BlackBerry Priv users now can install new update on their device. The update comes with security patches. We have seen monthly security patches but these are a little different.
As few days ago, we have seen that a security flaw was found in Android/Linux kernel for a specific attack, BlackBerry push software update with aim to prevent the device from such attack.
The build number for the update is AAE298. The update may arrive with similar patches to Android base that Google is supposed to roll out in the Nexus devices this week but it’s possible that BlackBerry has imparted some additional enchasments to its device.
However, the update has just started to roll out so it may take a while to arrive on your device. If you want to check the update before the notification you can do so by going into the settings > About > System update > check manually for update. But keep in mind, this update has nothing to do with March security update, if you have installed the monthly update then it’s not over yet you have to wait for the next update which comes with security patches.
Two days before BackBerry announcing the update for unlocked versions of Priv, the AT&T Priv variant received its March update.
