BlackBerry 10.2 SDK goes gold, available to download now

BlackBerry 10.2 SDK
By Simon Sage on 14 Aug 2013 01:58 pm EDT

As expected, the BlackBerry 10.2 Gold SDK was launched today, and is currently available for developers to download. There are a lot of new capabilities included here, such as headless apps, Android 4.2 runtime support, BlackBerry ID access, and lots more. There are a few new things for Cascades too. 

Starting at 2 PM EST, BlackBerry's holding a virtual event where devs can get their hands dirty with some code, and follow along with experts from BlackBerry. Devs, what do you think so far? Have any of you been playing around with the beta at all?

Not totally awesome. Much of the Android run-time is and apparently will remain crippled.


Will the API's for keyboard shortcuts for thr Q10 be included in this release?

Posted via CB10


message to any of the devs frequenting crackberry. Which is most I think.

Lets run some beta programs for anybody running leaked OS 10.2 on there devices. I want headless apps asap! Assuming our current 10.2 leak goes along with this 10.2 sdk, I have no idea how this all works lol


Hear! Hear! to headless apps...they can't come soon enough!!! :)



damn! wasn't first. what does this sdk mean? are we expecting a lot more android apps be converted into native bb10 apps?


SDK: Software Development Kit, basically more tools to help apps be produced. I can't wait for a headless Wallpaper Changer HD :D


SDK is a abbreviation for "some dumb skank". General term for a vapid, almost completely interchangeable, b!*(h.

ex. That sdk is printing off 400 front phone books for the pledges in her sorority.


Oh. Nice. And she's apparently available for download already! Lol

Posted via CB 10 on my naked Z10 ;)


Really, that's what you are going t say on here?


Well done. See also Miss UT and 2007 Miss South Carolina Teen USA.


Skank starts with an 's'

SDK is a tool that helps developers to make app using the available options on this version, like Android 4.2.2.

And so the next level starts today...Lets Keep Moving.


Headless apps! Yes!!!

Posted via CB10


Wicked. Let the good times roll :D

Tomas Carrillo

Thanks I'll prepare my apps for this version :3

It means they can pull their fingers out and bring back the ability to create groups!!!!


What are headless apps?

Posted via CB10

Riaan Smit

I also want to know... LOL

Dave Bourque

apps that can run in the background without having them in the active frames


Hope we get the rest once the official one drops. i.e. HDR Camera and WiFi direct as the didn't have them.

Zed 10 - In your face VZW


1.2.1047 has hdr camera, you tap the three dots then shooting mode. It's right there

OK stupidity talking here... will it be worthy of a daily driver, aka full os? I know I'm reaching........

Posted via CB10


Probably not. Correct me if I'm wrong, but since it is a developer build it is most likely missing some files. But you can always install the leaked it's pretty Damn good!

White Z10 Verizon


one more question. what's a headless app?


It's an app that can run in the background without being in an active frame.

Posted via CB10


a headless app is aka an uncircumcised wiener.

ex. George was thinking about getting circumcised as he had heard headless apps were unsanitary.


Somebody ban this guy up here. seriously man, take that junk someplace else.


I'm sending you $1. Please purchase a sense of humor.


sorry i hurt your feelings. do you want some ice cream?


Yes, someone ban that user.

One step closer.

Hoping Vijik will chime in with his take on the new SDK as it may apply to ShortCutMe 10.

There is a good number of us looking forward to BlackBerry providing the necessary developers' tools to enable Vijik to tweak the latest version of our beloved application to its former powerful and flexible glory.

Does anybody know whether they have they fixed email address caching issues yet or with this release?

My first go around with the Z10 left a lot to be desired when I discovered email caching was seemingly non-existent, and the only time I could get auto-fill to work on an email address was if the person was in my contacts (and there are a lot of people I email back and forth with whom I do not wish to have in my contact lists). I was quite shocked to discover at the time that in my opinion, iOS handled email 10 times better than BB10......


I'm interested to see what the UI looks like for closing a headless running app. I'm enjoying 48 hours of battery on my Z10 and I want it to stay that way.


you achieve 2 full days of heavy use?


A lot of essential apps should have had the background running capability from the beginning of BB10, so please hurry up with the official release or at least its closest leaks.

There really doesn't seem to be that much added in 10.2. Apart from headless apps and perhaps the new Android runtime, I haven't seen any "wow" new feature...(?)
