I'm facing some problems in porting Android apps with google maps and having .so libraries. Without removing the complete functionalities of google maps and native libraries, is there any alternate way to succesfully build and port the android applicaiton?
Thanks & Regards,

The first question is that should you even start off with porting from your Android source code in the first place. Most app developers can't live on Android revenue alone --- which means that they have an iOS version of the app. It may be simpler to port your native iOS app to native BB10 app.

Which is techinically IMPOSSIBLE to do when you have native codes in your existing Android app and try to make it run on BB10. There is no technical way to run Linux binaries in QNX.
So the OP can wait until our sun to go supernova or the OP has to find an alternative method (which is to see if it is simpler for him to port his existing native iOS source code to native BB10). Either that or the OP has to completely rewrite his existing Android app by removing all the extra features that were written in native codes to rewriting them in Dalvik codes.

@Fraggle222 Thanks for the reply. The solution you have provided for Google maps implementation is a good enough . Anyways i will try it once.
And do you have any idea to find an alternate solution to use .so files?
@janetsa I don't care about other platforms as i'm basically an Android developer. Hope this will answer your question?
