BlackBerry now available for developers

By Bla1ze on 14 Aug 2013 02:19 pm EDT

Along with the Gold BlackBerry 10.2 SDK downloads, BlackBerry has also updated the BlackBerry Dev Alpha OS autoloaders. When updated, Dev Alpha devices will be running OS The links have actually been live for the past few days but now, they're fully official. Keep in mind, these downloads are NOT full builds and are specifically meant for developers. In other words, you're not going to want to use these as 'daily drivers' on your device.

Update your BlackBerry Dev Alpha Software



First and can't wait till official release as my has been totally awesome.

The heck that has to do with the sdk release ? You're lost Bros ?

Confirmed, no Miracast for Z10s. Q10 and Q5 only for now.
WifiDirect will be supported on all of them.

This is from the NDK virtual conference.


Well that's a bummer...

I hope that is just for now.

Maybe, there was mention in the forums of a possible firmware update in the wifi chipset. No idea if they'll bother or it's just a pipedream. My TV is too old, so it doesn't really impact me, but who knows maybe one day.


Usually companies like to not chance things like this even if they are capable of it due to the number of bricks updates like that cause. Kinda sucks but I'll live, hope you do too :P

Will developers be able to create sequencers for BlackBerry 10 devices and will they be able to implement audio over USB after this update will come live ? I am asking cause I have heard that there were some problems with it, and I would be very happy if this would be possible.

Why would devs even bother with a company that is ready to throw in the towel...


Trini-34 you lost? 3 bill in the bank and positive FCF all day. Go somewhere where your uneducated thoughts are appreciated (try BGR).

Posted from my Q10 on the West Coast


This is for developers. I am in no way a professional regarding apps and what does it need to make one so please be kind.
Would that be possible with the new sdk to release a headless app that will let users choose which numbers to block?
Like many folks out there I would like to have the possibility to block specific numbers when I desire to do so.

Another mistake by Blackberry is not giving full non-crippled gold images, just like what apple did for iOS7. Why upset your super users which are likely developers? You expect them to carry 2 BlackBerry devices around town? Dumb.

even can not retrieve the full backup


My battery is dying in 3 hours. Is that normal for 10.2

Posted via CB10


Try a security wipe. I know it's a pain, but I had terrible battery life with 10.2 until I did a wipe AFTER installing and then adding my apps back one by one (No restore from backup). I take a huge difference.

Wht about lost applications after the update

Posted via CB10


Losing apps too. Is that coz of it is a developer os?

Posted via CB10


Yea. This is only a bare bone OS for developers to make sure their existing apps run fine on upcoming OS and test new API. Lots of core apps are missing. It's not meant for users at all.
