Re: BB 9790 firmware download problem via Desktop software

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

You can bypass the Desktop Software automated download by, outside of the Desktop Software, first downloading, from the official download portal, the OS package you desire:

Then, install that package to your PC. (If the package is from other than your carrier, you will need to delete the VENDOR.XML files.) Now run the Desktop Software and it should offer you this specific BB OS update.

 

Good luck!
