Default Re: Latest OS 9900 v7.1.0.2218 / 7.1.0.794 (jAllLang)

I know that no one has asked but am I missing something?
MY Windows 7 has folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion but not the one always listed in the instruction here in the thread.
Can someone please help? I keep deleting the file under apploader folder and it does not let me install the new sw. I have been installing thru BBDM whenever it becomes available.

Thanks

Package Version: 7.1.0.2218
Consisting of:
Applications: 7.1.0.794
Software Platform: 5.1.0.571
File name: 9900wapijAllLang_PBr7.1.0_rel2218_PL5.1.0.571_A7.1 .0.794_China_Unicom.exe
File size:286 MB
Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.

Download the OS file here: https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...AE3246E810A259

Instructions for installing on the 9900:
1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml." Vista/Win7 users: In the apploader folder, simply click on "Compatibility files" to see the actual Vendor.xml file. Once you've got that - simply delete the vendor.xml file there (even if you've deleted or think you've deleted it in the folder previously) and voila, it will allow you to update to the newly installed OS!
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

The process may take up to 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a black "BlackBerry" screen with a status bar for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again, and it should load the OS to the device.

Previous OS here:Latest OS 9900 v7.1.0.1997 / 7.1.0.694 (Multilanguage)
