    Looks like BB has found a solution for the adopted PRIVs.
    Today, I've got notification for an update, not from ATT, it was pushed from BB.
    I installed it, and build no. is AAG853; not an ATT build#, but the rest of the world update.
    All references to ATT have disappeared, all ATT apps I have disabled are now gone (I am with Bell in Canada).
    Great fix BlackBerry, cheers!

    Would you mind running getprop? Download a terminal app (like this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...terialterminal), open it and type:

    Code:
    getprop | grep venice
    and post what you get for ro.boot.binfo.name, ro.build.fingerprint and ro.product.name.

    It looks like BlackBerry cooked up a special AAG853 AT&T build.

    So... how does that work? There still are ATTs, and there are ex ATTs. Does the patch/upgrade discriminate by SIM, IMEI, or else?
    The patch obviously came in the Sep. autoloader that I installed, the check for updates command had a different message than before.
    The unit is still obviously an ATT, but customized...

    I'm guessing IMEI, since BlackBerry probably itemized all of the devices they shipped to third-party resellers. Since the variant is unchanged I'm assuming BlackBerry either would distribute special autoloaders in the future, or one would have to use the AT&T loader to reload.

    As for the build itself, the differences between regular and carrier AAG853 all lie (I think) in the OEM partition; the partition that contains carrier settings, splash screens, ringtones and crapware. I know the only difference in the files within the common and T-Mobile autoloaders is the OEM image file, the rest is byte by byte identical. BlackBerry probably did the same thing here, with whatever voodoo they needed to get a clean OEM partition onto an AT&T Priv.

    Could it be because the AT&T modifications in 873 which caused issues with reception, they just decided to push 853 to everyone?

    Curiously, what happens if you remove your sim and try to do an update over wifi?

    It was just pushed; after I got the notice I launched the ATT updater and it said the software on the phone is up to date.
