    Here's a handy description of how to convert you own Android into a pseudo-Blackberry PRIV by converting the wallpaper, launcher, software keyboard and BB Services. Enjoy!

    1. First things first - BlackBerry is famed for its keyboards, physical or virtual, and, since you can't replicate the tactile physical one on the Priv, the next best thing is to download and install the on-screen Blackberry Priv keyboard APK file. It doesn't require root or the BB Launcher, so fire at will, sideload and see if you like it;

    2. Next up - download and install the BlackBerry Services APK file. These are required if you want anything else, like the launcher or calendar, to work afterwards;

    3. Download and install the BB Launcher - it's the same one we examined in the review, and found to be a simple and clean Android take, with some unique BlackBerry twists and turns, like Pop-up widgets;

    4. What will be a stock launcher without the stock wallpaper we've embedded above. Just grab it and install as your default wall - it spans a couple of homescreens to boot, and is best for, surprise, surprise - phones with QHD resolution;

    5. Download and install the BlackBerry Calendar - another one of the must-have BB productivity apps, the calendar lets you take a glimpse at upcoming appointments by swiping down on any of the BB Hub lists.

    It's a nice keyboard but I felt like it lacks not having a swipe function.
