Well for any of you that have a BlackBerry Z10 STL100-2, STL100-3, or STL100-4 here’s a little something to keep you busy, the BerryLeaks team has just leaked OS This OS has been tested and found to only work with the radio file which has been included in the autoloader making the loading process the same as before.

Just a reminder, this is only for the Z10 devices listed above.

The following is a list of defects or general notices that the BerryLeaks team found:
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
Solution: none

Issue: No Facebook check-ins for some people
Solution: Do not restore setting from last backup.

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) F

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”
Solution: None

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: 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.

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.

Issue: Unable to send email through Gmail

Download OS through MEGA here.

Also please note that this will again show your PIN in all four corners of the screen as it did in early 10.2 leaks and before you ask there is no way to remove them.

Here’s how you update your BlackBerry 10 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.
