Updating blackberry bold os
To start a new operating system install, you'll need your Black Berry, an Internet-connected PC, a USB cable and about an hour and half of free time—50 minutes or an hour for the upgrade process and 30 minutes or catch-up time afterwards.
Mac users beware: RIM doesn't currently offer the Black Berry Desktop Manager software for Apple computers; however, industrious Mac owners running Parallels and who have a copy of Windows have been able to upgrade their Black Berrys via Macs, though the process can be a bit clumsy.
Many third-party apps will also require you to reenter your user name and password, so you may want to make note of which apps require a login and make sure you've access to the necessary information.
For example, your Viigo RSS reader will prompt you for login information the first time you try to use it, as will Facebook for Black Berry, your Twitter client and the Flickr app.
