DevAlphaB updates itself now?

What's with the DevAlphaB self updates (without a Sim card too)? Is that a new feature and it appears to be a full OS with Apps etc? I wish that was the case with the production models too.

Will that be available on 10.3 too?

Re: DevAlphaB updates itself now?

This is a new feature included with BlackBerry OS 10.2.1.  You can toggle this setting by going to Settings, Software Updates and then Options.


This applies to both the BlackBerry Dev Alpha and BlackBerry 10 Smartphones.

Re: DevAlphaB updates itself now?

If you've inserted a SIM card, that could pull specific OS from BB servers. Not too sure though, I have a Dev C that never gets updates - I have to manually update.
