    What OS to try next on my unlocked storm?

    So I've tried Ooakdpc v.9, -> I went to 5.0.0.140 -> then ooakdpc v.11 -> back to 5.0.0.140

    Now the ooakdpc was good but my battery would drain fast, on the 5.0.0.140 I noticed it last longer, then I went back to v.11 to see if maybe my battery would improve but it didnt, so now I'm on 5.0.0.140 again and have better battery life but of course I'm starting to miss my 3rd party apps. Any advice on what os/hybrid to try next on my unlocked storm using tmo. Maybe someone in my similar situation? Looking for something recent to test.

    At this point in time you have two clear cut choices. You can either run 140, which I love for its speed and stability or drop down to the hybrid that you mentioned above so you can play with your 3rd party apps.

    I am sticking with 140, everything I really need works on 140.

    You may want to try a hypbrid by BBCrackman if you want something new, I think there is a 7.1.4 (or something similar).

    Well remember all storms react differently, what might work
    For one of us may not work for you. For example... I couldn't get
    5.0 to work well enough to keep it on my phone but you
    Were able to. Right now I am runnin .151 with Lyricidal and lovin
    It. Memory, speed, and all my apps work! So I guess that's
    My suggestion.

    P3 is correct crackman has V7.1.4 with the 148 radio,
    But you can swap the radio and run .151 for more memory
    Stability.

    I guess like most things in life, the OS picked is a personal preference thing. At least that was the gist of my post.

    And I liked the 151 radio best.

    I have yet to hear anything bad about either hybrid...

    That being said I prefer BBCracks...but....OOAK's run equally as well. You can't go wrong either way.

    I am biased towards BBCracks though.

    I actually stick with Crackman or Lyricidal! Ooak, although
    A good builder tends to have problems on my devices.
    But as P3 said its your choice.

    Either one I'll try, I'd need a fresh .151 install on my pc first?

    Then install .151.

    If P3 would be kind enough to assist me being as I am mobile
    I would greatly appreciate it.
    Your going to need Lyricidal's shrink an os 3.3! Link please!
    Also crackmans or Lyricidals hybrid! Link please!
    Both come with instructions but feel free to ask any
    Questions you may have! :fing02:
    In shrink no matter which hybrid you choose, you
    Can swap the radio.

    Thanks for your help. I dont need the step by step, I got that part covered

    But, why would I need to change the radio file on Lyricidals? Doesnt it already come with the .151 file?

    Ahh! One thing, unless you notice a substantial problem
    With the Os/hybrid right away... Like... You said
    Your battery life was terrible. Then leave it for
    About three days to make a decision on removal.
    It takes some time to set in.

    What would be the best way to swap the radio in v7.1.4 with the .151 radio?
    Install .151 on the computer, then install 7.1.4, then shrink and swap to .151?

    WIsh I could help you with that. Actually I can point you to a link that may help

    I tried Lyricidal's latest hybrid. So far, I noticed the battery going down with this one. So as some apps dont work with 5.0, I think it really has the edge, no pun intended, with battery life. Since most of the time I cant get good reception at work anyways, now I'm contemplating going back to 5.0 lol. Am I the only that upgrades and downgrades and upgrades again as they decide what they feel works out best. I feel like such an addict :bigeyes:
