BlackBerry 7

If you managed to get your hands on a new BlackBerry Bold 9900 and finally got it all squared away, here's a reason to tinker around some more. OS 7.0.0.317 for the Bold 9900 has leaked and it ready for the taking. The stock OS seems fine and dandy to me, but this one could be even better. If you install be sure to drop a comment letting us know how it is.

*OS Disclaimer - Please Read: Keep in mind this is NOT an official release and as such is not supported by RIM or your Carrier. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you're comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They are not always better. Depending on your BlackBerry comfort level, it may be best for you to wait for community feedback on a build before deciding to download and install for yourself or simply wait for the next official release. If you require support, you will find it in our CrackBerry forums via our extremely knowledgeable community base - do not contact your carrier or RIM for Beta OS technical support (their first course of action will be to advise you to downgrade to a supported OS). *

"The stock OS seems fine and dandy to me"

apparently you don't look at your battery meter

I would recommend against this build. Just stay with what you have.

PrimalYeti

And why do you recommend against it? 0.o

For those of you experimenting with your new toys: Did you have any trouble or issues migrating everything from your previous device onto the new 9900? In particular I'm looking at applications moving over (and perhaps erasing the fun applications which came with the phone).

Does it have mobile hotspot?

How's the battery life with this OS?

harshjhaveri

i'm finding the battery life very poor, but then i've been using it only since 2 days.

OS update doesn't work.. I've been doing OS updates from 4.x up to the latest 6.000.600 - all the same way. Delete vendor file, run the loader.exe file, same as usual.

On the update / app selection screen, I just get "Wireless Music Sync" for an option, that's it. None of the major listings you can chose (languages/apps/etc).

so I cannot update it - this usually happens when I try to run an OS update on a wrong device (9700 OS on 9800), it's as if this update doesn't seem to be for the 9900 somehow.

Thoughts? / help! :)

EDIT: Also, the loader.exe file crashes on XP - tried on two different machines - one was a fresh install.

Cheers

same problem with my 9900 tooo, anyone has any solutions ? ? ?

dudeonthecrack

I had no problems installing this update using Windows 7 32bit. Did the following: Updated DM to latest version, installed the update, wiped using JL_Cmdr, deleted vendor.xml, ran loader.exe.

Fix for updating 9900!

So after poking at this for a while... (long techie, non-essential troubleshooting explanation skipped) led me to notice that if you un-install everything - DM, the OS/Firmware update, reboot, re-install DM from BB website and re-install the OS update, all works fine.

I launched DM, plugged my 9900, initialized the device and it asked if I wanted to update to .317

Of course I had the vendor.xml file deleted in advance.

This is off my same PC I've been updating many BB devices, running Win7 x64 Pro which wouldn't update (even by running the loader.exe) my 9900.

Hope this helps!

This fix worked great! Deleting both and re-installing allowed me to update the OS through DM after being prompted to install the update.

Thanks!

.317 seems to work nicely

I've been monitoring apps CPU usage, mem usage, batt life and so far nothing negative, works well, can't say that its better either as there was nothing wrong with it. I'm on WiFi at work at all times so no drain there either (for those who find WiFi to drain batt life).

Still fast, all my apps launch well, I say get it if you like being on top of the latest builds for their updated code!

wxynot

does .317 allow to calls directly from the browser. the OS i have now does not allow for this. I have to cut and copy phone numbers when trying to call from a website.
Does anyone know? Can they check????
Thanks
