Re: 9810 : the official OS releases

well RIM works a lot but if you look closely, RIM's customers are the carriers and not you and me, who are the carriers' customers. So it makes sense that RIM releases exclusively to carriers.
From a carrier point of view, you would not have a customer call you and demand support for OS7.1 if you have not trained your hotline team to OS7.1 for example.

About the testing channel, you may find some interesting things at the BlackBerry Beta Zone. I have no information because French citizens are not allowed to enter the Beta Zone (yet).

Manual device OS upgrade instructions:

1. First locate your OS from above

2. Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion and unplug BlackBerry. Get DM here http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/

3. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.

5. This step is not needed unless there is an issue on next steps. Use BBSAK from BBSAK.org and wipe the device (after doing a complete backup) then after you get the error 507 (no OS installed) then proceed to step 6

6. remove internet connection to PC and reboot PC.

7. Plug in BlackBerry and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file was in.

8. if you did Step 5, restore from back up. Follow this KB if needed http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB10339


Enjoy the new OS
