Looks like it's a day for some leaks. Just like the BlackBerry Bold 9900, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 is now seeing a leaked version of OS 7.1.0.205. If you're looking to get you're device upgraded, now is the time to do so. Just keep in mind it's a leaked build, back up your data and such before you load this one up.

*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). *

What's the difference between the 7.1.0.190 and 7.1.0.205??....someone let me know please.

Already installed! Didn't delete Vendor.xml. Didn't 'wipe' last time nor this time and I'm glad, everything right back where it was, no wasted time reloading apps. Back in business.

what OS were you upgrading from? Was there a cost to download the files to upgrade. I'm still on 7.0.1355 so I'm a little leary of these leaked versions.

is it good or should we wait for the official?

Leaked version is actually a completely finished OS straight from RIM. Since RIM always collaborate with multiple carriers around the world, the term "Official" OS is basically the finished OS from RIM that's given to the carrier to be redistributed to their customers. So, "Official" OS are those that are locked to carriers (unless you delete Vendor.xml file before installation), while "Leaked" OS are the exact same thing, but not assigned to any Carriers, hence they basically can operate in any carriers around the world.

Note, that some features such as 4G, HSPA+, Mobile Hotspot and Wi-Fi Calling are available to all BlackBerry Torch 9810. If the settings don't appear in your phone, then it's your carrier that doesn't support it. For example, my carrier in my country don't support 4G and HSPA+ connections and therefore the settings don't exist and I can't use them. Mobile Hotspot is available in the phone and can be set to be activated, but due to my carrier's infrastucture limitations it cannot be activated.

Bottom line, "Leaked" is NOT a beta build of the OS. It's a finished version that RIM hasn't been able to release through carriers.

When I boot under this O/S, I get the following error.

Uncaught exception: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.

I sometimes get this when browing or for no obvious reason. I've removed nearly every app I use, and would love some advice on how to troubleshoot and maybe even fix this error.

I just downloaded this OS 7.1.0.205 for my torch 9810 and am having trouble installing it on my phone, please can some one explain how I can install it, cos I've tried using the device manager and it keeps saying no update available for my device. Thanks

just installed 7.1.0.205 and everything seems fine except for the touch screen accuracy and responsiveness. Wonder if anyone else is having the same screen experience?

i just installed it on my 9810 with Rogers. So far it all works well. The hotspot feature is flawless.

Wow installed it and works great, some nice new features.....super thanks Crackberry for this new release. For those that are struggling with the installation, you must remove the vendor.xml file there should be 2 files( I moved both of them, its simple just do a search and move it anywhere (ex. desktop, my docs....) and then update from desktop manager!

Can this be done ota or do I need a computer?

You need a computer; PC specifically unless someone can explain how to do it on a Mac.

Installed it (7.1.0.205) earlier in the week. Comments about memory leak are true; I'm losing about 20-25MB per day but on the Torch this is manageable. Some graphic rendering is a bit slow and I've had some trouble scrolling in BBM with the trackpad but otherwise no issues. All of my apps were fine after the update but I had to log back in to anything that requires a user ID/password.
