same happens when i run loader.exe here too as per the .746 version
the installer runs but doesnt show up the core 7.1 components, jsut shows the installed apps page with an option to remove etc. If I select as is (ie no change) then next screen just says all completed - in other words the installer isnt picking up the new version somehow.
only 1 vendor.xml on the whole system (windows 7 and have done patches on this machine before) and that was deleted. Have run the patch again to repair and remove and run ccleaner, registry cleaner etc. Still comes up the same.
So what on the PC should I be looking for???
Phone defo says .714

Downloaded and installed on two 9810's.
Everything ok except lost bbm chat history. Not sure how to keep chat history between upgrades... BBM Contacts were deleted during the upgrade and restored automatically after upon entering BBID, discovered there is no backup and restore option in BBM7, just the contacts are backed up automatically by BBM7 using BBID.

Blockbuy, elementary I know, but did you delete/empty your recycle bin? This happened to me one time during an upgrade and couldn't find any Vendor.xml files on my computer but they were in my recycle bin. I dumped the recycle bin and restarted my computer and then it saw the upgrade download and installed it. Also I now use the removal file "vendelete" that you can get from these forums. I don't have the link but will post it after this.
Just for the heck of it, do a full search using your start button and go to advanced and click on "computer". That does an in depth search of the pc. It's hiding somewhere or it would show the install and sometimes the new download adds their (new OS) Vendor.xml file as well.
Lastly if nothing is there, you can do a complete wipe using BBSAK after backing ALL your files up using DM; then-- do another vendor search and finally open apploader and install. I know AppLoader does a wipe but BBSAK gets all the cods and takes it to the 507 message. At that point you have a brand new phone with no OS. Totally clean so to speak. Then after download, do the re-install and then restore from BBDM. If you have already done this, I appologize and even though you have probably done it, maybe someone on here didn't know this and it will help them. I'll post the Vendelete.exe file (dos file) as soon as I find the link. Good Luck!
Edit: Here is the Vendelete+ link to the page that explains it and has download on it. Great little timesaver program. http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...-files-709738/
PS: Blockbuy--just reread and saw you were using W8 so I don't know if any of this search info would apply. My apologies if it won't.

I always run vendelete - if you are on windows 8, to run vendelete you have to right click, run as administration, and proceed past the warnings.

oh man - than you.
Had been searching for the elusive 2nd vendor.xml file and assumed as search results said no then it wasnt there - that tool found him in a hidden directory!!!!!
boom straight into the install no problem whatsoever - again thanks :-)
for ref using windows 7 and windows 8 machines. workls great on the windows 7 one, will try next update on windows 8.

So which upgrade build did you finally upgrade to? .746 or .794 that just came out? Keep us posted as to how it performs.

Bridged email on the playbook side now shows a button to get images and it works. I didn't change the version of bb bridge software, just updated the phone to .794

Can't wait to see the performance on this one, although I had to give up a beloved hybrid to try it out.
Just wish I shrunk it down a bit before I got going. Oh well. *Sigh*BlackBerry Passport | AT&T

- Ask if you want it
For those of you running it, how does it fare in the temps and battery departments. Any new features or improvements. Currently running a hybrid and don't wanna jump ship unless this runs super smooth then i can use it as a base or even as it is.BBM Channel: C000F811E
What doesn't kill you could very well injure you. Also, its morally wrong to allow naive end users to keep their money

My 9810 keeps locking up on me and I have to take the battery out constantly to reboot it (and the life span of the battery really sucks). I wanted to upgrade to the 9860 but rogers here in Ontario have it only in select stores!! Do you know where to get it in Midwestern Ontario with rogers as the carrier??
- 12-13-2012, 05:12 PM #21
So far, so good. Battery drain for me is small, 0.9-1.0/hour. Haven't looked at battery temperature, it isn't usually something I watch. It has a fast bootup and my carrier signal is very stable (according to MeterBerry). Still in the early stages, though.BlackBerry Passport | AT&T

Has anyone who is on AT&T in one of the known Bad Mic Cities, loaded this on there device yet and if so, please post the city you are in and if you have or have not had mic issues with this build?
This is very important information for all of us AT&T users. As most know, the .4xx/.5xx generations of the 7.1 builds had mic issues for AT&T carrier users, that caused the phone to non-fuction as a phone once installed. Any info regarding this is important and much appreciated! Thank you! Go1ndr

To help AT&T subscribers report if they have mic issue problems with this build (mic issue = you can hear callers but they can't hear you), I thought I would post the list of "bad" cities that experienced the problem:
Mic problems were reported in the following areas:
Baltimore (MD), Boise (ID), Cleveland (OH), Cincinnati (OH), Denver (CO), Detroit (MI), Eugene (OR), New Jersey, NY, Central PA, Philladelphia (PA), suburbs of Philadelphia, Phoenix (AZ), Portland (OR), Seattle (WA), St. Louis and Kansas City (MO), Wilmington (DE), Washington DC, Wisconsin, Minneapolis (MN), Wichita (KS), Glenwood Springs and Aspen (CO)
So - any fellow AT&T users who live in or travel to one of the above cities, please do let us know if you have any "mic issues" . . .Z10 - 10.3.1.632 - work and personal

I installed yesterday, and I don't see any problems with the OS, but to be honest, I'm very distracted by my problems launching google maps.
When I launch google maps, it attempts to load the Terms and conditions, but before I can accept I get
Serious error. Please exit and restart. Exit
After searching the web, and crackberry, I see it has nothing to do with the OS, other blackberry users who have reset google maps, or re-installed google maps are in the same boat. The posts appear to have started on December 12, and I don't see a work around or solution yet.
Some people have speculated that this is due to the contract RIM signed with Tom Tom.
Whatever the cause, if you're like me and really rely on google maps, I'd suggest you don't upgrade, and don't un-install google maps.

I' ve read that Google Maps does not play well with 7.1 (newer builds) and that there have been some issues. I would honestly completely delete the app (not just uninstall it) from App Manager and re-install from appworld via the usb link to pc/AppWorld. If it still doesn't work, BB maps is very good and works well with BB Traffic.
