I fancy a try at a Hybrid..
Like all of you, I'm eagerly waiting for the leak of .191 for the 9500..., but after reading some of the problems it has with the US model, i.e. the camera doesn't work.., I'm not sure I can see the point just yet.., much as I would love to...
So, I'm going to give a hybrid a go, and the consensus seems to suggest that Mr Crackman is the one to go for...
Again, I'm lost in the menu system..., I was looking under "Blackberry Storm" and I can see a "hybrid" section, and it lists the various versions that are available by the people who have made them up.., but when I look in Crackman it seems to fall in a hole ..., the latest one isn't there..., can some one point me to the link to his latest offering...?, or even what hybrid is generally considered to be the best yet...?
You can't go wrong with BBCrackman, Lyricidal, or OneOfAKindDPC hybrids. I have personally tried all of their work. I suggest testing a few different ones to see what works best for you. Most people end up with a 'favorite' hybrid builder pretty quickly
PS - If you had a Bold I would also have suggested Xonz he does great work
Morganizer is 100% spot on (as always) the only issue I will bring up is the following. BBCrackman hasn't made a 9500 in a long time, I know he is working on new one but I have not heard a progress on that.

Hybrids on 9500
Lyricidal is the way to go on a 9500 phone. No regrets using Lyric 6V6 and quite frankly not keen to look at anything else. You will not regret it!

No it is a bit different. But each hybrid maker provides detailed instructions as to exactly how install their hybrid. And of course should have any questions, that is what these forums are all about.

whats the worst that can happen to my phone? :17:
I've been having a play around with the hybrids, and to be honest there always seemed to be something that didn't quite work..
I think for the mo I'm sticking with 184.108.40.206, seems fine for me... I don't use any themes and the only thrid party app I user is Easylock...
As I've mentioned before, I can't see the point of going to v220.127.116.11, when and if we get it as the camera doesn't work... What we all need is a "good" build of 5 so we don't keep wasting our lives away... a 18.104.22.168xx build may be the way forward..., just pointless getting the .191 leak for the 9500 if we know it doesn't work...
22.214.171.124 seems stable and works fine..., that's where my money is for the mo..
