Nope; you can't load software from one line onto another. Been tried before.

What would you gain by having it (if successful)?

You will render the BlackBerry useless and you'll have to use JL_CMDER or Javaloader to manually delete the handheld OS. It's been tried before. 7290 code on a 7230 (different devices). The closest anyone came is putting PART of the 8700 code on an 8707. But the major difference there was CDMA vs. GPRS.
