Has anyone been able to configure FBT 5 (free version) with BB Tablet OS SKD 3.0.0?
Any help is appreciated. I am finally trying to get around to some BB10 AIR development, but it looks like you have to keep that separate from Flash Buillder for current PlayBook apps since you cannot do both at the same time.
Solved! Go to Solution.

To install the BlackBerry plugin for FDT, you need to relaunch the BB10 SDK for AIR install and select integrate with FDT (you have the choice between FDT and FlashBuilder).
Pointing to the BB10 SDK from FDT preferences (as you probably did for the Flex and AIR sdk) is enough if you plan to build using ant scripts, but it doesn't installs the FDt plugin.

I didn't find any real showstoppers, but some annoying bugs,
for instance, on windows, I cannot seem to use the project preference to package an asset directory, see http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Adobe-AIR-D
Also, in FDT free, setting the app icons from the preference windows is blocked (one of the free version limitations), no big deal as I prefer to set them manually in the app descriptor, but where it gets annoying is when FDT automatically overwrites your app descriptor <icon> everytime you open the preference window...
Nothing too dramatic in any case, overall I really like to work with FDT... I just received a notification that FDT 5.5.1 is out, hopefully they fixed some of them.
In FDT, for libraries, I just create standard projects but build them with the specific launch configuration "FDT SWC Library"
I have not tried deploying to the simulator, actually I never use the simulator...
Alos I'm doing all the building packaging deploying and signing from FDT with ant scripts, this also allows me to work around the bug I mentioned above with adding a directory to the package.
