SUCCESS! Updated OS from MAC alone
After bricking my first 9700 the 2nd day I had it I spent untold hours on the line with Parallels. They KNOW there are problems with USB ports and blackberrys.
Last night I finally risked the OS load using DM for MAC. It was a little scary at times. It left the device without icons, just a list of apps. BUT I loaded .405 and it WORKED!!!
Mostly I wanted to cure the idiotic sms/address bug. Not sure yet.
I thought battery life with .330 was awesome compared to 9000.
I'm THRILLED to finally be able to update without Parallels/Windows.
Nice! Thanks for the update.
Ok. So it is the next day. Rebooted during the night but the default OS was doing that so I attribute it to something 3rd party.
BUT, the battery life is great and the SMS bug is gone!!
This is GREAT news! When the Mac Desktop Manager was originally released (I never messed around with the beta client) I tried updating the OS on my Tour and it screwed up royally. I spend many hours on a pc to restore it with JL_Commander, JavaLoader, and the Windows version of Desktop Manager. Not fun.
The Mac client has been terrific for everything else so this failure was a complete shock to me. Maybe I'll try it again when the next significant update comes out.Tour
I have been trying to go to .415 all day. Brick after brick. MANY things tried. I have a strange feeling that the DM update to 1.0.2 BREAKS the ability to add OS's.
Does anyone have a copy of mac dm 1.0.1???
I need to test it.
