweaks.

    Okay so I'm able to go into Google play and I can select apps that say they are compatible with the playbook I then click to download and it says installing but I never get it to actually be on the playbook. Am I doing something wrong?
