    Are you trying to update to an OS released by your carrier?

    Unfortunately, updating OSes for Blackberrys still REQUIRES a Windows machine.

    Either a bootcamp, a virtual install, or an actual PC will be required, unless you're wanting an Official carrier release, then you can use Desktop Manager for Mac.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

    I think it's possible to update to a non-official OS with Mac DM but I don't remember how.

    CB had a video walkthrough on it a while back though.
