Adubk_I don't use a Mac but I know this has been on a lot of threads. I did some research and found this link. I'm not at all familar with Mac's but I believe I'd start here with a new BB DM download and go from there. Hope this works for you. Good Luck!
BlackBerry - Desktop Software for Mac

Yeah I wondered the same thing. I'm on a 13" Macbook 1 and as we Mac users know, Macs run .dmg files (disk image files) where Windows would normally run .exe. You download an .exe on a Mac and it does a whole WTF ?! thing. You can download desktop manager for Mac but I guess unless there is an actual update out, you can't get a leaked version because they are all .exe's. Anyone have any links to .dmg files we can use? Thanks

You cannot upgrade to any OS not from your carrier using OS X.
You will need to run Windows (via BootCamp, in a virtual machine, or borrow a PC).--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

Actually just found this link: it states you clearly cannot install a leaked OS on a Mac for the reasons I stated above:
Sorry. Hopefully something works out for you. I had an extra windows computer sitting around so I used this page for that.

So what is the link I posted above for? ( BlackBerry - Desktop Software for Mac )
Again, I'm not a MAC user so I'm not familar with the workings of it. Just curious that's all and hoping to help someone on here.
