I don't know if anyone have started a thread about this, but I can't find one here.
So let's begin

As we all know that BBM for android limit their App only for Smartphone, but that's not really true.
You just can't install BBM for Android from Google Play if you are using Tablet.

For any of you want to Install BBM app on your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet, you'll gonna need an Android Phone.
  1. Open Google Play on your Android Phone
  2. Search & Install BBM app to your phone.
  3. Open File Explorer (Root Explorer or ES File Explorer is recommended)
  4. Go to /data/app
  5. Look for file "com.bbm-1.apk" (without quotes)
  6. Send it to your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
  7. Install the APK into your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
  8. Follow the instructions.
  9. If you got any error, it's ok. Just wait because you are still in the queue lines.
  10. If you got through then VOILA BBM on a TABLET

Ask me any question about the procedure if you have any & not the BBM error

It's ok, just wait.
Unable to complete setup error means that you can't connect to BBM server with your ID just yet.
It doesn't always mean that you don't have internet connection (BBM connected notif. means you have internet connection).

If you have pre-registered from bbm.com before just wait for an email from bbm.com.
If not.....then you'll have to wait longer.

Just be patient as 10 million of downloads in only 24 hours means the server is under very heavy load.

Yes & No.
Both BBM is usable using the same BBM ID, but only one of them will be active at a time.
When you run BBM on inactive BBM, it will ask you to switch device.
If you do switch, the last active device will become inactive.

Thank you very much for your help

For everyone that can't find "com.bbm-#.apk" (change # into 1 or 2 because it seems like the version number) have to make sure that :
  1. You have installed BBM for android on your Android Phone
  2. Make sure the folder path is "/data/app" (without quotes) & NOT "/sdcard/data/app", "/extSdCard/data/app" or "/sdcard0/data/app"
  3. Use 3rd party file explorer & DO NOT use built in file explorer because built in file explorer limit the accessible area only in "/sdcard", "/extSdCard" or "/sdcard0"
    Root File Explorer and ES File Explorer is recommended
I won't accept any APK request because of:
  • Security reason
  • The app is still under heavy development as different version can cause different experience or problem that I may not able to answer if anyone ask me questions
  • This thread is only a tutorial thread
I hope all of you understand

It's working but strangely enough BBM for android need a very stable Internet connection (& fast too)
"No Internet Connection" BBM error doesn't always mean that you don't have internet connection.
It can be happening because:
  1. Your BBM can't reach its server
  2. Your BBM ID isn't ready yet
  3. Your Internet connection is not stable enough (usually during setup)
  4. Your ISP or Router block certain IP addresses that may interfere with the BBM connection (consult with your ISP and check your Router settings)
  5. The BBM server under extreme load (so retry )
