126.96.36.1996 OS Released For 9810 On Mobilicity
Just a heads up to any Mobilicity users. They have officially released 188.8.131.526 for the 9810 4 days ago. Just checked the carrier downloads section on RIM's site and sure enough - new OS! Have no idea what this release does yet as I haven't updated. But I plan on it.
Scroll to the bottom (or do a CTRL + F for a search) and look for Mobilicity. It will take you to an HTTPS page, select the 9810 from the dropdown and fill out ******** form...

First two things to check for anyone downloading are whether or not they allow HotSpot for free like they did with the7.1.378 build; and secondly if there are mic issues for AT&T users. The last build they put out for the 9810 was awesome! The current Cincinnati Bell .746 build is great but it is part of the AT&T/Bell system so the upside is no mic issues, the downside is HotSpot costs money to use! Anyone that loads this build, please keep us all up to date on the build. Thanks!!!
Scroll down to the bottom (or do a CTRL +F) and find Mobilicity, it will take you to an HTTPS page...that's why the URL I posted screwed up. They'll make you fill out a ******** form...

Had a failed upgrade - bricked my phone. Not happy. Doing the unbrick salvage (How to Unbrick a Blackberry) as I type this. So pissed off...
Going through the re-install of all my apps and data now. Thank goodness for backups. DO ONE or you'll be even more screwed than I was...at least I had something to go and salvage. Anyhow, thus far the phone is ridiculously faster than the previous build. I don't know if it's the OS or what yet but connecting to App World to download all my apps and reinstall them is going soooooooo much faster than what I'm used to. I should have done BBSAK app backup, but I didn't...oh well, clean slate.
- FYI Hotspot functionality is still there and works fine on my carrier (Mobilicity).
- Screen rotation works fine too (somewhere I read that someone's screen stopped rotating using another carrier's OS release).
Update: Well this thing FLIES now! I mean it's like a brand new phone compared to the old release (.378). The interface is super snappy and applications load almost instantaneously. My GPS locks in much faster than it did before and browsing the web is much smoother and renders a lot faster using Opera Mini and BB's browser. This thing rocks! Its too early to note battery differences still.
Though I had to upgrade the hard way (from scratch) I am glad I did.

Has anyone had a chance to compare the files/platform between this new Mobilicity .746 build and the Cincinnati Bell build. If so, is there any difference? Mecca/Wulf--anyone? Thanks, Go1ndr

Just tried to update and the installer says nothing to do despite me being on .714!!!!
Thats this version and the one in the sticky that says it wants to downgrade my version - the phone shows .714 though, nothing else.
Any other files out there to try?

http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...-files-709738/ I posted on another thread that you were on, the same info but noticed that you were using Windows 8 so I'm not familar with how the installs work with W8--sorry. Also saw that there is a newer OS on the threads this morning. Don't know much about it. I am using the .746 from Cincinnati Bell and it works great. Keep us posted and good luck.
