Here’s how you update your BlackBerry 10 device with this leaked OS.

  • Backup your BlackBerry 10 device with BlackBerry Link (the autoloader will wipe your device).
  • Close BlackBerry Link.
  • Download autoloader OS.
  • Turn off the device.
  • Run autoloader.exe (windows Vista 7 and 8 run as admin).
  • When “connecting to Bootrom” appears on system connect your BlackBerry 10 to PC and turn on device.
  • Wait for process to finish and phone to reboot.
  • The update will wipe your device, so you can either restore all the info from your backup through BlackBerry Link or just start fresh if you want.

As always make sure to backup your device before updating to the newest release just to be safe. Also remember BlackBerry Empire is not responsible for anything that may go wrong during the update process.

Let us know if you come across any new findings!

    I was also stuck on the checking for software updates page for awhile. I had to install the OS again and then when going thru the first few pages I didn’t log in to BBM. I waited till I was all the way thru.

    HELP: Stuck on “Software Update” Checking for updates startup screen, What should I do to pass the startup screen?

  3. John M. author says

    @ronyscompaeim. you are getting that error because the radio file does not work the the Z10 STL100-2. That file hasn’t leaked yet. You will need to roll back to a different leak that has a working radio or you can load a radio from one of the other 10.2.1.xxx builds that was for your device but even if you do that you will have no phone calls available. I recommend to roll back to a 10.2.0.xxxx builds till this latest OS has a leak for your device.

  4. John M. author says

    Like I said I had the same issue so I had to load the autoloader again and this time as I was going thru the initial setup I didn’t sign in to BBM. I jist waited till it went thru everything and signed in later.

  5. John M. author says

    @NottySaint glad to see everything is working out. Let us know if you need help with anything else. Let us know if you find anything that we haven’t talked about yet. This OS has a ton of new things in it.

    You might want to update the thread title. It is NOT available for ALL BlackBerry 10 models;just all variants of the Q10 and the STL 100 Z10 variant

  8. NottySaint author says

    Another issue is with BBM not displaying contact pictures.
    Please help me with a Fix, I have BBM channels as well?

    • John M. author says

      I had the issue but not for that long, but long enough to know they weren’t populating properly. The only thing I ended up doing was doing a hard reboot and then just opened BBM, then closed BBM as normal and then just left it. When I woke up all was well. Hopefully they will return for you as well.

  9. John M. author says

    Sorry NottySaint that issue I haven’t seen an actual true solution too. Hopefully someone else will be able to chime in with a fix. I have had a few people ask about it but besides waiting no one has given me the answer.

    headphone jack not working quite right on z10-stl100-4 verizon w/ Media player can be forced to headset, other audio apps will play through handset speaker only! GRRRRR. Otherwise, so far leak is good. FourSquare notices in the Hub will not launch the foursquare app either. operating this leak after a full restore.

HELP :’[ been a blackberry fan all my life and don’t wanna change to iphone or galaxy

    • author says

      If you can’t access the accounts page, a security wipe of the phone is reportedly known to fix that issue. I’m having the issue myself but not only until after I set everything (apart from Facebook) up. Word is, some APKs (like Viber) is somehow causing the bug. I don’t have Viber installed so it must just be some certain APKs.

      Again, folks, this build is a wild one. I know people that are running it bug free but there are some (myself included) that have come across bugs all around. Be cautious, keep a backup of everything that is important and last but not least, enjoy it. Great things to come in the official 10.2.1!

    Deleting soundcloud app solved the accounts not opening problem for me.
    Still unable to open facebook from hub any solutions?

  16. Joel author says

    This is a great update, but it appears to be quite glitchy. I have it installed on a BB Z10 STL100-3. Looking forward to the next leak with the glitches fixed.

      • Joel author says

        My Facebook notifications wont open from the hub. I can receive them but this I have to go into the FB app in order to actually see them. It’s randomly restarted on me a few times since installing it the other day, and last night the keyboard was acting up and I had to restart to fix it. Even so this is great leak and the new features outweigh any glitches I’m currently experiencing, I’ll just have to watch closely for the next leak.

    video is working, but cant upload pics – give an error “Unable to download file” – does anyone know if there is a way around this?
