Default Upgrade BB OS over air from BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

Is it possible to push a local BB handheld OS upgrade out to handhelds from BES 4.0 or 4.1? I realize that this could create more problems than it solves, but I'm wondering if it's possible nonetheless.

Thanks

Not currently, no. I know that it was being worked on, but I'm sure the importance of it has slipped over the last 2+ years. I don't really see a single handheld they have as being capable of doing this, unless it were to download a compressed version of the OS (not much compression available) to ROM memory.

That's what I figured would be the case. Upgrading OS's over the air isn't something to be taken lightly, so I'm glad they're not just pushing the feature into BES and hoping for the best. Implemented well it would be a godsend. Implemented poorly and I'd be dealing with a lot of bricked handhelds all over the place.

It is supposed to be something that will be available in BES 5.0. It that actually happens or not remains to be seen.
