Yesterday, we reported on the BlackBerry Passport screen flickering issue. BlackBerry’s Michael Clewley has been quite vocal on Twitter and let users know they had likely found a fix for the issue. Though, there wasn’t an ETA on the official fix from BlackBerry.
However, files from a “leaked” Passport OS 10.3.1.2480 build have emerged, which apparently fixes the screen flicker issue.
“In order to load it onto your device, download Sachesi, plug in your device, go to the install tab, hit the install folder box, choose the presumably extracted folder and let it install the files until it installs all 70, unless there is files you specifically decided to leave out.
“If you get warnings, they’re safe to ignore assuming you actually read the fact these are for the Passport only and you’re not loading them on some other device. At this point, there is no autoloaders, there is no files for other devices and the possible issues/additions aren’t fully known plus, you need to already have 2243 or 2267 installed as you’ll be overwriting it with these,” says Bla1ze, EIC at CrackBerry.
