  • Question ....

    I'm from Brazil and I'd like to be a beta tester ...

    But I want, for example install Netflix ... It will be possible, as a beta tester ?

  • This should be posted on some other thread but since you have asked it, the beta ROM could be unstable.

    Ideally, Netflix should work if you install it. Any applications from the Playstore should work. You can install external applications, there is no restriction on installation. @Davon.z Could you please confirm this?

  • how to use screen shot on black shark1 🤔 there is any option?

  • Press or hold volume key down and power button together it will take Screen shot on BB2

  • Hey @ctsuzuki ,

    Yes it is possible to install Netflix and watch all your content and use it as your DD. Normally everything should work alright but don't get too frustrated if something doesn't work. The hole purpose of beta testing is to find bugs. Obviously the version won't be as stable as the final release. There is no guarantee that for example also Netflix will work all the time flawlessly.
