bfuse man page

bfuse — Create a FUSE filesystem out of BlackBerry databases.


bfuse mountpoint [options]


bfuse connects to your BlackBerry and turns its databases into a mounted filesystem using the FUSE filesystem library.  As such, it has a few basic arguments, and a list of common options supported by FUSE.

The device will remain in Desktop mode for as long as bfuse runs.

For more information on FUSE options, see
