Latest OS 9900 7.1.0.921/7.1.0.267 (All Languages)
 
Software For BlackBerry® Bold 9900 smartphone
BlackBerry Handheld Software v7.1.0.921 (All Languages)

Package Version: 7.1.0.921
Consisting of:
Applications: 7.1.0.267
Software Platform: 5.1.0.230
File name: 9900jAllLang_PBr7.1.0_rel921_PL5.1.0.230_A7.1.0.26 7_SK_Telecom__.exe
File size: 261.47MB
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...wseSoftware.do

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: https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...AA89712D19A506

Same build with Asian Language is also available. Just select 9900 on the dropdown box, and you can choose AllLang or Asia.

You seem to be right, they pulled 7.1 off the website for some reason. I am sure another carrier will popup with a version soon. Link in Post #3 is working, just have to fill out all your info.

Weird.

So I've downloaded this and am having an issue.

Once installed, I reboot my computer and then delete the vendor.xml file.

Once I un the loader program it sees my device, scans and then only shows 3rd party applications and none of the OS stuff.

Upon using a 9700 and trying to update its software, same problem!

I uninstalled all Blackberry software, did a 9700 update I had to get done, then installed this 7.1 and tried on my 9900 only to see the issue happened again.

Anyone have an idea of what might have happened?

I'm currently running 7.1 Bundle 648 (v7.1.0.205, Platform 5.1.0.181) which should mean I'm not ahead of this package.

Downloaded and installed. Anyone notice a difference yet? Someone mentioned a mobile hotspot feature in the 7.1OS for the 9930. Where can I configure this in the 7.1OS for the 9900. I also noticed there is now yet another upgrade to BBM.

What version of DM? Try deleting the vendor and disconnecting from the internet. Then reboot and try. Vendors are sometimes repopulated.

I have been on 267 for a month or so. Better than the last? Probably. Battery Saving Mode, HotSpot, better battery management (I don't see it, but some have mentioned it) I guess coming from 7.0.x.xxx it can be very different, but I have been on 7.1 for months, and can't really tell anymore what has been changed.

I am having the same issue (7.0 only OS's). The one link above that works for 7.1 is for Asian only. Telus here in Canada has been saying for about a week on its web site that 7.1 is coming soon. Hope it does soon.
I am expecting my 9900 hardware upgrade to arrive this afternoon (tired of waiting for OS10 and miss the original bold 9000 key pad) so am anxious to jump to 7.1 right away.

I really do not know what to say, it's there, now it isn't.

This carrier is really annoying.

Free - Envoyez vos documents Just tried this link. It goes directly to 7.1 AllLang. File Sharing site. I was just about to download and link it up on ge.tt Looks like this link works.

[If an Mod could erase all these other links. That would be awesome.]

Downloaded and installed. Battery lasts longer. Like the hotshot feature. Only beef was that I lost my custom ring and alert profiles. Spent an hour trying to set them up again.

Re: Latest OS 9900 7.1.0.921/7.1.0.267 (All Languages)
 
My new 9900 arrived yesterday afternoon. I was upgrading from a 9800.
I ended up using the Asian version from one of the links to the SK site. The direct link to the All Languages in post 23 downloaded a small executable file which, when clicked, my computer said it was not compatable with 64 bit windows.
Asian gave me English so that is fine. Looked like I was getting Japanise and Chineze characters also. It has been so long that I did a major OS upgrade that I am not sure how to get rid of unnecessary stuff.
I did a switch device from my 9800, both data and 3rd party apps. It chocked on Blackberry AppWorld as not being compatable, DM shut down and I did not get any other apps teransferred from AppWorld on.
A corrupted version of the standard Blackberry Theme appeared (with no row of icons showing as default. I had been using a third party primarily calendar app which worked mostly OK on my 9800, but which will not work at all on my 9900.
So after the truncated switch device I loaded up 7.1.0.267, to see if the corrupted standard Blackberry theme with a default of no rows of icons would do the trick. No luck.
I did a BBSAK wipe and reloaded .267 and I have at least one row of icons by default. Will now have to reload all my third party apps, manually (I have a BBSAK backup, but am now concerned about compatability issues with the new hardware and OS up from 6.0) from app world or directly form 3rd party sites.
Tried hotspot last night and it seem to work well.

On major negative so far. I am new to both the 9900 and OS7+, having come from the the torch 9800 on OS6.
One of the the things I could do with the 9800 touchscreen would be to quickly go through my list of e-mails and delete, forward or reply on the screen by pressing X etc at the bottom of the touch screen on my Torch. It does not seem to be available on my touch screen Bold 9900. This was a major convenience on my Torch 9800. Is this not possible with the Bold 9900? If so it may be going back.

I meant the hotspot feature. Not really liking the predictive text on the Playbook OS 2.0 a whole lot.

Do you not have the option to turn it off? At first I used to try to type everything with predictive on the PB, but after awhile, I just found it easier to type the whole thing out. Nice option to have, but I have hated predictive since my V3 days.

On the 99xx, while in the message list, you press and hold your finger on the message. A popup list will appear offering all of the choices available for the message. The popup options are also customizable in Options>>Touchscreen Sensitivity

Just went on the blackberry website and telus most recent one is: v7.0.0.2406

:(

It would save me lot of trouble if they release the 7.1 officially as I'm on telus

What kind of trouble? Just download the leak - it's no different from the official release. I'm on Bell, same network as Telus. Using 7.1.0.267 since it was leaked a while back - working well and no real issues to speak of.

Well if it's tellus official then I would go into my BB and look for upgrade and install directly instead of using the desktop manager.

I dont have the option anywhere to set this, help tells me to go from main screen Options > Typing and Language. I dont have T+L from options on the main sceen at all. When I go search for Language under universal search I get options to change languages for typing, voice etc but nothing about predictive text.
Any ideas where its hiding ?

Options>>Typing and Language>>Typing: Change Style from 'Direct' to 'Predictive'. Then you can change the advanced options if you enable predictive.
