Update: I’ve received confirmation that this is the gold version which will be pushed to carriers
Update 2 (2013-10-05): Carriers have refused this release and we’ll have to wait another week for the gold release. We’ve seen 1779 floating around, so that might be it. I’ll believe it when I start seeing it on production servers…
Now that the Z30 has been released and that we’re getting closer to an official launch of OS 10.2 on all devices, we’re starting to see leaks which can be installed on any BlackBerry 10 device.
Version 1767 doesn’t add any new features, but it contains the same improvements seen in the recent 17xx leaks, so you’ll get to choose between the bright and dark theme for SMS, Contacts, Calendar and BBM and you’ll also gain the ability to hide the Android navigation bar per app.
Also, the recently released BlackBerry Link 1.2 seems to improve backup/restore speed, so the BerryLeaks team recommends you upgrade.
WARNING: I recommend you do a hard reset after having restored your data. To do a hard reset, just press and hold “Volume Up” and “Volume Down” at the same time until you see the BlackBerry logo appear on your screen (the screen will first go dark first).
