HOW TO INSTALL Google Play Store for BlackBerry 10
Download the 3 files listed below to your Blackberry device by clicking on the download links. Then install and run the files in the described order.
Step 1: Add a Google system account to your device
Install com.google.android.gsf.login. Run the app and login with your Google credentials. The app will close (minimize) if the step completed successfully.
Step 2: Register your device with Google Play
Install cobalt.blackberry.androidID. Run the app and register your device with Google Play. Close the app after successfull registration.
Step 3: Install Google Play Store
Install com.android.vending. Run and enjoy the Play Store!
All 3 apps MUST remain installed on your device otherwise Google Play store will not work.
By default, Play Store automatically downloads updates for your installed apps. This causes Play Store to pop up when an update was successfully downloaded. This is not a bug! If you don’t like that behaviour, you can turn off autoupdate in Play Store settings. You will then still receive notifications about available updates, but you will have to fetch them manually in the apps section of Play Store settings.

Does this work on any device?

I’m using two factor authentication with my Google account. How must I proceed?
If you are using Google two factor authentication with your Google account you’ll have to create an app specific password to login to the Blackberry Google ID app. If you don’t use two factor authentication or if you don’t know what that is, you must do nothing. Just enter your normal Google email password if asked for a password.
I’m receiving the message “Error while retrieving information from server [DF-DFERH-01]”
This error may occour if Google changes something on their servers and the Play Store app did not sync correctly. It is a well know issue that also happens on Android devices. To fix this problem, go to Blackberry Settings -> App Manager -> Device Monitor -> Storage -> Play Store and click on “Clear Data”. This will clear the cache and fix the problem.
Ok, I understand that Google Play Store works. What about Google Play services?
Google Play services is a Framework that is provided by Google to help developers to speed up and simplify app development. Some apps that you download from Play Store may require Google Play services (mostly apps from Google, apps that display some kind of geographic map and apps that require Google+ login). These apps can be patched and will work to a certain extent. Read this post for more details:

Are you logging my account data or stealing my money?
I believe that I have quite a reputation here on Crackberry and I don’t want to lose it, so NO data is logged or transferred anywhere else than to the Google servers. Your data and your money is secure.
Is this all for free?
Yes, it is! But please consider that I’ve spent hundreds of hours doing the reverse engineering of all this stuff, patching it, rewriting code and testing it. So if you really appreciate my work, I would be happy if you donate a few bucks. But it’s up to you.
