    Update 8100 OS via Mac

    Advertisement



    Ok so I have been looking around and have not found anything to answer my questions about updating my 8100 OS. I have v. 4.2.0.64 and have read that there is a newer OS avail. I am unsure how to do that via a mac. I am also wondering what it does to my BB. Does it wipe the memory and I am left with basically new BB or does it just upgrade and do it's thing... similar to an iPod? Anyone who has a Mac and upgraded using it please share your stories. I have had no problems for the most part so perhaps I should just stay where I am?

    I am looking for step by step instructions.
    Thanks in advance!

    The only way to do the update would be either use a PC, or Bootcamp, Parallels, or VMWare with a Windows install CD on the Mac.

    what it does is just like on your Mac when you upgraded from 10.3 to 10.4, it's an operating system upgrade.

    Thanks for the quick reply, cliffr39! That is what I thought but was unsure. Why is mac so undersupported in the BB world? Does anyone know? is RIM working on this?

    unfortunately it's not undersupported with just BB's but everything... but Mac's are becoming much more popular and I still believe that one day will be just as supported as PC's (granted it might be 20 years from now lol)
