Re: UPGRADE OS 5 to OS 6

Hello,

 

I think your best guidance will come from the public announcement from RIM about OS 6 availability:

 

Good luck!

Hello,

 

You can install (upgrade, downgrade, reload) any OS package that is compatible with your BB model number via this procedure:

If you choose to use an OS package that is from a carrier that is not your BB's original carrier, then insert, between steps 1 and 2, the deletion, on your PC, of a file named VENDOR.XML.

 

Sorry, but via MAC, there is no ability to use these OS packages and I believe further that you are restricted to only those OS packages released by your carrier.

 

Good luck!

Im running OS6 on a Pearl 3g 9105

 

It works very smoothly; with some minor bugs.  

Though i am unable to use the browser through my wifi connection.. the only problem i am running into so far!

 

So hopefully they will release an official OS 6

Re: UPGRADE OS 5 to OS 6

As far as I know RIM has not yet officially released OS 6 for 9300.

 

RIM - Everyone is so eager for 6. Launch it soon for public users.

 

Thanks.
