But, remember to create a backup of your Black Berry’s data before starting the OS 7.1 upgrade process and sync your phone with the Black Berry Desktop Manager, so in case something goes wrong you are covered.
The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process.
Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a screen with an hourglass or status bar for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization." If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run again and it should load the OS to the device.
