You must install the hybrid onto your PC and then onto your BB using the loader. No OTA for hybrids.

Guys you may think this is REALLY stupid by a pretty computer savvy guy but I think the instructions have to be modified just a little - correct me if I'm wrong

so that the added files are put into that folder
Is that correct?
Here would be the corrected instructions ????
1. Uninstall all other OS from PC thru add/remove programs
2. Download and install .291 to PC 220.127.116.111
3. Download Hybrid 0.9a
4. Double click on v0.9 and follow instructions to install it over .291 (chose the usual path in
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9000-v18.104.22.1681_P22.214.171.124
5. Back up your phone AND 3rd party apps (click on guide in my signature and there are steps for each process)
6. When back ups all done, wipe your phone with BBSAK
7. If you would like to shrink the OS, here is a link to Shrink-A-OS: Shrink-A-OS
8. Delete vendor.xml file in c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader, scroll to the bottom (if you use shrink a os, it deletes it automatically)
9. Double click on loader.exe or from shrink, click launch loader.exe
10. Wait for it to be finished, then restore everything thru Desktop Manager
11. Do 3 60-second battery pulls (pull battery, wait 60seconds, replace battery, wait till phone boots up, repeat total of 3 times)
12. Set everything up the way you like it and enjoy your phone
Keep us posted

Xonz, I've already installed the hybrid, but i can't find Doc2Go. There's a Doc2Go ver 1.007.036 module (without word2Go, Slide2Go, etc), but there's no icons of them. Can you help me?
