Is this the version 3 SDK that is on the Dev Alpha B devices being shown off at BB Jam? If so... I'm gonna hook up my PlayBook with that :)

No love for the Playbook? We need OS 2.1, Bridge 2.1 and BBM support.

BB_Bmore

+1 it looks like PlayBook owners are being left behind. Not happy

Rootbrian

RIM never made an official release date available or even mentioned when, so have patience and wait.

This is the OS update, a SDK is to develop apps for the OS. Both are new today.

The link for the App Loader in the update instructions is missing.

So you can't update yet. Don't try updating via Desktop Manager. It didn't work.

Adam, The update is the OS, the SDK update is for developing apps for the OS.

adamschuetze

Sorry, what I meant was, is this the OS version that was being demonstrated at BB Jam? Because if I can get my hands on the BAR file, I can put it on my PlayBook with DingleBerry.

Bluenoser63

Yes, it is the same OS. And this isn't a bar file, it is a full OS.

adamschuetze

Apparently you can put BB10 on the PlayBook:

You just need the OS in a particular format, and DingleBerry can put it onto your PlayBook.

Desktop Software shows it for me and it goes through the update process, but it hasn't actually installed the new software when it is done (it allows me to search for an update and do it all over again).

Saiga

Same here. Doing the forced repair thing doesn't work either

UberschallSamsara

Your link text is truncated. Please provide full links. The dev alpha page update instructions are not working for me after multiple tries.

HaTaX

Ya need to fix that link! The current one points to a page where you can't download the .34 app loader needed to do the update. The correct landing URL is:

I had already found the update instructions at the link Hatax posted but they failed multiple times as well. The updater claimed to be downloading 56 modules and updating my device but it didn't actually update. My dev alpha is still on 10.0.6.671, after multiple tries running WipeReload.bat.

W7 : uninstall desktop manager and device manager seems to allow me getting in the update process with the tool provided here https://developer.blackberry.com/blackberry10devalphas/update

mrmartis

did you get the new OS to work, if so I shall try this option

mrmartis

Same with me, it hasn't updated. I tried everything, debricked method and all. Have been trying since 1'oclock can someone please tell me how to do it.

I tried doing without apploader, it didn't work.
I tried installing app loader first and using desktop manager debricked method, it didn't work.
Now, I tried installing app loader and then using the wipe .bat file, its downloading like before but only 2 modules and for the last hour i have been stuck at 0 out of 2 modules but the progress bar is moving up.

WHATS GOING ON?

UberschallSamsara

Stuck at 0 of 2 for a long time apparently is the way it works. My update took maybe 30 minutes, but it worked eventually.

UberschallSamsara

Ok I just got it to work. The instructions at the link:

https://developer.blackberry.com/blackberry10devalphas/update

omit a step. When you download and extract the zip archive you have to run
the installer that's in the archive before you run the batch file. If you run the batch
file (as the instructions tell you to do) without first running the installer the batch
file will run, claim to update your device, but fail to do so.

The instructions are broken.

andrewmcwhirter

How does BBM work on these developer devices without a carrier? Or are these devices tied to a carrier/PIN?

mrmartis

SOLUTION: Ok I figured it out for anyone having problems:
You have to first install the app loader, then click on the batch file. It may take up to 2 hours and seem as if it froze but as long as the progress bar is active as in you see the green thing moving across it back and forth it is going.
Wait two hours and it will work enjoy.

Hey everyone, if you have got the update working you are probably having fun and playing around with it like me. Although we have BBM now and no contacts, i want to play around with bbm and groups if you need a buddy add me

and lets test out bbm.

accuberryedwin

I love the the phone and the look of BB10 however, I wish they added the 2 convenience keys. I'd also like to see HDMI out. I do feel like something is missing in the phone just like with my PlayBook. Idk if it's the look of the letters or the fact I STILL can't use my front facing cam but I do feel incomplete still. I think that if RIM doesn't bring the big name Native Apps to to its App World it's doomed! As much as I hate to admit it, it REALLY needs Skype, Yahoo Messenger, OoVoO, Live Messenger, NetFlix, Skydrive, and all the major book stores, HBO GO, HULU, TiVO, ROKU, Boxee, etc. In all, the list goes on and on but these are the starter Apps RIM desperately needs.

Rootbrian

The thing is, rim doesn't make those apps you mentioned, they can't make them, the DEVELOPERS have to make them. RIM can't get them on bb10, the developers have to submit them into appworld. Please don't think rim has to make those apps, because that is entirely incorrect.

This is the OS update, a SDK is to develop apps for the OS. Both are new today.
