Sideloading Blackberry 10 Android Apps (and Snap)

The chrome tool is clunky, I prefer the GUI deploy tool from the android tool chain.

-development mode enabled (settings > security and privacy > development mode)
-java runtime installed
-running OS 10.2.1+
-connected to local wifi
-proper bar(s) downloaded (snap available at

1. Download and extract the command-line tools (2.0.1 beta at the time of writing).
2. Find your Blackberry IP. Settings > About > Category Network > Wifi IPv4.
3. On linux, “./blackberry-deploy” to start the tool. On Windows, open blackberry-deploy.bat.
4. Select the bar, fill in the IP address from (2) and device password (if enabled), and deploy. That’s it!
