Android Native Support

Hi,

 

I think this has already been posted, but is there any way of porting an Android App (that uses Native Code) to BlackBerry Playbook?

 

Has support been added yet or is there any workaround to this?

Hi TheVaan,

 

I have already tried the online repackaging tool. THe following is the result:

 

 

 

I have now removed the android.vending permission, but thats only the first incompatibility. But is there any support/workaround for porting apps using android native (ndk/jni) ? (i.e. the Level 5 incompatibilites above)

Re: Android Native Support

This topic was discussed before - at this moment it's not possible to run apps that use native code.

Re: Android Native Support

Any progress on this?

 

We're looking to use TouchDB, which requires JNI support.

 

If that isn't forthcoming, we are considering porting the JNI to be straight Java, but would prefer not to do that if we don't have to. It would end up slower, and also take us cycles we could be spending on the app itself.

 

(And anyone else interested in using TouchDB with their Android apps on BB10, contact me)

Re: Android Native Support

With the recent announcement today at BB Jam Live about the use of Android runtime 4.2.2 in the next release, will that then allow for use of Native Code?
