    Why use Leaked OS's?

    I know why I like using leaked OS's and Hybrids, but, I have a friend who got the Storm right when it came out and claims to LOVE the .75 software. :dunno: I am having trouble convincing him that his life will be better with a different OS. He's all afraid that it will void his warranty and he is CERTAIN that .75 is fantastic and works awesome for him. at:The weird thing is, he's more of a phone guy than me. He's all about hacking his Win Mob devices but won't touch his Storm. I even offered to do all the work for him and load .132 BBC v.5 for him and he won't budge. He's probably tired of me going on about how great my Storm runs and how it never lags, and the accelerometer is smooth, and...
    Any suggestions on how I can get him to see the light? Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks guys.:banana:

    It's tough to talk someone into something without showing them the proof.

    Definitely have him use your phone to see the difference in performance/ response time.

    It is documented in a bunch of places that it will not void the warranty. Find that and show him as well. good luck.

    Thought about that. He'd flip out when he discovered that his phone functioned as it was intended to and would demand that it be immediately downgraded to craptastic .75. He's pretty stubborn.

    I was actually happy with .75 for the longest time I didn't have a lot of the issues that seemed to plaque people. That being said I agree with Neo let him use your phone for awhile, and he should see the light.

    I have shown him my phone side by side and he still is not convinced. :dunno:I guess someone once told him that leaked OS's are bad. It was probably a BB rep. He will have none of it. I've all but given up but I figured I would look to BBOS.com for help.

    just tell him to try it for a week (tie him down and install it if u have to lol) then if he dont like it he can always go back to .75. and i agree with bm, i didnt have any problems with .75. i was just bored one day so i decided to "upgrade" and just never went back

    Invite him/her to our site, let him/her look around. Read reviews, talk to the other members and team members. Let him/her know that installation of alternative software wont hurt the device. And he/she can always revert back to .75
