    Autoloader for testing. ABG706 Sept Patch. Don't use if you are in China. 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!

    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).

    what he said ^. In reality, I've had issues on past devices but I prefer a clean userdata partition and it's a bit unclear what skipping the oem secure wipe does.

    That being said, I haven't heard anyone having issues after using the nowipe so yeah....fine print and the unknown vs. guaranteed clean slate.

    I usually have no time to restore, so decided to go with nowipe (again). For some strange reason, this time the process stopped for the first two attempts at the very beginning, but finally managed to upgrade.

    My most welcome change is that they finally fixed the night mode brightness issue, so switching to night mode no longer alters the brightness setting.

    No, I didn't have the option to enable it or anything. This update shows that there is WiFi calling available.

    You have to turn wifi on while in airplane mode. Hence the name 'wifi' calling. Lol

    Wow yeah, very different icons than my Key2, wish mine said ongoing wifi call. Did you buy it unlocked or via Rogers? I am seeing more and more posts lately stating that if the device is purchased unlocked, then wifi calling will not work. I guess I will go back to the motion

    Just called Rogers about 10 minutes ago and got the WiFi calling set up and good to go.

    After adding 911 information I had to reboot the KEY².

    So after it booted up, put it in airplane mode, turned on WiFi and tested the WiFi calling. To my shock, it actually works!
