    What kind of .bar fiels are you trying to load? Were these converted from .apk? If so you need OS 2 to run those via the android player... If not, let's see if we can help you

    I was following this tutorial.

    How To: Side Load PlayBook Apps (Windows) | BlackBerry Empire

    I got my .bar files from the list on here

    i tried loading gmail and kindle, and when you press the icon nothing happens =/

    i don't have android player installed, i just installed the .bar straight to the playbook.

    Warning OS2 is still developers beta and is a little unstable , some things do not work like bridge and video chat.

    Forgive me for being a PlayBook newb, but can this only be done on OS 2?

    You can only sideload Android apps on OS2.

    You can sideload other bar files on OS1. You need to set one of the options (security???) on the pb to Developer Mode otherwise it will not work.

    I have never had OS2 and I've sideloaded a second browser, Dosbox and some other apps.
