When, Why and How to Use BlackBerry Autoloader to Flash BlackBerry Device

BlackBerry Autoloaders are complete Stand-alone .exe or .msi applications that can single-handedly install complete or partial BlackBerry OS on your BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry autoloaders are programmed to run in MS Duos, Command Prompt and PowerShell on Windows PC. As far as I know, BlackBerry autoloaders are only available for Windows PC users.

There are official BlackBerry autoloaders (made available by RIM) and there are unofficial autoloaders. The unofficial autoloaders are the modified ones. In either case, an autoloader, either official or unofficial, are being used for the same or similar purposes.

Why Use BlackBerry Autoloader?

1. For Advanced Fix: BlackBerry autoloader can be used to fix serious issues such as BlackBerry Red-light blinking, 75% bootloop and other issues not resolvable by BlackBerry loader.
2. Force-Upgrades: BlackBerry autoloader can be used to upgrade a particular BlackBerry device though the update may yet be available for that device.
3. Force-Downgrades: same as Force-Upgrades, autoloader can be used to downgrade BlackBerry device. This is common with BlackBerry10 devices and usually happen if you want to bypass a particular feature of the latest firmware.
4. For Advanced Customization: you can use a modified BlackBerry autoloader to customize your BlackBerry device to your taste.
5. Faster repair service.
