Software Release versus OS Version

Greetings,

 

In Link, the Software Release and OS Version for my PlayBook are 2.1.0.1917. For the Z10, however, the Software Release is 10.2.1.2977, and the OS Version is 10.2.1.3247. So, what's the difference between Software Release and OS Version?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Re: Software Release versus OS Version

The software release is everything including the OS, apps radio file etc. It's a package of programs basically and includes the OS; so the versions don't match as they are slightly different things.

When we say what version are you running - we usually want to know the OS version as that's what you get when you type in "myver" on the BlackBerry keyboard.

Hope that clears it up a bit.
