Let the next Android security update cycle begin

by Volker Weber

BlackBerry has made their next security update available a day early. My DTEK60 is updating as we speak. I now have three different levels:

  1. DTEK60 BBA100-2 is on 5 Jan 2017 Build AAI470 Kernel 3.18.20
  2. PRIV STV100-4 is on 5 Dec 2016 Build AAH995 Kernel 3.10.84
  3. DTEK50 STH100-2 is on 6 Nov 2016 Build AAH990 Kernet 3.10.84

I have one report of the PRIV STV100-4 on 5 Jan 2017 Build AAI459.

Please report your updates as they occur. The results are public.

[Thanks, Christian]

[Update 6 Jan 2017:] DTEK50 is now receiving the 05 Dec 2016 update. Build AAI482 Kernel 3.10.84. This appears to be the latest build and BlackBerry is still a month behind with Android security patches on DTEK50. This is a not a distribution issue.

Gibt es eigentlich Zusagen von BlackBerry, was die Dauer der Unterstützung der Geräte mit Sicherheits-Updates angeht?

Bisher kenne ich im Android Bereich nur die Nexus Geräte, bei denen es von Google Zusagen über die Dauer der Unterstützung gibt:

https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/4457705#nexus_devices"

Eine Anfrage bei Samsung zur Dauer der Unterstützung des Galaxy S6 und S7 ergab nur, dass man "keine Informationen vorliegen habe, wie lange die jeweiligen Modelle Updates erhalten werden".

x + 2 Jahre. Wobei X ein Zeitpunkt in der Zukunft ist, zu dem ein Gerät abgekündigt wird.

Das wäre ja schön. Kann man das irgendwo nachlesen? Auf der BlackBerry Seite bin ich da leider nicht fündig geworden...

Danke. Im selben Artikel steht allerdings auch, dass Thurber "weiter zu seiner Strategie stehe, Android mit monatlichen Sicherheitsupdates zu unterstützen". Was daraus geworden ist, kann man ja in deinem Artikel hier schön nachlesen... ;-)

Wenn Thurber also die einzige Quelle für die "x+2 Jahre" Regelung ist, und das nicht irgendwo offiziell auf der BackBerry Webseite steht, braucht man da IMHO nicht wirklich was drauf geben.

Nein, muss man nicht. Aber wenn man die Kunden kennt, denen BlackBerry sowas verkauft, dann doch.

My DTEK60 has just updated to AAI470, Jan5th Android security patch level. I will report into your form.
Unfortunately, no new firmware for our PRIVs.

Again 10 days after initial reports of updates, and again no sign of PRIV STV100-4 update (and I know the Privs are not the worst ones).
I wonder how they want to manage even more different devices in 2017 if they can't handle 3 models (with various subversions) in proper timeframes.
But perhaps they can sneak out by telling the new devices are a problem of TCL - was there an update-commitment by BlackBerry for those new device(s)?
