Official OS for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 from Cellcom Israel


The TMO one was the first leaked OS7 / 7.1 that caused my 9900 to lockup. All the leaked versions worked fine except for TMO.

downloaded and installed but having trouble getting desktop manager to recognize...

little help, i've done this almost with every bold release except the previous TMO one (looked too complicated)

deleted one vendor file

restarted pc as prompted, running win7 64bit. what am i missing?

[Deadly duo - Playbook/Bold]

That did it, installing now. I had did another search for 'vendor' from C: in windows and it found the second file.

installed fine for me, working fine.

i cannot seem to get Easy Lock to work anymore

could we manually adjust screen brightness before and backlight timer? because i can't seem to find it anymore just battery saving mode

Edit: easy lock works fine after reboot

I installed an hour or so ago and everything seems to be working all right. Give it a couple of days and we'll see how things go. Hoping the battery life is better but we'll see and of course as usual no 2G selection mode for AT&T just 4G.

cant install on one of the 9900s i have but its fine on another. if anyone has a fix let me know in a DM. please no msgs saying delete vendor file(s). or re installing and uninstalling all other versions. 9900s a rogers as is the other one.

Does this os fix the issues with media playback? Where all media will not play and u have to restart phone everytime. Or when u playing music, and u get a call, music doesn't start playing again..

Also, my nfc setup was wiped, I had to register my shortcuts touch again and nfc shortcuts. Product keys easily found on app world.

Have to resetup my nfc tags. I only have 3 so no big deal but be aware, unless I did something wrong.

Does any1 hav the podcast app wrking? Is d podcast app in this OS? Or podcast app doesn't work with 7.1 yet? 9900/

Podcast wasn't working for me either. I could open the app... but it would'nt sync until I click on the option "hide" while trying to sync. now it is working fine. Might want to try that.

Downloaded it and Installing, No issues until now, will tested for a couple of days. i will keep you all posted!

anyone having issues with the BB Protect? seems the new T&C just came up and asking for you to accept it before the protect can be restarted. mine is just stuck in the loop, doesn't wanna restart at all..

*** update: just performed a hard reboot (for the 5th time today.. after few battery pulls to settle the OS) and yeah, the new BB Protect's T&C eventually appeared (to be longer than before..), got it accepted and seems it's up & normal now.
