How To Manually Update Your Blackberry
Sometimes we need to perform a software update on individual Blackberrys without installing Blackberry Desktop Software on a user’s PC or updating wirelessly (mostly due to data usage restrictions).
It is possible to manually download and run the update:
First, get the latest version of the software from Blackberry for your provider. Some UK links are here:
Once download, run the file and install the program.
Next, plug in the phone via a USB cable and select USB mode on the phone.
On your PC browse to Program Files à Common Files à Research In Motion à AppLoader.
Run the Loader software and this should update your BlackBerry.
