BlackBerry Priv wallpapers, keyboard and apps ripped for download
BlackBerry is pretty well known for its keyboard technology and you can download the Priv’s keyboard as a standalone APK. All of the other apps will require BlackBerry Services installed before they will work, once you have that you can try out the BlackBerry Launcher and Calendar software too.
Finally, if you want the BlackBerry Hub and other bits of untouched software you will also need root access on your smartphone, as it has to be installed on your system partition. You can find a list of all the files at this link.
Additionally, the Priv’s stock wallpapers have also appeared online. You can grab the .rar file with them all on from this link and I’ve uploaded them again below for simpler downloading onto your mobile.
Of course, there are still a good number of reasons to go out and buy the actual BlackBerry Priv. The Priv comes with some pretty decent hardware, there’s a curved 5.4-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 808 SoC, 3GB of RAM and an 18 megapixel rear camera. Not to mention proper software support and the additional encryption/security features. Still, it’s nice to try things out.
