BlackBerry stumbles over April security fix

by Volker Weber

DTEK50 came again first with the April 5 fix and then there was radio silence. Now we learned that BlackBerry had difficulties integrating all the individual patches. But they are handling it differently from the DTEK50 delay in December/January. This time they released the (partial) April 1 fix to PRIV (and DTEK60?). It only weights in at about 20 MB taking the build to AAK689. I wonder how fast they can recover for the May patch which is due in two weeks.


I want an official announcement if there will ever be an Android 7.x upgrade. And when.

Everybody does.

Well it seems BlackBerry already knew about it on April 6th:

"To identify an up to date software build, navigate to the Settings>About Phone menu. Look for the following Android security patch level:

April 1, 2017 or later "

Contrary to the month before where the full patchdate is mentioned
