    There is a process given in the official BlackBerry forums:

    If you really want to update your device, I'd suggest you do a "fresh" OS install using the following instructions:
    - Use Desktop Manager to back up your device.
    - Close Desktop Manager and disconnect your device.
    - Download an app to your PC called BBSAK (BlackBerry Swiss Army Knife). You will use this to wipe the OS from your device. You can get it here: www.bbsak.org
    - Download the most current OS for your device, which you can get here. https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...B931C35A169B0\

    - Connect your device to your PC and launch BBSAK. It will ask you for a password. If you don't have one set for your device, just click OK.
    Choose the option to Wipe Device. When completed, you will be left with a white screen and an app error 507, which means the wipe was successful.
    - Disconnect your device.
    - On your PC, navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research in Motion\AppLoader. Delete the file at the bottom called vendor.xml.
    - Connect your device.
    -. In that same folder as above, there's an executable file called Loader (has a little phone next to it). Double click on that and it will start loading your OS.
    - You'll have to reinstall and 3rd party apps you had, keeping in mind that if you're on OS 5 right now, some of your apps might not be compatible with OS 6, in which case you'll need to also update those in addition to reinstalling.
