    Well, it works for me for a Z30. I have not tested for a Q10.

    You will get an error message on the loader screen, but you will still get OS 10.3.1 (just no apps, just the base OS). With that, you can enter your new BB ID and then upgrade to the latest version again.

    It worked for me! On Q10...!!

    The previous owner had activated the protection via BBProtect, and I did not know that.
    So I made a normal wipe, the next re-initialization I was asked the account (BBID) with which the device was registered to BBProtect, because the anti-theft system was active.

    I contacted the previous owner asking to disable the device from protetc.blackberry.com ... bad choice!
    The device was not more accessible, even by entering the correct BBID!

    The correct procedure would have been to remove the protect BEFORE making a wipe!
    While doing as i did, the device was to be considered "bricked".

    I tried to load OS 10.3.1 through autoloader, with negative results, it loaded the ROM but when at 100% appeared the message "This OS version is blocked from device".

    The device was "bricked" with red flashing light, impossible to get it started.

    I followed this guide (https://www.basics.net/2016/04/19/bl...omment-page-1/) , in order:

    reloading v10.3.2.2876 -> Q10_10.3.02.2876_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5.exe
    immediately after
    10.3.1.997 -> Autoload-SQN100-1-10.3.1.997.exe

    Again the installation process gave error "This OS Version ..." but the OS has started, and it was no longer required BBID to bypass the anti-theft protection

    Now im doing OS update, in any case, I doubt I'll be able to reactivate protect ... we'll see

    GOOD!
    After entire process of flashing ROMs described, the system has notified an OS Update (1.7gb).

    Then i notice that the protect was correctly acitved with MY BBID.

    WOW! ;-)

    I bought a preowned blackberry classic today and the person who sold the phone did not disable anti-theft protection. Is it possible to remove the protection myself?

    The method described by travis_23 works as long as you haven't upgraded to 10.3.3. Otherwise, you are out of luck as far as I know.

    It's weird that up till now blackberry anti theft can't be bypassed on OS 10.3.3...I believe if those capable hands on hacking or cracking it have tried to get a way around it for the sake of the thousands who have lost money on purchasing a pre used device since 2015-till date there would have been a way out. There is no software or security that can't be cracked and this anti theft is no different

    Unfortunately you are wrong there.
    The anti-theft feature has proven to be unhackable just as the Priv is unrootable.
    Many have tried and gave up trying as they weren't getting anywhere with it.

    Those capable hands belong to people who don't care about BB10.

    Actually, BlackBerry protect can be bypassed even on OS 10.3.3. I know because I did it a couple of hours ago.

    My brother somehow deleted his old BlackBerry Id which he used to setup his Z3. Then he got this weird thought that I shhould help him upgrade the phone. Since I use an android phone, I downloaded the 10.3.3 autoloader and after installing it, the phone started asking for the BB ID that was used to set up the phone.

    After a lot of digging, I read some posts online about how to disbale anti theft and I was crazy enough to try it out.

    1. Download the developer version of OS 10.3.1 from here BlackBerry 10 Autoloaders - BlackBerry Developer

    2. Install the OS on your device.

    Now, the phone is going to brick because downgrading to a lower OS is not allowed. So if the phone gets stuck at the bootscreen, it means the OS 10.3.1 is now. It also means the phone at this point has no anti theft feature yet.

    3. Install the BB 10.3.3 OS on the same phone. By the time the phone boots for the first time, anti theft protection is gone
