    Install Android market on the paybook

    So you finally got your playbook... And then .. the system is BBX or BlackBerry 10 (also BBX as BB = Blackberry and X = 10 . Your and android junkie it's doesn't match until now.

    You can install the android market following these steps

    1. Install the 2.0 beta on your PlayBook. (get it here)

    2. Root your PlayBook using the Dingleberry tool found at dingleberry.it (instructions here)

    3. Download the Google apps package - get it here

    4. Install and launch an Android app packaged as a .bar file in order to set up the Android system. I would recommend installing a launcher app of some kind since you will need one to launch the Market and related apps - A bunch can be found here

    5. Log into your PlayBook as root with an scp client (eg: WinSCP for Windows). Copy the system folder in the Google apps download to the root of your PlayBook and merge it with the system folder there.

    6. Open up a root ssh shell and remove “/system/app/SetupWizard.apk” (this can by done by typing in “mv /system/app/SetupWizard.apk /system/app/SetupWizard.apk.bak”.

    7. Kill the running Android player “cd /apps/sys.android.XXXX.ns/native/scripts” (XXXX will be different for each device) and run “./android-player-cmd.sh kill-android-core.sh”

    8. Launch a launcher app of some kind. Start up Android Market (or any other Google app), enter your account details and it will start working. This trick will also install Google Chat and a few other goodies. The Android Market works and will install things after you do this.

    9. Play around with the Android player and find other cool things!

    Have fun,

    Greetz,

    After rooting and installing Andriod Market on my BlackBerry Playbook the Playbook browser doesn't work anymore. It launches but will not bring up any tab for webpage afterwards.
    Any idea on how to fix this problem?
