Android Runtime update now available in BlackBerry World


For those of you on the latest official OS experiencing Android app issues such as deleting apps, BlackBerry had issued an update to the Android runtime available in BlackBerry World. Many had issues downloading previously, and it appears the issues have been corrected. You can download the update here.


Long time lover of all things BlackBerry, from the Bold 9000 thru to the Passport and now the Priv. Always dreaming of the next new BlackBerry to add to my collection. Had the rest, now got the best!

    Anyone tried to update ?

    I have Roy, seems ok at this stage. Haven’t tried deleting Android apps yet, don’t have any on my Passport

    It’s fixing only this problem ?

    what if apps don’t work properly ?

    • Wayno

      I believe it’s only for the deleting of Android apps Roy, When the OS was originally updated the Android apps wouldn’t delete properly, this fix resolves that. I could be wrong though, it does state that it fixes Android apps that wouldn’t launch. Make sure you restart your device after downloading this fix.

    I get an ‘Unknown Item’ webpage error both on my Passport and the laptop from the link locco_smiley_38

      Hi Vorpal,
      In you browser on Passport, go to Settings /Developer Options and make sure desktop mode is turned Off. It won’t work with a laptop or desktop computer either, must be done from your device. Please let me know if that works for you.
