For developers who want to develop Android Apps / Games on BlackBerry 10..
After Google released the ADT 23, many developers encountered the problem of can't build projects...
This version of ADT also effects on BlackBerry Plug-in for Android Development Tools.
When user try to install the plugin via this link
Missing requirement: BlackBerry Eclipse Plugin for Android Development 184.108.40.206405221110 (net.rim.ajde.feature.feature.group 220.127.116.11405221110) requires 'com.android.ide.eclipse.adt.feature.group 0.0.0' but it could not be found
In version 2.0.4 (or previous 2.0 beta), developers just need to simply start the ADB proxy Manager, setup your device and then run as Android Application to deploy apps into their devices / simulators.

What can we do without install the BlackBerry Plug-in for Android Development Tools??
The answer is easy... Just download the Command-line tools!!
After you download the file, you can see several files inside.
Open the "ADB Proxy Manager" and setup your device, just like what you did in eclipse!
Now you can go back to your development and don't need to worry about no eclipse plugin!!
Thanks for BlackBerry!
Yesterday I saw an article about visual comparsion of iOS 8 beta and Android L from redmondpie
I started to think, why not add BB10 into the comparison?
After several hours hard working, I took screenshots on my BlackBerry 10.2.1.2977 OS and BlackBerry 10.3.0.700 OS...
Actually many good features on BlackBerry 10 also be implemented to iOS / Android.
But until now, I still think BlackBerry Hub is the best notification center :D
And the Instant Preview on BlackBerry 10 provide me the best way to reply messages :)
All the images below are arranged via the order :
iOS 8 beta / Android L / BlackBerry 10.2.1 / BlackBerry 10.3.0
Thanks for redmonpie's images and ... Here we go!
1. Lock Screen
2. Home Screen
If you want to see more comparison, just leave a comment below :)
I write many android apps and want to bring them into BlackBerry World, how can I do it?
Basically I don't like to use the integrated tools in eclipse... so I decide to use commandline tool!
1. Download BlackBerry Tools for Android Development 2.0.4
The blackberry-apkpackager is located at BlackBerry_Tools_for_Android_Development-2.0.4/bin
2. Using blackberry-apkpackager to repackage APK fils to BAR files.
Orginal : The folder with APK files
Repacked : The fold with converted bar files.
imactekiiMac:~ imac$ blackberry-apkpackager Orginal -t Repacked
3. Using batchbar-signer to sign BAR fils..
imactekiiMac:~ imac$ batchbar-signer Repacked author.p12 passwd passwd
Very useful tools, enjoy!!
