    I think you'll have to bootcamp if you want to use any of the available .exe files...

    Blackberry and Mac dont work too well together, you will have to bootcamp into windows. As long as its XP or higher you shouldnt run into any issues

    Can't you load it from your BB by going to BBOS on your browser? That would make the Mac a non-issue.

    Unfortunately the operating system downloads are not over the air files.

    My bad, I read the question to quick, didn't realize he was trying to load an O/S. Sorry.

    The best way is to avoid the mac altogether. I use a mac as my main computer, but I use my old Dell laptop whenever I upgrade--also because I use shrinkOS. You may not have a PC but you must know someone who does...

    Also, the few times I tried to use my mac, I got a startup error on my Storm. Not so using a PC. To answer your questions: it is possible, but you can't really control it. Mac DM checks for official releases/updates automatically (from what I understand).
