Opera Mini 10 for Android crashes under BlackBerrry OS 10.3

  • I have been using both old and new Opera Mini versions on my BlackBerry Z10, whose OS includes an Android runtime module that lets it run most generic Android apps. This week Verizon USA forced an OS version update (from 10.2 to 10.3) which breaks Opera Mini 10. Upon installation from any source (Amazon AppStore, direct download from Opera) it runs - ONCE - and exits gracefully when done. Any attempts to run it again result in an immediate crash that dumps you to the home screen with no errors. If you uninstall, reinstall, it runs - ONCE - and the cycle repeats.

  • Further information.

    I am looking at the BB10 file system using Ghost Commander.

    After uninstall of Opera Mini 10, there is still a left-over folder (/mnt/sdcard/Android/data/ It looks to be empty, has NO PERMISSIONS SET (r-w-x are empty) and cannot be opened or deleted (PERMISSION DENIED).

    Is this the reason for the crash after first run? A folder permissions issue?
