    Still in the pipe! Sometimes the integrations we have to make to patch a month's vulnerabilities cause unexpected surprizes that we have to correct. You might remember DTEK50 being a few weeks late for a while over December/January, and now it's right back on schedule -- it's actually ahead of all the others, including its own planned schedule.

    The team is pushing. We have everyone engaged to reduce the usual lag with getting approvals and such when it's ready, so as soon as it's good to go we'll whip it out the door right away.

    My guess is the 27th if it comes this month. There was some keyone giveaway thing and at the bottom it said rumor was 27th release date(for the keyone).

    Thx Bla1ze.

    I wonder why BlackBerry does not communicate this in public and some days earlier. Would have stopped a lot of speculation.

    I have feeling that we'll get more delays for future security patches. I hope I am wrong.

    It is a complicated thing to keep Android secure. You make a fix which can surprisingly cause issues elsewhere. I am sure it is challenging, frustrating, and rewarding all at the same time. Plus the aggravation of BlackDroid mavens complaining.

    Thanks for the quote. Really appreciate it. I don't spend time in the beta zone so would never have seen it I know Blackberry wouldn't post on their blog site 'we are having problems with software, it's going to be late' lol

    But it's nice to at least know in the forums what's happening and if things are on their way. It's never nice just having silence and letting our imagination run rampant.

    The DTEK50 forum was on its way to an uproar hahaha.

    But that's every OS. Just about every Windows major release breaks something, and I remember last year an IOS update bricked some folks' phones. It's just impossible to test every hardware and software combination out there. I'm surprised that things don't go even worse most of the time.

    Even BlackBerry had a problem. One of the updates didn't play well with AT&T upgrading ito system of switching LTE towers and I was one of many affected by the dreaded "no service" bug.

    Sometimes later is better. Rather have a clean update rather than on bug ridden.

    Interesting. I asked BlackBerry help and after explaining I have an unlocked PRIV and have always received updates on time they said there is nothing wrong on their end an the issue is completely due to the release cycle of my carrier. I called them out on the BS on the email, no response yet.

    Haha, sorry, should have added some context. I saw some post a little way back saying that maybe the DTEK60 & PRIV were not getting the update because it was being combined with the Nougat update later this month. And the reason the DTEK50 owners got the update is because Nougat was not coming to them. So thats what i mean by
