While Vodafone UK has taken their sweet time rolling out BlackBerry 10.2.1, it appears as though they may have had a good reason for doing so. They've actually rolled out a later OS then everyone else. Folks on Vodafone UK and various other UK carriers are now seeing OS 10.2.1.2141 appearing on their devices as software version 10.2.1.2102.

As far as we can tell, this release has a few bug fixes but also and updated Android Runtime to go along with it. Like all updates, your mileage on when you get the update will vary but it's been confirmed for the Z10, Z30, Q10. This OS started appearing earlier today but we wanted to be sure it was actually rolling out before fully posting. If you hang tight, we might be able to get some autoloaders for it as well.

I got the update on a Vodafone locked z10..... but it has no sim card, how does that work?

I don't care for WIFI calling but it may be the reason why Tmobile hasn't released 10.2.1 yet.

Whoever these US carrier reps are they need to get smacked. Whoever is in charge of carrier relations at BlackBerry too. This is ridiculous. US carriers are doing this on purpose there is no way in hell it takes this long to test and release one of the 10.2/10.2.1 builds it's been available for testing for months now. All you US users should be complaining you pay a lot of money this is the least they can do. Instead they send you emails about iPhone sales. WTF.

dcsappernh

Especially as Vodaphone and Verizon are inextricably linked!

And Verizon has had a working 10.2 version on the Z30 working for months already.

Patrick Pierobon

Seems like BB10 is very fragmented. Giving people different perceptions of the OS depending on which one they are using. They need to clean this up so they can have a unified version that is available to everyone.

rbrar03

They don't want to upset the carriers. They are a minority right now if the market. I know that most people don't even know what these updates do.

Shortly received the upgrade from Vodaphone UK :)

Anyone know what this release entails?

If like me you couldn't wait for Vodaphone to release the initial 10.2.1 update and used another Sim card, in my case, EE, the upgrade went smooth without any noticeable issues.

To znaczy, że u Ciebie nie działa? Swoją drogą już jakiś czas temu zastanawiałem się dlatego dostępność aktualizacji miałaby być uzależniona od danej sieci komórkowej. Gdy kupielm moje Q10 (na allegro, bez umowy) pierwsze uruchomienie wykonałem bez karty sim, podlaczylem się do WiFi i aktualizacja wykonała się automatycznie.

rozumiem obie strony. byłoby łatwiej, jeśli BlackBerry pchnął wszystkie te aktualizacje bezpośrednio do nas, ale czasami przewoźnik wie najlepiej!

I understand both sides. it would be easier if BlackBerry pushed all these updates directly to us, but sometimes the carrier knows best!

Posted via CB10

medianemesis

10.2.1.537 is the Software Release Number for OS Version 10.2.1.1925. These are the two different numbers that accompany every BB10 OS release and they mean different things. You can check the OS drop-down menu in your Settings/About phone options to confirm this.
The new OS Version is 10.2.1.2141 (which will have a higher OS Release Number than what you have currently) and it is higher than the 10.2.1.1925 you most likely have and is therefore an update.

At last... been waiting a while... if the android runtime works as well as I hoped then it's another Z30 on the way and ditch the note3... downloading now!

What does the software release mean? Someone please help me. I got a notification Vodafone UK today saying that OS version 10.2.1.2141, just so you know.

Hi Guys,

I recently downloaded the latest update from Vodafone NL. Looks great BUT I can not open my Parkline, Shazam, Google Maps, and more since the update. Any advice or similar problems and if so, please let me know.

I installed 10.2.1.2141 and also have this issue with google maps. It's not possible to install new maps using snap or use previous version prior to upgrade. :( No joy so far.

SparrowhawkMMU

Anyone know whether I can use a Vodafone SIM to update my Z10 STL-2 on Three uk (unlocked) to this OS or is the newer OS version Vodafone-specific?

Three are still dragging their feet :(

Posted via CB10

madasaman

Why not download Sachesi,
use Country code 234
Carrier 015(VF)
Device Z10
Variant STL 100-2
Download all and when your phone is coupled to PC via usb cable click install
I used this to download the previous O2 version to my Q10 because VF were dragging their feet. Easy peasy

SparrowhawkMMU

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. I already have both Vodafone and O2 SIMs so it's not a downloading issue but rather I just wanted to make sure that this latest OS version is not different due to Vodafone specific radios etc. If it is I'll use the O2 one instead as that has been reported to work with Three's network.

But I appreciate the instructions re the alternative route. I've saved them in Remember in case I decide to do a sachesi install someday. :)

Posted via CB10

SparrowhawkMMU

I decided to wing it! Went with the Vodafone SIM and all's well (did a backup first of course)

Post-update I had to switch the network type off 3G & 2G to just 3G and back again to get 3G working.

Now also getting H+ instead of just H speeds too. Seems like Three had locked that down but the Vodafone update freed it. Bonus.

theservant

For those unsure about the difference between Software Release and OS version, here's my take on it.

Software Release - relates to Hardware Firmware, updates may come in the form of patches/fixes/performance improvements for the various chips on the phones motherboard - in particular the various phone modems for voice & data e.g. 3G and LTE 4G chips and more importantly switches ON your phone, passes control to OS. Think of it as equivalent to a computers BIOS.

OS Version - is the equivalent of Windows on your computer and consists of a kernel (system files) that detects & harnesses the phones hardware (cpu, memory, gpu, Ram etc.) through memory management, power management , application management etc and importantly how we interact with the mobiles interface.

And yesterday the carrier I use, Vodafone Portugal, pushed over wifi a 14MG update to 10.2.1.2102. I was a little surprised as I am visiting the UK and do not have the phone connected at all to the vodafone network as I do not wish to have any roaming charges.

I accepted the update and it seems to be working fine..
