Linux and The Storm : successful phone upgrade.
Please Login to Remove!
Great news : I just successfully updated my 9500 phone using the Windows BB Desktop SW using Vista running as a guest of VirtualBox 3.0 on Debian Lenny. The only thing you have to do is to use the VBox SW toggle on the USB connections dialog at the bottom of the screen to force a disconnect and then reconnect when the SW freezes trying to reconnect.. Note that you have to use the "non free" version of Virtual Box to get USB support.
