If you're running an older OS on your Blackerry Z10, you'll be happy to know that an updated version has leaked today. The update will bring you to 10.0.10.261 but unfortunately will require a Windows PC to install. No reports back on this version just yet, but you can assume it fixes some issues but might have some new ones as well. If you're willing to give it a go, you can head into the forums to grab the installer and for full instructions. If it goes downhill, remember you can always wipe and restore your device

As always - use caution when installing a leaked OS like this and remember if you break your phone it's not our fault :)

Guinea pigs, anyone?

It's got a few bugs here and there but otherwise no issues for me. Bla1ze on the other hand couldn't even get it to load up .. so ..

How on Earth are we seeing a leaked OS? Wasn't the QNX platform to be done with this?

o.ô

It seems that I am running an even newer version anyways. I bought my z10 locked and unlocked it to work with wind mobile and a few days ago wind pushed a 10.0.10.32 update and that's what I have now.

RIM is the best and I am a crackberry addict.

Kuttysark

It's the same version. I also have it (See my twitter @kuttysark , I got the update OTA). Type myver_ in a bbm convo where the underscore is a space.

How is that newer? Yours is 10.0.10.32 and the one here is 10.0.10.261.

reread that... at the end of the day .32 > .261

Iamanonymous62

I can just see him arguing with the cops over an impaired charge:)

you sir name

Lol k, now THAT would actually be correct.

jjetson

Not in this case it isn't 261 > 32. Software versioning isn't the same as rational numbers. Think of version 1.0.0.99 and 1.0.0.100. which do you think is newer?

ddlax22

Well because .32 is higher than .261
More numbers don't make it higher in this case lol.

mrfreeze574

Duh! My bad. I knew that. Sorry guys.

prez87

Wow already! This is why I love bb!

I am running 10.0.9 but I would rather wait for the official release before I mess around with this. I have only had it for 3 days now :P

borceg

Stop your horses please - this is ONLY for OMAP based Z10 (and Dev Alpha also)

I thought BB10, just like the PB, would not have "leaked" software.

gregorylkelly

I think most leaks come from carriers, which is why the PB OSes don't leak. Also, I think I do remember saeeing leaked PB 3g OSes leak, although I could be wrong about that....

johnsoj2us

dangit!! hurry up and get here march!!!!! sweet, leaked versions of bb10.

borceg

Correct one for Qualcomm based Z10 (LTE derivatives that are available in canada, US/UK, Germany/France) is Autoload.10.0.10.261.0x8400240a.0x8500240a.0x87002 40a.exe

This is me hoping that this update means soon they will have a US release date!!!

chrysaurora

Does this update add any new features? For eg:

- BB 7 users wanted fine-grained sound-profiles to be available on BB 10. Does it add that?

- There was also feature request for modifying some default behaviors of the 'hub' ?

mnc76

+1 I'm holding off on the z10 until it can at least do all the stuff my bb7.1 9810 can do. But when the Aristo comes out, I'm gonna get that no matter what the state of the software :)

Rootbrian

Code name for a blackberry that might not even see the light of day. Internal leaks can change very quickly once released. ;)

Call it fantasy until it's solid.

alpinechem

I am running 10.0.9.348

Alooi Divona

some one must check if this leaked software give the support for running side loaded android apps jelly bean 4.1 !

ifraser

Yeah, you posted it and it left my z10 useless until i have restored an OS with the correct radio.

Also link doesnt backup your contact links so beware if changing OS

I had to wipe and restore from the BB Website.

Major PITA

But I will say thank you for sharing, we dont learn without experimenting.

knowledge_6

to clear something up for some people.. there is a different between OS version and Software Release...

the OS version for this is the one showing 10.0.10.261
the Software Release is probably a lower number like 10.0.10.34

on the devices on Rogers
Software Release is 10.0.9.348
OS Version is 10.0.9.2372

so people saying they have 10.0.9.348 is the same as people that are saying they have 10.0.9.2372..

Shane over at OSBB posted this on Feb 4th. This isn't anything new. Thanks Shane for sharing weeks ago.

I have had this version since the launch event and I can def assure you it is not worth upgrading. I was also told a day ago, that a "new" version will be dropping very, very soon. This new version is supposed have a bunch of bug fixes and OS improvements. I am currently experiencing a text message sending delay and they are hoping this new version addresses the issue.

Let me know if you have any other questions I can answer.

PS: I am not sure it is specifically mentioned anywhere, but BB10 does not support Exchange Memo and Task sync if you are on Exchange 2007 or below. To me this is a HUGE deal, that no one seems to have brought up. I have documentation from Blackberry that this is in fact true and not just a config issue.

OTA I checked for an update on my Z10 and it says I'm up to date. I'm currently using 10.0.9.348.

Now, I plugged my Z10 into my Mac using Blackberry Link and voila - there's an update! Odd... OTA should have picked it up. The update however is 10.0.9.2372 which is the OS Version part of the 10.0.9.348 Software Release.

Hmmmm... odd....

I'm using an STL100-2 evaluation unit on the Telstra network in Australia. The web update worked for me once I removed the SIM card. It's been updated to 10.0.10.261.

Thanks for the tip.
