Q10 what?! Another leaked OS for the BlackBerry Z10 has surfaced in the forums today, again courtesy of lbfe. This one is for the Z10 model STL100-1 / STL100-2 / STL100-3 only (sorry Verizon users).

Most of the 10.1 leaks seem to be fairing pretty well for most users so far, so if you haven't given it a go yet you may want to take the plunge.

Once again, you'll need a Windows PC to fire up the autoloader to get this installed. Also be sure to perform a full backup first and don't blame us if anything goes south.

Hit up the forums at the link below to download and for instructions.

Quick ques (sorry, sure it's been asked before somewhere), but if i load the leaked version, will i need to set Balance/etc up again (ie will i have to deal with my IT dept), or will it be seemless?

Posted via CB10

Thunderbuck

Yes, you will. Fortunately for me, I'm one of the BES admins in my company so I was able to re-activate for myself.

Thank you... guess that means waiting for official release for me.

My thoughts exactly, with so many leaked versions available, why no official release yet?

Posted via CB10

Supa_Fly1

RIGHT ON!

The last leak, #2, had issues where the phone dialer crapped out, along with the CAPSLOCK key when enabled, would freeze the app and you couldn't minimize nor peek/flow to the home screen or other menu's until the 3rd attempt.

Downloading ... but will wait a few day's before installation. I no longer have a PC and need to install Parallels with Win7 on my Mac to update.

rajbir01

This leak has whatsapp integrated into the hub!!!!!!

Posted via CB10

FernCommodari

I would not want that! It shows me casual acquaintances as favorites and real people I want to connect with can't be assigned in the stand alone version. I just want my hub imap mail accounts to work reliably!

I gotta say, I NEVER trust leaks. I'd much rather wait for the official release. Which begs the question: WHERE ARE THE OFFICIAL UPDATES?... All these leaks, you'd think they'd have on official OS update by now. I love the Q10 and I'm excited for it, but BB's gotta see that they also need the Z10 to perform well too. And having 10.1 available at launch with Skype and all the goodies that people want, will only HELP the Z10's sales more. There's a special niche of people that will gravitate to the Q10 but the Z10 is the best of both worlds. They cant lose focus on that.

kthhrrsn

I've been installing leaks for YEARS! But I haven't tried it on my 2 week old Z10 yet (no time!!). Most leaks that I've tried were eventually released by carriers...eventually. For me, installing the leak is about getting access to the latest and greatest as soon as possible, and without having to wait for the slow a$$ carriers to decided to release it. I get especially annoyed & impatient when there's significant new functionality in the new release.

Driftdreams

IDK, for me, its ballzy to try that. Even on my 9900, i was heavily tempted to download the update for T-Mobile. It ended up finally ended up being released a week before i got rid if it for the Z10. With BlackBerry stating it'll come in May, I'll wait out the few weeks. Though, I can understand others being impatient

Tomas Carrillo

I hope to see more official updates, for all carriers.

Posted via CB10

Kendall Oei

My guess is that each progressive leaked update is intended to fix the bugs early adopters have suffered through in earlier leaks. The fact that the official updates have not come out indicates to me that most of us don't want it yet. It's fun to be privvy to new features and be the one to tell people what's coming. I prefer a smartphone that continues to work.

The Q10 does not release in the US until the end of May according to Heins, so I would imagine it will be mid-to late June before 10.1 becomes available for the Z10.

well it released today here in Canada, i expect a week or so till official drops for us.

Dang, I'm away on business will have to wait until I get home to load this leak. 1483 is working very well for me. The only thing that doesn't work is the type and go email won't use the default email account to send emails. All other type and go features seem to work fine.

I hope this fixes that.

Telus official software update schedule has nothing coming in the near future... Although, it hasnt been updated since the end of March, so hopefully 10.1 isn't far off.

I do not understand why you would install a "leaked" version of any software to your phone. When the official version comes out you will then install that. So why not just wait for the official version. That is just me

sedalia066

The thrill of exploring new territory. The joy of restoring a bricked device. The ecstasy of having the latest and greatest. Why not?

For me it is all about all those things plus just because I am able to do so. That is just me.

yvpan1

yeah, as much as i'm soooooo tempted and as much as i've read sooo many positive comments in the forum, i've decided to wait for the official release. i believe the carriers are on their paths to release the OS. besides, everytime i force load the OS my contacts are always messed up so i need to link them up 1 by 1, that's such a pain!!!

keep moving, BB 10.1!!!

gliveron

Been using leak #2 (10.1.0.1483)for over a week now and loving it very much. Bugs with WhatsApp and BBTravel have all been resolved. I am getting the odd device reboot, but they're few and far between. Overall, my Z10 has been purring beautifully. I'll probably install the latest leak since each has gotten progressively better, to me personally at least.

Posted via CB10

xtremez

Just installed the last one yesterday, well the process was simpler than with legacy os (without delete vendor.xml in two places, needing 3rd party prog like bbsak)

Gonna give the last one (.1609) a spin for couple of days to break-in, unless this one many more updates.

Then I'm gonna attempt it again!

Posted via CB10

I think it's time for the official release.
Please hurry up.

Z10STL100-2/10.1.0.1627 just rocking the leaked OS, here's what I have noticed:

-first boot up didn't wait 100percent for the BlackBerry logo to load.

-better speed or should I say much faster compared to the previous leaked os.

-it fixes the "backspace" when the capslock is active.

Whatelse, battery performance still need to be observed.

Whom I need to thank for this leak os? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Installed the last leak and this one and this seems to be a lot better. It fixes the issues I had with Blackberry Work Drives and Adobe upgrade. Works great with the BES backend and is very quick and easy to install. What is there not to like?!

Aztronauta

Guys, stupid question from someone going to install his first leaked OS. Do I need to install Link on a Windows pc to do it or just the OS is enough? Will have to get a friends laptop to do it and didn't want to put more stuff than necessary there.

Posted via CB10

archigos

I backup my Z10 to my Mac using BlackBerry LInk, plug it into Windows to run the updater, and then restore my BlackBerry using BBLink for Mac. This has worked for both the last leaked version and this one.

Aztronauta

Thanks, man. Less hassle like this. But for sure we could have a OSX version of the autoloader as well. Would save lots of time and trouble.

Posted via CB10

archigos

No problem. Another related comment I should make is that I have tried to use the updater on 3 different Windows VMs and could never get it to work. I had to use my Windows gaming box. My guess is that Boot Camp would work just as well.

archigos

I've notice that stability is much improved in this leaked version over the 10.1.0.14xx version. Another important point I noticed was that Adobe Reader's latest update refused to install on the previous LV but installed no problem on this one. I haven't noticed substantial performance gains but with noticeable stability improvements I'm happy.

APN settings still can not be edited when you put in some SIM cards on unlocked phones.
This is not good for traveling and switching SIM if you want data.

Improved:
when you want to edit text now the round tool is much better to handle to edit words/characters or so.

WhatsApp in the hub. But I am not able to disable it to show up in the upper hub box.

Can't get into the keyboard and language settings anymore

More help/instructions when starting the os for the first time. You have to follow the instructions or you won't get rid of them.

Battery life is under observation. Last leak (1609) had terrible battery life for some reason.

Initial view looks like this leak has much improved standby performance (DevAlpha) is still showing three quarters charge after 24 hours on standby.

We just have to be patient for the official release. BlackBerry need to test this properly so that there are minimal live issues. The OS is still embryonic and will take a couple of years to mature. In the meantime BlackBerry need to get their development and release priorities right, otherwise they will out big time.
