Video: Android Market, Android Native Email and Google Apps On The BlackBerry PlayBook
@neuralic, one of the DingleBerry creators has just released the video demo above showing the power of the DingleBerry Jailbreak. He demos the the Android Market, Android Native Email, and Google Apps on his device. However, due to some limitations with the PB Android Player, he was limited to what he could install from the Android Market. Still, this is exiting to see the PlayBook becoming a customizable workhorse. We are exited to see what next the DingleBerry team brings to the PlayBook tablet. He also mentions that they are working on releasing a Jailbreak version that will be more user friendly to install for us laymen out there. We'll keep you updated as more comes in.
Here are a few words from neuralic on installation help:
Have you been able to root your PlayBook and install some of these cool features? Be sure to let us know!
I made a small mistake: the putty tool used to convert keys is called puttygen and is not included with dingleberry. You can download it along with putty itself at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/
. Use this to convert the file named "rsa" in your dingleberry folder to a .ppk file which putty and winscp and similar tools can use. You can then log in to your root with these tools using "root" as the username and the .ppk file that you made as authentication.
The instructions on how to enable google apps on the BlackBerry PlayBook can be found at #2974406 - Pastie
. I'll make a video covering these instructions at some point.
) helped me out a fair bit in getting this to work.
