DTEK updates finally rolling out to all devices

by Volker Weber

We have become aware of an issue related to the updating of specific open market versions of DTEK50 in Europe with monthly security patches. The latest software will be available starting the week of October 17th. We are taking steps to ensure that future security updates won’t get caught up in any operating system updates which can cause delays.

- Alex Thurber, SVP BlackBerry Device Sales

Last week it came to our attention that some DTEK50 weren't updating at all. Some were still on the July 05 patch level. We raised this issues with BlackBerry and finally got this answer. I did not like the "starting the week of October 17th" date, because that extends into the indefinite future but I am receiving reports that the DTEK50 sold through other outlets than ShopBlackBerry are finally getting their updates. It's a pretty big udate with more then 370 MB so BlackBerry seems to be staging it.

Does it include some other patches than security?
The PRIV one for October was smaller, AFAIK.

I don't know. They are not obvious. Picture Password is still missing and I am waiting for an answer from BB when they will make it available.

Yup, update is coming, got mine yesterday, my DTEK50 is an Amazon one.

Still no update here. Unlocked DTEK50 bought via Amazon.
