BlackBerry OS 10.3.1.1779 update now rolling out

BB10-3-1-1779 update

BlackBerry is now rolling out OS version 10.3.1.1779. I am not sure at this time whether this update is available to all BB10 smartphones, but on my Passport, it is an 80MB download.


It is also not clear yet what it fixes or adds. Hopefully, it fixes the screen flickering issue on the Passport since the last update.

Have you gotten a prompt for this update? On what device? Do give us feedback.

  1. I got the update today. It started automatically so I don’t know what’s new. I’m using z10 stl-100-2 on idea network (India)

  2. From Australia…Just downloaded 80mb (x2) tonight. Not sure what they’ve done in this update. I’ve flickered through the settings and all but couldn’t find anything substantial.

  3. Blackberry Z10 is still playing up after latest 10.3.1.1779 update. List of problems. Cant use camera to take a photo. BBVE does not load up. File manager is not working….can’t access anything on device or media card. A complete mess. Battery draining. Battery hot. Cant download apps from Blackberry World. Screen freezes. Same as previous update 10.3.1. Get it sorted as we still have to pay our mobile carrier

  4. Yet to check. but I pray they revert to the previous Louder notification volume on Q10.

  5. Yes, I got the prompt on my Z30, 109Mb. But I still have issues with some apps not connecting to internet,except via WiFi. Especially apps like Amazon appstore, Scoremobile FC, and most android apps. I hope they fix this pretty soon.

  6. Saintmoha,

    That’s an odd one. I wonder what is behind that problem? Keeping fingers crossed for the fix. Cheers.

  7. My classic q20 downloaded it automatically and it is not the same anymore, voice and data connections have gone crazy, a totally useless device now, callers keep dropping after connecting once every 15 times I call, device keep fluctuating from 4g to LTE to E and e also then only emergency calls…it is driving me crazy, called my provider with no use, called blackberry and it is impossible to be able to talk to anybody.,…I am trying now to reverse the update and downgrade, anybody can help?

  8. Mr. Beh,

    Wow. Sorry about your experience. Unfortunately, I am yet to find a way to downgrade on BB10. Hopefully, an official fix or even leaked files to fix it will be available.

  9. This update seems to have messed up with my Passport’s hotspot. It refuses to work at random. When this happens, only a reboot of the phone solves the problem.

    Pretty annoying.

  10. Mr Mo, I just got another update prompt, 10.3.1.1784, 746Mb. Lyk u said, fingers crossed, it’ll hopefully fix my issue. Thanks.

  11. Using Q10 in UAE and got this update just now.. Hopefully there are no issues.. don’t know about the new fixes they made..

  12. I have Z10 in UAE. All my android apps playback of videos (e.g. In IMBb) the video was flickering while the sound was okay. After the update, it’s working well.

  13. Just got the update at 68mb in Nigeria. Currently downloading. The comments above are getting me scared.

  14. Okay. It’s done. The difference is not much from what I can see so far just that there’s Bbm meetings now. Who knows what else is new in it?

  15. I got the update today. It started automatically bbm meeting was added. I’m using z10 (India)

  16. i just got this update on my BB10 but i dnt know what’s new in it??what are the new features?

  17. the update is 83mb in pakistan.only bbm meeting is the addition.nothing else noticed.

  18. the same problem happened to my bb10 when i got the update.hopefully it will be overcome with this new update.

  19. same update came into my notif. (10.3.1.1779) but it’s 1.5GB. What do you think of this?

  20. This particular update sucks battery and keeps my phone steady hot…i don’t gerrit! Like last night i slept with almost 90% and woke up with a battery abt to be drained. And the funny thing is that there was no data subscription on it.. so Biko,.how?????????

  21. !maybe ur settings have been altered by the new update
    Check ur settings and make sure everything is ryt
    If not then u know u need to remove the updates;u need to downgrade

  22. Yo….even I faced same problem….while sleeping I turned off data subscription and next morning battery was almost to zero from 80% charged..

    surprise!!!!!!!surprise!!!!!surprise!!!!
    i kept data on while sleeping and battery was not even drained by 10% of what it was charged before sleep…..

    this is damn annoying…..

    Blackberry Q10 (OS 10.3.1.1565)
    from India

  23. *holds laff*… to other lower os, that’s ambiguous. but jes to put it out there droid is a higher life form (of os)

  24. I have the battery drain issue too. Before the update, my battery life can last for whole day of use. After the update, my battery only last slightly more than half day and the phone getting very hot.

    Any idea how to revert back the previous OS version?

    Thanks.

  25. I just received notice for update, started automatically on my z10 but it’s large though, 1GB.

  26. One major problem that annoys me to the bone is that my phone zooms in anytime I wake or unlock my screen. So I basically have to zoom out at every instance.
    My phone has also become an oven especially when am on a 3G network.
    Finally my keyboard is now so insensitive. At times I feel like am using a physical keyboard.
    Please what can be done to fix it
    Am using a Z10.
