As far as we can tell the iconRegistered() signal as defined in
never gets emitted.
The icons seem to be registerd + profile box can display them, but that may be more by luck than judgement.
The result of the connect() is validated + claims the connect() worked all ok.
However presumably requestRegisterIcon() is an async operation + may not have completed bt the time the function call returns - hence the requirement to have a signal/slot in the first place - so how can we be sure the icon has been registerd before attempting to use it....

I've been able to reproduce this (iconRegistered signal not fired) and have notified our internal development team. Looks like a bug.
I've logged it in Issue Tracker so you can track the progress of the fix.

Any word on this? I cannot update the BBM ProfileBox with an icon due to this bug.

This has been fixed internally and should be working in our next release.

Thanks! I guess there won't be a new release before launch, so can I still get qualified as "Built for BlackBerry" if I just use a textual BBM ProfileBox for now?

You guess wrong. But yes, you don't need to use an icon to qualify with BBM integration.

Soooo... was this actually fixed in 10.0? I can't get it to work either with a 68x68 icon, 12kb.
bool success = m_profileBox->requestRegisterIcon(iconId, bb:latform::bbm::ImageType:ng, imageData);
qDebug() << "BBM register icon success? " << path << success;
BBM register icon success? "/accounts/1000/appdata/com.motek.coloridfree.test
This guy seems to have the same problem too:

Two answer my own question.. it mostly works in 10.0. Just don't use a long filename, keep it DOS style 8.3 and that should work for sure. Long names like from Scoreloop awards don't work for me.
