    Better Radio(.191)?????

    I read in the 9630 Blog that .191 would make their Os faster in general...Whats the procedure in swapping radios. I've never done that before and do need advice. I have S1,,Thanks in advance for any help...

    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!
