OS 10.2 hit like a storm over the weekend and lots of users have fired up the leak on their Z10, Q10 or Q5. While it's far from an official release, it's running very well for most users. 10.2 has a slew of new features with it as well. Everything from priority hub to interactive notifications to lockscreen notifications.

If you were wondering just what all the new features in 10.2 are, the folks at BBNews.pl have compiled a changelog of sorts that lists many of the new features found in the leaked OS. The original list was in Polish but Ronen took the time to list it out in English so we have a sizeable list of what's new.

Note that this is not an official OS and thus this isn't an official changelog or list of features. Some of these may or not be in the final version upon release (whenever that is) so this is simply a guide of what's current in the leaked OS 10.2 and what could possible make it into an official version. 

If you find any features not listed here be sure to hit up the comments and let us know!

10.2 has headless??

varun wasan

We know some apps done in-house by BlackBerry already use background services, but what is particularly interesting is that they claim some app partners have already been including this in their applications. What that implies to me is that the current 10.0 and 10.1 device OS already has the support developers need to include background services without the need for a major OS update such as 10.2. All that may be required is an update to the NDK development kit which some select app partners already have access to.

So the next logical question to me would be - if it's already there then why is it taking so long? Well my theory on that is that BlackBerry is trying to ensure that developers can't go wild and start doing things in the background without the user knowing that are going to be detrimental to battery life. They have to have some safeguards in place so that the OS can limit what an app is doing when it can't been seen.

Hopefully this means that they have figured it out and we should start to see background apps available soon. As a developer I can say the most common feedback I hear from users is that they wish my apps didn't have to be open in an active frame.

Download and Install Blackberry Link.

Backup your phone

Close Link

Download autoloader, run autoloader with phone connected to PC

Let it do the magic :D

P.S. I usually never backup my phone but that is YOUR choice.

RafiqK

Run autoloader, make sure your phone is off..then plug it into your computer and turn on the phone..the autoloader will recognize it and then led will turn green.

Leave the phone and let it do it's thing..the phone will reset when done.

Hey Adam,
Where is wifi direct? I dont see it in connections. Do u have that option?

Kings

I dont see it Adam. Can you put up a screen shot of it in ur BlackBerry?

Posted via CB10

Just go to Network Connections > Wifi. There should be three tabs with Wifi / Wifi Direct / Miracast

I don't see anything apart from which networks are available and which network I'm connected to.

Agreed! 10.2 looks incredible, but as I use my Z10 an awful lot for work, I would rather wait for the official release then risk something going wrong at the least opportune moment :p

You need to tell people that it doesn't work for the still camera. It works for video, and should be obvious as to the Benefit of this feature. Unless you like it continually adjusting focus while recording.

Posted via CB10

MadMarti

It even works on the still camera, tried it on the Q5 on 10.1.0.4633 and 10.2.1047. On the latter this feature is visualized via a little lock icon. Here's a pic at the end of the thread: http://bit.ly/15UJD9B

"Locked" is a hit generous in still camera mode. As soon as I take a picture it unlocks and moves back to the centre just like before. ;)

Does it bring speed dial on home screen on the Q10??

Posted without the aid of AutoCorrect with my physical keyboard via CB10

RafiqK

It doesn't work on the home screen. But if you go into the phone app and then hold down a letter you programmed for a number..it will call it.

Honestly I find just typing "call Home"..for example on the home screen is pretty much as good imo.

But yes it does work, but only when you open up the phone app.

Posted via CB10 on my BlackBerry Q10 SQN100-5 w/ 10.2 OS

offyoutoddle

with respect, that's not speed dialling then is it? Its the same as 10.1 and hasn't been fixed then, despite promises by Blackberry to fix it. Marvellous. I'm sure this was announced as something they were going to fix, wasn't it? But then in my naivety I'm still waiting for my bridge to work as on previous BBOS phones too....

Suddenly I've lost interest in 10.2 leaks...... Anyone got 10.3 lying around anywhere?

slagman5

I take it you didn't come from an older BB like the 9900 where from the home screen without having to go anywhere you can simply hold down the letter you programmed and it'll start dialing? Seriously, why is this so hard? Just fix it already!!

Posted without the aid of AutoCorrect with my physical keyboard via CB10

RafiqK

Oh I definitely agree that they should fix it..its Def a simple fix.

I came from a BlackBerry bold to a touch and then to the Q10 but I never used the speed dial feature. Not everyone does. But your right it should be available on the Q10 just like previous BlackBerry keyboard devices..I tottaly agree. It's a easy fix and should of been incorporated from the get ggo.

Posted via CB10

slagman5

I used it all the time. I am going to keep complaining until they get their crap together and fix this. Why take good features out?? Makes absolutely no sense...

Can you help. I'm interested in Lock Screen Message Notifications. Do they show up even when you have the device totally locked i.e. screen is locked AND in its timed out to black state?

addicted2088

"This finally is a native app. No more slow adobe AIR." Hah, I don't own a BB10 phone, but whenever I tried the Z10 out in the shops, I wondered why the settings app is laggy in an otherwise smooth OS. Now I know, quite odd they didn't make something like the settings native from the start.

P.S.: waiting for a cheaper full touch BB10 phone before buying.

xweb10

^ This. I cannot believe settings in not native to this point. Is this the only non-native system app?

poiznberry

The whole f*cking phone feels non-native... sigh.

Jtaylor1986

I don't think you are going to find a lot of agreement with that statement.

poiznberry

Haha, Im not looking for agreement, Im just exposing my feeling about how things going on... SEVEN months since launched.

Open your mind kid, others opinion may differ from yours. If your fanatism wont let you accept the fact this phone was released on an very early and inmature stage, it's not my fault. The fact is that more than six months has passed and we're still here trying "new" stuff which supposedly should be come right out of the box.

6 months compared to iOS' or Android's 5-6 years. Yeah, great point man. SMH

What a loser's answer man!
You're a mediocre customer, sorry. Justify your mistake with others mistakes doesnt make you smarter, it makes you the dumbest.
Thanks your monkey minded, brands like this keep flooding the market with unfinished products...

Difficult to understand? Example then:
- Buying a New Expensive car: no ABS/ECS, no Airbags, no MP3/BT/GPS, no CPU...
- 2Peks1Bird mind: ..."Okey dokey, 10 years ago cars didnt have it..."
Retrograd answer ever.
Hello! We-are-living-in-present...You MUST release an up to date product, not pretexts.

SMH.

viobb1

:) it's true what you say, in a close environment like iOS. Not so much in Android. In BB10, just the enthusiasts will try those leaked OSes, and they will report back. That's why BB10 will be eventually a better OS than iOS. Howgh! Z10STL100-1/10.2.0.1047

Posted via CB10

poiznberry

I have no plans on switching to "iworld" in near future, so Idk how iOS environment works (or not).
I was an happy 9700, 9780, 9810, 9900 and 9790 user (enthusiast also) good old times when smartphones brings solutions instead of delays, bugs, lacks, etc which BB10 is offering me right now, btw.
If I ever was an average customer, and have to stand OS10 as it was released, be sure that it wont lasts me just a couple of months.
Off topic: I.E: sideloaded Instagram 4, trying to hide the 2nd icon (the useless one) guess what? No chance to create empty /1 element folder, neither renaming the damn icon... so all I have to do is survive with this "shortcoming" awaiting for a fix on next leak... great.

Is it me or does the dedicated Evernote app not work? Id love to use it. I know its still baked into the Remember app but I'd at least like to try the app on its own. I can sign in but then it takes to me download it via BB World where it then tells me its unavailable for my device. Is there a fix that I don't of?

Its Spade

no need to use app just use remember

Go to accounts and set up your Evernote account there and your notes should reappear inside the Remember app.

No...In accounts it says "It is currently not possible to authenticate your account with the Evernote service. Please try again later."

I'll be waiting for the official release. However, I am curious...

Does the task manager allow you to fully shut down and exit BBM or is it really just a task viewer?

Why would you want to do that?

From my sweet BB10 Neutrino powered Z10 :D

HasKam

Is that your own Mclaren mp4-12c?

Posted via CB10

203

Why would I want to do that... because I don't use BBM and I don't want it constantly running, forcing a data connection, needlessly sucking my battery dry for every minute and second my phone is switched on. Seems simple enough to me. It's a bit like switching the lights off in your house when it's not dark and you're not in the room. I know that's a radical concept for some people but that's the way I do it. Now do you actually know the answer to my question?

BBPandy

I can't say from experience, but I did read someone say that it allows you to kill processes, so it sounds like it does allow you to do that....

We have all heard that with 10.2 we will also have the ability to run headless apps. I not expert in this field, but from what I understand headless apps are apps that can run and perform their tasks in the background without being open all the time. However does this also allow for inter app communication? For example with emoticon apps. Can we call the emoticon app when in BBM to add their emoticons to our msgs without ever leaving the BBM app (obviously provided the app dev does the necessary tweaking to their app). Im particularly interested in the virtual track pad app.For all those who want it, Imagine having the option of having a trackpad in every app which works with text input.!! Would be brilliant.

I've been running the newest leak all weekend and I didn't know MOST of this list. If I had two requests, one would be to make it so that the instant notifications also turned on the lock screen so that I could see the message if the phone is locked. The other would be to make it so that the instant notifications would stay on the screen longer. Right now, it's about 5 seconds and I don't see an option to expand that time.

Otherwise, LOVE this OS!!

My only complain so far is that when restoring my 10.1 backup, the accounts on the hub were all messed up, and somehow none of them allowed me to reconfigure, so I had to reinstall 10.2 again, get my contact list and calendar from my outlook.com accout (still missing BB Protect), and re-download all the apps.
Sadly BlackBerry link do not have the option for a custom restore to specify the restoration of PIM data only. But the guilty is not the OS 10.2, but the crappy BB Link software.
Anyway, this is a very stable release, and hopefully BlackBerry will keep making improvements.

This is the best leak ever. BlackBerry just stepped their game up big time. Thanks Thor.. never doubted you from day one. Unlike those damn trolls and co

10.2 is an amazing update. It's so simple to install the leak.... Everyone can just go ahead and update to it.... I'm wondering if blackberry is going to add any more features when finally releasing

Notcho

Would be nice if on the time shift camera you could keep snapping pictures and it would save the entire frame. Then go back and select your favorite picture from the frame

So headless apps didn't make it into 10.2 after all?

BBPandy

The ability to play headless apps has been here since BB10.1 The issue is Apps that can use this feature. With the 10.2 SDK BBRY is opening up the headless app API (though it will still be limited to approved apps)

This might be minor to some, but it's kind of important to me...any word on EMOJI's!? I'm so sick of seeing those little x'd boxes when someone sends me something.

R Field

Yes they work fully now at least they're all showing up in Blaq and the newest instagram apk conversion for me

parvezjj

Are you able to send Emoji's as well?

waqar sahi

are there audible tones for notifications i.e, sms, emails or other IM while you are on a call???

Damiand

I am going to re-install today. Did it before this last leak and had to revert to 10.1.x

Features I would love to see are;
1. In the phone log when you delete a call it should delete all calls for that contact ( just as it works in OS 7.)
2. Removal or the ability to prevent the saving of local contacts when creating a new contact. Again just as how it works in OS 7
3. Faster synchronization of PM and email with Exchange, just as it works with OS 7. This is a big disappointment, it sometimes take up to 15min to synchronize changes. This is how BIS works and that's why I never used BIS. With BES it was always real time. This is not an active sync issue as iPhone and Android works fine. It is not as fast as BES with OS 7 is but it is much faster than BES 10 with OS 10 is.

Hate that you need an actual Windows PeeCee to install these leaks. Same for beta zone software.

Getting tired of missing functionality and having to install leaks to get missing features. Makes me want to just get an iPhone since it just works.

Also at least in their universe the closes things to leaks are the jailbreak hacks and those run on windows and macs.

Some of these I don't see in my installed version of 10.2 on my Z10STL100-3/10.2.0.1047 .. also looks like I have balance turned on despite not being hooked up to bes but I can't change my profile.

And still since 1999 blackberry refuses or forgets 20 years In a row to include landscape mode for the music player.

Have you heard of car mounts for your cell phone. I'm pretty sure blackberry sells them. It's like releasing a new car without seat belts.

Posted via CB10

Music player landscape mode will be included In 40.1 update coming fall of 2035

I believe that will be in the afternoon. I remember reading in an article somewhere 4 years ago.

Thats ok, BT will cancel in the morning, so he will be free.

BBPandy

But still no improvements to "Bedside Mode"? At the VERY least they should give it the ability to automatically turn on when charging :(

Posted via CB10

olivopuccino

True !
For bedside mode, we need :

1- automatically switch to bedside mode while charging

2- ability to define time slots for bedside mode

3- automatically stop radio while in bedside mode.

Thx BlackBerry !

Other than the Facebook issue (which I'm currently trying to resolve via the forums) I have noticed one other problem.
If you make a call and the is busy, when you press end call it takes an eternity to hang up. Even if you close the app you can still hear the "busy" tone sounding out.

Hello, could anyone tell are there any new languages in OS 10.2?

Can we resize pictures for email?

Why is there an icon for the Hub? We already have the 3 lines at the bottom of the screen that takes you directly to the hub... sounds like BlackBerry are pandering to the "home button crowd"...

I'll end up stick in it in the same folder I put the settings, phone, search, voice control, and camera icons that i don't need.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a settings section in display that you could permanently hide all of those redundant icons?!?

The camera should give the street name of where it was taken. A small but effective feature, in my opinion.

Apart from the red bar on the right for Priority messages, you can select a color for each of your email account and that would appear on the left. Helps distinguishing messages from different accounts.

vgorous

The camera can now be silenced as long as the phone profile is on silent.

Hub allows you to colour code your email accounts giving distinctive coloured bars that sits on the left side.

This is a pretty big update for 10.x. Other platforms would increment the primary number.

Great os but there are still a few bugs

I did but there are a few issues such as not able to use BBM wifi calling.. contacts disappearing, call log not populating, Microsoft active sync not working.

I'm going to reflash... if it doesn't work I will downgrade

Great OS but still need some work

Absolutely amazing, this OS is by far the best BlackBerry OS ever !

I'm a huge fan and BlackBerry owner since 2007, BlackBerry once, BlackBerry always !

The only actual phone which I would buy if there is no BlackBerry anymore is the HTC One in polish silver Edition, but only because of its exterior, I'm not a big fan of Android OS, and Apple ? What is Apple ? Cheers Dude

This made my freakin' Monday!!!! Thank you thank you, a million times thank you. Kinda miss the dark theme in the messages, but it's a small price.

I didn't want to take the plunge, but I said with (I can always reload). This was one of the best move I did with my Z10. It's truly a huge difference. Before when I swipe down and select settings, the screen would go black for a couple of seconds, now it's swipe down select settings and boom it's there. Super fast.

Pls help me. I can't find wiifi direct

Posted via CB10

buckwylder

There is no obvious "turn on wifi direct" setting. As usual, it still just runs in the background.

Apparently wifi direct was supposed to be changed to make it more evident to users that it's an available "feature".

Really good thing I checked wlmy sentence because I originally tried telling ya'll how:

"it still just 'rubs' in the background"

Good catch on my part, I don't want wifi direct rubbing anything, foreground or background. No rubbing.

Okay in done.

To use wifi direct just delect an item to share, a photo for example, and the last option will be wifi direct

Because hi have a poor english i write this in spanish sorry guys so there it is: Instalé la nueva actualización y esta increible pero despues de un fin de semana en mi Z10 he descubierto algunos problemas, sobre todo de conectividad. Estos problemas incluyen dificultad de transición entre la antena 3G y 2G, cosa que hago mucho debido a la diferencia que hay en la duración de la bateria, la opción de wifi router esta completamente inservible y no se me activa, las ventanas activas de mensajes no funcionaron para nada. A pesar de estas dificultades, el OS 10.2.0.1047 esta muy bien, pero estos problemas me han hecho volver a la versión anterior, a la espera de que esta nueva actualización se oficial. Greetings!!

atineo

Yo tuve algunos problemas tanto de conectividad como de funcionamiento, finalmente decidí realizar un security wipe y todo funciona excelente. Lamentablemente haz vuelto a la versión anterior, hubieras intentado a ver que tal te va.

buckwylder

I've learned that I simply cannot type nearly as good on a virtual keyboard. As evidenced by my last post, full of errors. LoL.

Love the BlackBerry virtual keyboard, don't get me wrong, but I got so used to the Q10's physical keyboard hotness and it has me hooked.
