I don't mean to spam, but I'm really stuck, can anyone help?
I'm new to upgrading my OS, I've just recently purchased the 9860. And now I'm having issues upgrading.
I've installed the latest version of Blackberry Desktop Software, I've backed up all my data.
I then downloaded BBSAK from their website and was following this thread,
How to Wipe / Load OS Using BBSAK
I then downloaded and installed this OS, Latest 9860 Official OS 188.8.131.528 from Telstra.
I then used BBSAK to wipe my phone, I waited a while, and now I received the 507 Error screen. I made sure Vendor.XML was deleted from
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader"
I started up Blackberry Desktop Software, I had this,
I ignored that and started the Loader.exe from
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader".
Then recieved this,
That didn't work so I tried using the Load OS feature from BBSAK and got this..
So now I'm stuck.. Can anyone help?

Second XML file
Search the previous beta os leaks for this device and you will find that there is another xml file that you have to delete in order to get the os to load onto your device. I believe it is a hidden file within the user folder (usually your name) under the hidden folder "Appdata" under I believe "Roaming"-> "Research in Motion"-> "Blackberry"-> "Loader XML"Bboy follow on twitter @brandonlegere06/ pin msg or add to BBM if needing help with BlackBerrys

Installed this last night. I can say that after about 12 hours of usage, the 9860 seems snappier, doesn't lag at all, and battery life has improved tremendously. Am very happy with this upgrade and will recommend to all.

I have had this installed and running for almost a week now so I figured now would be the perfect time to give my views on this OS.
So far I have noticed the usual with a new OS load - Phone Snappier, no lagging clock, less mem leak, less battery..... blah blah blah blah
Now for the real stuff, first off I am still running the stock battery (no upgrade here yet) and with that I get a full day of use (BBM, Emails, Sms, web surfing - googling documents and videos on youtube, taking pictures and videos, music for my 3hr train ride/walk, plus the weather channel updating ever 30mins) - drains at about 4-6.5%/hr and Mem leak of 26.6/mb at the end of the day. Phone off the charger at 6:30am and returns to the charger at around 11pm-12am depending on the day.
Also I have notice, don't know if this was possibe in the other builds but in email messages now have option to allow swiping between messages - this can be done by: Email Options>Message Display and Actions > under actions there is a check box to allow swiping through messages
the install took about 30-40 mins with no issues at all. I would say a solid upgrade from 184.108.40.2062 and .342
Install and enjoy, you will not regret it.

is good the memory leak around 26 megas per day or it could be worse?
my 9860 has around 23 or 27 mega per day memory leak
i have installed facebook, twitter, scoremobile fc, angry pigs, angry pigs seasons, ap, banesco (bank app), al jazera, msn messenger, and one of f1.
i don't know if one of this has a relation with the mem leak.

Taking the plunge: easy stuff really
After watching this topic for a good few days I decided to upgrade from 220.127.116.112 to this latest OS.
Really easy stuff, downloaded the app exe file, ran it on PC, ran vendelete.ext (to get rid of any proprietary xml files) then fired up BB Desktop Manager, removed my 32GB media card, attached Torch and messenger asked if I wanted to upgrade my OS to this latest version.
After hitting OK the whole process runs automatically and took about 30 minutes in total.
The result: One happy 9860 complete with all apps etc re-installed.
Just popped the Media card back in and all seems good to go.
Will post back if any untoward happenings but honestly are not expecting any.
For any 9860 owners out there nervous about upgrading their OS, don't worry: it really is a breeze. Its a bit like changing the oil in your car: not essential but something you really should do now and then.....!

However I have had really bad mem leaks of 100mbs in a day so having 20-30 in one day to me is not bad, it could be better but 23 or 27 mb in a day is not bad at all, i also have facebook and twitter installed as well (not beta versions).
if you find that you are leaking more mem than you like try removing applications that would run in the background and see if it improves. also if you still find that the device becomes unresponsive then I suggest doing a fresh install of your OS and only install the applications you want, good way to do a clean up as well.
Good luck hope it has helped

The base memory leak is related to the coding of the media player and indexing. For OS 7.1 devices once the media player is engaged (from Alarm, ring tone or alert to streaming or just listening to an MP3) a leak of almost 1 meg per hour ensues. Pre OS7.1 this would be considered horrific. But 24-26 a day now is considered par for the course. My guess is, this will never be fixed on 7.1. Memory leak should be near non-existant on BB10. So just deal until then.Ad Lucem

Meterberry is great for monitoring your mem leak and batt drain with the use of alerts when it reaches a specific amount of mem leaked or batt time left and with Quickpull I find it great to do a quick restart of the device(almost comparable to battery pull), also I have a scheduled restart with Quickpull, set to go off just before I wake up each morning so that I can start each day with a fresh device or a Freshy
Enjoy and Hope it helps

After 72 hours of installing this new update, I can give a better comment on it.
1) Battery: One word - AMAZING. On 2G, I finish off my day with approximately 40% of battery to spare. I receive about 250 emails per day and use my BB to reply maybe 20% of those. I'm a heavy BBM user and IM+ user as well.
2) Memory: Memory leaks are expected. I installed AUTMemory and run it about once every hour to clear up unused memory.
3) Feel: The phone does feel snappier. No spinning clocks since updating. Opening and closing programs seem faster for me too, but maybe that is just me...
4) Features: All features are intact, including Hotspot.
I can honestly say that this release is probably the best till this date.
