Re: how to update Q5 unlock to 10.2.1

The easiest way to update your phone is to wait for the update to arrive from your carrier. Many carriers are slower at testing and evaluating a new OS so you might end up waiting.

Another method is to look online for the version of OS that you seek and to download and install it yourself. There are tutorials in these forums which explain how to load an OS from any carrier worldwide. You can also check out Crackberry for instructions on finding and loading a new OS to your phone.

Just keep in mind that if you load an OS that is not yet offered by your carrier and anything goes wrong, you won't get support from your carrier; you'll have to come here for help.

 

 

I hope that helps you.  :smileyhappy:

Re: how to update Q5 unlock to 10.2.1

If you want the update from a carrier that has already released it, then yes you'll need that carrier's SIM card. That's how your phone identifies from which carrier to search for an update.

However a SIM card from a specific carrier is not necessary when searching for and installing an update from another carrier or when downloading it from the internet.

 

 

Cheers.  :smileyhappy:

Re: how to update Q5 unlock to 10.2.1

I have an unlocked phone. I am trying to update it. It is currently runing on Black Berry OS 10.2.0.424. When I chose to update it, it says that the device is runing on the latest version. Its very very frustrating for me. How can it be the most latest version when 10.2.1 has already been released.

I bought it 10 days ago. I need this update to install android apps.
