    How to use SHA-hash to verify a downloaded BlackBerry powered by Android OS image

    The content of the KB entry isn't as important as what it implies; might there be actual OS images for the Priv somewhere?

    Modified or corrupted downloads of BlackBerry powered by Android operating systems will fail to boot on your device, because your BlackBerry will only run legitimate software.

    You can perform an optional check of the integrity of the BlackBerry powered by Android operating system and loading scripts in your download by computing a hash and validating against the values provided on the BlackBerry.com download page.

    For assistance in a Windows environment:

    Get-FileHash –Path NameOfTheDownloadedFile -Algorithm SHA512
    For more details, please see: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../dn520872.aspx

    For assistance in an OS/X environment:

    shasum –a 512 NameOfTheDownloadedFile
    For more details, please see: https://developer.apple.com/library/.../shasum.1.html

    For assistance in a Linux environment:

    echo –n NameOfTheDownloadedFile | sha512sum
    For more details, please see: sha512sum(1) - Linux manual page
