Default How to upgrade OS on my BOLD with PocketMac?

Please Login to Remove!

I downloaded the latest version of PocketMac onto my MacBook Air. I currently have v4.6.0.167 with .157 platform (which I believe is the same OS out of the box). Therefore, In addition I downloaded the latest OS: 9000 Bold 4.6.0.477/4.6.0.282.
However, I dont see the option to load the new OS using PocketMac.
Can someone please help?

You can't.
You need a Windows machine with Desktop Manager to upgrade to 4.6.0.282.

Sorry but that can't be done. I would recommend you to install Windows via Bootcamp, then you can use Crack Util and JL_Cmder in case you need them. (well, at least I did).
Not sure Vmware or Parallel work, never tried before.

VMWare is better than Parallels from what I have read.

Check the MAC section.

Wirelessly posted (VZW Storm, ATT Bold)

Parallels has issues seeing the phone when its plugged in. Vmware is better for this application
