Want BBM and other Bridge functions on your Playbook 2.0 OS?
Everyone who has the 2.0 OS on your Playbook has probably noticed that BB Bridge connects, but the Bridge apps do no function. Well, it appears they are broken intentionally.
Do this… 1) Connect your Playbook to you BlackBerry via BB bridge through the normal pairing procedure. 2) Now, Fire up your bridge browser and head over to http:127.0.0.1:187/bbm/
What happens? you get BBM on your Playbook
Now try the same address but replace “/bbm/’ with ‘/messages/’
MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE THE FINAL FORWARD SLASH
-You cannot access the file browser currently to attach files to emails or BBM
-Also, external links will not open the browser when tapped
(we are working on both of these issues)
Alternatively if you simply visit http://127.0.0.1:187/ you will get a menu allowing you to choose your destination (see image up top)
What happens? Messages on your Playbook via bridge! Magic!
