Remove Blackberry 10 Anti Theft Protection Lock


Its no news that the new update of Blackberry 10 OS (10.3.2) comes with an updated security package( Anti-Theft protection) which is found inside the Blackberry protect app. This feature was made to take security measures like wipe, block or locate a Blackberry device when flagged as stolen or missing. When that is done, only the original owner of the phone with the valid Blackberry ID can setup the device again.
Unfortunately some of us buy used blackberry 10 devices which was originally setup using another blackberry id so after updating it to version 10.3.2 it ask to enter the Blackberry id which we do not have or know and thats a huge problem.
This tutorial will be showing you how to bypass the Anti theft protection. Follow the steps below. 

Note:
Romkingz is not responsible for anything you do using this tutorial


After updating to blackberry OS 10.3.2 you cannot downgrade to a previous version. But this sweet autoloader of Q10 (Q10_10.3.01.2267_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5) can downgrade on all Blackberry 10 models with OS version 10.3.2.2639

Download Q10_10.3.01.2267_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5 autoloader from here

Download the original 10.3.2 autoloader for your BB10 device
  • Flash/Update your blackberry with its original 10.3.2 autoloader (Assuming its not already on 10.3.2).
  • After a successful flash with the original autoloader, Flash/Downgrade it with Q10_10.3.01.2267_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5 autoloader.
  • Setup the Blackberry with your new id.
  • You can now update the phone back to 10.3.2  and set it up without any anti theft lock protection

If your phone still shows privacy protection lock, reflash it with Q10.3.01.2267_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5 autoloader or valid developers version of 10.3.1.

The above Q10_10.3.01.2267_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5 autoloader works for all BB10 devices except Z10 STL 100-1 so you will have to use the developers autoloader of this device to remove privacy protection lock on this phone. Download it from  the list below and follow the guide above
You can also use the dev autoloaders of other models to remove anti theft protection on them. Download them also from the list below and follow the same guide above

Leap STR100-1/2 ( use Q10_10.3.1)                    Download
Passport SQW100-1/2/3 (developer v.10.3.1)      Download
Q5 SQR100-1/2/3 (developer v.10.3.1)               Download
Z3 STJ100-1/2 (developer v.10.3.1)                   Download
Z10 STL100-1 (developer v.10.3.1)                     Download
Z10 STL100-2/3/4 (developer v.10.3.1)              Download
Z30 STA100-1/2/3/4/5/6 (developer v.10.3.1)   Download

Note that Blackberry might patch this trick soon

I used to be able to use autoloaders to get rid of the anti-theft Bprotect, but now on a Q10 and Z30 I first flash with their 10.3.02.2876 versions, then I flash with Q10_10.3.01.2267_SQN100-1-2-3-4-5, then I login blackberry ID that I know, then I flash back to 10.3.02.2876, but still get the anti-theft is on message and cannot bypass. What step am I missing?!

  25. is there anyway this anti theft can be removed by imei

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haven't seen any method on trying to remove antitheft through imei and am not sure there will be any. Not even when blackberry will soon be releasing update to all BB10, As they will be locked out of some apps even before the end of the year.

  37. Hi!

    Someone else wrote the same: this method not working on STL100-1 v10.3.2.2639.
    Downgrade to Z10 STL100-1 dev v.10.3.1 with the provided file: OK
    Login with my own and known BBID & PW: OK
    BlackBerry Protect is always OFF in SETTINGS, if enabled it set back to OFF state, without this step can not possible to associate the device on BB website.
    This developer version is poor with softwares, so I upgraded back - and AntiTheft Protection is active, my BBID and PW is not accepted.
    So, with the Dev's version you can reach to your BB, but you can't use lot of functions. If you UpGrade it back - AntiTheft Prot. is still ON and not possible to login with your BBID again.
    Please tell me a good solution and/or modify this article with these knowledge.
    Thanks in advance!
