New BlackBerry Tools for Android Development 2.0 Beta

[ Edited ]

Today we are pleased to announce the beta release of the BlackBerry Tools for Android Development 2.0!


The BlackBerry tools for Android Development 2.0 beta release makes it easier than ever to package Android apps to run on BlackBerry 10devices. This release provides the following updates:

  • The BlackBerry Plug-in for Android Development Tools not longer requires that you install the Android SDK.
  • The Command-line tool includes a graphical user interface to guide you through the repacking process. The GUI version of the tool supports all of the commands in the previous release of the tools.
  • The BlackBerry Android Device Bridge (ADB) Proxy Manager plug-in provides a centralized view for all the connected BlackBerry devices and simulators.

Head on over to our Android Tooling page to grab the latest command-line tools download or get started with the Eclipse Plugin.The Beta update for Eclipse can be found at: http://developer.blackberry.com/android/downloads/eclipseplugin/beta


Feel free to experiment with the tools and let us know what else you would like to see supported within the BlackBerry Runtime for Android apps next as an Android developer!
