Swithced Back to Hybrid
I just switched back to BBC's Hybrid today from 5.0. This has been the stablest hybrid for my phone. Battery life and memory has been great. I decrease some of my 3rd party apps and now my memory starts at 47.7.

Glad to hear all worked out for you, just goes to show you can't rush perfection

i've had this hybrid os installed for about 2 weeks now and it's been rock solid. i installed it over an existing .148 that the phone came with and with all the apps i have installed, it starts off with about 29mb off a fresh boot.
battery life leaves a bit to be desired. i close all programs that i can but i do use it constantly throughout the day (gtalk, fb, browser, bbm, txt msgs, twitterberry, googlemaps, and email). i unplug it from the charger around 9-10am and it'll reach 20% battery around 4pm. i hardly used it today and it's showing 45% battery.

My findings.... with some issues (Though my fault)
Let me preface this with two things:
1.) I am pretty much a noob when it comes to these Hybrid OS.
2.) I am technologically savvy, so despite my lack of experience, I learn REAL fast and can figure things out pretty well on my own (though this has not really been one of those times... it has left me ).
So I've downloaded this hybrid and gone through to install it on my Verizon Storm 9530 over v220.127.116.11. The installation goes smoothly until my Storm actually turns back on. :1zhelp:When it does turn on, I am walked through the activation prompts and it says I am connected to the Verizon network. I look at connection status in 'Manage Connections' and it says that I am not connected to the Blackberry Service. Then I go into Wireless Options and it says that Data is enabled. However, I have no Web Browser.
Then comes my next issue. I go to Host Routing Table and it is completely blank. I go to look at the Service Books and those are blank as well. I have gone to the Verizon Blackberry Internet Service website to resend Service Books to my phone to no avail. I have also done multiple battery pulls in addition to resending service books. Any light ANYONE can shed would be GREATLY appreciated. I know I can, with a bit of time to waste, roll it back to the original .148 OS that I had on it for the second time today, but I would love to be able to take advantage of this hybrid as I have been hearing such good things about it. :1zhelp:
:hail:I would seriously bow down to anyone who can help me resolve my issues!!!!:hail:
I figured out the problem... I was in my office where I wasn't getting a clear enough signal to receive messages and service books. I moved my phone by a window for about 20 minutes and problem solved. I'll let you know my thoughts in a future update after I get to play around with it for a bit!
Also, realized that I posted without really doing much looking through the forums and the EVERYTHING Guide... granted my question wouldn't have been entirely answered by that guide, but definitely would have made my life a hell of a lot easier than trying to figure it out all on my own.:banghead:

Welcome to BlackberryOS. So all your problems are gone now?

All the problems are gone so far, and it is running super fast even before I've done my full battery pulls.. I was getting rid of the programs I don't want and putting on programs that I do before I do the pulls.

So I've done the 3 battery pulls and am using quickpull and berrymeter and slacker and facebook. After last pull, started at 47.2 MB free.
Only issue is when I tried to reset using BerryMeter it gave me an unhandled java exception. Much faster than previous versions. Will keep ya posted on what my free memory looks like in a few hours.

Hmm try this: go to Options > Advanced > Applications, hightlight quickpull and edit the permissions. Verify that all the permissions are set to allow.
