    I'm looking to downgrade from 10.3.2.2876 OS to 10.3.2.2813 in order to fix a documented Android apk uninstall issue. I have a Leap STR100-2. I used Sachesi to locate winchester.factory_sfi.desktop-10.3.2.2813-nto+armle-v7+signed.bar. Sachesi warned it was not a perfect match but I installed anyway. It completed with success and the device went through the motions of installing but after reboot I still had 10.3.2.2876 installed with all my apps and data (I expected a factory reset). Any idea where I can get the proper bar for my device, I've spent a lot of time searching already.

    Why do all that when all you needed to do was update your Android runtime from Blackberry world?

    Unable to uninstall Android applications after updating to BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3.2
    To be fair, BB are at fault for leaving things in such a poor state for MONTHS.

    It's not obvious to non-CB readers that you need to obtain an updated Android runtime ... and it shouldn't be necessary, if BB really did 'actively support' BB10, which we now know to be bordering dangerously on a bold-faced lie.

    Yes. The whole thing was handled atrociously. 10.3.2.2876 was released in December, and the fix never came until February. They should have made a world wide update that included the new Runtime.

    Updating android rt sounds good to me. Hopefully it will solve all the weirdness happening with android apps... constant updates, updating apps I previously uninstalled, not able to delete, etc... Thanks for the help.

    Winchester isn't for the STR100-2, it's only for the STL100-1 Z10. You would have wanted qc8960.factory_sfi-10.3.2.2813-nto+armle-v7+signed.bar. Still, go with the runtime update.
