Dev Alpha

Happy Monday for Dev Alpha owners! A full version of the BlackBerry 10 OS has leaked in the CrackBerry forums. This is for the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha only but it is the full BB10 OS - including Hub and all native apps. It should only be used by developers and we take no responsibility for anything that happens to your device - so use caution. You'll have to have a WIndows PC to run the loader, but if you're ready to give it a shot, head into the forums thread below.

Hop into the forums for full download links and details

Leaked: BlackBerry 10 OS for Dev Alpha devices


Looks like the cat is out of the bag...

Check out @Authomator, @LottoTrackr, and MintChip Wallet for BB10!

I already downloaded OS version on Jan 30 on my Dev Alpha B. It is not a full version.

Are you saying is a fuller version, more than the


Newer version with installation instructions available here: http://t.co/uTY81PMp
(also the download is from a different site (mega), which would be nice for anyone trying to get this because it looks like the server xsacha posted is getting hammered!)

I have installed os on my dev alpha A.
Works fine! :)
Everything works except Blackberry Balance.

Upgraded the Dev Alpha and it's working. Good to see the native apps and to test most of the cool features presented in the launch.

Foursquare works really fast. Facebook and Twitter now work also.

I had some errors with the videochat when trying to switch the camera or trying to share the screen.

Looks good overall.

This version prompts for an update that does away with the watermarks.

Glad to finally have a working BB10 device...
