Wipe and Reinstall OS 6 on a Mac?
Hey Crackberry! I was just wondering if there is anything I could use to wipe and reload os 6 on my 9650 using a Mac. All of the applications I have seen so far have been for Windows only. Would it be ok to use desktop manager? Or should I ask one of my roommates to use their PC laptops? If I used one of my my roommates laptops, it wouldnt affect the next time I plugged my phone into my Mac would it? Thanks for any and all assistance guys, youre the best

You could set up a virtual window environment on your mac and run the program of your choice. But I think you would be better off to use one of your roommates PCs. It would be much easier IMO. It shouldn't affect your device the next time you plug it into your mac.

I also have a MacBook Pro. I don't believe there's a way to upgrade/downgrade OS' without using Bootcamp, VMWare Fusion, Parraells, or another similar program. Bootcamp is free and comes with your Mac, however the downfall is you cannot run Windows and OSx together at the same time. I prefer and have downloaded VMware Fusion. It allows you to run Windows and the Mac OSx side by side; thus permitting you to use BlackBerry Desktop Manager to downgrade/upgrade.
Bootcamp is free, the others cost; however I found a great and some-what simple way to get a legit key and program of VMWare Fusion.
If you're interested, please post here and I will find an appropriate way in showing you the steps. Good luck, hope this helps.

Like otheers have said the Mac process is not simple. My MacBook Pro runs Win7 under Bootcamp just for BB use. At work a PC serves the same functions. DM on Mac is fine for some purposes but I prefer BBSAK for app backup along with wipe and OS install. Windows is a necessary evil to keep the BB in tiptop shape for me.
