Hi nexpinder

 

 

Welcome to the Community

 

 

If your vendor has not released 7.1 and if you wish you can update your device OS by installing any other Carrier's OS packages.To update follow the steps :

 

1.Locate your Carrier and Download the OS you desire from here and Install it in your PC or Laptop Carriers

  • (make sure you are downloading for the same model as you have )

2. Download and install the latest BlackBerry desktop software from here BlackBerry desktop software

  •     Then using desktop software perform your full backup of your device.   

3.Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, there may be one or two vendor.xml ( On your Pc change your folders option to show hidden files/folders ) :

  •     C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader
  •     C:\Users\Windows UserName\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML

 

5. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. (For 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path       will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader) double click Loader.exe

 

      Upgrade will continue then After Installation of New OS restore your backup from BlackBerry desktop

Software.

 

Try it and let us know.

Re: Blackberry 9900 OS upgrade 7.1

Hi
I have the same problem.
And I have tried this way, but not work.
The following is my situation.

My smart phone is Blod 9900, the current version is OS7.0 bundle 2395.
First, I have followed the official reference to update my "desktop software" to 7.1.0.37.
Second, connect my phone with computer.
But when I click the renew, it just show "Your BlackBerry is up to date"
