Impossible. You will need a Windows box or an Intel Mac with BootCamp. I am not sure if the update would work using Parallels or VMWare Fusion.

WOW! Will that invalidate my original setting w/ Cingular if I install it? (I would love to be able to read Chinese on it)
I know it's from Cingular...but will I get to keep all the original setting and apps loaded? how about addresses, wallpaper...etc?

Why does Cingular have it listed as a 8800g?? I thought tmo had the exclusive on the "g" and Cingular on the "c" while Verizon and Sprint share the proceeds of the "e", then Rogers has the "r". LOL

T-Mobile has no exclusivity on the letter g. The g stands for generic.

You will not benefit from this release as there is usually a separate upgrade which includes Chinese language support. And as far as I know this release is the same with thich the devices were shipped.

And because this question will come up next.....

To install this OS make sure the BB is not plugged in and follow these steps:

1. Download and install to your PC Desktop Manager 4.2 SP1 from Here

2. Download and install to your PC the OS posted above from Here

3. Delete vendor.xml from your PC's hard drive located in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader

*Note: Step 3 is not always necessary but ensures that the OS will install on any brand of 8800 (currently Cingular's is all that's available)

4. Plug in BB and Open Desktop Manager. You will be prompted to upgrade.

This is the version that shipped. Application version on mine is 4.2.1.72 and Platform is 2.3.0.54. So, just to be clear, there's no reason to apply this, because it's the version you already have.

If you are only looking for the Chinese language support, than give it a try. If you get Chinese listed than install it, else you can cancel it without changing anything.

Of course it will be interesting to see what other vendor themes are in here? Did you see any of interest?
