By now, I'm sure a lot of you have installed the latest 10.2.1 leaked OS. We first saw it drop for the BlackBerry Q10 and BlackBerry Q5 and, surprisingly the BlackBerry Z10 STL100-1 model, which usually gets left out. Soon afterwards, if finally dropped for BlackBerry Z30 and Z10 owners who were itching to try it out.

So good and impressive were the new features on this latest leak that it made me break my no leak policy on my main device. The forums are buzzing with people discovering all the neat little additions to be found, like contact profiles, new BBM icons and the ability to install APK files directly.

In CrackBerry fashion, we're bringing a video walkthrough of some of the cool new features available in OS 10.2.1. From the awesome pinch gesture in the Hub, to custom quick settings, to Device Monitor, even the new call screen. Don't forget there's also the new Pic Password too. There are probably lots more new things to discover, as well as more to come when the official version drops. Until then, check out the video above and then hit up the comments and let us know what you think.

There're are a lot more goodies than what she showed in the video.

Thanks for that I've never been so tempted to install a leak.

rat_time

It is worth it, I installed my first leak but I was having big problems with the official 10.2.0.424. There are a few glitches that I've experienced with 10.2.1, I have to keep my rotation lock when running apk apps or my screen goes haywire, Facebook stopped working with the hub properly, someone said reinstalling it works, but I can't seem to access my accounts anymore, just loads forever lol. I've loaded 1 mobile, good e reader, and amazon which actually install the apk right after the download is finished, all in all the new OS is quite impressive!

I love the Doctor Who ringtone and background. Are you ready for the Day of the Doctor :) I am.

makaiman

One of the most important features NEVER mentioned is the relationship to "BlackBerry Protect", where it was declared by BlackBerry somewhere along the line that we would have the ability as in the previous BBOS to "retrieve BlackBerry 10 Backups" from the Protect Website. What is the status? I'll ask that in the forums now...

jogofeio

How do you make the settings background black? I could only do it for calendar. Thanks!

DJ Reyes

Settings is black by default for the Q10 and Z30 due to the AMOLED screen

fairycake

But I don't think peeps would mind a longer video of cool features? For me the longer the video of cool features the better :)

Skeptical but I think I am going to upgrade my self in stead of waiting on Verizon. They said that there is no word on when we might see any updates for the os

scalemaster34

Pretty sure that if Verizon releases an update anytime soon it will be 10.2.0.xxxx, not a 10.2.1.xxx.

I'd go for it.... it's not like the official current Verizon OS is bug free.

tli2000

I'm on Verizon as well. Just updated to 10.2.0.1791 with Sachesi. As soon as I can get this one the same way, I'm in.

I don't like the new call screen to be honest. The old one is huge and can be used without even looking. Does anyone agree with me?

BB_Ooo

Totally agree. Just make it more obvious for the simple ones that can't understand

Posted via Me on my Z

Anonymous2039

It's simple enough. There are subtle animations that make it clear that you have to slide it, and it pulses and stuff. Watch the video.

BBrickk

Agreed. They might as well make the call screen customizable ( Vertical or horizontal) and users get to choose what they're most comfortable with!

Yup. Wouldn't be hard to install an option for that

I totally know what you are saying. But I am starting to like it.

The hilarious part is that my iPhone friends now know how to answer it. It was funny watching them before. But I think this is the reason they had to change.

Posted via CB10

BlackB_G

Nah. I dont agree with you. I love the new call screen. Especially the txt icon that shows for auto text reply if you don't wanna answer the call. It's lovely. Please font bring the swipe up/swipe down back.

Posted via CB10

shahyaz

The one one is probably made for larger screen sizes, where hanging up a call would require a second hand's involvement. However, I do like the current layout; I'll try the new one though. I'm sure it has some merit.

rdouble

I completely agree. At the least they should give us the option between the two.

talberry

Agree with that too!

Posted via CB10

kendes64

I don't mind either screen, but my wife made a good point about the new one. She said women who have smaller hands have trouble cancelling the call by swiping all the way it to the top with one hand. Now she said it's easier to ignore my calls!!

Kendes64

djsrt

Lol! Give her a high five for me :)

Posted via CB10

TBone4eva

Does she not use the same gesture to unlock her phone multiples times a day? This is why I don't get this argument about it being too hard to swipe up to ignore a call. In addition you don't have to swipe all the way to the top. You just flick the bar and it will go to the top.

Notcho

Bahahaha

Totally agree with you even tho for the Z30 users, it might be a little easier to accept or denied calls with one hand, but I honestly think that the actual call screen is so much more original.

Posted via CB10

Carmels

Ya I was hoping that this was an option and not a complete change as I like the current answer setup in 10.2.

From my Z10 to YOU, BOO-YAH!

fairycake

Yes I agree the old one is well better. Can't get my head round why they are c hanging it. The original call screen button is in the perfect place for your thumb. Now you have to do gymnastics with you thumb to answer now.

If they really needed to change from left to right at least leave it in the middle so you can comfortably get to it...

Please tell BlackBerry to change ping sounds. Make it like BB OS ping notification. This the most important because it can differentiate between BBM Sound or someone ping you to let you know that it want to let you know and reply.

Speed dial for Q10 and volume display is definitely the best features of OS 10.2.1! Old volume display was so annoying in the middle of the screen especially when your watching a clip from Youtube!

Anyone else notice the Play Store apk file in the downloads? :)

DJ, thanks for the video; i'm excited!

DJ Reyes

The Play Store you saw was just the Play Store logo :D. Otherwise it just says .apk one it. Glad you enjoyed the video

Denny_Crane

I love everything you just showed us with the exception of the swipe horizontally to answer/reject a call...I hate the looks of that! As a right-handed person it's natural for me to swipe right, not left. I can totally see myself accidentally rejecting calls. Plus I hate that it's more iPhone-esq now. The swipe down was way better.

Also I'm still looking for the following updates:
-Further customization with profiles. For example, I want to set all alerts to silent but have phone calls vibrate. Right now I have to set it no sound/vibration so I'm not distracted by emails all day, but this means I miss important calls.
-I need the ability to file sent messages from my device (move them from the Sent folder to another folder)
-One-touch dial wasn't in the video, but my understanding is that is coming

Thunderbuck

Yes, 1-touch dialing is available on keyboard models (yes, it works from the dial pad on full-touch models, too).

I liked the original call screen, but the reach for my thumb is easier left-right. And I don't anticipate that anyone but the color-blind will mistake which direction they should swipe in.

arvind1983

+100, right handed persons need time to get used to.

Seun Ogodo

Looks too much like android
They should keep the old call screen

Love the new call screen,feels more like a blackberry phone and it is operable with one hand ,i can't wait for this update .I hate actual call screen ,swipe up-down its such a mess.,im always confused and have to watch 2-3 seconds before answearing or denying call..

I would have agreed with with all the people who dislike the the new call screen...but having used it I honestly reckon it's better and looks nice as well

I welcome these new updates, i would still like the option to theme my blackberry, to make it my own. aside from that good review.

khalbleib

What is the best way to obtain all files?

ikalinin

THANK YOU FOR THAT!!
also, you tried to block out the # when you called, but then the box disappeared and you can pause the video to get the #.. also, its then listed as a missed call w/ the entire phone number.. so may wanna hide it to keep it safe! :)

graham bowers

The call screen is no big deal. Swipe green to answer, swipe red to reject... not rocket science! I love the new leak, and love the picture lock screen, although the video on how to use it did help me.... thanks for everything... it's good to see BlackBerry isn't slowing down :)

Posted via CB10

arvind1983

But swiping directions are not good. Swipe left to answer call and right to reject? It should be the other way around, atleast for right handed persons.

I plug my z10 it into my car stereo to listen to music. I have my screen set to stay on as long as it will allow me(5mins I think). Is there anyway to change the settings so when my z10 is plugged into a power source the screen will stay on. I also have orbit app i would love to use in a bed side mode. Anyone know how to do it.

i also noticed a new flashlight quick setting which is really cool. does 10.2.1 also include smime support for activesync accounts now?

Found the following issue with 10.2.1 - going forward I hope the BBLeak team will check and preview movies from Blackberry world before releasing a leak :)

I wasn't able to watch a movie ("Now you see me") which I had rented through Blackberry World. Could you please convey this to Blackberry for them to fix this asap -- as it means that Blackberry is loosing precious revenue sources.

It throws a dialog box with the following error message while trying to play the rented movie:

The file can't be played due to an unexpected error.

Why wait for a year for the Z50 if then, when you can get this now on your device? As much as it is good to plan for the future of BB, no one knows for sure what that is, and it is highly unlikely they are going to put out a new phone when the Z30 just hit the states. Help BB out now by purchasing a Z10 or Z30 don't wait for something everyone is unsure of, regardless of the rumors about something new

looking good! particularly with the battery life as well. just noticed that the phone was actively being used for the entire video shoot and the battery juice was only 1% used at the end of the video. Z30 + 10.2.1 OS = MONSTER!

OTCHRussell

That looks really good especially being able to delete only from device.
I like the new call screen. Even after 5 months swiping down to answer seems awkward.
Very tempting, but I don't want a leak. I want the official one. Come on AT&T!!!!!!

This is all cool (except the call screen). But, they really need to be prepared to teach people about this.

There were all kinds of crazy options in the BB07, but a lot of people never used them. So, instead of setting them to be helpful, they were just kind of ignored and perceived as being cumbersome.

Thanks for the video!

Don't let the door hit you on the way out. Get on the leak or get out or stop whining. Your not true BlackBerry material.

Only reason people use android or apple is cause or ignorance and or stupidity. Immaturity. Lack of ability to think. BlackBerry 10.2.1. Has no equal. No one in the same league.

I don't like the new call screen. I think it would be awkward to slide the phone to the left to answer a call. I have a Z10, and my hands are medium sized ladies hands. I think it would be uncomfortable to slide sideways.

They should add a way to get rid of spam emails. Just like how they have deleting emails on phone and online.

I love the new update and since I have installed the leak I have been incredibly happy with my phone. It's like new again lol

I really like everything they have done.. even the call screen as I find the pictures more crisp and clear (even the detail for unknown callers is nice) and simple to operate.

The menu options is amazing and having the flashlight, ability to change brightness are a big bonus for me.

If there was anything I would complain about it is probably the picture password. I have had trouble with it to start although it has become easier... might be just a user error. even with that said I would hate to see other people go through all the time to set it up and not have it work right away

Hmm... the call screen used previously was replaced due to the big screen of z30... receiving calls by swiping up might have caused issues to some....
Btw.. I love the old call screen... was something different than the rest :)

I have the leak but the call screen is still the same as 10.2. How do I get the new cs?

Please BlackBerry, do no implement that new call screen. Please add multiple wall papers. Love the addition of the format and attachments at the top of the keyboard for emails.. possibly add this feature for text and bbm, possibly via a clever way of bringing it up, would great. Love that pinch feature in the hub. Would love to see some battery improvements made.. please bring back PING vibrate in bbm, or else what it the ping good for. Just saying...
Please add some of these features that are not hardware limted, cut off from the Z10 and made exclusively for the Z30 in the last update available on the Z10.. would get the Z30 but love the screen size on the Z10... perfect in my opinion.. next rendition should have a more solid body like the Z30 and Q10... please.

Last but not least... please do not take forever to release this 10.2.1... there are currently some glitches in the 10.1 which need to be rectified. do not wait for the release of the next phone to bring these great features to current bb10 users... make sure everything runs smoothly and let it go... there is an uphill battle and these are great strides being made...

Dear Verizon, when you release 10.2.1 for Z30, I will consider it due time to officially retire my trusty 9930.

(...as if a Verizon rep would actually read this!)

Looking awesome!! Just need a new home screen. Would love to just have icons at bottom for first screen on no icons at all. With a simple swipe the menu can appear or something like that.

Hello DJ Reyes. I think this is the first video of yours I've watched on Crackberry. I enjoyed the way you presented the features. Not a fan of the new phone answering method but I'll get use to it. Does it still have the tap to silence option as well? On 10.1 you can just tap without sliding to silence the phone ring.

DJ Reyes

Yes, tap to silence is still around

When is the Official update coming?

Would love to load this if I could get comfortable it wasn't going to create freezing and other issues. This might have been asked - but does the original 10.2 need to be loaded or can one simply load this as is?

All new features are simply awesome, except the call screen. I liked the older one more..

Does the call screen have the option to see from which company the person is calling?

Thank You DJ ! Pinch in hub was missing from my experience: LOVE IT !

Now only if they would change the vibrate notification to include short, normal and long.

Just a small improvement goes a long way.
