Question Upgrade to OS 7.1 on Curve 9360

Please Login to Remove!

Gave my son a new Curve 9360 for Xmas.He would like to upgrade the OS to 7.1.
On my Bold I always did updates by following the usual procedure (delete vendor.xml, launch apploader, etc....)
Point is, he hasn't installed Desktop Manager on his PC yet. How is the Apploader folder created ? Thru DM installation ? In other words, will he need to install DM before he can do an OS upgrade ?

Wink Unable to Upgrade to OS 7.1 on my Curve 9360

My 9360 is currently running 7.0 Bundle 2055 (v7.0.0.464 Platform

I'd like to upgrade to v7.1 so I can test NFC. However, I don't seem to be able to do this as I did with previous Blackberry models / OS's.

Step 1: I downloaded "9360AllLang_PBr7.1.0_rel722_PL9.6.0.26_A7.1.0.219 _Bell_Mobility_Inc.exe" using a link I found on this site.

Note: My PC's operating system is Win7

Step 2: Ran the program after it downloaded. When this program finished, it told me to reboot my PC, which I did.

Step 4: Deleted "vendor.xml" from C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader

Step 5: Ran Loader.exe from the same folder

Loader program showed me all my installed apps,
but said "No actions are required"

What's happening?

There are at least 2 vendor.xml files that need to be deleted in 7.1. Make sure you get ALL of them.
