i just got the 8530 and connected it to my mac desktop manager to update all the applications. i got the following message while doing so and have no idea what it means:
BlackBerry® Desktop Manager failed to validate your BlackBerry® device update.
Failed to validate OS image file: /Users/Louis/Library/Application Support/BlackBerryDesktop/Device Applications/a0a1ef2ed4ae31318fcd2b91d9f12a316ca6706a/rim0x05000F04j.sfi
i believe i have v126.96.36.1998, which it says i have in the About page, and platform 188.8.131.524, whatever that is.
how can i fix the problem and update all the applications?

You can do a OTA software upgrade, though it may take a while. You can customize the download and remove any app's or extra's that you don't need, such as foreign language support, games, etc. This will reduce the size of the download.
I had a windows laptop available and so I ended up doing the upgrade through DM that way.
You may also want to try and remove DM from the Mac and reinstall and see if that may help.
