The first BlackBerry 10 OS update is now available, although we have to warn that 10.0.10.261 update is not official so you install this on your Z10 at your own risk. Having said that, knowing that you will be able to have the latest software on your BB10 device will prove tough to resist.
As yet there are no details as to what features and fixes Blackberry 10.0.10.261 update includes, but you have to be weary, as this could not only resolve some issues but also create new ones as well. If this does not serve as a deterrent and you are still eager to add some new features to your BlackBerry Z10 then head over to this Forum for all the details.

However, we have to warn that that you will need to use a Windows PC in order to install Blackberry 10.0.10.261, which could be an issue for those who do not own one. Having said that, we would not risk it ourselves, but you already know those risks when downloading and installing an unofficial update.
We are hearing that several people are having issues getting this to install, while others report no such problems. On the same Forum above there seems to be some confusion because some members are saying that this is not the latest version, and that their Z10 is running an even newer version all ready, we’d love to have your input into what version you are running.
It’s obvious that BlackBerry is already working on the first official update to help rectify some issue with the software; we just hope that it will help improve the battery on the Z10, as a review here points out that it could be better. We already gave you some ways to help improve your Z10 battery life, but this was only a temporary measure.
