    I am not able to update my Priv. The system keeps trying to update and when it fails, it automatically attempts to update again. Its already wasted 3gb + of my mobile data while it attempted to update in my pocket. I need some help/advice on what to do, because I cannot turn my mobile data on until my issue is resolved.

    Luckily for Priv owners the final software update has been distributed in autoloader form as well: https://ca.blackberry.com/content/bl...OS-Reload.html

    Download the right one for your variant and follow the instructions. If you want, you can edit the flashall script inside the autoloader to remove the lines that wipe the phone, so you can update without losing un-backed up data.

    Probably a good idea to grab it and keep it safe somewhere as well, not sure how long they will keep it up.

    Well it's more like just in case you need it to reload the phone, only to find out they pulled the download. Although for almost 2 years I had the phone I never had to, only reloading I did was to move from one to another replacement phone.

    Open the right script for your platform with Notepad/some other text editor. Find the lines mentioning "flash userdata" and "oem securewipe". Delete those two lines and save the script.

    Could these be the lines I'm looking for?

    $BIN/$FASTBOOT flash userdata $IMG/userdata.img
    $BIN/$FASTBOOT flash oem $IMG/oem.img

    Or maybe this one...

    $BIN/fastboot oem securewipe

    Keep that one.

    $BIN/$FASTBOOT flash userdata $IMG/userdata.img
    $BIN/fastboot oem securewipe
    Delete these two.

    If you're on Windows do it in the flashall.bat file, if you're not do it in the flashall.sh file.

    Thanks, I modified the flashll.sh thinking it worked with the .bat file so ended up wiping my device.

    I made the changes you said and since there's no more updates for the priv, I'll be ready next time...

    Thanks
