7.1.0.74 Leaks for the 9900, WiFi HotSpot enabled

Rrrebo over at CrackBerry just let me know that 7.1.0.74 for the 9900 has leaked and it has WiFi HotSpot support!  This seems to be something long over due.  Aside from that there is no other change log.  Another weird thing, is that the last digits of the OS are not in a multiple of 3.  I can not remember seeing an OS that ended in 2 digits for a long time.

  1. Thanks a lot Terrence

  2. This build also has UMA for T-Mobile. One odd thing is that some menu shortcuts are missing their last character – for example “Move to folde” and “Delete Prio.” Seems a bit half baked, but other than that I haven’t run into major issues in the first hour with it.

    • i am yet to see this and i just looked hard for like 10 minutes on all sorts of items.

      • It does eat the last letter of some menu items and it’s actually hilarious. “Bac” , “Exi” etc.
        Otherwise, I find this build very good. Stable, battery life seems good, considering all complaints I’ve read about previous versions. I should mention that I just got my 9900 and have never used another OS on it.

  3. This build seems to be missing NFC controls.

  4. Cool, where’s the 9810 love? 😀

  5. Just did a wipe with BBSAK and installed this OS build and its the real deal. UMA WORKS! It seems to be stable as well havent had any slow downs. Also this may be isolated to me but UMA works better under 2.4Ghz than 5Ghz.

  6. I did a complete wipe of my 9900 before installing and I DO NOT experience any type of missing letters. Those of you that are how did you install the OS?

  7. I wiped it with BBSAK. Did not perform the built-in security wipe function thou.

  8. Ok, I can confirm that Mobile Hotspot is working on AT&T with the settings mentioned above. Got connected in no time. I turned it off immediately though, cause I don’t want to get charged extra. Do you know if that’s a service you need to subscribe to with your carrier?

  9. OK I’ve run this OS for the last few days and I’m VERY impressed.

    – battery life has gone up A LOT (my biggest issue with 9900)
    – wifi hotspot works well
    – overall very peppy and stable.

    The only bug I seem to have is occasionally calls will answer in speakerphone mode vs. handset or vice versa but the screen doesn’t reflect the active mode properly. I’m not sure if maybe my face is hitting the screen or what… but it definitely behaves oddly once in a while.

    Overall though a great upgrade.
