I have upgraded to the PlayBook OS 2.0 beta, read lots of articles about how to sideload Android apps, but none of the methods works for me :/
I've prepared the .bar files, activated Developer Mode on Playbook, turned WiFi on and tried installing via DDPB, BBH, PB installer and Comman line tools, but no success. DDPB says DONE, but the app does not appear on my Playbook. Tried rebooting and still nothing.
Any idea what could I be doing wrong? Thanx in advance for your advice.
P.S.: I tried security wipe, but ended with just browser and setup installed, so had to downgrade, register for the beta update again and finally update.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Are you loading a signed application or an unsigned application? If it is unsigned, have you uploaded a debug token?
Please provide the output you see from the command line tools when installing.

thanx for your quick reply, I did not sign the apps, because I first wanted to try to install some already prepared and converted BAR app downloaded from the internet (other users were able to install it without such problems).
I did not upload a debug token.
Here's a screenshot from windows command line after trying to install the BAR app via PB Installer tool.
I've also tried DDPB where just a popup "Done" appears, but nothing is installed to my Playbook and I have tried the official commandline tools, will upload a screen asap.

Here it is:
Another developer here adviced me that he had the same problem and a Security Wipe solved it, but I did a security wipe on 2.0 yesterday and my Playbook loaded the 2.0 with most of the apps missing (in fact only Browser and setup left), so I had to do a downgrade, register for the update again and do the update itself, but still I am not able to install android apps. He also suggested that I re-register for the update now and do the wipe in about an hour, so I am in the 24h window when the PB loads system after the wipe, what do you think about this solution?

I aslo have same problem. May I know is it because from update file size? My friend Playbook OS 2.0 update is 357mb, and mine is 316mb only. Is it the coreect size that I got?
Can anyone figured this out. This is my Playbook pin: 50118DE0
Thanks in advance!

I'm looking into this one. Security wipe seems to resolve it, but I'm looking for a better way.
rais88, were you both installing the same language?
