Install BAR files inside Android VM.

Hello everybody!

 

Can someone explain me the following problem:

 

I have an Android App that can install other Android Apps (think like that as a personal App Store for Android). Now I want to convert it to BlackBerry. Which I already have done.

 

Now what I want to know is how can my application (BAR file running inside Android VM) install other BAR files? Is there any option (API?) that can escape from Android VM to QNX so I can be able to install a BAR?

 

Thanks!

This is not supported.  Third party applications running on BBX/BlackBerry Tablet OS are not able to install other third party applications.

Even if the application (BAR) is signed by the owner of that application?

No, signing does not make a difference here.
