Re: 9300 OS 6 update

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

From a PC, you can install any compatible (e.g., for your exact BB Model Number) OS package to a BB via this procedure:

 

 

Note that while written for "reload" and the Storm, it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload any BB device model -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. You can even use a different carriers OS package by simply inserting, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML. Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure. 


At the top of this forum, there should be a "sticky" thread, authored by Xandrex, that will list all of the available OS levels from all carriers.

 

If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:

Good luck and let us know!
