BlackBerry December Security Patches

Here is my educated guess of what is going to happen in December. First you will see an update for the PRIV, then a few days later for the DTEK60. DTEK50 will receive the November update that was never released, followed by the December update a bit later.

BlackBerry is not communicating about what happened to the DTEK50 November patch. The most likely cause is that they tried to bundle an operating system fix with a security fix and subsequently failed a test.

The bigger problem here is that BlackBerry went dark. When you fail to communicate, everybody assumes the worst.

Comments

Think that failure is very much encompassed by BlackBerry's inability to market itself properly - that is only communication, after all!

So much seems to have to be spread by the masses of loyal fans, including our friends at Crackberry.

They will have to learn to communicate much better as a "software company" than ever they did as a mobile phone manufacturer!

I do hope & pray that JC is moving onto that challenge next (ie. Right Now!)

Just for the record: My new PRIV (model STV100-4 from the BB shop, thanks for the recommendation) received its December security update in the evening, labeled '5. December 2016'. Now we'll have to see how good your guess was ...

I also have a STV100-4, directly from BlackBerry and it is still showing November as current. The challenge remains. ;-)
