After a long long wait, the AT&T BlackBerry Priv Smartphone has finally started receiving the official Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. Undoubtedly it’s pretty long time the users were desperately waiting for this firmware to reach their handset and finally the day came. AT&T started pushing this update earlier today. Before in April the unlocked units of BlackBerry Priv were already upgraded to the official Marshmallow OS. AT&T is the next carrier after T-Mobile to push the Android M update for the BlackBerry Priv.
AT&T is rolling this firmware Over the Air and hence might take sometime before its hits all handsets. But that doesn’t mean, all BlackBerry Priv devices will receive this update delayed. Some of you might have even started receiving the update. If you are the one to receive this firmware, then you need to download and install it on your device right away. But remember the firmware measures 1.4GB and hence you are recommended to download it using WiFi. Else much mobile data from your device will be used.
But if you have not received the firmware yet, then you can opt for the manual search option by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Update. If the firmware is available then download it using Wifi and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to flash it on your Blackberry Priv. Post update, you can see the software version changing to MPSS.BO.2.6.2.c2-00007-M8994FAAAANAZM-1.55185.2 and the build number changing to AAF355.
Post update the Smartphone will undergo an array of changes that include superior keyboard for Blackberry, enhanced battery life & storage, improved Notifications, superior camera, customized personal data permissions, greater privacy and security, clearer notification settings, and S/MIME support, granular app permissions, Google Now on Tap, Doze battery Mode and many more. All other changes you can easily mark on your handset once it gets upgraded to the newest Official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
So is there anyone who has already received the update? If yes, then forget not to share how you liked it!
