    It’s been a little while since we’ve seen an OS build for the Bold 9900. The last one to drop has since gone official. Luckily, you 9900 users get a fairly higher build than what is official, as OS 7.1.0.342 has dropped. We’re not sure what is in this build, so do let us know what you might find.

    *UPDATE* – We apologize for the previous error with the download. Please follow the instructions below in order to successfully install OS 7.1.0.342 on your 9900:

    Download the 7.1.0.342 installer from BBH+ (courtesy of JD from BBH-Plus)

    Follow the instructions below:

    Method 1 – no base:

    1. Install OS to PC
    1a. Shrink your OS if you want
    2. Install to phone
    3a. For best results, do 2-3 battery pulls and allow 24-48 hour "settling" time

    Method 2 – .284 base:

    1. Install OS 7.1.0.284 to PC
    2. Install this OS over the OS folder above
    2a. Shrink your OS if you want
    3. Install to phone
    3a. For best results, do 2-3 battery pulls and allow 24-48 hour “settling” time

    Method 3 – .267 base:

    1. Install OS 7.1.0.267 to PC
    2. Install this OS over the OS folder above
    2a. Shrink your OS if you want
    3. Install to phone
    3a. For best results, do 2-3 battery pulls and allow 24-48 hour “settling” time

    Downloading now!
    How's the battery life?
    Just downloading to my PC has made my BB snappier!

    Kidding, kidding

    ******************
    Here's my updated OS install guide if anyone needs a refresher...

    ELITE1's OS UPGRADE GUIDE

    1. (Optional) Uninstall any previous OS from PC.
    2. Download OS to PC. Use Internet Explorer, not Firefox or Chrome. (For leaked versions, browser is irrelevant.)
      *If 100% certain you've previously used FF or Chrome on same PC to DL an OS successfully, feel free to use FF or Chrome again.
    3. Following successful DL, run OS file to install OS on PC.
    4. On BB, go to BBM Options, scroll down to Backup section. Ensure Remote Backup is enabled AND also conduct a Local Backup to media card.
    5. Go through any 3rd party apps with option to save settings to media card. Conduct Backup to media card within each of these apps. (Examples: Bellshare apps like BerryBuzz & BerryWeather; QuickLaunch; Shao's apps like Wallpaper Changer & SixTools; etc).
    6. Connect BB to PC. Open DM and backup device. Close DM.
    7. (Optional) Use desktop app like BBSAK or BBMCP to backup 3rd party apps.
    8. On PC, delete Vendor file located here:
      64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
      32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
    9. (Optional/Recommended) Run BB Boss v2.2 or BBH Tool (formerly Shrink-A-OS).
    10. In same AppLoader file where you deleted Vendor, double-click Loader to load OS to BB. Follow onscreen instructions.
    11. After loading OS, perform several physical battery pulls over first 1-2 days for OS to "settle in." Perform first batt pull very soon after OS is loaded.


    TROUBLESHOOTING
    How to Fix OS not Appearing as Available
    There are 2 common reasons:

    A. HIDDEN VENDOR FILE
    Consider trying this new desktop app to remove Vendor from several common locations:
    Vendor XML Remover V1.0

    If manually deleting Vendor, always hold down SHIFT and press DELETE to permanently delete.
    Check here first:
    64-bit: Computer\C:\Users\{USER NAME}\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML
    32-bit: Computer\C:\Documents and Settings\{USER NAME}\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML
    If Loader still doesn't make new OS available, search PC for "Vendor".

    If Vendor is not found anywhere, see below to delete contents of AppLoader folder. (Folder where you found Loader & Vendor.)

    B. APPLOADER FOLDER ITEMS
    1. Uninstall the OS: Control Panel\Programs and Features, highlight this BlackBerry Device Software, click Uninstall at top.
    2. Delete AppLoader folder contents: Highlight any item, CTRL+A to select all, SHIFT+DELETE to permanently delete.
      64-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
      32-bit: Computer/C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/AppLoader
    3. Restart PC.
    4. Re-install OS on PC: Go to your browser's downloads section, double-click OS to start InstallShield Wizard.
    5. Delete Vendor: Return to AppLoader folder, highlight Vendor, SHIFT+DELETE.
    6. Load OS to BB: Attach BB to PC, double-click Loader (in AppLoader folder, where you deleted Vendor).


    PS I've posted this before in other threads, but there always seems to be some people that appreciate a step-by-step each time.

    From what I hear, there was a memory leak issue with the .267, has that been fixed with this leak?
