    Thumbs up Its more fun to have OS 7.1.0.284 for Bold 9900/9930

    To all the BB Bold OS 7 users, I am personally expressing my encouragement for you guys to use the new OS 7.1.0.284 as it is absolutely cool upgrade I just saw the update here and tried it, and TADA! I successfully upgraded my Bold 9900 without any hassle and I must say, the new Official OS is extremely cool and works perfectly fine for me.. A bit bigger file but it is "a must upgraded" OS.. So grab your Device, get your USB Cable and start upgrading.. Download the OS here: http://bit.ly/yOblcz :: Credit to Sir TwistMyMind and to the Admin of BBOS Team ::

    I believe the main difference is added language support. Which is why the file is bigger.

    User have reported that Chinese characters and typing are now supported as well.

    Thanks Joe...

    My question should have been more clearly stated. I wanted to know how the OP found. 284 to be more fun. More features? Better Gmail functionality (my pet wish)?

    Gotcha, maybe some other team members that have installed the OS will be able to leave some feedback as well.

    There is a big difference between the 2 for me.. When I upgraded my Bold 9900 before to .267 (leaked version), it lagged most of the time.. Not sure why that was happening.. Maybe because its a leaked OS.. Even the camera/video runs very slow that I could'nt take much of pics/vids and I needed to pull the batt out to get it working again.. With the email, its perfect! I have 3 emails running on my phone (My work email, Gmail and Hotmail) and I'm having No issues at all..

    There's no added features with the new .284 aside from being multi-language, that's why it has a bigger file.. But all I can say is that it really run smoothly as compared to .267 (for me )

    Well try to upgrade it and then tell us your feedback and we'll help you out

    Thanks for the offer of assistance, however I'm quite comfortable with upgrades - official, leaked & hybrids. My question was primarily about the Gmail side. With all of the 7.1's to-date, I've been disappointed with the Gmail integration.I found the 6.0's superior, in that labels were editable from the device; items archived could easily be found by filtering by the label name in 2 clicks; and sent items were not left in the Inbox. The only plus I've found with the 7.1's is that I'm able to apply labels and archive incoming messages from the Messages folder instead of the separate Gmail folder.~ecm

    Hello elessar, if I may post my opinions regarding upgrading to the Official OS7.1.284 for the BlackBerry Bold 9900.

    Previously, I had OS7.1.0.267, and it wasn't too bad, it was a good working leaked build, but it definitely had its issues, such as lag, and freezing, which would happen for a second or two, sometimes a few seconds, and I'm sure a few BlackBerry members can agree with me, lag is the most disliked issue.

    When OS7.1.0.284 was released, courtesy of our Blogger TwistMyMind , I downloaded the build from our download section, and installed it, remembering to remove the vendor.xml file, it was a flawless install.

    I wiped my Bold 9900, used BBH Tool v.2.4.9.5 to custom install OS7.1.0.284 removing all the additional languages, other applications, Fonts, Games, IM/Social apps, even media files.

    This will significantly reduce the overall installation size of 267MB for my Bold 9900 to approx. 140MB OS file.

    In turn will be a much more responsive BlackBerry device, and leaves more more internal room for installation files and other applications.

    Overall, OS7.1.0.284 has been a pleasure to use, probably the best OS I've ever used on my Bold 9900, and I'm sure if you own a BlackBerry Bold 9900, or BlackBerry Torch 9810, you will be very satisfied upgrading to this latest official build.

    Thank you.
