haven't install that previous update... 1st

timandmissy

Same here... And I'm usually all over every new beta os. I guess I've never been so happy with the stock version shipped with my phone. I'll try this one out though.

dannycat

Downloading, will be installed in the next 10 mins :) about time too we got an update!!

napleskahuna

Is it faster? Smoother? Buggy? Let Cracknation know!

captainm90

About to install this on my bold 9780. This should be interesting!

cookney

how would that work? its for the 9900

RulerD

I just want better battery life and I'm good.

Gregory Ryan

Waiting for a 9930/9850 leak. Heres hoping.

Jake Storm

WooHoo. It has a FFC now!

UnknownError507

that's a wicked UPDATE FFC = Front Facing Camera, does it work on my Torch to ??

Probably the user was talking about NFC(hope is a spelling error FFC)

Past 7Weeks will we didn't see an update and finally we see them leak :D

pilot-leo

Anyone has a mirror for this download??
would really appreciate a mediafire or megaupload! "/

Shane8750

I'm just hoping UMA will be added.... finally! : /

sonic_champ

ive been waiting for a leaked os for weeks, and then it comes the day after i took my 9900 to get the screen repaired> why did i drop it :(

soaresr

Ok something's up here. I've done these leaked upgrades a million times, but when I load this leak onto my device it says it's version 7.0.0.261

This is my first 7.0 device but is there something different you have to do? In the past I would uninstall the old software from my PC, install the leak, delete vendor.xml and run apploader.exe

Did the same thing this time around, did a backup, installed the software, did a restore. One thing I noticed was the phone number reboots. I find that very odd.

Any insight?

Shane8750

isn't .261 the stock OS it ships with? maybe something didn't update correctly...

soaresr

Ok. A PC Reboot solved the problem :)

ashfaq

How is the battery life for this leak. My current out of box OS has horrible battery life and I'm hoping that it is addressed in this leak.

Dugganm

Its a bit early to talk about battery life on this build as its just been released. It'll take a couple of days for installers to determine if the battery life has improved.

But .353 improved the battery for some people...and worse for others so unless you install this leak you'll never know if it helps you or not!

tekware

NFC was working on the last update 353. The only things I'm looking for are even better battery life (.353 plus getting rid of WeatherEye helped a lot) and in particular ... UMA. This phone is not the 9900 I wanted until UMA is on it and working.

Kryptonian1218

I am running .353 and I do NOT have NFC as an option in my Manage Connections or Networks and Connections menu.

Did you do something to make it active? Why do you think it is working? What did you use it with to determine it is working?

tekware

Well, I can't speak for your phone. I can only speak for mine. It's a 9900 on Rogers (from Rogers) and it's been upgraded to .353 by me.

"Near Field Communication" shows up in my "Manage Connections screen, along with Mobile Network, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. I can turn it on and I can turn it off. If I turn it on, my battery is not as good as when I leave it off (this is anecdotal on my part). This leads me to believe that something is turning on. I have not in fact USED it yet due to the fact that I have not encountered anything to use it on. I haven't used Wi-Fi B on it either but in my heart of hearts I believe that it would work if I needed it to.

UMA is not on my phone and is not working. My 9900 will not be complete until that happens. Hello? RIM? You there?

darkstar954

is there any new instruction on how to update it???? HELP!!!!

Shane8750

Same as it's always been... delete vendor.xml file, and i always use DM to update. doing so as i type this....

Dugganm

I've never used DM to install a leaked update. I've always used Apploader...

darkstar954

did that, and i try to run it nothing happen, whats "DM to update"

fermanagh

I am unable to update my 9900 with this O/S

Software is successfully installed on my PC

I've deleted the vendor.xml from all locations and reinstalled Desktop Manager. I've also tried using loader.exe and it doesn't even recognize the software on my PC.

Anyone got an idea here?

soaresr

Reboot your PC. I had the same issue (read above)

zeelob

I've been "connecting" to DM now for over 10 minutes and still have not yet connected

Parum

OS installed with absolutely no issues. Not seeing anything about UMA....

fermanagh

reboot still doesn't resolve the issue!

anonymousbxtch

Has the battery problem been fixed? Nobody cares about all this mirror files !!

Parum

The OS was only leaked a couple hours ago.... I can tell you my battery hasn't died in the 30 min since I upgraded.
If you want reports on battery performance you will have to allow a little more time....

sieuboon

this doesnt work. I tried to install, and did the same routine as always. Program files, common files, research in motion, apploader, and it shows something from 3/21/2011?!?! wtf is that!! and I tried to restart computer, no dice...bs

hjmargarido

well it works for me...no bugs to report...yet..;)

djnick

if it doesnt show up try uninstalling desktop manager. Clearing everything left over in the folders in application data or appdata and reinstalling desktop manager then the firmware and it will show up. Thats how it was for me

ps4rh

WiFi hotspot, wifi hotspot, wifi hotspot....

(crosses fingers....)

VacTacks11

I don't remember seeing NFC before this update, but it's there now (I'm with Telus Mobility).

I don't see any Wi-Fi Hotspot though.

dalmondWR

Always had NFC on my Telus and I'm still on .261

echomouse

Installed on first try through Desktop Manager. Seems to be working fine. No problem or new updates that I have noticed

lohphat

Just installed on my t-mobile 9900

No NFC, no UMA.

charlielefaux

I just installed on my t-mobile 9900 as well. Agreed, no NFC, no UMA. (I don't see any differences at this point really, hopefully behind the scenes action is awesome.)

update: I now have a compass application, only visible difference so far.

superD9900

compass has always been there, and nfc is carrier dependant as i have nfc on mine, vodafone uk runnin this leaked os...

charlielefaux

For some reason, every email message I get is "truncated due to size" -even ones that have only one word in the entire email. Anyone else experiencing this? Is it an issue not related to the upgrade? Thanks

hybrid1976

I always had the compass app on mine from the day I got it from Tmo. NFC is not active yet on this leaked OS. From what I heard, Tmo is blocking it for now.

daveshiz

just got however it has app world 2.0.143?
however quite happy with as imo 3.0 is crap
just sayin !!!!!!!!!!!!

ataboonn_2t

hey guys, would anyone be able to help me...im stuck at the screen that says "Select a device to connect" and it seems that the drop down box doesnt have anything??? my 9900 in connected to the pc in media sync. if anyone could help it be really nice :D new to blackberry. thank you ben

Gees97

does this work on the 9930 cause everytime i type it lags and misspells everything i type and puts periods in between every word.this is a laggy POS stock OS

tekware

No. This is for the 9900 not the 9930. The 9900 is a GSM phone. An update for the 9930 should not be far behind. You need to wait for that.

As for the misspelling, the phones don't usually make up their own words. It's usually the user that can't spell. On a BlackBerry, if you hit the space bar twice it will type a period. It's supposed to do that. Is that what you are seeing?

bbeezy

tmo 9900, no uma, no nfc, no kfc, battery life is still crap: i was working with %95 at 6:40pm. i turned on 4g, bluetooth, and wifi, opened the wikitude app for around three minutes. literally. then closed it. i did nothing else, no surfing, no music. 10:11pm: in the yellow at %15. whats killing the is the 4g. i heard that in another post, tested the theory, and can confirm: 4g is like dracula on the battery. now, i STAY on EDGE, wifi is stays on even though i rarely surf on my phone, and the only time i turn on 4g is if i want to hit up the app world or surf on my playbook. other than that, 4g is pretty much useless. stay on EDGE and youll keep your battery.

sdtbmx

if you have tmobile you will never see nfc because they have blocked it. also there will never be uma only wifi calling.

Cheea

Anyone have an idea of when we can expect an official release for the 9900? I'm new to Blackberrys and i'm not fully comfortable with installing a leak. The only real reason I have to upgrade is battery life..

tekware

Official releases are by carrier so it would depend on their releasing it. That could be when hell freezes over. If memory serves, I was running various OS5 versions on my 8900 for almost 2 years before Rogers released one.

These releases (not hybrids) are for all essential purposes official since they're from RIM. They just haven't been approved by specific carriers. Hopefully in the future we can just go to an over the air upgrade system and bypass the carriers all together. Then maybe specific carriers would be less inclined to block features and wouldn't delay updates in the hopes that you'll instead by a new phone from them.

Cheea

Ohh, I did not know that, thanks a lot!
I'll probably try this out sometime soon then!

tommyboi111

installed the os on my computer but desktop manager doesnt recognize the update can anybody give me the steps on which files have to be deleted in order for desktop manager to recognize the update

alphanite

nfc & uma will def be on the official os once released, when we were being trained on them, it had the update and both features were viewable.
