Sachesi for Blackberry on Linux (Ubuntu) 1

The one really cool thing about the Sachesi tool is that you can do a non-destructive software upgrade on Linux, Windows or Mac without the need for Blackberry Link.

The one big downside is when you get Sachesi telling you that it’s searching for a USB connected device and it can’t be found.


As it turns out it’s quite a simple fix.  I tried turning on Development Mode, no go.  Connecting as Windows and as Mac, no go.  The way to do it is turn off development mode, turn off Mass USB and set it to Auto connection.

Now when you connect it to the machine it will ask your PC for an IP address to set itself up as a network device on your USB port.  At this point, Sachesi can now detect and use it.

    My BB Z10 got stuck while rebooting. I’m trying to use Sachesi autoloader to install the OS again. Now, the autoloader is not detecting my device. I can’t even change the setting of my phone to auto detect the usb because my phone just won’t start. Any suggestions?
