Re: is it possible to update os?

Hello,

 

It is possible to update your BB to any OS level that has been released by any carrier for your specific model BB. You can use this procedure:

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

 

You will have to research what versions different carriers have released for your model BB.

 

Good luck!
