Just installed this on my 9981. Tried for few hours. As usual with all my other firmware upgrade on any BB, my BBM groups messed up. Either they don't recover everything or I'm the only 1 member in all the groups. And also they always don't come with the newest BBM version. So at apploader it's a downgrade. After install I have to re-download the newest BBM.
Other than that, one thing I notice is the screen now is less sensitive (in a bad way). I have to touch the screen harder for it to respond. No it's not the screen hardware problem. It was fine right before this version.
Have to use longer to report further experience.
Any others that have tried please give insights. Thanks.
Another discovery. I tried 3 aftermarket batteries with 2000mah. They don't seem to work with this version after coding/copying from original battery. They work before upgrading. Then tried the aftermarket batteries with my 9900 with 7.1 version they work easily.
Just downgraded my firmware to original 7.0 version. I can confirmed screen is back to responsive, and my aftermarket batteries works again. Glad I stayed as the 2000mah do last a day of full use for me. Can't be bothered with new 7.1 mobile hotspot feature.
