    I'm an Isilo user, and Isilo has no version for playbook.

    last few months, I learned that there's a way to install android apps with a beta OS. being a noob with devices, I decided not to mess up with my PB with beta version.

    so I waited patiently, for OS 2, I used adobe reader instead..

    ALAS! yesterday, I just downloaded and installed OS2, and I think I deserve to have Isilo in my PB.

    I was hoping that I will be able to install Isilo android version in my PB.

    I searched the new OS for an app or a player that runs android apps, and searched the settings, but I couldn't find it.

    please help me, and make me understand how to install Isilo.

    I have like 5 friends waiting also to use Isilo in Playbook.

    another question is, I usually read Tabs while playing guitar, so while playing and reading tab pdfs in playbook, sometimes the playbook turns black, must me screen saver, how do you keep it on even idle.

    I don't see why the old android bars wouldn't work with official OS 2.0. Try using the old method with DPBB installer

    Although I haven't tried it or seen otherwise...can anyone comment?

    If you get this solved...that would be great - I'll keep watching.
    Have a look at post #54 http://forums.crackberry.com/android...97/index4.html

    Tested .bar files work perfectly on the new OS. I have Kindle App. up and running. Was easy to do as well.

    Follow the link posted above and follow the instructions.

    How did you do it - I can't get it loaded. The DDPB says "installed" but nothing on my PB

    Can you help me?

    I used the bar file in the link given,
    used the ddpb

    added the bar file, and installed.

    the Isilo icon is then located as the last icon.
    tested a book, and it works fine.

    it's so simple.

    I was able to see the icon but I could not start the app.

    I tried download couple times, reinstalled couple times, and reboot after but still only see the iSilo icon but cannot start it.

    Please help!

    I tested like 5 different Android apps and they all installed and showed icon but just could not start. I was reading some other posting, and suggested a security wipe may do it.

    I did a backup of all my files, and did wipe, and after the initial setup & update I did the side-loading again, and now all Android apps work.

    My guess is I did try the Android player in the past, and some how it may still in the system, and security wipe just clean everything up.
