Default Any more ways of updating a Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm just trying to find out if there are any ways of updating a Blackberry without the official desktop software or the wireless update feature on the device. If so, please link me to how I may do that.

Thanks

Supposedly there is a third way of updating the OS via the web: BlackBerry - Software Updates - New Update Software for BlackBerry Smart Phones

Never tried it myself though.

If you're trying to upgrade a device without having a BB data, plan these is a workaround. I had ordered a bunch of 9330 devices and all but about 8 of them came with OS 6 installed. I wanted to install OS6 on the 8 devices to keep them all consistent. However, I didn't want to activate them before doing this, thus moving the user's number to this device and leaving them without a working device.

To accomplish this, I did the following:

Open Desktop Manager and go through like you are going to upgrade. You will come to a screen stating that you need a BlackBerry data plan to upgrade. Leave DM on that screen.

Once DM is showing that screen, launch Loader.exe and go through the upgrade process. It should complete the upgrade without any issues.

Remember to delete the vendor.xml file before trying to upgrade.
