    Don't use if you are in China or Indonesia or otherwise carrier bound (ask with your PRD if uncertain).
    As always, use at your own risk and let me know if you have any questions.

    As always, wipe and no/wipe included. I have optimized the shell scripts for mac users to where i believe they should have no issues but let me know if you have problems.

    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). I have made some tweaks to the shell scripts to hopefully eliminate any issues for mac users. If you have issues, replace the bin/darwin and bin/linux with full platform tools.

    As mentioned in the ABO build thread, this ABP242 build actually allows Google Pay to work on my NA Key2. Thank you.

    Guess not many have upgraded since no comments as to what is new and what works or does not work.

    @jcrutchvt2010 given we are hearing that this update fix the notoriously long awaited keyboard bug fix I am contemplating loading it on my PRD-63825-003 (NA Ver.)

    Will it load safely on this variant in your opinion?

    Is there anyway to strip it once T-Mobile starts pushing those out, get it OTA and put the device back in sync?

    Yes it should be fine on 003 I think that's just black edition while 002 is silver. I'd imagine 002 and 003 will get this same build but if it doesn't you can autoload to whatever version they get. I'm on 002 myself (T-mobile).

    Yes! I have a BE so that make sense.

    How about striping it back to the older version once T Mobile starts rolling those bad boys OTA in order to get back in sync. Is that doable?

    I am not one to autoload; in this case though I am eager to see what effect this update has on the keyboard behavior.

    Without using an autoloader and until there is an official upgrade tool released there wouldn't be a way to go back to a previous version.

    I am hearing this the Convenience Key functionality is changing based on this.

    Anyone can report a change with this build?

    So I couldn't simply autoload the previous version (downgrade), much like I would autoload this one. Correct?

    Basically what your saying is if I autoload this version I will get out of sync forever. Am I understanding you correctly?

    If you load a version that your device won't otherwise get, just load the next autoloader that it does. No sweat.

    Oh I see now. Let me get this straight for my own sake though:

    I autoload this version, at some point it starts shipping OTA at which time my device will become insync and the next OTA will be delivered regularly without having to do anything.

    Yes?

    No worries!

    Quick question: do I need to enable Developer Options + enable USB debugging?

    Nope.

    Just start the autoloader script and connect your phone while in FastBoot mode (hold volume down and power keys until in FastBoot). Use the NoWipe version if you don't want to wipe it.

    FYI: Make sure to remove your device password first.

    1. Do I need to select anything from the BootLoader menu

    a. Display barcodes
    b. Bootup device
    c. Reboot into fastboot
    d. Turn off the device

    2. While not selecting any of the above and typing flashall.bat I received the screenshot below.

    3. At what point do I select wipe / no wipe?

    4. I am also getting a "USB Device Not Recognized" from my Win 10 PC. Assuming I need a driver.
