    Well obviously I'm not that dumb to load a leak. Had a bad experience with them, as some of you know. So I just wanted to know if I load a latest leak, will I be able to update to official 10.3 when it rolls?

    The straight answer is yes. You do not get an OTA install if the OS version of the leak is higher than the official. If the official is lower than the leak you will need to do a manual install. In my hands reverting to an official OS is just about never a good choice. So long as the leak is working my plan is to stay with that higher OS.

    Ahan. Ty for the answer. But tell me why do you prefer leaks? They are non optimized and unsupported. HUB integration is pathetic! I can't open any app from there :/ so I downgraded to 10.2.1 and I'm counting stars as I wait for the official 10.3 :/

    For several years all my phones beginning with a 9000 have run leaks. Only one time was there a real issue and that was easily remedied. My style is to wait for people to test the OS for significant issues and report to the forums. No big issue and on it goes. Many times those leaked OS versions are in the pipeline for providers. Some are later released as official by one provider or another. In most every instance there has been some degree of improvement over the late to arrive official from my provider (ATT).

    Flawless is a pretty interesting concept. Running on the Z30 today is 10.3.1.2073. Smooth overall. No real hitches or issues. Have had one recognized spontaneous reboot. Otherwise the OS is all I ask for. Only one Android app. Very few social apps. The phone is a messaging monster but no games, no FaceBook, minimal Twitter. No other social apps at all.

    You do understand that all of us running leaks are not living with the problems you are listing here, right?

    I have said this to you before, but maybe I wasn't clear. I will try again because I really, really want you to understand.

    If you installed any of the latest leaks, you would have what you deem a "flawless" experience IF you ran an autoloader and DID NOT restore your backup.

    If we're clear so far, I will continue.

    The problem you have is that your device settings are corrupt, and interfere with the operation of 10.3.1. That is why you should not bring those settings to the new OS. This is why you had the problems you listed above. That is why you cannot restore your backup on the new OS.

    I wish you the best of luck, but I do not believe that the official release will be any better for you than the latest leaks.

    Until you are prepared to start clean, you may want to stay on 10.2.1.

    Not really much difference in existing leaks than what some may receive as official... yes back when we first got 10.3 what six or seven months ago it was a real mess.

    But bugs and glitches are just as common in an official release as they are in these higher numbered leaks.

    Maybe... maybe not. It all depends on your carrier and when it is released by them.

    Will T-Mobile be releasing any updates on out of date hardware? Because in this day and age, two year old is pretty much EOL from the carrier's point of view.

    But if you are on a Canadian Carrier.... yes it should be dropping just about any time now.

    You ask minor variations of the same question by starting many new threads. It gets really old after a while. Your stated goal is getting enough posts to attain "CrackBerry Genius" . Are you going about that by being annoying and then acting as if others are the problem? I would say apparently yes. You are in danger of being ingored.

    Nothing wrong with starting threads to seek answers on a public forum- which means the content of the thread will get questioned if some feel the same questions were asked last week or the previous week.

    Since you mentioned them, I commend you to read items 2, 3, and 6 in the Forum Etiquette section.

    I also think your generalization that people who load leaks are dumb is more insulting than being confused for someone who followed the exact same posting patterns in the past.

    Considering that those who load leaks are looking and thinking outside the box and have to identify and solve problems your calling them dumb tells me a lot about you. Grow up.
