I'm trying to update my BB 8520 because it's been playing up (again) and I've tried using the desktop manger to update it but it doesn't seem to let me complete the update even though it says there is one. Is there anyway of updating it through the internet like a website or something, or does it have to be through the desktop manager?

See the link below for the download, and follow these simple installation instructions.
First locate your carrier and the OS file you wish to use.
Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.
1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.
