  7. Hi Admin…I’m using BB 9790 with OS 7.0… I’m getting a software update notification (OS7.1) on my device and I wanted to know if I can do it on my own over WiFi. Also, I’m new to BB user community so I’d appreciate if I can have a look at some step by step guide on how to do it without messing up my BB….
    Another question is that, is there any danger of ending up with a “bricked” phone if i try to do it on my own as in case of iPhones and Android phones? Please help. Thanks.
