    I would install the straight OS first onto your PC. In this case download 4.7.0.151 onto your device. Then download and run the hybrid.exe to your PC.
    Now you can install the Hybrid OS to your device...
    Thanks for your clarification. In terms of freebirds' opinion, does it mean that we should use crack utility to wipe the device instead of both BBSAK and JL cmder? especially for OS 5.0 XXX in the future?

    Another question is; do we have to back up all 3rd party apps before up/down grading? because recently I find every time when I use Apploader to upgrade my phone with new hybrids, though i have had a 'complete wipe' and it seems no any apps with the device, all apps I installed before are in the loader list, and I just do one-step installation to fulfil the task, and no issues at all. I don't go to DM to reload the 3rd party apps any more, except to back up the data.

    Honestly...I think it is a matter of opinion
    If you were to ask 10 people you may get 10 different responses. I prefer BBSAK.

    Yes to to backing up your apps.

    Dude, seriously, why bother with that after doing without all this time??? I downgraded to 151 from 5.0 with JL and my phone works great!

    Everytime I do an up/downgrade, I backup 3rd party Apps using BBSAK. You're better safe than sorry.

    Once you have installed the whole OS, you can then install the hybrid and do it like you have in the past. This method is like the ultimate master reset on the device.

    I think I'll stick to what I've been doing all along as my phone works perfectly!

    This is for people who are having problems downgrading from 5.0. The conflict is occurring because JL_Cmder does not remove the file system. Thus, the 5.0 radio code is still on the phone, even after the wipe. By using the method I posted, you completely remove the file system, making it easier to revert back to 4.7. To answer your question, NO I would not do this every time. It's a pain is the @$$ but it's the most effective way to completely remove all files from the phone. Like a Master Reset.
