wil BBSAK work on the BB Torch?
Very usefull link and info thnx buddy, I live in Dubai, UAE and use "Etisalat" as Cellular Service Provider. after reading (and watching vid) it carefully, it took my hardly 10 to 15min to upgrade to OS v22.214.171.1247 (Bundle 1728, Platform 126.96.36.199) on my Bold 9000, and it really worked PERFECTLY well and it gave me 44mb app space too, i dnt use many apps just whatsapp, screenshort really. its been about 15 hours now. i have done such thing 1st time, im glad i found this step by step link.
well as a newbie i have question, i hope someone can asnwer tht, once i hve installed it all and it went all good, now when it comes to restoring the "backup" you only mentioned to restore thro BBSAK (third party apps only) but u didnt mention restoring the "backup" which we did thro DM? Can we also restore "backup" which we did through DM?
I asked this question coz i restored backup ONLY thro BBSAK and notepad/quicknotes, and BB maps, and few other standard apps were missing and it didnt restore from my backed up thro BBSAK, then i even restored backup which i did through DM but it alwayz failed. now i dnt know what to do. any suggestions? please, thanks in advance

I backup my Torch through DM at least every other day, only because I don't want to loose any information. So, backup your device through DM and your 3rd party apps through BBSAK as often as you like.
I would first backup via DM and then go to BBSAK for 3rd party app backup.
If you tried to restore via DM and did not get everything back, I'd give it a second try to see what would happen. It seems to me the if the device was backed up using DM, then it should restore with no issues.
Let us know what happens.
well i normally backup and sync my bold 9000 through DM almost every other day too, but this time, after installing OS v188.8.131.527 (Bundle 1728, Platform 184.108.40.206) through your step by step instuctions here in this link, which went quite well coz it said it may take 20 - 60 min while it took me hardly 10 to 15min which was a pleasant surprize
but the issue is i did BBSAK backup FIRST as i thought u didnt mention DM (so id request u to edit the steps there and add DM backup before BBSAK backup for a newbie like me )
well i did try to restore from DM backup atleast 5 times bt everytime it get stuck while restoring is almost 56% done at BB PIN back up upload tho.... and then i waited and waited for good half hour, but nothing happend, so i dicsonnected my device frm laptop and bat pull up and tried atlest 5 times... every time it gets stuck at the same stage. and i so need GPS, bb Maps, world app, and notepad/quick notes. which is missing.....
anyway its abt 9pm here and tomorrow sunday 15th may, is 1st working day of th week. so i gotta catch on some sleep, but i am planning to do the whole thing all over again starting from scratch, lets see how it goes... i will keep u posted.
one more quick question, wld "bb application center" will work on my bb bold 9000 with this OS v220.127.116.117 (Bundle 1728, Platform 18.104.22.168) ??? coz if it wont work so i wont install it...
once again really thankful to your help....
one last question, i knw it'll be bit silly to ask bt do you have any idea whn BB are launching OS 7 with any latest Torch? since i am planning to buy new BB so i need advice which one is better... thank you soooo muchhh for a great job your diong here
As far as OS7? Check this thread;RIM Co-CEO Jim Balsillie Confirms OS 6.1 to be called BlackBerry OS 7
Good luck and keep us up to date on your results.
neo i just use the bbsak to backup my third party apps. but it seems like it's not complete because the box saying 3rd Party Apps Backup complete never show up. so how i want know the backup are already finish or not.. even I'm waiting for 3 hours the box never show out.
