    Anybody have a solution for updating the firmware of a BB 8100c pearl with a Mac OS? It appears the Pocketmac will not attach a .exe file after it was downloaded. Help!

    no you need either Parallels, boot camp, or a buddy with Windows.

    Nix Parallels... it sucks with BB and it's USB for some reason. VMWare Fusion, Boot Camp or a borrowed PC are the way to go.

    I found it was fine as long as you dedicate all USB directly to it to parallels. That's the way i did it.
