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.
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
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.
