Sachesi for Blackberry on Linux (Ubuntu)

By Geekphreek

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.
