Hi everyone,

The moment you have been waiting for... A Priv OS autoloader and now a dump of the system files..

I am fairly inexperienced at XDA, but have been around BlackBerry enthusiast forums for years under the name mrfreeze.

I have made this post on CrackBerry forums too, but thought that you all might be able to help out more.

Link to CrackBerry thread: http://forums.crackberry.com/android...ac826-1049300/

*WARNING: THIS CAN BRICK YOUR DEVICE WITH NO FIX AT THIS TIME.*

Only works with this device - ShopBlackBerry STV100-1 (na variant with no subvariant)
OS - AAC826

What I bring you is an OS autoloader for the BlackBerry Priv. My understanding that this is meant for the ShopBlackBerry (possibly Amazon) variant of the Priv only. It checks for has a script in the batch file checks for the variant and subvariant, if these don't match it will error. Removing the check and installing it on a non-supported Priv WILL brick the device, this has been confirmed.

This is destructible load and will wipe all data.

I know for sure it does not work on AT&T Priv STV100-1 and will brick it.

Using the fastboot.exe file I determined a few variant names.

I would like to see what subvariants are for each model. I will create a chart as we get more information.

ATT - The autoloader will not work with this model and will brick the device.

variant - na
subvariant - att

ShopBlackBerry - The autloader will work with this model.

Variant - na
Subvariant - (blank)

I haven't had much time to this point to mess around with the files, but will continue to look through them.

Mega files: https://mega.nz/#!XwwgXKSa!jW5QtNnqh...t3WqOMTKPoBC_4

BlackBerry Android Support Software (Drivers): https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...1570F46266A608

Holding down the power button and volume down key for 30 seconds will take you to the BlackBerry Bootloader menu.

I will continue to update OP as we learn more.

Oh and if you brick your device you are out of luck at this point. So again don't screw around with this unless you know what you are doing or have a money and time to waste.

- Mr. Freeze

Edit: I have now dumped the system files. Have fun!

Here is the link to the system files: https://mega.nz/#!z5AGyaaS!cxVwt_pSC...xX8_-JhCLzuoaU


P.S. Thanks Usman for help procuring this!

This file is the real deal. Please be very careful if you attempt to test loading on your Priv. IT WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE.

Interested in seeing the outcome with this...

This. Be very careful.

Do not edit the batch file to skip the variant check, I figured this out the hard way.

It should work fine on a the proper variant though, which is the ShopBlackBerry unlocked devices.

Don't take this as a definitive answer that the Priv is coming to T-Mobile or Sprint, but I found their boot animations in here.

Also found Verizons, which we know is coming.

Verizon's is an animated boot image without audio. (Old Verizon logo though)
T-Mobile's is a static image and it includes the default T-Mobile ringtone.
Sprint's is an animated boot image without audio.

What do you mean?

If you're asking if this will work with that device, then the answer is no. It is only for the STV100-1 North America with a subvariant of none. Which means it is factory unlocked from ShopBlackBerry or possibly Amazon.

It is something related to BB10. Basically, it's an exe that lets you manually install a version of BB10 to your Blackberry device. They are often used when a version of BB10 is leaked before the updates roll out to phones. I have used them on my Z30 before.
