Install OS 5.0 Betas From Your Mac Desktop Manager

Morrison let me know that he did up a nice video instructing users how to update to a different OS from their Mac. The problem is extracting the files from EXE files on a Mac and he has provided links to extracted DMG archives for the latest OS 5.0 leaks. The process basically involves installing a valid OS and they copying over the beta/Hybrid COD files into Library>application support>blackberry desktop>device application>… Check out the video below and the files beneath it:

  1. It’s so weird to see Mac users using or caring about BlackBerry’s. I would think they would only consider the “God” phone.

  2. I am not sure if the links for the 9630 i am downloading right now can be loaded to my phone.

  3. I’m using Mac Air

  4. When I go to device applications I only have one folder in there so I can’t even complete the whole tutorial. Would really like to get this working.

  5. My wife bought the iPhone for me since I am a Mac user. I tried it for a week. It was hard to switch from a qwerty setting to a touch screen, I couldn’t do the touch accurate enough.
    I took it back for the Bold.
    I use Missing Sync until all the bugs are worked out on the Rim release of the DM for MAC.

  6. Don’t do this, my bold got bricked by trying this. Now I have to go and find a PC to reload my software. I’m pretty sure I did this correctly as I’ve updated my berry countless times to beta builds and have a lot of experience playing around with these things.

  7. I can’t find any folder bearing ‘blackberry desktop’ after I got into application support. Just blackberry. No device application folder either. What’s on the ‘blackberry folder’ are the following: BBDaemon,
    BBLaunchAgent, and ‘Type your BlackBerry password’. So with this, I can’t really move further. Please help. Thanks.

  8. I create this video and the DMG files, this works 100% for Hybrids and or updating from 5.0.0.190 to 5.0.0.238 but to jump from 4.5 to 5.0 it will not work??? I am still testing as I have been for several days! Please be patient and any additional help would be very helpful….

    I don’t think the ALX files are needed?
