Hello RishSha

 

 

Device Software depends on each Carrier , Our  Carrier test those OS packs and then release them to there customers , You can locate your Carrier here BlackBerry Software Download Site  to know the recent OS available for your device model . But you're free to use other Carrier OS packs also .FYI , most Carriers have released 7.1 for BlackBerry Bold 9900.

 

 

Do let us know if you need any help or have any queries.

Hi RishSha

 

 

Its my personal opinion that never perform an On Device Software Update Over the Air, you can also try an Manual update process which is rather more convenient and more safe. To do that just follow those simple steps :

 

1.Locate your Carrier and Download the OS you desire from here  BlackBerry Software Download Site

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

2. Now Double Click  on the file that you Downloaded to Install it on your PC

 

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

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

4.Search your C: Drive for any Vendor.xml files and delete them, there may be one or two Vendor.Xml ( On your PC change your folders option to show hidden files / folders ) The location may be  :

  • 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 using BlackBerry desktop

Software.

 

Try it and let us know if you feel any problem .

Re: Latest Software

Hi RishSha

 

 

You're using a MTNL SIM card right ! Did you bought your device from them or from a BlackBerry Retail Store ? If you're having problem then you can use this Carrier Software Download for Redington (India) Limited .

Re: Latest Software

If I use the steps you have told me , is there any chance that some glitch can occur in the phone . I mean , is this a tried n tested method . Also , if the update fails , will the phone die or keep running on older OS ?
