Sorry to jump in here... the OP most likely has a similar issue as more and more people report that in certain cases the pairing no longer works. I have confirmed this with both my beloved 9900 Bold and a 9810 Torch. Reverting back to the 126.96.36.1995 OS / Firmware solves the problem. Also the latest 188.8.131.522 has this issue of not being able to pair. Believe me I was just as surprised as anyone and I am very experienced in this matter - yes I removed all pairing and paired using the standard functionality and it simply is hit and miss in anything 7.1 - it almost seems as if there is something wrong with either the encryption or the time-outs. I tried turning encryption off but it did not make a difference. I am now back to 7.0 on both the Bold and the Torch and have no issues - the Bold is my primary and the Torch my secondary in the car and both connect without issues.

So after 10 days of fighting, rebooting, trying and mocking around with apploader and bhhtool I have temporarily given up to update to hotspot.
