Re: 4.5 Update

This is same as for windows OS.

  1. download and install install Desktop Manager for MAC
  2. download and install the device Os 4.5 in your computer
  3. connect your device via USB and click upgrade when receive update prompt


You'll not be able to take the advantage of BlackBerry web update asthat's not supported for Mac OS.

Re: 4.5 Update

I am not aware of any method to upgrade the OS using PocketMac.


You must use Desktop Manager connected to a PC.
