    OK.... because sharing is caring, I thought all of you out there may want to have this. Someone sent this to me and I thought about all of you in the community.... (now I need help too... please tell me why pics I post in BBM are NOT showing up in my HUB. All group messages are turned on, etc).

    Newer Z10 were shipped with 10.0.10.261.

    There is currently no official download link, only available via OTA.

    I have a link for the leak version of 261 if you want to try. It has been tested on Z10, but remember DWYOR & don't forget to backup your data.

    Link: https://mega.co.nz/#!4g1xVaoY!UACTRn...Bak0dMOrwvgRPM
    Download, Unzip. Read this info on how to load the OS to your Z10:
    1. Turn off your BlackBerry.
    2. Run the file Autoload.10.0.10.261.0x8400240a.0x8500240a.0x87002 40a.exe
    3. When prompt shows “Connecting to Bootrom”, connect your Z10 to your computer and turn it on.
    4. If you have a password set on your device, type your password when prompted.
    5. After your device restarts, complete the set up wizard.

    As soon as someone else confirms this is good to go, I'll give it a shot.

    Has anyone on Bell/telus received this update officially?

    Are there any release notes for this? If the fixes don't seem major I don't want to risk the update and possibly brick my phone, would rather wait for official rogers ota.

    I think this is for dev alphas, not z10.

    From the comments:
    Just an FYI: tried this on a Z10 from Telus and now I’m stuck with a screen that says “Incompatible Radio Image Loaded on Device” and can’t reload so I don’t think this works for it (im)patiently awaiting the official OS .exe"

    Sounds sketchy...

    Wow, really. Safari 6.0.2 is an outdated browser. I automatically don't trust the download source, if they require Chrome and only chrome.

    Nobody wants to be first! LOL Too funny.

    I think the good folks at Crackberry (aka Kevin) should take the new OREO Z10 and give her a go!

    "Incompatible Radio Image Loaded on Device" probably because Rogers runs on different network compared to Telus and Bell

    If it works it will also completely wipe your device.

    Correct one for Qualcomm based Z10 (3 LTE derivatives) is Autoload.10.0.10.261.0x8400240a.0x8500240a.0x87002 40a.exe

    I'm going to wait for others to test this out, LOL.
    I did msg the person who wrote the autoloader (who i've msged several times) to see whether it's safe to do this on the Z10
    I'm still waiting on the reply
