One-Click Install of Android apps on BlackBerry PlayBook with BBH-Tool

One-Click Install of Android apps on BlackBerry PlayBook with BBH-Tool

The other day when the beta version of the Android app player for the BlackBery PlayBook leaked out, we showed you a how-to walk-through to install Android .APK files. Our friend JD at BBH-Plus has worked his magic and implemented a one-click install for Android apps to the Android app player of the PlayBook.

All that you have to do is make sure your PlayBook is in development mode (like you would to side-load .bar files), enter in your PlayBooks information, select the Android app .APK files, make sure the Android app player is open on your PlayBook, and then click install. If all goes well, you’ll get a pop-up message letting you know the files were successfully installed.

This makes for the easiest way to install 3rd party apps to the Android app player. If they don’t first appear, go to a different section of the Android app player. Once you swipe back, the homescreen should have refreshed and the newly loaded Android apps icons will appear. Give a big shout out to @theiexplorers for his awesome work!

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
