    Awesome! Thanks alot.. downloading now. Just out of curiosity - how vital is it for me to shrink the OS, came across a few people talking about it earlier - but I'm not too sure how to do so..

    It's not vital at all. It's just the process of removing unwanted components of the OS software. Things like other languages or games and apps you maybe don't want. It'll make the install smaller and quicker, but it might be possible to remove some things afterwards anyway.

    Thanks.. I'll see if I can manage the shrink, otherwise will install as is.

    For some reason everytime I get to installing the OS on my comp, get an error message saying the Loader is already functioning - cant figure out where its functioning! Hope to sort it out by this evening and get this installed already!

    Hi guys!

    Any idea if this build helps or solves the battery issues? I have to charge my BB9360 at least four times a day! I've come to the point where I'm about to switch back to my old Blackberry tour...

    Thanks!

    I'm somehow finding that the phone discharges faster now, first day with the new OS so not too sure but am getting the feeling that battery life isnt all that great on this as well. Unplugged at about 9am, now about 12pm here - 2 BBM conversations, few incoming emails and about 30mins of music and battery is now at 80%. Wouldnt discharge this fast earlier - but like I said, will know for sure towards the end of the day.

    Seems like you are with Wind, so you would need to delete the vendor file, other than that, its pretty straight forward as desktop manager will see it

    I downloaded the file properly, installed it properly, deleted vendor.xml.
    after i connect my bb and start the apploader, everything goes fine, but the page where its asks us what to install and what to remove, over there it shows me only the 3'rd party softwares, no OS 7.1 or anything.
    please help

    If I remember well, there could be a 2nd vendor.xml somewhere... I just cant remember where exactly that could be the problem

    I called Bell tech support just now to find out how they decided on the 9360 for the first official 7.1 update, and I was told that it was due to the phone having "issues" such as frequent disconnects and others.

    I asked when it's coming for the 9900, 9810 and 9380 and was told the normal "we don't have any information, just keep checking blackberry.com".

    Anyway just thought I'd pass this on.

    I had the same problem and after looking for another vendor.xml, I've found it.
    It's located in:
    C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

    After I deleted that file as well, I have succesfully managed to upgrade my 9360 to 7.1.

    I already deleted both vendor.xml files and install the new BlackBerry OS. when the desktop software launch, i plugged in my blackberry but the 'install the upgrades box' did not appear and i cant proceed to upgrade.

    Please help. My Blackberry Desktop Software is v6.1.0.36
