I looked for a single web page that summarized how to upgrade OpenSolaris from one of the released version to the latest /dev (currently B109). I couldn't find a consolidated answer so here is my version.

$ pkg set-authority -O http://pkg.opensolaris.org/dev dev
$ BUILD=`uname -v | sed -e "s/snv_//" -e "s/[a-z]//"`
$ pfexec pkg refresh
$ pfexec pkg install entire@0.5.11-0.${BUILD}
$ pfexec pkg install SUNWipkg@0.5.11-0.${BUILD}
$ pfexec pkg install SUNWinstall-libs 
$ pfexec pkg image-update
