    You'll need to find a PC to use or set up a Windows partition on your Mac. Sorry!

    I believe there was an announcement recently, however, that RIM will be releasing more tools for Mac users and the ability to use the Desktop Manager seems like a logical choice!

    News Flash! (If I'm not behind in just one single day.) I spoke with a help
    technician via our AT&T 611 help line. After resolving a problem we had I inquired
    with the agent when AT&T was going to release our BB DM v4.5 officially for us to
    use. She told me she's been using it for over a month and it IS already Officially
    released to download from blackberry's site. (I didn't know this just in case some
    of you already did)

    Sparky, It's a New Day!

    Kinda wishing I hadn't bought an 8820 now. Seems amazing that what was basically their flagship phone early this year is the last to get an OS upgrade.

    Cath,

    Make sure the 4.2 OS is on you PC and delete the 4.5 OS from the PC, connect the device to the PC, launch DM and it should prompt you for the downgrade.

    Just use the Vodafone Australia version, link in my signature.
    7105t -> 8320 -> Storm2 (returned, yuck!) -> 9700 - at&t - 5.0.0.536

    Do you think there would be any issues using the Vodafone 8820 4.5 software on a T-mobile phone?

    No, there should be no issue. OS's are device specific. Doesn't matter what carrier they come from as long as you follow these instructions.

    If you're using a media card, I would suggest removing that from the device prior to the upgrade process.

    Okay, let's take this from the top, then, shall we?

    1. Do a backup of your device.
    2. Completely wipe your device using the instructions in this thread.
    3. Uninstall the device OS from your PC.
    4. Uninstall the Desktop Manager from your PC (and then follow the instructions in this thread).
    5. Reboot your PC.
    6. Download and install Desktop Manager 4.6.
    7. Download and install whatever device software you wish to upgrade to.
    8. Reboot your PC.
    9. Delete the vendor.xml file from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader.
    10. If you're running Vista, disable the User Account Control (UAC) in Control Panel>User Accounts.
    11. Connect your device to the PC.
    12. Launch Desktop Manager.

    Hopefully from this point you'll be able to insall the OS and restore your data using the backup you created in step 1.
