    You need to install .132 OS first (just straight OS),
    then install the v5.1 hybrid over .132. I have had where someone didn't know they needed a base OS. Double check that, and also make sure you delete the vendor.xml file.

    Ok do the following:
    1. Back up your phone and your 3rd party apps
    2. Uninstall all OS from PC (control panel>add/remove programs)
    3. Download AND install .132 (Get link from here: http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/9...-software.html)
    4. Download the hybrid that you want (v5.1)
    5. Run the hybrid installer
    6. Delete vendor.xml file
    7. Double click app loader, follow prompts, and wait for the process to be done. DO NOT unplug the phone until app loader says "Device software updated successfully."
    8. Perform a battery pull
    9. Set everything up and enjoy the phone.

    **You do not need to wipe with JL. Just follow these steps and go to the hybrid from .75. Let us know if you have more questions.

    perfect Thanks!!! The whole problem was I thought the hybrid was a full OS. Last thing, when I look in the loader folder I see 2 seperate folders .132 and hybrid .132. Is this right? How could I tell if my phone is running the hybrid? Thanks again.

    Yeah, I have seen people misunderstand that step. When you run the hybrid installer, (bb has instructions with pictures), it should replace the necessary files in .132 with the hybrid files. Anyways, let us know the outcome. Also go to the options>about screen and see what OS you got after the install.

    Here are the instructions for v5 with pictures, but you would do just the same with 5.1:
