    I need your help please. I need the latest OS for my Q10. The present one 10.2.1.2102 keep re-booting and slows down during multitasking and most times it goes off on its own especially during calls. Kindly assist guys. Send me a link to download the latest OS because the latter OS is problematic

    If you haven't installed a leak before, be sure to read the instructions carefully. Here are my suggested instructions and a couple of links to more detailed instructions:
    To install follow these simple steps.

    Preliminary notes:
    Generally the file you download is a zip file that you can open using the free 7-Zip software 7-Zip. The built in unzipper on a PC wont do it.
    These instructions are for PCs, I don't believe that you can use this method on a MAC. Some people don't restore but re-set everything up from scratch. I personally have not had a problem restoring.
    Do not have your BB connected to the PC via a USB hub. The USB cable must connect your BB directly to the PC.


    1. Download the correct zip file for your make and model of BB
    2. extract the autoloader.exe file
    3. Backup your BB10 using BBLink. This is necessary because the autoloader will wipe all the data and settings on your device. Note it will not touch data on your SD Card.
    4. Close BBLink. Keep your PC connected to the BB10
    5. Start the autoloader .exe file. This will load the new version of the OS
    6. Go through the initialization process (don't bother to sign into BB unless you don't plan to do a security wipe in step 7). There is a two-step tutorial at the end that you cannot bypass.
    7. Do a security wipe of the phone by going to Settings/Security and Privacy/Security Wipe (this takes about 20 minutes or so). This is a recommended but not required step, its purpose is to clean any fragments of older OS or other software left on the phone.
    8. Repeat step 6, signing into BB this time (omit if no security wipe done).
    9. Restore from BBLink. I recommend that you do not do a full restore but restore settings and media first, then restore applications data
    10. You will have to reinput passwords for e-mail, linked in, facebook etc and redo bluetooth connections (don't know why it doesn't save them).

    You now have the latest software. It takes about 24 hours for the OS to settle down, re-index things etc. but then you will find you have a much better, smoother running machine with more functionality and better battery life.

    I find it good, faster, better battery life, but I am not a heavy user. As far as the difference, there whole threads about that in the leaks forum, best to check them out.
