Some developers seem to have had issues with updating their BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha to the latest OS version this week. RIM has been working diligently on this issue and and it looks like they may have hit on what exactly is causing the issue. This thread in the BlackBerry support forum has been very informative and is highly recommended reading if you are struggling with the update. It essentially has you removing registry keys that may be pointing to the incorrect beta server. (Thanks for the heads up Peter) Namely:
- Close Desktop Manger
- Navigate to the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Research In Motion\AppLoader
- Delete the SLSURL entry
- Delete the WebSLURL entry.
- Start up Desktop Manager
- Note: for 64-Bit windows it is at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Research In Motion\AppLoader
Kudos to all the devs and RIM for figuring this one out. Also worth noting is that RIM has also put out a new version of Desktop Manager for Mac for developers with the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha. This version allows developers to update their Dev Alpha from a Mac. Check out the details here.
