OS 7.1.0.402 has leaked for the BlackBerry Bold 9930. This is an unofficial (leaked) OS, so while it's mostly safe to install, remember to use caution when updating your device. If you need help along the way, you can head into our help forums or check out some of our BlackBerry 101 articles including How to Install or Upgrade to a new OS or How to Upgrade Your BlackBerry OS Using App Loader. If you do install this OS, hit up the forums thread below for findings, fixes and more discussion.

*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). *

Gee, and I just installed .342 this morning.

Link didn't work for me after I entered the Captcha.

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! .342 just 2 days ago! Lol, gotta wait on this one. I hate setting up all my apps again.

I was about to install *342 but when my Bold was under the charger an ifno apear on Twitter that *402 is available :D Im ready to install now.

I just installed the .342 and I am happy with it (better than .340 leak that I had been running IMO) so unless this one has something extra, I will wait for next official upgrade...

CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO DOWNLOAD THIS USING JUST MY 9930? I CLICKED ON THE LINK ABOVE, BUT THEN RE DIRECT ME TO FREAKSHARE, DO I NEED TO LOG IN? DON'T HAVE USERNAME ON THIS?? WHAT TO DO? I CHECKED THE SOFTWARE UPDATES ON MY PHONE, BUT NO UPDATES IS SHOWING. THANKS

I installed 7.1.0.402 on my Bold 9930 and I couldn't be more pleased. It was my first time installing an unofficial update, but everything went pretty good. Don't forget backing everything up, eg BlackBerry Protect. I noticed that now it's faster and battery usage is better. It also corrected an issue I had with Vlingo doing a voice text over bluetooth. There are changes in Blackberry Appworld like sharing a list of your installed app with someone else over NFC.

Can anyone confirm that the Google Local Search works on this update? I am still running 7.0 on my 9930 because the Google Local Search function never worked for me on 7.1.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I do the download and never desktop manager does not recognize the update. What do I do?

I jst installed the official .342.. But I guess I'll try this in some days.. Is any better than the .342. What are the fixed bugs?

I'm hesitant to download leaked updates that aren't from one of RIM's servers. Can RIM post these on their servers for download?
