Hi!

I'm a trusted developer/reverse engineer and normally only post in the Crackberry forums. My top 3 threads over there about running Google Play on a Blackberry device have reached over 5 million hits.

This thread here is all about installing Blackberry apps on any device running Android 5.0 or better.

Check out this great video review by Andres Segovia from NewsReel to see how my solution performs (thanks buddy!):

Patched app that are available:
* Blackberry Calendar
* Blackberry Contacts
* Blackberry Hub
* BlackBerry Hub+ Services
* Blackberry Keyboard
* Blackberry Launcher
* Blackberry Notes
* BlackBerry Notable
* Blackberry Passwordkeeper
* BlackBerry Privacy Shade
* Blackberry Universalsearch
* Blackberry Tasks

HOW TO INSTALL

1. Uninstall all Blackberry apps that you may have installed with any other installation method and reboot your device
2. Go to the Github page (link below)
3. Read the "Learn more" section on Github
4. Download and install BlackBerry Manager
5. Install the apps of your choice directly from Blackberry Manager

************************************************** *****************************

Blackberry Manager (downloader/updater)
http://cobalt232.github.io/blackberrymanager/

Features of Blackberry Manager:
* Downloads BlackBerry apps from Play Store and patches them on the fly
* Automatically notifies when updates are available
* Configure permissions (long press an item)

************************************************** *****************************

IMPORTANT NOTES, PLEASE READ

Blackberry Services MUST be installed if you want to use Blackberry Hub and other apps (except for Keyboard).

It is very important that you grant all permissions to the apps so that they can work correctly. Verify permissions after installing an app by tapping the app icon in the listview.

Blackberry Hub will add its own Microsoft Exchange integration. If you want to use the Hub together with Exchange, you should remove the default device exchange account. If you don't do that, you will have double calendar entries in your calendar.

Enjoy!

Legal notice:
All Blackberry apps remain the property of Blackberry Limited. By using these apps, you agree to the Blackberry terms and conditions. The apps are patched to work on stock Android and are provided 'as is', without warranty of any kind. Please consider buying a Blackberry Android device, if you enjoy using these apps!

The Priv is running 5.1.1, so 6.0 may not be fully supported. You can verify if all permissions are set, maybe that will help.

Battery consumption may be high in the first 30 min because of sync tasks. Wait until it settles.

Also, disable all device sync account if possible and just use hub to sync your accounts.
