Firmware Update ( Programatically)

Hi,

 

I am not sure if there exists any way to Update the Firmware of the Blackberry Device OTA.

 

A small utility which can check if any (OS) update for the phone exists ? If it does  download that OTA.

I checked JDE Documentation but could not find any information for the same.

 

Regards,

Nirav

Update the firmware from your third party application?

Use Search. "Accept Solution" If the problem is resolved.

Re: Firmware Update ( Programatically)

OTA firmware update is possible in newer OS versions and countries where RIM supports it.
you won't be able to do this from a 3rd party application.

Re: Firmware Update ( Programatically)

Hi,

 

thanks for the reply. But can you give more information about how a 3rd party application can initiate the Sofware Upgrade process automatically. And where can I find more info. about this like which countries are supported for this ?

 

Regards,

Re: Firmware Update ( Programatically)

Sadly NO, But IMHO this power shouldn't be provided to third party applications. :-)
