OS 7.1 update for 9360

Is there any possible update of 9360 available? As when ever I try to update using Desktop Software it tells me that no update is available and my Phone is still using 7.0 version is there any way to update?

Hi Jasbir123,

 

You have to force it. :smileyhappy:

 

Follow this steps.

 

You will need a PC, an internet connection, your BlackBerry Device and your device usb cable to implement all this.

This is how i upgrade my BlackBerry and ill make this simple and straight forward as possible.

 

1. Uninstall first any BlackBerry software that you previously installed on your PC, as it may and will conflict with the guide

 

2. Download your specific and latest BlackBerry device OS here or any other official BlackBerry software download page and install it.

 

3. Download BlackBerry Desktop Manager and install it.

Note: If the OS that you are downloading is from your official carrier, skip step 4, if you got it from other carriers – read on brother.

 

4. Change your folders option to show hidden files/folders (Click My Computer > Organize > Folder and search options > View tab > click "Show hidden files, folders, and drives"

 

Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, else

You can look for the two vendor.xml manually thru

- Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader and delete Vendor.xml. (If you are running 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader)

 

- On Windows Vista/7 navigate to C:\Users\YOUR_USER\AppData\Roaming\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML (Where "YOUR_USER" is your username) – On Windows XP navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR_USER\Application Data\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML (Where "YOUR_USER" is your username)

 

5. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. (If you are running 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader) double click Loader.exe. Follow the wizard and let it take your BlackBerry device into pure awesomeness.

 

6. That's it.

If all else fails, fire-up up the Desktop Manager and look for the update button (if it didn't pop-up)

 

 

Good luck!

It's safe to run other OS on your BlackBerry. Mine, my carier is Globe (Philippines), I upgrade my OS from Mobilicity carrier and my BlackBerry run smooth with no problems. If you are thinking negative things and thinking if problem will exist when installing it, then stay on your original OS. :smileyhappy:

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Scroll up...just 2 posts above yours is the link for the official download portal. You will have to dig through that to see if what you desire exists.

 

Good luck!
