It’s that time again and we’ve got ourselves another leak from the BerryLeaks Team. Once again, this particular release is for all BlackBerry 10 devices (Yes, that includes you STL1-100 users)
Nothing official on what’s significantly updated but as per all updates, we assume this release comes with bug fixes and improvements overall. Remember, BlackBerry Empire nor the BerryLeaks Team is responsible for what you do with your device whilst loading this leak.
Backup, install, restore. You know how it goes. Load it and if you find any interesting updates etc, let us know in the comments below!
Have a read through at the changelog/findings below:
The following is a list of found defects or general notices:
General Notice: This is a full OS including radio file
General Notice: This goes for every leak you load. The first 24 to 48 hours after loading a leaked OS your BB will be very busy settling in, syncing all your information and re-indexing everything that’s on your phone. Because of that it is not uncommon to experience a huge battery drain at first, a high percentage of CPU being used or a battery that gets hot. I repeat, this is not uncommon! It is no reason to get a new battery or a replacement for your phone, it is no reason to be worried. Wait it out and keep a charger nearby.
Issue: Android VM sometimes crashes and reboots the phone
Issue: No Facebook check-ins for some people
Solution: Do not restore from last backup, instead install OS and start fresh (please note: without restore you will lose saved data such as progress in games or data in third party apps like password manager or note-taking apps)
Issue: Restoring data may corrupt contacts database (rare issue, only when restoring from 10.1)
Solution: Do not restore from last backup, instead install OS and start fresh (please note: without restore you will lose saved data such as progress in games or data in third party apps like password manager or note-taking apps) For more info, also read [10.2 Contacts] Serious bug which cripples the device
General Notice: No Wi-Fi Direct for Z
General Notice: Android Runtime is locked on this leak. Those who do not want to use the debug method can download and use the previously leaked Unlocked Android Runtime
Issue: Wifi calling gives error “SIM not detected”
General Notice: BlackBerry Protect stays on after reboot
General Notice: New Gmail login screen
General Notice: Calendar now gives option to show full week or work week
Issue: BBM is not restoring/unable to connect
Solution: Download BlackBerry Channels from Beta Zone and install, should work afterwards
General Notice: A couple of new notification sounds added. Thanks to wu-wei these can be downloaded separately and yes, these do work on every device including STL100-1! You can find them here.
General Notice: Like in previous leaks, the back bar on the bottom of every Android app is still there. This is not a bug, this is by design and it will be present on future leaks as well. For more info, go here
Issue: When receiving busy signal the device is unable to end call (very rare issue, so far only reported on Z on AT&T)
Solution: Reboot will end call as workaround. No solution so far. If issue happens, please post with the template below and include carrier so we can see if this issue is carrier/device related.
