    I've rooted my playbook using the apache method and it all seems to be working fine expect for some apps. I need the "myhome" control4 app but I also realized the angry birds apps don't work either. When i open the apps I get the message "The application Angry Birds (process.com.rovio.angrybirds) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again"
    I've tried wiping the apps and starting the entire rooting process over again on 2 different playbooks and can't get these two apps to work. I'm using Honeycomb Launcher. Any help would be appreciated even if someone could download the "my home" control 4 app from the market open it and press connect to see if they get the same message it may help.

    Thanks in advance

    only a small percentage of android apps are a direct working model.
    only i would say 25% will work off of Market, the apps you want are part of the 75% that will not work.

    Welcome to CrackBerry and feel free to do some research around here on the rooting aspect of the Playbook.

    Thanks for the reply, can we install android 3.0 yet? If so do you think some that currently don't work may work then? Or how about ice cream sandwich would that make a difference?

    Thanks again

    No you can't install ICS or Honeycomb (4.0 and 3.0).

    and to add to howamat you can't add a higher version or downgrade to a lower version on Android since its embedded into the os.

    Thanks for the additional info, what I need to do is get the "my home" by control 4 app functional, it loads fine but when I press the "identify" button it keeps giving me that forced close message. There's a "Test drive" button that works fine so it confirms the app is funcional but for some reason the "identify" button gives that message. If anyone out there doens't mind downloading the app to see if they get the same message I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks again.

    @Audible,

    Did you ever get Myhome to work on your PlayBook? I've gotten the same results that you posted. About to order my Z10 and hoping it will work on there if not the playbook.
