    Hey GQ I prefer V7 by our very own BBCrackman It makes the storm run like it should have brand new. The only downfall is a lot of themes don't work with the .151 files that are contained in the V7 hybrid.

    You can find V7 Here

    If you are a big theme person check this thread out and see if your theme is listed as working or non working

    Hello GQman and welcome to BBOS,

    The latest Hybrid that I can comment on would be the .148 w/ BBC v6. This was the first hybrid that I ever ran. The install went real well. I ran it for about 4 days then I reverted back to the straight .148. The BB Swiss Army Knife dropped and at that time I wanted to wipe my device. The performance of the v6 was acceptable IMHO but I can only elaborate on the one Hybrid install. Here is a link to others.

    If you monitor this thread long enough, I'm sure you will receive enough opinions to make a fair decision. Thanks for droppin in.

    Never panic GQ that is what we are for. I would give it another 5 minutes. Then let us know where you are at.
