Updating blackberry 8310 os
Then click the Help tab on the main screen and choose About Black Berry Desktop Manager.
The software version will be listed on the General tab.
Mac users beware: RIM doesn't currently offer the Black Berry Desktop Manager software for Apple computers; however, industrious Mac owners running Parallels and who have a copy of Windows have been able to upgrade their Black Berrys via Macs, though the process can be a bit clumsy.
If you've got all the necessary tools listed above, the Black Berry OS install process should be a breeze. First things first, you'll want to download the new Black Berry OS and save it to your PC.
The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Back when I was using an 8800 we did that kind of thing as much as possible because memory was so short.
Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization." If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run again and it should load the OS to the device. If you do a search you can probably find the instructions for doing it.
