Google Play Store 5.1.11 Build 5

This version saves a copy of the downloaded apk file in the download folder. The downloaded files are never cleaned out from there, so keep an eye on your free space and remove unneeded apk’s from time to time. The download links in the first post have been updated.

Changelog:

  • Updated downloader code, now saves apk files in downloads folder for backup
  • Updated installer code (canceling a installation is done immediately)

I really wasn’t sure about how I should implement the apk saving feature into Play Store. Snap doesn’t support the saving of purchased apps and I understand the reasons why James did’t implement it. But there are so many free Backup apps around, even on Google Play, that allow to back up purchased apps so that it really shouldn’t matter if the store does it directly. Therefore this version of Play Store saves free and purchased apps to the download folder. Please use this feature responsibly.

Enjoy!

Thanks to user Cobalt on CB, we now have the privilege of almost all Google dependent Android Apps on BlackBerry 10. Read the entire thing carefully. I’ll ignore silly questions from users that clearly haven’t read the post fully.

Edit: MEGA Link for all Apps
GOOGLE LOGIN
GOOGLE LOGIN

The Google Login APK provides a basic support for Android apps that require a Google login. It is required for some apps such as Google Maps, Google Play store or Chrome browser. Google+ accounts are currently not supported. Install the Google Login APK and then go to Blackberry settings -> Accounts -> Add new account. You should see a new option called Google Account. Login from there.

Mirror Link
GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES
GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES

The Google Play services APK contains several individual Google services and runs as a background service in the Android OS runtime. The most important part for Blackberry users is the integrated maps provider, which is used in several Android apps to display map content. Some apps also require Google Play services to access advertising or crash analytics features. Without Google Play services, these apps either crash, spit out a message about Google Play services missing or just display an empty map with no content. Please note: Apps that require Google Play services always require patching. Please read the Patching section for more details.

PATCHING
PATCHING
Apps that require Google Play services must be patched in order to run on a Blackberry device. Patching is required because my modified Google Play services is signed with a non-Google signing key and this key doesn’t match to the hardcoded key in the apps. To learn more about how to patch your favorite app you should read the following two threads:

When running Google Play store for the first time, the app may crash 1 or 2 times, this is due to some initialization stuff that fails. Just run it again until you see the welcome screen.

If you don’t like the notifications Google Maps is sending to your hub, you can turn them off like this:

Please note that you cannot login to Google Maps if you have Google Play services (com.google.android.gms.apk) installed together with Google Login Services. The two interfere with each other. It’s one or the other.
