Blackberry for the rest of us
I provide consulting and development services. See for more info.

Berry4all - Blackberry support for the rest of us

Berry4All is a free, open-source software for using your Blackberry on alternative OS'es (Linux, OSX...)
Formerly known as BBTether.
Berry4All is released under the Artistic License.


Right now the main feature of Berry4all is tethering (use the blackberry as a modem)

It has been tested on multiple versions of Linux and OS X

More features are planned for later (install apps, sync etc...)

It is fairly easy to install since it's written in Python and does not need to be compiled.
