I've been getting requests, e-mails, and PMs inviting me over here to share my hybrid goodness.
I've never been one to deny the people. So here it is!
ABOUT THIS HYBRID from OneOfaKindDPC:
This hybrid is a hybrid of hybrids. It consists of 151 files, Lyricidal's 5.0 files, files from v4 of my hybrid, plus some other tweaks I have added all over .148 to bring the whole things together. This hybrid, like all my others, is slimmed down. In other words several none essential programs have been removed to allow for the most possible free memory without out degrading the functionality of the storm. Please read the list of things removed before installing this hybrid as you have the ability to add the things I removed back into the OS at the sacrifice of whatever memory the programs added use up.
removed about 20 5.0 files, this has improved the overall stability and improved the battery life/memory management.
Added in the alx files that were supposed to be in the 'Removed Files' folder that was not in 5.8.
changed the alx files in the core of the hybrid from 132 to 148, plus one 151 alx file.
The known issues are still there:
up swipe doesn't show the keyboard
when locked the vibrate/silent mode button is mostly for show
the green box when taking a pic isn't there (doesn't effect picture taking though)
Video Recorder doesn't show time until you stop the recording (doesn't effect recording)
Here's a list of all items removed: (used the terms from Lyricidal's Shrink An OS to make it easier to reinstall things that were removed later on)
All Language files that are anything other than English (sorry its all I know)
Yahoo (there are 3rd party programs that can make these all possible with only a fraction of the size)
Flickr (debating on whether or not to add this back in)
Docs To Go (Sheet, Slideshow, and Word)
Event Log Viewer
SIM Card Capabilties
Vodaphone Music App
Recently myself and others have found a problem with video playback. When the video is playing the audio buttons are locked and you cannot adjust the volume! The only way the volume can be adjusted is by pausing the video or by stopping the video.
This has been a nagging problem in The One's test OSs and now it has appeared in crackman's version 7 hybrid!
But with OneOfaKindDPC latest hybrid it has been fixed!
I've been running it all evening and it's crazy fast.
Here is all the info needed:
Here's the basics of it.
Download Shrink An OS by Lyricidal BlackBerry Apps/Hybrids by lyricidal
-Locate your 148 directory where you should have the hybrid installed (X:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9530-v188.8.131.52_P184.108.40.206
-Place the 'Removed Files' folder into the 'Java" folder
-Run Shrink An OS
-Browse for the 148 folder
-Check the items you want put back in
-Click 'Put It Back!'
-Install the OS
If there's typo's I'm sorry. I copied this out of one of my other threads. I will go though it tonight to avoid confusion.
