    Hey BK here is what you want to do to swap out the radio

    Download Swap A Radio here BlackBerry Apps/Hybrids by lyricidal
    Extract the .exe (I extract to my desktop)
    Run the file and browse to your OS folder ( C>prog files>common files>Research in motion>shared>loader>highlight the OS folder
    Select the radio you want to swap in to your OS
    once you get the confirmation that it is done run loader from the swap program

    If you are on Vista you will need to right click on the .exe and select run as admin for it to work properly

    Let us know if you have any issues

    Well after about 20 hours I think 5.1 has settled in. In the 12 hours since my last reset I went from 48mb down to 28mb during idle time. That's better than down to 21mb in the same time frame using 5.0. Also when I noticed the drain on 5.0 I deleted most of my apps and got that big of a drain. With 5.1 I loaded all my apps back (buzzme, talklock, weatherbug, two themes, meterberry - which I left on in 5.0, facebook 1.5). Also my battery drain is down to 2% an hour from 4-5% an hour on 5.0. So I'm very happy with this 5.1....BBC once again you are the man! Thanks for your tireless efforts at making our Storms work smoother.

    Interesting memory drop. I am seeing drops into the mid 20s from a reset of just under 50. When I was on V5 I was idling down to the mid 30s but I was using Twitterberry as my Twitter client. Now since UberTwitter started supporting BIS, I switched back. It seems to be the only variable difference for me (and of course the upgrade to V5.1) and must be more of a memory hog. I am going to idle for a few hours today with UberTwitter running in the background and see where I drop. Then tonite I will reinstall Twitterberry and see what happens. If they are both looking the same, I may drop back to V5. I will have to decide if I want to drop back or just wipe and do a clean install of 5.1 again.

    This memory monitoring thing is killing me. Sometimes I want to go back to the days of my 8800 and not even know what all this stuff is about. Back then, it was just a phone that got emails.....Who am I kidding?

    Thanks again. I just did the swap and reloaded the os (v5.1) without a hitch. I'll play with it a bit to see if it's better for me. Are there any pitfalls to 109 that I should look out for? As I said earlier, I've never had much of a problem with any of the hybrids I've downloaded, especially crackmans. Anyway, I appreciate the help as always.

    Not that I can recall. 109 was one of the best and most stable radios available IMO.

    Yes it can, this bird did it, and I'm glad I did. I forgot to wipe my device first time thru, with V-5, but all seemed to be ok. Second time round when V-5.1 came along, I did the jl_Cmd wipe. App free mem has never been better then this. Wife's addiction to Word Mole doesn't appear to drain the bat as much as it used to with .75 either.
