    the 7.0 and 7.1 have 2 (TWO) Vendor xml files to delete.

    As for waiting - that's fine. But if you are now going to update now that it's official, and its the same OS as the Sprint version, why would you spend more than an hour to download and install an OS OTA, when it could take you less than 15 minutes to grab the same version from blackberry.com?

    I can't seem to stop the update to delete social feeds. Pulled the battery 3 times, trying to start over. I know, I know, thats a big no no.

    For me, I could not get DM to find the OS installed on my computer. I tried to uninstall/reinstall then delete vendor.xml. then I tried a few other ways listed in the forums.

    So this way made it easier. That being said, I've installed leaked OS's probably 4 dozen times. Not an expert, but certainly not a newb.
    have u tried to show all hidden files in folder option? If no, please do that. Possibly you ever install blackberry O.S for several times, and one of vendor.xml file missed to delete.

    I ever had experienced with this problem and solve by doing as I told you above. Hope this can solve yours too.

    I too found the 7.1 update was not on the VZW website this morning so I downloaded and installed over the air. Here is a recap of the update with approximate times of each step:

    Download 41 meg file: 18 minutes
    Backup and reboot: 10 minutes
    Unpack and reboot: 3 minutes
    Patching OS (two times): 18 minutes
    Patching Java and reboot: 44 minutes
    Linking Java (progress bar re-set several times with percentage returning to zero)and reboot: 22 minutes
    Restoring Data: 4 minutes
    Total time: 2 hours till Update Successful message

    Everything seemed to restore OK with exception of the new BBM. Last night I updated to 6.1.0.49 but the backup reverted to my old version (.32?). Had to re-download and re-install.

    hehehe, maybe this issue is never get first attention from RIM. As you said, It is truly annoying to reinstall all application installed before, after we upgrade or downgrade the O.S

    44.5 mb download for me. Everything went off without a hitch.

    I have an extra file labeled "Emergency Alert Messages".

    Does the verizon wireless screen stay up longer for you on reboot?

    It did for me on the first two reboots or so. I did a battery pull and now it is back to the same load up speed.

    I can't really say it does or does not. I just did a battery pull and it seems fairly normal. Typically, when I swap batteries, I lay the phone on the table or put it in my pocket. I'll go back to it once I need it so I never really observed the VZW screen.

    I pulled the battery and used DM. It reloaded the OS. Then had to do a restore.

    I'm guessing that is for Amber alerts but, I don't know.
    Check your Message Options and you will now see an entry titled Emergency Alert Messages (bottom of list, below Spell Check and Text Messaging). Open that and you will see settings for Presidential Threat Alert Messages, Extreme Threat Alert Messages, etc. If you have your sound on and hit the Try It button, you will hear the typical emergency alert tone and customized vibration.

    Loaded 7.1 with no troubles. in fact, Hotspot works , linking my ipad, which is 3G but I did not start up service for it, but I haven't called Verizon yet for the additional hotspot package plan either. But I do have unlimited data, so is hotspot connection already included?

    Pull battery and leave out.
    Connect BB to PC.
    Click update on DM pop-up.

    Never thought to completely leave the battery out. Incidently, I seem to have missed an update somewhere. I got 7.0.0.1739 first. Guess I'll be going back for 7.1

    I did the OTA update this morning. It took about two hours with no problems. I really don't notice any performance updates on my device or any "snappier". The scroll was a lot slower and "buggy", but a couple battery pulls fixed that. The language globe on the keypad got replaced with a ?. Mobile Hotspot is now on Manage Connections. I really don't see anything else.

    Stuck on restoring calendar for 2 hours now. So far 6.2 hours into the update. 5PM is the cutoff for me....then this pile of trash is getting replaced with an iPhone. Will miss BBM, but won't miss the heaping pile of problems I have almost every day.
