We have written many articles on BlackBerry android but from our forum and whatsapp.
There is need to write on other BlackBerry apart from android. We have people still using those phones and they need to keep it running.


To flash old BlackBerry phones follow these steps.

 You have 4 options: 

a) Download BlackBerry Desktop manage and connect the phone.
b) Download any BlackBerry 9900 RIM software and delete Vendor to enable it flash.
