    Question Any way to install 4.1 from Mac?

    Advertisement



    Hi folks,

    Is there any way to install 4.1 from a Mac or any other software for that matter.

    Or is there a way to just download the update from the BB and have it install that way? I've installed apps just by e-mailing them to my BB but can't find the OS update.

    Try PocketMac http://www.pocketmac.net/products/pm...rry/index.html for synching apps. I am not sure about OS 4.1. The list of compatible BB's is at the bottom of the page.

    I have PocketMac. It is just for syncing, not for installing apps or OS updates.

    Oh ok. There are several Mac users on this forum. I just don't know how or if they upgraded.

    Unless you run an Intel Mac with Boot Camp you SOL. Until RIM offers OTA installs of the OS you'll require a PC. I use my work notebook. Unfortunately there's no other way...

    Treo, that's my take too. I have 4.1 already installed, but when the next upgrade is released I'll yhave to use a Winders box to do the install.

    Bummer... Until someone improves Mac support.

    If all goes well with 4.2 we'll see media streaming as well as OTA OS installs, something GOOD has offered to it's users for some time. The wait begins...
