Hi yatishkirori

 

 

Yes you can Update your Curve 8520 to OS5  , Try those steps:

 

1.Locate your Carrier  and Download the OS  from here Software Download Site. 

  • (make sure you are downloading for the same model as you have )

 2. Now Double the file that you Downloaded to Install it on your PC

 

3. Download and install the latest BlackBerry desktop software from here BlackBerry desktop software

  • Then using desktop software perform your full backup of your device.

 4. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. (For 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path       will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader) double click Loader.exe

 

Update will continue and follow the onscreen directions. But remember if you use any other carrier OS pack then yours , you have to delete two or three vendor .xml files . But your carrier Airtel ( Bharti Airtel ) have already released OS5 for your device model so download that OS and install that on your PC , and follow the above instructions to update your device.

 

So try and let us know of your progress.
