Workaround for AS3 Developers using FDT to create BlackBerry 10 Apps

If you recently tried to install the BlackBerry 10 SDK for Adobe AIR to work with PowerFlasher FDT and got stuck during the installation process:

Don’t panic, there is a workaround:

- Install SDK 3.1 without FDT integration
- Open FDT and go to Help -> Install New Software
- On the dialog, click button Add
- The “Add Repository” dialog will be displayed, press “Local” button
- Point to where your BlackBerry Tablet SDK is, e.g. for the Mac: /Applications/Research In Motion/blackberry-tablet-sdk-3.1.0/update_site_for_AirCommon/
- Give any name to the repository and Press OK.
- Follow the installation instructions
- After restarting FDT, you will be able to create Blackberry Project

It’s beautiful to see FDT and our BlackBerry SDK beautifully integrated:

Good luck and happy coding!
