    He's right! I had to go through the whole
    Reinstall process a couple of months back.
    I don't know how I missed It , but I did.

    Quick question before I update

    Ok, I'm going to take the leap and upgrade to BBCM v7.1 and had a quick question before I get started...at the current time, I've:

    - backed up my apps
    - almost downloaded 4.7.0.132
    - wiped my handheld w. jl

    - after downloading, I'm going to use Control Panel to remove the current OS on my PC, install 4.7.0.132, then download/install hybrid v7.1 update 2 on my PC and use Loader to put it all on my handheld.

    My question is this: I see where it says not to run shrink-a-os w. this hybrid...is that still the case? If not, is this b/c this hybrid is already shrunk?

    TIA!

    A couple of things

    Even though you are installing this hybrid over .132 it will overwrite with the .148 files (since that is what it contains), if you are trying to achieve having the .132 radio code then you will have to either paste that into the cdma folder after install, or use Swap a Radio.

    Shrink a OS has not been used, so if you want to shrink then you will have to run that program manually once you have it installed on your PC

    I had a feeling it might use a different radio...thanks for reminding me! Do you have strong feelings about which radio works best? I know the poll still says .132 and I'd been using .132 with good results, but I always worried my use of swap-a-radio to go to .132 might be causing problems/instability.

    Also, it seems like BBCM said emphatically not to use shrink-a-os w. the hybrid v.7. If I'm going to install v7.1 update 2, is it ok to use shrink-a-os?

    Thanks again!

    I recommend against using shrink on this hybrid. Not that it won't work but for some it has caused issues.

    Thanks BBCM...I've finished the install...went ahead and used swap-a-radio to use .132 (I'll go w. the results of the poll on this one...plus it worked well for me on hybrid v6) and have just finished re-installing my 3rd party apps. I'll avoid using shrink-a-os per your suggestion.

    Now I get to see how it gets digested on my device

    I know there's a thread for this, but if you're online, could I bother you to confirm that I've got the right OS/platform info given that I'm running OS 4.7.0.132 w. BBCM hybrid v7.1 update 2 (and the radio swapped to .132)...it shows:

    v4.7.0.152 (platform 4.0.0.162)

    That sound right?

    Rats...guess I'll try it again. One last question if I could...does the v7.1 hybrid have issues w. plazmic themes? I got my phone running but after switching to the Win7v2L theme and doing 3 battery pulls, it starts fine but the screen doesn't react to my clicking on icons.
