Mine are also not working. I even tried to download the dolphin browser. It will install but when I go to open it, it does nothing. None of the android apps are working.

I think that i found the solution. I read on CB forums that someone wipe his device and then re-install it via OTA and wifi. I do the same.

I was try a few android apps and are working. But before you must take a full backup with DM. The full backup now is working very well. Also the restore is safe.

I hope to help you!

iwp1968, Go the gear at the top right of the screen, then to security and then security wipe. It should work.

Re: Android apps not working

How I reload the OS

 

 

First I would like you to do a Back Up of your PlayBook using your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Software.

This can be downloaded for free from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/

After the Back Up is complete I need you to unplug your PlayBook and then push and hold down the Power Button until the unit Force Powers Off.

Now, while Desktop Software is still open on your computer and the PlayBook Powered Off, Connect the PlayBook to your computer.

You should see and error screen from Desktop Software pop up that has the options to Retry, Update, or Cancel.

QUICKLY choose the Update option.

This will erase all the information off of your PlayBook and Re-Write the Software back onto it. Once it's complete your PlayBook will need to go back through the setup wizard, and you can then perform a restore using Desktop Software to return your information. The only thing that won't come back after the restore are the apps that you downloaded from App World but they can be easily Re-Installed using the My World feature in App World.
