HELLLP! I can't install OS 7.1 on my 9860 no matter what I've tried!
Before y'all start thinking I'm just another clueless noob, I've wiped and installed BBOS on my other previous BlackBerry's dozens of times without a problem like this. And, yes, I've poked through other threads on CB before posting this.
I bought an unlocked AT&T branded Torch 9860 to use here on the Telus network. When it came in the mail, I charged it up and it started up fine. I put the SIM in and it logged on to Telus' network without a problem. The software version I started out with was 22.214.171.1240. I plugged it into my desktop manager running on Windows 7 64 bit in hopes of getting a decent version of 7.1.X.XXX right off the bat but noooooooooooo... it only upgraded to 126.96.36.1996! I manually downloaded the latest version of the 7.1 (188.8.131.523) from Redington in India and installed it.
I fired up BBSAK and it connected to the device like this:
And, yes, it actually DID connect with the PIN and everything...
And I get this!
I did that a few more times with the same stupid result...
So I tried the App Loader in the Common Files...
and it connects like this:

loads up like this:
Application Loader 2.1.JPG
AND I end up with this!!!
Application Loader 2.2.JPG
I tried going to the official RIM software download page for my carrier and getting Telus' official 7.1 (184.108.40.2067) and I tried the same things all over again and I got the same friggin results! I tried 507'ing the phone the software still won't load! I combed through CB trying to find some insight, ANY insight into my problem here. I tried downloading several different versions from different carriers, different sources and it's the same damn thing! I tried hunting down and destroying any and all vendor.xml files, uninstalling and re-installing BlackBerry DM several times, uninstalling and re-installing anything and everything BlackBerry related, I tried other loader programs, I tried cleaning my system caches and registry with CCleaner over and over, I tried unplugging my internet connection, I tried standing on my head and yodelling pagan rain chants while setting fire to my shoes!!! I'm still stuck with AT&T's official 220.127.116.116! Nothing works at all!!!!!
Do any of you geniuses have any more ides?
I want to choke the living s**t out of the AT&T executives and IT who have handcuffed my new BlackBerry like this. A pox on all their houses to the third generation!
