How to update old Playbook OS to allow for Android app?

I have a Playbook from ages ago, but how do I update the OS so I can test my Android apps on it?

Re: How to update old Playbook OS to allow for Android app?

First, sign up for the Beta Zone: https://www.blackberry.com/beta/

 

It can take up to an hour to be accepted and get your confirmation email.

 

Second, register your Playbook for beta: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/android/beta/bbtablet20/register/

 

An over-the-air update should be available for your device almost immediately.

 

Note: This is BETA software.  It's buggy.  You've been warned.
