    Here is the August patch for the KEY².

    As usual, this is NOT for Chinese, Russian, or Indian devices. Also, this will not work on any of the new EU variants that have a PRD ending in -5xx. Sorry, but only the common signatures are available.

    Remove device PIN/password, boot to bootloader screen, and run either flashall or flashallnowipe as per your preference.

    The ABX648 version has a big problem with battery drain. In addition, it has a lot of errors when typing Vietnamese, so i just hope to receive the patch.

    Yes it will work.

    You download to PC, unzip it, plug in your device (which is in fastboot mode), and run the batch file of your choice.

    To get into fastboot, turn off the phone. Then turn it back on by holding the power button and the down volume button. You will see a text menu. Stay there.

    Don't forget to remove your device password first.

    The error of typing come from BlackBerry Keyboard, not from the patch.

    When autoloader is executed on Mac, the blue lamp blinks and does not start.
    The workaround is to fix Sh.
    After that, it will start by modifying it.
    (Both flashall.sh and flashallnowipe.sh)



    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT oem switch-bootchain: $ {slot}
    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT reboot bootloader
    sleep 10
    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT flash bootsig $ IMG / boot.img.sig
    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT flash recoverysig $ IMG / recovery.img.sig



    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT flash system $ IMG / system.img
    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT flash oem $ IMG / oem _ $ {read_dev} .img
    $ BIN / $ FASTBOOT reboot

    Thank you. I will make those changes going forward. I often consider removing the Mac scripts because I don't have one to test them on.

    Hello guys
    Sorry if my English is not good to express.
    I wonder if my K2 BBF100-6 (PRD63828-024) runs this ACB168 autoloader, can I still get updates via OTA in the future or will I always have to run autoloaders?
    Thank you

    If your variant otherwise gets this OS on its own, then you will still remain in sync.

    Hi Guys

    Sorry to ask dumb question. First time I'm trying to use autoloader and I can't to seem to find any step by step guide.

    My understanding of the steps are:
    1. Download and unzip - autoloader (2GB)
    2. Connect Key2 to a computer
    3. Initiate Bootloader Menu
    4. Select option 3 - Reboot into fastboot (comes back to the original menu)
    5. Run with admin privileges - batch file - flashall.bat

    I've run that and my screen show the pic below....I can terminate the batch and also I tried to reboot to the fastboot nothing happened. Am I missing something?

    I've tried couple options and nothing is happening.

    By inspection of the flashall.bat it has 3 loops to check device properties and after that complete it should prompt with Y/N question to continue.

    I'm still getting stuck on screen 'Please switch to fastboot mode by holding...'

    Any ideas?

    Ignore my messages above. I've resolved this issue.

    I tried to use work laptop and something must be blocking the script.
    Worked straight away with my home pc.
