It’s no news that it is not all versions of android that supports the use of bbm. It is only higher versions of Android (Ice cream sandwich and above) that have official versions of bbm. But as a matter of fact, people using lower android versions shouldn’t be left out of the fun. So, here’s how you can download and use bbm on your Android phone running Gingerbread OS. Before you proceed,
below are the requirements;
- Android device running Gingerbread OS (2.3)
- Enough data to download application
- Ensure your Android phone is rooted
If you have confirmed the version of your android phone to be as above then, let’s proceed. Download the bbm.apk file HERE. launch it after successful download and complete the registration to start pinging.
In summary, ensure you have all the requirements stated above then download the bbm.apk file, launch it and voila you are good to go but make sure your phone is rooted, if you need help with that check out: How To Root Your Android Device By Yourself without PC
