    The rumor is that the new BBM on Android supports Gingerbread devices. Since the Android Runtime on the PlayBook is Gingerbread-based, has anyone given it a try?

    It will require native code most likely so it won't work
    Not to mention that it has a code in the apk that won't let android runtimes start the apk
    Try running it on BB10 runtime. It will force close

    On a more serious note, a bunch of us did convert the apk to bar and it didn't work as mentioned. The Android runtime opened then crashed even after a cold reboot. But that won't stop us from trying.

    Yes the Gingerbread version...and the second part, quite possibly true.

    Did you use BlackBerry Command Line Tools? Converted APK to BAR and used the BlackBerry signer or token option so it can install properly?

    I downloaded BBM on my gingerbread phone. Extracted the apk using another app. Converted it to bar but it won't sideload.
