This is a continuation of this topic

http://my-symbian.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=400691&sid=bb8511e5c741a87 61ed43efbe7499da1#400691

which was about issues as BB10 is no longer supported. This is continued here in order not to pollute the Sailfish forum with BB10 specific topics.

Since I updated my Passport to 10.3.3 (which was many months ago) I can't recollect a single site that would give me any kind of certificate or encryption problems (which indeed was sometimes the case on 10.3.2).


Yes, I have flashed 10.3.3 on an old decommissioned Z10 and I don't see the same problems with the browser certificate there. I have not yet received the 10.3.3 update on my Passport. Blackberry claims they have issues with the 10.3.3 update and that is why I'm holding back with this update. Also using an autoloader on the Passport wipes everything you have stored, pictures, contacts, everything.

If you mess up, you cannot downgrade to 10.3.2 again for some reason.

So I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do. My Passport works fine except browser issues and I don't want to mess it up and I have a lot of stored files on it too.

In 10.3.3 they made a lot of improvements to the browser, including its encryption and certificate support. Prior to 10.3.3, the browser was stubbornly refusing access to some websites. Some of them could be whitelisted by the user and then it would open them, but some just wouldn't be opened at all. Since 10.3.3 this problem is gone, I haven't encountered it even once.

I got 10.3.3 update on my Passport many months ago. And then a few days later I got another update fixing some issues. Since then I haven't encountered any problems. My Passport's been working perfectly fine on 10.3.3 for more than half a year now.

I don't think that still waiting for the update makes any sense. Despite promises that updates would be served directly, BlackBerry never changed it and they are still dependant on network operator approval. As you probably can imagine, network operators no longer give a damn about testing and approving firmware updates for BB10 phones, so there are poor chances that it'll ever come.

As I mentioned, I got 10.3.3 for my Passport the day it came out, but I never got it for my Z10. As 10.3.3 worked great on my Passport, I got tired of waiting for it to come for my Z10 and I downloaded and flashed it myself. It took a few minutes and since then I can enjoy 10.3.3 on my Z10 too.

So trust me that it works perfectly fine (especially on the Passport which is much faster than the Z10) and don't waste time waiting for it anymore as it may never come. More than six months of using it on my Passport is more than enough for me to ASSURE you that it works just great.

Right, you can't go back to 10.3.2, but there's just no reason to ever do it.

You don't have to use the autoloader if you want to keep all your contents and settings. There are several "non-destructive" ways to update the OS without losing anything (e.g. using Sachesi). This is done in exactly the same way as the OTA update you normally get, the only difference is that you need to manually download the update files to your PC and then they are sent to the phone from your computer rather than directly from BlackBerry servers, but the actual update process on the device is done the very same way as via OTA, so the result is IDENTICAL as if it was the official OTA update.

Files needed to do such non-destructive update can either be downloaded to your computer from BlackBerry server (let me know your Passport version - e.g. SQW100-1 - and I'll give you direct links to the files), or can be extracted from the autoloader executable. Then you just place them all (radio, core OS, debrick/apps) in a folder and then drag&drop the folder into Sachesi and it automatically does all the rest.

If you need detailed instructions on how to do it, let me know. It's very simple and I updated the OS on my BB10 phones this way many times, as I never bothered to wait for OTA updates to arrive when leaked versions were already available.
