    should this be able to work on Android on VirtualBox? i tried. it installs. but then just open closes.

    • http://128.199.224.11/ Raj Amal

      No it will not work, since android on VirtualBox is x86 architechture. BBM will work only on ARM architecture.

      Check 2 things:
      That you are using 512MB of RAM (the emulator doesn’t work properly with more)
      Try turning ‘Host GPU’ off
