Updating a blackberry
To obtain the latest operating system for your Black Berry device, first check your wireless carrier's website.
This is the best way to get official RIM OS software.
To start a new operating system install, you'll need your Black Berry, an Internet-connected PC, a USB cable and about an hour and half of free time—50 minutes or an hour for the upgrade process and 30 minutes or catch-up time afterwards.
Mac users beware: RIM doesn't currently offer the Black Berry Desktop Manager software for Apple computers; however, industrious Mac owners running Parallels and who have a copy of Windows have been able to upgrade their Black Berrys via Macs, though the process can be a bit clumsy.
To check which version of Desktop Manager you currently have, you should launch the program via Windows Start menu Desktop Manager.
Then click the Help tab on the main screen and choose About Black Berry Desktop Manager.
To do so, open your PC's Program Files App Loader and then delete the Vendor file, which is in XML format.
If you don't delete the other vendor's file, the software won't be able to install the software on your carrier-locked device.
If you do decide to install unofficial software and it's from a carrier that isn't your own, you should be sure to ditch the software's vendor XML file before beginning installation.Black Berry Device Updater features and highlights: Black Berry Device Updater is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from mobile phone tools without restrictions.Black Berry Device Updater 188.8.131.52 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).Whether you own a new or old Black Berry device by Canadian Research in Motion, you may be able to perform an OS and firmware upgrade to your phone.Black Berry Device Updater can be helpful in keeping you up-to-date.
