Updating BlackBerry OS – v4.6.0.29

For those that are updating their BlackBerry to the new OS, please be very patient with it.

Whether it is version v4.6.0.29 or v4.5.0.81

The process takes FOREVER to finish. Expect about an hour.

If you get the screen – “Waiting for device to restart” do not touch it, – this process takes about 30 mins. MINIMUM.

Rather, go have a coffee, then dinner, then ice cream – and it’ll be all ready to go afterwards.


Happy updating

Installing ColdFusion9, MAMP, Snow Leopard [UPDATED – 10/29/2009]

There’s 2 types of Installs. The first one will go with “Single Install”

For this install, I tried it with MAMP 1.8.2

1) Go to System Preferences/Sharing. Uncheck Web Sharing – This ensures that you’re not using Snow Leopards’s Apache 2 server

2) Download & Install MAMP 1.8.2

3) Click on the Properties of MAMP, & remove the “/MAMP/” from the settings. Also, use default ports, 80 & 3306.

4) On the last tap, type the place where you’re going to isntall ColdFusion. ie. I used /usr/username/sites

5) Install ColdFusion 9. When the time comes to install the webserver, have the following parameters inputted

Configuration Directory:

Directory & Filter name of Server binary:

Directory & File Name of server script:

Make sure that you’ve put the Administrator to where you set yoru webroot pointed from MAMP

6) Open a Terminal Window.

cd /Applications/ColdFusion9/runtime/lib

unzip – d src wsconfig.jar

Restart your computer

go to localhost/cfide/administrator – should commence the ColdFusion 9 configuration it self.

THIS DOESN’T WORK, and the main problem lies in the conf/httpd.conf

This line doesn’t execute with MAMP

LoadModule jrun_module /Applications/JRun4/lib/wsconfig/1/ within Snow Leopard.


More Reasons

MAMP is a 32 BIT program, and when CF9 was installed, it installed the 64 BIT connectors.


Have a look at this awesome video –

There’s option in the Web Server Configuration dialog for configuring 32 BIT version of connect on 64 BIT OS – running 32bit web server. From command line, provide ‘ws32=true’ to configure 32 bit connector


Multi-Server Install. I didn’t use MAMP’s apache with this install.

1) Make sure Web Sharing is ON – in the System Preferences

2) Install ColdFusion 9

Configuration Directory:

Directory & Filter name of Server binary:

Directory & File Name of server script:

3) Open a Terminal Window

cd /Applications/JRun4/Lib

unzip -d src wsconfigjar

4) Restart your Computer

5) go to Localhost/cfide/administrator – should commence the ColdFusion 9 configuration itself.
