Uploading new OS with MAC
 
Hey,

I am trying to upload new OS for my 9700 and wanted to know how to do that with a MAC????

I am looking for the newest version but with Japanese input and reader.

Thanks!

Do you have the latest DM version for the Mac? I think I read someplace where that was included, but you need to check on Rim's website to be certain.

Otherwise, find a friend with a PC or use Parallels or BootCamp to set up a Windows instance on the Mac and use the PC version of DM.

When I open the DM it says there is an option to have it check every time, but I will check for an updated version as well.

Yeah I will have to add parallels I guess.

Thanks!

Using parallels or bootcamp is the best choice. I was trying to upgrade OS with mac and just lost time. On windows all worked perfectly.

BE VERY CAREFUL with Parallels 5 Desktop. I used it without BootCamp installed and I find during the firmware upgrade (february's build) that even with USB set to auto use in Parallels, it was not quick enough to detect the 9700 upon restarting during the firmware upgrade. I was NOT happy with that.

Still give it a try.
