Re: Updating Blackberry Curve 8520 to OS6

Hi I am from South Africa and I don't think that its a good idea to upgrade the 8520 to OS6 due to the fact that RIM International personally said that their will never be a OS6 update for 8520, the youtube link that gives you the option to update is an unofficial link, therefore problems will occur, remember app world shows which app is compatible with which model and OS.

Go on Youtube and type in "Blackberry Curve 8520 OS 6" and there should be a few videos with instructions and a web link :smileyhappy:

Re: Updating Blackberry Curve 8520 to OS6

"www.bbthemelab.com/s/44behe" does not give you OS6 for 8520 but provides you with a Free OS6 Theme, the only downfall of this Theme for 8520 is that it does not give 8520 users the Tray.

No, there is not and won't be any OS6 for the 8520 model, as was stated here a year ago, in this very same thread and in dozens more in this forum.
