Earlier this week, we saw OS 10.1.0.1483 roll out to developers. Many non-developers loaded on their device only to discover that it wasn't exactly a full OS. Now though, lbfe from the CrackBerry Forums has either found (or put together) a full version of OS 10.1.0.1429 for several of the BlackBerry Z10 variations out there. In any case, we're going to treat this as a leaked version and give the regular warnings and disclaimers that go along with that.

Right then, as always - use caution when installing a leaked OS like this and remember if you break your phone it's not our fault. Also, a good idea to make a backup because you're essentially performing a factory restore on your device. If you don't want to lose data, a backup is needed. You'll need a Windows PC to install these files and If it goes downhill, remember you can always wipe and restore your device.

Leaked OS 10.1.0.1429 for the BlackBerry Z10

314 Comments

I'm debating doing it. Link won't connect to my BlackBerry so I can't backup. More troubleshooting needed haha.

Posted via CB10

You need to add BlackBerry Link in the allow list of programsa in Windows firewall. Fixed a lot of problems I had.

Posted via CB10

Uninstall link and then download and re install link from BLACKBERRY.com - do not upload the version from your phone. Following this procedure has fixed my backing up issues.

I can not confirm it now since i haven't experienced my first lowbat. I'm gonna inform once it recieved the first lowbat

what are the biggest changes? Would you recommend loading it for someone who hasn't done this before?

I gotta say this OS is awesome, if you can't wait till this OS comes-out later in the end of April or first week of May you really need to install this for it will make your waiting done :) All new.

p.s. i had my z10 for already a week :) from .90 to .822 to this new OS

Can someone please list the improvements and changes? Mostly does it now have a pattern lock or at least just a numeric keyboard for the pass code lock? Boy its hard to unlock it with one hand on the full keyboard.

something bad i see is that whenever it loads a sideloaded app it takes time for that app to run

edit: only at first open of one app it setups the android player

There's already a thread with a ton of discussion, for me Z10STL100-3/10.1.0.1429 and Rogers works pretty good so far! I'm quite happy and keeping it

i swear i was not going to load another leaked update after i replaced my storm2.. but it's an addiction.. i can't help it.

i need a 12 step program.

Anyone with the 100-4 version from Verizon getting reboots when unplugging from charging either with a car charger or home charger?

Posted via CB10

No way. I am not taking any risks with a leaked version. I'd rather wait for the software to pop up on my phone itself and then update it. But like always, who did it work for? :D

Posted via CB10

There really aren't any risks. Worst case scenario you risk loosing some data if you have to restore an older backup or flash back to stock. I dont think it's possible to hard brick a Blackberry (or at most it is very rare). But the choice is yours.

awesome. thanks. DL now, and backing up my device. dont know my pin off hand but i will add when im dont with back up

It's great.
Really smooth, browser improvement, HDR camera and much more.
No issues so far :D

Posted via CB10

Great now we're going to have a bunch of bricked Z10, once the ID10T users try it. :S
Doesn't matter that CB posted the disclaimer, there will be those that choose to ignore it. Sooooo many people new to BlackBerry are so darn impatient with the new platform.

Posted Via CB10 on my Zed10

Yep. And they'll be complaining how much BlackBerry sucks cuz they ruined their phones....

Posted via CB10

+2 Word....Actually I ran into a similar issue...Being impatient and not performing a backup and voila....:-( All back to normal now. However PLEASE do bear in mind that: SOME backups are not "upwards" compatible...ran into this 'hurdle'earlier this week..;-)

Even the least experienced user, if they follow Directions, will not mess it up and the demographic that BBRY sells to are us, smart enough to flash a software to any device. I been doing it for years but am waiting on an official release.(might do the update but go back when official drops)

You mist be fairly new to Blackberry. The risks are minimal (read: almost nonexistent). We've been doing this on the old platform for years... only difference is we have a self extracting executable now instead of a zip file and the os loader. . The disclaimer is basically a formality.

Has it added landscape on the home screen and other native apps? That's what I was hoping for most...

Derek from my Z10!

Howcome stl100-1 is left out again? First it waa the dark knoght rises i cant download, now its this leak.. im beginning to be impatient with this model.

Posted via CB10

My phone is working well enough that I am not going to go through the hassle, much less the risk

Posted via CB10

I don't have the balls to install a leaked os, but it sounds like 10.1 is a real upgrade. Can't wait for it to be released ota!

Posted via CB10

So far this OS is smoking smooth...on VZW. loving the speed and snappiness. Granted you need patience initially, but once set up I have to say I am very impressed

If I wasn't such a coward about risking the bricked phone I would do this. But I love my z10 too much to risk it lol. But if it is as good as it sounds I can't wait to get this upgrade.

Posted via CB10

DL now. Hope Mega works cuz the other leak Mega wont DL.
F*** spoken too soon. Now it stuck at 22%. Mega sucks. Mirror it please.

Interesting.

Hub preferences do NOT restore - at least not from BBLink partial backup (partial as in no media selected to back).

Settings shows new entry called BBLink;
IMPORTANT!: IF you're Z10 is carrier OS locked as in the OS is from the carrier ...
Benefits: no more branding
CONS: SMS is GONE!!!
> This allows you to access your PC files remotely & sync media plus documents with your BB device even dwonloading files over mbile network.

Update:
in Link, I unchecked the top Full restore and noticed the warning in red to sign into my BB_ID. That was required for all my content to be fully restored and visible as well as accessible in the Hub. All my data is no working. I just had to re-authenticate my email account passwords.
30 Days can go funk a dink - proper email is back on BlackBerry WOO HOOO!

No required.

in Link, I unchecked the top Full restore and noticed the warning in red to sign into my BB_ID. That was required for all my content to be fully restored and visible as well as accessible in the Hub.

hmmm.. i hav a verizon z10..which is the stl-100-4. hmmm! idk cant do it..want to but i jus cant... havnt had any trouble wit my z10...so i'll wait till the offical os..upgrade!!

RoczSingh, Since the start of CB Leaked OS's, custom versions, all types of experiments have been offered all use at your own risk. This could be your first leaked OS... Warning it is a gateway drug.... You'll want more, how fitting it is on 4-20.

I installed it. Works good. Be careful though some apps might not work. 360 panorama doesn't want to install. After that all the other apps works fine. Make sure you make a backup, I didn't do one and I got screwed lol.

Posted via CB10

STL100-1 should be back in RIM's hands. Plus its outdated hardware, why provide support for it when you are suppose to turn it in.

Posted via CB10

STTL-1 is for countries which dont have LTE. These Z10s are not outdated or obsolete, just being practical. Why would BB put in a chipset that has a complete radio that wont be used and costs more. Most of the world doesn't have LTE anyway.

Already downloaded, will install right after I'm back home from shopping. Thanks life. I vote MVP of the entire CrackBerry forum.

Posted via CB10

Done. Restored and running. Love it. Fixed my HUB issues of filed messages appearing when I had that option set to "no". Sweet.

Posted via CB10

tried installing from MEGA for past our, maybe 8 attempts, they ALL got stuck and stopped on 68%. timers stopped and everything.

You were correct, I did it yesterday and it downloaded at twice the speed with no errors.
Thank you sir

The STL100-1 has a different processor, so that is probably why this version doesn't work with it.

I'm so tempted to load this. I think I'll hold off and if nothing new comes out at the beginning of May, I'll bite the bullet.

Posted via CB10

considering it was only a few days after the last leak that carriers starting releasing the update in rapid concession Im just goona wait this one out.

Working like a charm on my z10 from tmobile -3 :) lots of improvements. Don't know about battery yet obviously but regarding customization there's a lot. Vibrate profiles , camera improvements, a lot. Recommended

Posted via CB10

BlackBerry Bridge doesn't install for me. The Adobe Reader update also doesn't install. Otherwise, no other obvious problems so far. I like the new keyboard.

Posted via CB10

no love for STL100-1. what thing i dont about the new bb10 is that variations in same models. i understand the whole different network things, but why have a different processor and os?

chern - posted vía Z10

Yes you use Blackberry Link to back up your Z10.

There is a STL 100-4 version which is the model type for Verizon's Z10s.

I just installed it and getting ready to do a restore of my backup. Being a Verizon guy, I am so used to leaks as a means to upgrade my phone. Its normal for me.

I have noticed in the calculator app that the percentage button has made a welcome return.

Posted via CB10

So is there going to be a official version of this for the STL-100 or only for the rest? Am I supposed to regret not checking the version of the BlackBerry I got??

Posted via CB10

Why no leak for the STL100-1? This is unfair. There are lots of BlackBerry STL100-1 users here in middle east. Why no love for us despite the fact that middle east supports BlackBerry products.

Posted via BlackBerry Z10 for life...

I faced the same issue, got sick of waiting with my STL100-1 so I went and got my self am STL100-2... now am up to date with the rest of the world.....

Posted via CB10

The STL100-1 was out right after the DEV-ALPHA device. It has limited and basic functions. As it doesn't have battery improvements or 4G speed. If you love BB you should always talk to them.

Posted via CB10

The STL100-1 has all the same functionality as the other variants. It just doesn't have LTE. Since there's no integrated baseband, the CPU is actually a little bit faster (larger caches). It's a trade-off, but it's definitely not a limited device. It does require a separate OS though, due to different drivers and whatnot.

for some reason when I try to log in to the link it doesn't work has anyone else had this problem?

Posted via CB10

Wish me luck, gonna try this one too! I installed the AT&T version on my Verizon z10 with no major issues, some app didn't want to open so I did a factory set and problem fixed, after the AT&T update my phone hasn't rebooted not once.

Posted via CB10

BlackBerry us lucky to have so many Beta testers. I can wait. (but I understand how many people here like to be First)

Posted via CB10

APN is locked for me - due to my device being SIM card locked to Rogers Wireless; this makes perfect sense to me. Why would a carrier or BlackBerry allow me to screw with APN settings only to to not work on a carrier locked smartphone and generate unnecessary support calls to the carrier? Not a way to keep a good relationship going. Seriously why are APN settings so damn important to all these people; especially when their devices are SIM locked to the carrier? If it was unlocked it should be editable.

This new OS seems to be a LOT faster loading apps and loading browser pages - the latter didn't really need an improvement but welcome indeed.

Dd you know you can carrier-unlock your Z10.... I mean, giving it is yours and you should be able to use it with whichever carrier you like...

Yes I know I can carrier unlock my Z10 ... I'm not new to SIM cards, smartphones or even feature phones; I have been using them for over 10yrs now. ;) I'm an oldschool PDA user where PIM was king and still should be at the core of a smartphone - many of which cannot even do proper PIM today.

PS: If you have to lookup what PIM is you're newer to this market than I am and you probably cannot recall which networks in Canada, USA or globally where core GSM networks and how many bands originally where offered globally.

APN settings do matter to a lot of people that want to use their unlocked devices with different carriers. Me for example. I use roam mobility when I'm in the states. I can't get data because blackberry doesn't let you change the APN settings (legacy devices and Z10). Even if the devices are unlocked. I'm hoping that this changes with the 10.1 update. That way I could use t-mobile 4G when I'm in the US. Yes t-mobile is the carrier roam mobility uses. Any one with an unlocked Z10 that upgraded to this os let me know please.

Posted via CB10

Back in the BlackBerry os days I would have jumped on a new os in a heartbeat. It's funny how now I am way too cautious and even a little afraid to do it with my Z10.

Posted via CB10

No issues so far. I saw a photo a while ago showing battery percentage just below the battery icon. How do you put it on? --'

Posted via CB10

Just notice on WhatsApp when you change your pic. It gives you the option to edit the pic. Keyboard so far is better for me.. battery has been better so far.

Posted via CB10

Anyone noticed that on the keyboard... the letters are placed differently? Everything else seemed to be working very well and smoothly...

What do you mean the keyboard looks same to me except the space bar auto correct turns green

Posted via CB10

So guys why it's not available For my Z10 STL100-1 I would love to try it, is there way to do it ?

Posted via CB10

Just loaded this up on my Sasktel Z10. Had been waiting to even get my hands on 10.0.10 through Sasktel so getting this leak was like a godsend. So far, so good.

Posted via CB10

Installed on a rogers stl 3, no issues works well knock on wood took five mins to do very easy :)

Posted via CB10

The dev os could be installed in STL100-1 -2 -3 -4 but the other os the auto loader which makes the Dev OS Full 10.1 is not compatible to STL100-1 that's because STL100-1 uses another chipset aside from -2 -3 -4. STL100-1 user would need to wait until the official counterpart release of the official release of -2 -3 -4's 10.1
That would come either end of april or first week of may. :) TO CLEAR THINGS UP this os is working beautifully and flawlessly, No issues! :)

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to point out that this update only brings a menu option in flow for "Send Broadcast Message". The most recent carrier update (on Rogers 10.0.1.85) already had the ability to send a broadcast message - it just was not listed in the main flow menu.

In this update you STILL have to select the users in your BBM contacts, to me a broadcast should auto select all users in your BBM list.

Cheers.

No SLT100-1? Bad update from BlackBerry, its time to put in the selling list

Posted via CB10

I am also gonna wait for the official its not that long away now let's hope it's worth the wait.

Posted via CB10

Not ready for prime time yet. A number of applications ate not compatible. SayIt does not work, BlackBerry Bridge cannot be installed, Adobe Reader cannot be updated, etc. Definitely a beta leak, bit still very impressive. I did not think this phone can get faster, yet 10.1 screams when compare to 10.0 series.

Posted via CB10

Don't you get it? The dev version work on -1 but the leaked os which is hybrid WONT WORK BECAUSE OF HARDWARE DIFFERENCES

I think I'll wait a week, see if it pops up officially, hoping that apps will be ready for this update. I like the improvements offered, but the only real issue I had was rebooting, and that hasn't happened in the 48 hours since I put in a brand new sd card. Hope that fixed it...

To those who keep asking about the 100-1 read some of the pages of comments first, don't just post asking where it is, have a bit of patience and when you've read and understood, realise that you'll have to wait for an official release

Posted via CB10

A hint, if anybody on a BES plans to do the update: You need to activate the device on the server again and complete the task to be able to do a restore of the balance-part. So don't do it without access to the BES :-)
I'm still restoring...but I saw the "unlimited" in email-storage already.

What about for the guys EMEA, any leaked Os for Z10STL100-1/10.0.10.648

Or anyone tried for STL100-1?

Thanks in advance.

Posted via CB10

Before asking read this couple of questions that common people who don't read ask:

Why is there no STL100-1 10.1 OS no love?
-The Dev OS works on STL100-1 but the leak vesion (the full features one) doesn't support STL100-1 because of hardware differences between -1 with -2 3 and 4

Is this safe?
-For everyone's sake YES but you need to STRICTLY follow the procedure step by step or you might brick your Zed

When will the official non-leak OS comeout?
-No assurance yet.

Are all the features here?
-Yes

When for STL100-1?
No assurance also wait for OTA updates

In Turkey we are using STL100-1. It doesn't have 4G etc. I paid 1050$ to buy z10! I don't like this situation. I can give it back.

Posted via CB10

What is wrong with some of you people who have the -1 version? Do you not read other people's comments before you post your own? This OS 10.1 is a hybrid leak version of the operating system. It is not coming from BlackBerry. Stop whining like children crying and bitching. I have -3 and I'm not installing this OS because it's not an official OS.

Going on a trip tomorrow and i cannot risk not having a phone for the trip. Will upgrade when i get back..... oh the wait is killing me

Z10 STL100-2

Before asking read this couple of questions that common people who don't read ask:

Why is there no STL100-1 10.1 OS no love?
-The Dev OS works on STL100-1 but the leak vesion (the full features one) doesn't support STL100-1 because of hardware differences between -1 with -2 3 and 4

After update anything works well. Ok Whatsapp is not in the Hub but i dont Café about this small issue.

Posted via CB10

Adobe Reader and BlackBerry bridge can't be updated . It shows green when choose the word...so ugly

Posted via CB10

Key things for me: does it bring pass code unlocking, different sound profiles and notifications, better contact management, 2-way Outlook sync and a faster phone app?

Posted via CB10

Please read the previous comment about the stl 100 1. We are flooding the forum about the stl 100 1. Instead of reading what's new with the new update.

Posted via CB10

No stl100-1? Not fair? Why are we being sidelined and back 'burnered'? Blackberry please support us toooooooooo!!!!!

Posted via CB10

Can someone tell me if the side loaded app are taken into account when you backup your data? What about the mute issue? Is the profile notification improved?

Sent from my BlackBerry Z10

Facepalm at the number of STL 001 readers not reading the comments. Number 2 IT'S A NON OFFICIAL OS LEAK. Let that soak in your brain and to those that needed to ask wait until BlackBerry releases the official version.

CB10- BlackBerry Z10

i am losing all my phone contact after upgrade. i have full back up before upgrading, but after restoring, all but phone contact is restored. now how should i reinsert my phone contact data....

Posted via CB10

A simple, yet important question from me. When will we see a 'Play all' option for music files in File manager?

Posted via CB10

There r some features like.. u can lock n unlock from the button.. i cant c any hdr option in camera.. is it like the same as in iphone..where v have hdr option..??? Or it is by default hdr???

Posted via CB10

Any mirror site for these downloads.. am trying to download from morning but out of luck.

Mega Suck!!!!!

Posted via CB10

Thanks to whoever posted the myver shortcut to finding out your version and model. I may be late to the game but thanks.... I was going through the menu to get there. I wonder if there any other shortcuts like thank.

Thanks again

Posted via CB10

Just one simple question before I make the update, I have read the instructions how to install the update and it sound pretty easy specially I don't have to do almost nothing, so my question is how risky is it? Is it a high risk that it will break my device or it won't if I follow the simple instructions??

Posted via CB10

I'm a blackberry z10 stl100-1 yeah it's a leaked software we will have to wait for the official update to be released but I'm angry about the dark Knight rises not being supported by my device and i wish it could be fixed

Posted via CB10

sobfar the os runs smoothly, my contacts are all back, i guess the new os is just establishing it self. i had a hot battery at first and it drain my battery +/-40%. but all seems to stabilize now. all looks good. the update is 8 hours old and counting :)

Posted via CB10

Man this update leak makes my phone run very very fast. Improved flick typing. Awesome correction capabilities. Peek and flow is uber fast.

Posted via CB10

I'm using a Verizon version and so far what I have found is, Slacker Radio is not available and Twitter is there but doesn't work. Twitter is just like it was before the fix. Also it looks like the activation pulled in my .n2k file from Outlook because a lot of addresses are showing up that are not in my contacts. I think I will take mine back to the original and update my test phone to show users what is coming.

I have an unlocked BlackBerry Z10 device, software version 10.0.10.99, and I have always had the ability to change APN setting by going to settings - network connection - mobile networks and then pressing APN on the bottom.. am going to wait for the official update though ..

Posted via CB10

So u mean to tell me that the STL 100-1 is not running 1.5 dual core snapdragon? Processor.

Posted via CB10

Slick update, running on my STL100-3. Really like the improvements and just found out this morning the calculator app has been updated so you don't have to swipe down to get to Tips or Converter they are arranged as tabs above.

Are blackberry underestimate and do not care about asian market? Why they differentiate like this ?
Most of people in my country pay 710 USD Cash for z10 , and yet we have less spec that our American/European market. Money is not differentiate region or race.

I can't understand why Blackberry make less specs z10 to some countries and better specs to others !!!! You are absolutely correct , most of the negative comments comes from STL1 and STL2 owners , I have no idea why ???

Chipset A: TI OMAP 4470 1.5Ghz / Imagination GPU PowerVR SGX 544
Chipset B: QC Snapdragon MSM8960 1.5Ghz / Qualcomm GPU Adreno 225

just in case you didn't find it in the other post.

To all Indians: if you have the STL100-1 you have the TI OMAP. No matter what the legal blabla says. We in the UAE have the TI OMAP too. If you don't believe it, then just use geekbench2 and benchmark the STL 100-1 against any of the other versions and you will see.

That's also the reason why you can install Dev Alpha OS on your Z10, it's the same hardware and the Dev Alpha had....TI OMAP processor.

So, my 100-1 also says powered by QC but it's just not true, we have the TI OMAP in it, sadly.

To all who live in the UAE, I heard that Axiom Telecom will be of finally launching the LTE (4G) version of the Z10 soon

However am not sure if it would be the SLT100-2 or SLT100-3

You can buy the SLT100-2 from Olive Store in Dubai Deira...

PM me if anyone needs to store number for ordering since they do a free delivery to your doorstep....

Posted via CB10

Up to now I haven't seen a proper changelog whats new other than the HDR and calculator

Posted via CB10

when will i get SLT100-1 i am from india and this country is huge market why we are in last i think this is big issue of technology politics i think i must write article on this issue, if every os gives you same perspective why blackberry is treating like this.

Rasool...
The release for STL will come soon. Please understand that the release everyone is talking about is not the official one from BlackBerry. It is a leaked OS compiled by developers. One will come out soon for us too. Have some patience buddy.

Posted via CB10

I'm going to wait for the official release. It sounds like such a pain to get it all dialed in. My VZW Z10 has been working great as well.

Posted via CB10

Oh really? People are angry because there's no a leaked version for the stl100-1... I have that version, I don't really care for the leaked version, of course BlackBerry will have a version for all the Z10 variations. Maybe this guy only have access to the Snapdragon version and that's why we don't have a leaked version.

Posted via CB10

After switching from my 9700 to a Z10 I had missed switching OS on a regular basis(Used to test the B@stard Hybrids for OS6) And so far my comments are: Text selection is WAY easier, OS is dragging a bit but i just entered all my accounts so it has a LOT of data to sync.

By the way, my twitter app updated fine and is working. TELUS Canada

My bbm messenger keeps shutting dwn every time I try to type in a convo this is the worst leak I ever installed

Posted via CB10

Sorry, I love my Z10 far too much to take the chance. I've never bricked a phone before and I don't intend to start now ;) I can wait for 10.1
