OS 7.1 bundle 2061

Has anybody installed this update on a Bold9900?
I wanted to share my thoughts with you.
It seems that for once they did something right even though there's still room for improvements.

First off with this update I've been able to uninstall and delete completely Blackberry Messenger without any issue, achieving that using App. World.
Second I've seen there's a new app that comes with this bundle which is meant to close heavy programs, running in the background, that are not in use.

Thanks to this 2 things I've seen a great improve of my battery life. Consider that I've uninstalled BBM but still always running whatsapp, yet I reach the night with a 20% more of battery left.

Only issued I had after this update is that if I connect my device to the desktop software for some reason I cannot share my connection anymore. It reports an error which I haven't figured out yet. Meantime I rely on the hotspot feature.
Anybody had the same issue?

Hope my thoughts are helpful for somebody!
