Hi all,

I read a post on here where a forensic investigator used old Bb desktop software on a newer BB to bypass the password on a locked BB. I am working a private case and I need to get the old BB software ( Version 3.5a) which only recognizes serial ports to connect to a newer BB 8800C.

USB-Serial cables do not work because they are not "backwards compatible" with data. I cannot find no direct hardware connection that goes from USB right to serial port, unless you use the adapter, which does not solve problem.

Anyone know how to get non-USB BB desktop software to connect to a non-serial port USB BB?

Any help or comments appreciated.

Why not just upgrade the DESKTOP SOFTWARE only? This will be backwards compatible, should work with any USB Blackberry, and should sync up so you can get the data off...unless I am misunderstanding your question. Not sure about your password issue.

You can get 3.5a direct from BlackBerry here:
