Default BB 9900 upgrade to 7.1 giving brain haemorrhage

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, so I have an officially listed 7.1 update from BB India for my Bold 9900.

I have wasted ALL of today trying to update. I think I am going to buy an iPhone now.

I tried updating from my Mac OSX Lion and BB Desktop Software. It kept hanging at 'backing up social feeds' for 5 tries. I had logged out of ALL social feeds.

I now tried updating from a Windows XP machine. The update process kept hanging at 'backing up sms database'. This is my 4th attempt on windows.

After every attempt I have to take the battery out of the g-d-d phone, else it doesnt connect to BB Desktop (my computer OS and BB Desktop, need less to mention, are absolutely uptodate with whats available).

ALL I wanted , was to be able to use my BB as a mobile hotspot. Something which is simply available with Windows, Android and iPhone. One sholdnt be punished to THIS extent for using a BB.

Any suggestions? I know a lot of suggestions like 'hard reset, retry' types will come along. Keep them coming...
