    I bought a BlackBerry Pearl 8110 and also download PocketMac from BlackBerry's official site. I put the latest OS on the BlackBerry and installed the latest PocketMac version + the USB drive as instructed to by the BlackBerry site. I'm trying to install this bphone theme (iPhone look-alike) and PocketMac just hangs. I checked it, and it is not responding. Any help?

    Seems to have a problem opening /dev/cu.blackberry as it hangs thereafter in console.

    Just follow the instructions on this website and you'll be fine.

    Remember:

    a) Restart Macbook after you are done deleting the files.
    b) Install Pocketmac and click on Quit once you are through.
    c) Install Drivers for new MacbookPros and then eventually reboot.

    As stupid as it may sound, I actually installed Windows XP thru Fusion and ran the native BlackBerry Software on that. It's pretty fast, and much better than tinkering around with PocketMac.
