I have several clients/friends that have Blackberry and wish to update their phone but without installing Windows. Any windows. Just doing it from Ubuntu. How can this be done. The update the mention is for the firmware and new programs for the phone. I do not know much about Blackberries since am more of an android guy. At the end they want support for upgrade/update the Blackberry from within Linux and sync it to the PC (Backups, upload/download stuff to and from it).
I have seen 2 types of projects working on this:
Linberry (From Venezuela ;) ) - http://linberry.webcindario.com/
but so far neither offers updating the firmware or downloading updates. Are there any Ubuntu blackberry projects I am not aware of.
