Earlier this week we mentioned that Wayne from the BlackBerry Beta Zone was going to get an update to the Developer Alpha pushed out.
Well the update isn't out yet, but it looks like RIM has finally managed to get the update OS feature working for the Dev Alpha; if you've bricked (or lost the Camera from running a security wipe) you can now reinstall 10.0.4.187 (which might be a downgrade if you were on 10.0.4.197, but an upgrade from a bricked device) using Desktop Manager.
I believe you'll need to be running the Beta version of Desktop Manager for this to work, which you can get from https://beta.webapps.blackberry.com/betas/view/953
We're still hoping for an update sometime this week!
If you want to read the discussion in the Beta Zone, you can check it out at https://beta.webapps.blackberry.com/threads/view/10839.
Stay tuned folks, hopefully we'll have more cool stuff in the wake of this release.
