    Help with 5.0 upgrade please!

    I've been trying to update to the official release since 10p last night on my Mac.

    I've tried several times. Twice receiving the 5XX error of reloading my software. Then I was able to downgrade back to 4.7. At one point I've managed to get it to boot up all the way and then give me the app error which just caused resets.

    I've deleted the software on my Mac and re-downloaded it a million times. I've also read through the How To Un-Brick on Mac steps. Nothing is working for me. I still cannot get this dumb software onto my phone. I've been trying to read the forums and I know others have had the same problem but no "clear step-by-step" response.

    My latest error I'm getting on my Mac is "Failed to validate OS image file: Application Support/BlackBerryDesktop/Device Applications/feb2ff4c400c5cfe5379d1e45609319f1996c020/rim0x04001404.sfi"

    WTF does this mean?!?

    Any help that will lead to zero-more problems?
    (And by help I mean not wasting your time responding to this telling me to go to a different thread or any negativeness)

    I've tried posting this on Crackberry and so far, no luck. Since this community seems to be a bit nicer, I thought I'd give it a try.

    first thing is first you will never never get any of that here its zero tolerance on it. SO no negative here... now with that said first are you using the official through DM or did you download it? I am not a huge mac guy but we have a few here that are great. welcome to

    Well thanks for the kind welcome-ness. And yes, I've been trying to download it through DM. I'm not sure how to do it manually on a Mac and I've tried downloading it through Verizon but their page was all messed up - maybe because of the large amounts of people rushing to download.

    jmf, welcome to !!! We do not tolerate any bashing here, so please feel free to ask questions. We will find a solution if it exists...unless of course RIM messed up Hang in there, we have a few Mac pro's.
