When attempting to open an Android application on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone running BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.0.x, the application attempts to open and then closes on its own. This same application functioned properly prior to upgrading to BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.0.x.
There was an issue upgrading the BlackBerry Runtime for Android that now prevents applications from being run.
Update the BlackBerry 10 smartphone to BlackBerry 10 OS version or later.
