Description

This file you are downloading is a Windows Installation file that will Install the Software on your PC. This will allow you to install BAR files, which are proprietary Playbook files!

Step 1) Download this file and install it on your PC
Step 2) Power up your Playbook and Go to Settings
Step 3) Next Go to the option called Security
Step 4) Select the Option Development Mode
Step 5) Turn Development Mode On and select an easy to remember Pasword
Step 6) You will notice a Development IP Address this will show up on your main homescreen with an icon that shows a guy with a shirt
Step 7) Using your Blackberry Web Browser download any Playbook App you want to your Playbook.
Step 8.) By Default when you download apps using your web browser they are stored in a directory called /downloads/
Step 9) Plug your Playbook Into your PC and launch the Windows Application you downloaded and installed.
Step 10) On the left hand side it will say Playbook IP address, hit the scan button and it will use the IP address that you used when you setup the Developer security option. If you forget what it was or it won’t scan, click on the guy with the green shirt on your homescreen on the top right hand corner and it will tell you what it is.
Step 11) Underneath the IP Address is a password, use the password I told you to use when you setup your developer account under Security.
Step 12) Click ADD and Navigate using the Explorer to the Download Directory on your Playbook and Select the Apps you want to install.
Step 13) Your apps will install to your Playbook and you now have full access to mainstream applications not currently available in the Blackberry APP World.

If you need any help with this program or any questions please comment below and we can help you.

*** If your computer does not have Java, which most do you might need to install it on your PC to get this program to work. You will see a error message saying something about a JAR File missing, Google for JAVA 32 BIT

      Awesome app, works just like google “alerts” so you can stay ahead of the deals and capitalize before anyone else. If your selling alot of stuff on craigslist, their is one tool that should be mandatory. Check out the article on my company blog http://www.empowernetwork.com/otherpeoplesstuff/blog/how-to-sell-a-car-on-craigslist/ …We use it as a dealership, but it can work for selling anything on craigslist. Check it out!

      Hi there, was able to follow and instructions and was able to install applications correctly in my Z10, though the problem is when I am signing into Instagram, an error popped out saying “your version of Instagram is out of date. Please upgrade your app in the Play Store to log in to Instagram.” I am lost and clueless on how will I be able to upgrade Instagram’s version. Would appreciate if someone will help me out with this. Thank you. MJ

      Date posted October 28, 2012
      I am getting frustrated by all these “hyped” apps around here. Not many of them actually work – even after all these work arounds. I should sell my playbook. It’s getting to become piece of crap.

    • ProDiggy

      @emdyey2002 click forget password then recover password with facebook and then you should be able to sign in on instagram

      @ProDiggy Thanks. It worked. You guys are awesome.

      Hello all: Posting with short comments re installing this and using after having problems previously. Downloaded Java runtime, no problem. Downloaded DDPB programme, no problem. Followed all the steps given on this site on another page and had no problems till I ran DDPB programme. The grey text box came up alright; took my IP address and password ok. Then I clicked on ‘add’ and it found the required app on my playbook. Then the snag. the ‘install button’ stayed grey. It was not until I hit ‘connect’ button to link PC with computer. Once I got the connected message the ‘install’ button activated and the programmes transferred quickly. Have installed 7 programmes now without problem except for ‘Flixster’ which will not show my movie collection even  though it is linked to my ultraviolet log in on other devices. Is this a different version or not ‘a full’ version?

    • tetrisfan

      I keep getting an error message that the app keeps closing unexpectedly. I noticed though, up in the left hand corner of my screen where the notifications pop-up, that it does display the temps. Is any one else noticing this? I hope that there will be an update.

    • Upgrade

      Let me explain something to you guy’s, if you are running the OS 2.1 system on the Playbook you can forget sideloading these apps as RIM had left a nice little gift of blocking any sideloading of Android apps due to piracy. Even Dingleberry has given up!

    • Arthur Peterson

      I downloaded DDPB & installed. I input the IP & password, it said it was connected. Any app I tried to download gave me this Error Message:

      Error: Unable to access jarfile
      c:users……localtempbarbardeploy.jar

      As a result, I can’t get any app into the DDpb & therefore I can’t upload them to my Blackberry.
      Please help !

    • Arthur Peterson

      I wrote the other day but I don’t see my message. I am getting an error message from the DDpb program.:

      Error: Unable to Access jarfile

      If you need more specific let me know. Because of this error code I have not been able to download / upload anything.

      I downloaded the DDPB app on my pc, then the Youtube for blackberry playbook app as well. I followed all the steps and it installed successfully, but nothing actually appears on my playbook!
      I tried many times, I even downloaded the Youtube app directly on my playbook and tired to install it using the DDPB on the computer, and no problems occurred while following through the steps, but I still didn’t get any results!
      Can somebody help me please??
