    How do you install this? It says downgrade?!

    I tried to install this hybrid and I run the full install over my bold directory and when I run apploader it says to downgrade?! Is that correct?

    Hybrids use a mix of files from different os's, the apploader will pick up the files from older os's in the mix, and that is why it asks you to downgrade.

    So short answer is yes choose the downgrade.

    Either that or wipe your device using Crackmem or BBSAK or some such prior to the OS load.

    Good point and suggestion but that does not always take care of the downgrade option popping up.

    You mean if you use DM to load the OS? I've never used DM to change my OS other than when I wanted to go back to my carriers default.

    Sorry yes I only point that out due to some people only using DM and not loader when updating or downgrading their OS's

    Options > Advanced > Applications > Menu > Modules. You should see a mix of file versions.

    This is a great hybrid. Been using it for a few weeks now and my app memory never dropped below 44mb, my battery would last almost 2 days with moderately heavy usage. I've only loaded BB Crackman's v3 last night and so far everything's been running beautifully as well.
