A few weeks back RIM shared some cool animated avatars showing the countdown to BlackBerry 10 when it was 10 weeks. Now that it is at 6 weeks one of our long time tipsters shared with us two updated animated avatars you can use with a 6 week count. Let us know if you spot more! Hopefully we can score 5 week ones shortly.
Below you will find the instructions provided by RIM before. Keep in mind you can also do this with the BlackBerry browser.
To change your BBM Display Picture to this animated avatar:
1. Right-click on the avatar of your choice and select “Save picture as” to save it to your computer.
2. Email the file to the email address associated with your BlackBerry smartphone.
3. Open the image on your BlackBerry smartphone.
4. Press the menu button to “Download Attachment”.
5. In BBM, set the new file as your profile picture.
