    I have not read the specific instructions for the process that you want, but if it's just swapping radios, then it's easy. You will need to have both OS installed on your PC, then go to c/program files/common files/research in motion/shared/loader files/OS/ the copy the CDMA folder from OS .191 to the desired OS, same location. Then run loader.exe to load to phone.

    There is also a way to do it with Shrink-A-OS or Swap-A-Radio, but I have read that with higher OS, those programs are not successful in swapping radios.

    **BTW, there is more to the process than just swapping radios. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully...as you would need to do some editing of files.

    I swapped the .230 radio for the .191 and it does speed my baby up, it really isn't that difficult but ya might want to do more research before you mess with radio files. All I did was used bbsak to do a low-level wipe...I have OCD with doing that..then I downloaded .191 and installed it, then copied the CDMA folder and then deleted the CDMA folder in .230 and then pasted the .191 to replace the .230 CDMA folder and then used shrink-a-os to reload the os/hybrid.

    Oh yeah, it boots up even quicker too. I'm loving this hybrid setup a lot! :hail:

    I didn't edit any files and I didn't brick my baby...even though I love bricking her...since It didn't brick or give me any errors, It was a success!

    on

    I only have 1(my lil boy) but Sista in law's kids are here for the weekend..God bless me.lol..
    btw, what is your base OS? I have 230w/.191 radio/.405H. It loaded up Extremely nice and smooth. Only issue is, I have this loaded on a non active S1(Dont know if transmitting data will be as smooth as the install (I hope so). so I am now going to load it onto my "active" S1. My question is should I go w/323 or 230 as the base OS? and why did you choose .191 as your radio? Am assuming you've had great luck w/it in the past..

    Mine is .230/.351/.191 radio, I'm tired and can't think right at the moment so yeah but my buddy has been using the .191 radio since it leaked and I liked how it was fast and very responsive. I'd say go with .230 base but its up to ya! I've only had my 9630 for maybe a week or so and glad I got it cause my 8330 just wasn't powerful enough for me and not a lot of options with it.

    I think you're right! .230 seems to be real smooth. I will load it up now on my active line. Worst comes t worst, I'll just test out 323 on the inactive line when I recharge my brain...lol... Thanks
