    When you connect your BlackBerry Bold 9900 device, look for OS7.0.284 (it's the updated "OS .342" folder) don't worry.

    Hope that helps you or anyone else.

    Thank you.

    Go to the desktop manager, file, update. it will tell you that there are no new updates. click on the left "view other updates" and select the .284 because you upgrade it with the .342 and done

    That's what I just did

    Thanks Grimreaper

    It won't tell you if is old or new. You will select the same .284 that you got installed on your phone. But, when you pasted the files on that folder, you updgrade the .284 with the .342 but will still show up like .284. Just open the desktop manager, click on file and then update. Then on view other version, and select the .284. When is done, you'll have the .342 on the phone.

    Anytime panco469, glad to hear it worked out for you, unlike other BlackBerry Bold 9900 members, who are still experiencing issues how to get OS7.1.0.342, but that's what I am here for

    Hello avianu3009, if you see if the image I have uploaded for everyone to see you have 2 OS side by side (OS7.1.0.342 and the already installed OS7.1.0.284 (or any other previous OS install (for Bold 9900 Only) *.284 preferred* I have opened up my newest OS7.1.0.342 by visiting:

    Computer > Local Disk (C: ) > Program Files > Common Files > Research In Motion > Shared > Loader Files > OS7.1.0.342

    Open up the folder, and either drag and drop the entire folder contents to:

    Computer > Local Disk (C: ) > Program Files > Common Files > Research In Motion > Shared > Loader Files > OS7.1.0.284

    (if Windows 7 pops up a message to continue to copy and paste) > press OK

    This may take a few minutes as you're overwriting folder OS7.1.0.284 from OS7.1.0.342 now.

    This folder is effectively a 330MB file once it is extracted from our Download Area.

    Once you have done this, all you have to do is connect your BlackBerry Bold 9900 device to an available USB port from your Windows Vista/7 PC, and use either BlackBerry Desktop Manager 6.1 (stable), or BBH-Tool (advanced).

    Wait until BlackBerry Desktop Manager has connected your device.

    Now scroll to Updates, and look for OS7.1.0.284 (this is the NEW OS7.1.0.342).

    Follow prompts to update your BlackBerry device, and enjoy the new OS7.1.0.342 on your BlackBerry Bold 9900.
