Step 2: Root/Jailbreak BlackBerry PlayBook using DingleBerry

Step 3: Download Google Apps zip package from the popular CyanogenMod Wiki.

Step 4: Package android app as a .bar file, install and launch it to set things up. Consider installing a launcher app since it will be required later on to actually launch Market. Get one from here.

Step 5: Using WinSCP for Windows, log into your BlackBerry PlayBook as root. Copy the system folder from Google Apps in Step 3 to the root of your PlayBook’s storage and merge it with the PlayBook’s own system folder.

Step 6: Using a terminal with root access, enter the following commands:

mv /system/app/SetupWizard.apk /system/app/SetupWizard.apk.bak

Step 7: You must now kill the Android Player with:

cd /apps/sys.android.XXXX.ns/native/scripts

and then run ./android-player-cmd.sh kill-android-core.sh

The XXXX above is different for each device.

Step 8: Using a launcher from Step 4, launch Android Market and enter account details.

If you followed the steps correctly, Android Market will now be installed and working on your BlackBerry PlayBook.
