This is a placeholder page for Blackberry Playbook h4x.  Here's what we know so far:

  • skroo has a 16GB Blackberry Playbook. The warranty has been both violated and voided.
  • The device is largely-useless because it runs Blackberry Playbook OS. Shame, because the hardware (while nothing to necessarily write home about) is relatively decent.
  • Yes, it can run Android apps under the Playbook OS. That's not the point. The idea is to eventually get it to run Android natively.
  • There's something really tiny and really interesting-looking on the mainboard near one of the battery connectors.

Right now it's in pieces (but still working) and a couple of interesting things have been documented. Awaiting arrival of suitable components for additional investigation.


2mm is an interesting width.

Also, I got bored with it, put it back together, and took it home.  Might screw around with it at some point, but $99 Android tablets let me be lazy.
