Yeah I'm trying to do this hybrid. There were hiccups that I noticed, I started running it then it gets to portion where it needs to reboot the phone and as the phone comes back up, it errors out.
I'm going to try .148 to see if that works or not.

I would suggest doing a wipe first.
Just to recap
Remove all os off your PC - control panel - add/remove programs.
Wipe device using jl_cmdr
Load and overwrite with V7.1 - follow the instructions posted on the front page
Are you using apploader or DM?
Don't unplug until phone has totally rebooted.

I'm using the apploader that comes with the .132
the jl_cmdr is that on my phone? Sorry for silly questions but I'm not used to updated the OS in this phone.

Hello there, so after a few days with .148 v7.1 on my phone I am very happy with it's performance..................except the typing. When i type a message/email/entry it sometimes totally stops and the delay is so long that it doesn't recognize the last 4-5 letters that I typed? Is this happening with anyone else? Also if i am charging it and the phone rings and I answer it the phone will randomly switch in and out of speakerphone mode? Kinda inconvenient in a lot of situations. Any comments or advice on these issues would be appreciated. One last thing, me and the wife use bbm all day but more times than not our phones will show as busy or unreachable to the other person and we're not busy or anything? Any idea how to correct this?

No silly questions here.

I deleted the OS and reinstalled w/ the update, ran it again and it's stuck on connecting to boot Rom, my phone restarts two or three times and the installer errors out. How can I wipe my phone to push a clean install?

I have a question or more like a request for guidance, I am sure someone has asked before but I am not sure where to look for the answer and I know you guys have always been able to help me out before. I have v7 on my phone now and I want to go to v7.1. If I understand correctly, I need to wipe my phones OS with JL_CMDR. When I have no OS at all and get that error message I have to first install OS 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 (any thought on which one is better?). When I install the first OS I just go to C:/Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/Shared/Loader and install either .132 or .148 correct? Do I delete older OS’s on my computer? After either 132 or .148 are installed on my phone, do I do the 3 battery pulls prior to installing v7.1? Then before I install v7.1, do I delete either .132 or .148 off my computer? After v7.1 is on the phone, I reload all apps and install back-up. Do the 3 battery pulls and phone should be done correct? I am sorry for all of the questions; I just want to make sure I have it all correct prior to me upgrading tonight. If I have missed something, please let me know.
