    What's up every one! I want to know is it possible to upgrade my os over the air. I don't have a computer right now but I want to upgrade, currently I have the .64 os. And will I lose anything in the process? Thanks

    Not possible as you'd need a working OS w/ a TCP stack to download and upgrade it.

    You'll have to find a computer I'm afraid .. sorry. :/

    I am in the same boat. I don't have a home PC right now and at work I am on a government computer that we cant plug stuff into...we should start a "old school OS" club!! I think you should be able to go into your providers shop and pick up a CD when updates come out...just my 2cents

    Just a reminder, do not under any circumstance download the OS to the BB from the BB browser. In some instances it is possible and seriously bricks the phone.

    Best we could do for now is make a thread in the BB8100 forum and we could make it sticky until there will be enough user to start a forum...

    Let me know if there's anything guys
    I'm french canadian so I can also help you in french, just PM me
    UNLESS it is for a BETA OS, it's at your own risk and I won't support it

    OTA OS upgrades will be possible when BES 5.0 comes out, but then you'd have to be on a company BES

    I see yeah anybody would be dying to get out of .94 is ancient. Go to a internet cafe for less than 5 bucks you can use a pc for an hour and that's all u need.

    I doubt there will ever be OTA upgrades. It's usually 70mbs and you still need to backup the device to even upgrade. If you don't backup the device then you're just asking for trouble. This is a terrible idea. There's enough trouble with people trying to upgrade just using their PC. Adding a whole new option would just be a bad idea.

    Re: upgrade os ota ?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i am a new BB pearl user. So howdy! What is this upgrade about? One thing that would make my pearl the best thing since sliced bread would be if I could dl the realplayer superpass and be able to see big brother 8 live feeds! I have it on pc but boy oh boy if I could have it on my baby I would be on cloud 9!! Any suggestions?
