    Is updating your BlackBerry's OS by downloading zip files/bar files from the internet safe? Because you find that the files from the internet have a larger/smaller size compared to the size of the OS that you are given when simply checking for updates in settings.. I would download the OS by simply clicking "Update" but my mobile carrier won't allow it, also WiFi is rare in these parts.. PLEASE ASSIST

    Safe for your BlackBerry device? Yes, since your device will not run an OS that has not been cryptographically signed by BlackBerry.

    Safe for your PC? Less so. Carries the same risk as downloading any other random PC software off the Internet.

    To quote from one of Jaydee5799's posts:
    The Core OS is just the OS.
    The Debrick is the OS with all the apps as well, bbm, foursquare, bbve, languages, voice assistant etc. That's why the Debrick file is about 1.2GB in size.
    The radio is obviously just the software component that handles accessing the device's radio for making cell calls, data, wifi etc.

    To install an OS for general use, just get an autoloader. See this thread for details.
