    Autoloader for testing. ABH542 Sept Patch. Don't use if you are in China (even though this a chinese build, use the upgrade tool). Tested and working on my T-Mobile Key2. Don't recommend the no-wipe script but you can try if you desire. As always, use at your own risk and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! This is tested and working on PRD-63825-002 so should work on all non-china devices (use upgrade tool if China)

    Link: https://mega.nz/#!6zYyUKoZ!Z2NLK_E9r...1QKcbf8kU2JS4Q

    As always, wipe and no/wipe included.

    Instructions for first-time flashers:

    Remove any screen lock from your device first.
    Download the zip file in the OP. Extract it. Turn off your phone. Press and hold power and volume down until you see the blackberry bootloader screen. Plug in your phone to your computer. Open a command prompt in the folder you extracted the downloaded file (In the folder, hold ctl, shift, then right click and you should see "open command prompt (or powershell) window from here). Then type flashall.bat and press enter.

    This is all presuming you are using Windows. This will do a wipe (if you selected wipe script) and install the new version. Let me know if you have any questions. If you are on a mac/linux run the .sh scripts in terminal (make sure you are running as admin and again that your screen lock passwords are completely removed).

    updated as always from the branch but no noticeable difference yet but i don't scrutinize the camera too much. no decline in performance for sure.

    I finally have the smart lock features showing. On that ABG build it just showed a blank screen.

    So far really smooth. Had a slight issue with textra resetting apn for mms. Just a heads up in case someone's mms isnt working. Hopefully an isolated case with me only.

    Downloading now, was testing the ABG700 and had a similar issue with the google smart lock as mentioned by @deezy87. Can anybody confirm if the phone app has been updated with the new google material theme design? Most of the other google apps have been updated but we don't have the option to update the phone app (I think the phone app on my key2 launches too slow - is it just me?)

    I use Piktures premium.

    Check your messages.


    *edit*

    The phone app seems to have gotten a new look on Oreo. I, personally haven't had any issues with the phone app.

    Besides SmartLocks being there consistently, the Fingerprint scanner works SO MUCH BETTER!! Absolutely instant.

    Still feels the usual unresponsive to me compared to the KEYone. Google Pay was borked with this one for me due it being an non-certified build for my Amazon unlocked model. Switching back to ABG706.

    Had an issue with the smart lock feature again, but it seem to be the "Google Beta" App! Once I returned to the non-beta Google App, smart lock return to normal. I can say this version also feels much smoother compared to ABG706 (after two days of use)

    so tried it for a week, reverting back to ABG706 for 2 reasons -- 1 google pay and 2 since i am with a carrier that doesn't officially support blackberry, the built-in apn settings are incorrect and i cant receive mms.

    I just checked, and I am in the same boat. Waiting for Rogers to post a fūckin patch. We'll probably see an October patch, I hope

    Are you using the "Google Beta" App? I had a similar issue and after leaving the Google beta App testing & returning to the stable version of the google app & the smart lock started working as normal.

    Try rebooting your phone - that had worked for me after leaving the beta program
