Needed my camera for the weekend...so who else do I turn to?... Lyricidal of course!!... Thanks man...you're the best!!
I have used this hybrid for quit a while. I have tried all the 5.0 hybrids but always end up back here. The only issue I had was the Slacker issue with the 151 radio. After seeing a tweet from gordtm yesterday I tried something new. I was testing a 5.0 hybrid but was still having some issues as well as knowing Facebook wouldn't work I went back and did the following:
1) Installed 151 on my PC
2) Installed Beta6v10
3) Shrink-n-OS and shrunk the software and did swap a radio to 167 SFI
4) Wiped the phone with BBSAK
5) Installed with Apploader.
I have been running this for about 18 hours and it has been excellent. It is extremely fast and with no clocking. Also I have been listening to Slacker now for 2 1/2 hours with no issues. All my apps work excellent. This is the best my Storm has ever been!
Thanks again for the tweet gordtm!!
How do we choose the .167 radio using Shrink-A-OS?
I see a list under the Radio Swap button, but not sure which one to choose as .167 is not listed...
Loading now Rlervin...and Gordie !!! nice call !!

What version of shrink-a-os should I be running to try this or does it matter. I have 3.5 installed, think I remember reading about an upgrade.
For the .167 radio swap, it is included in the newest version of shrink-a-os v 3.9
You can download it from the theiexplorers.com
Download and check to make sure it is 3.9
The .rar link hadn't been updated earlier, but the .zip did.
so it sounds like it is worth switching to the .167 radio...
gonna have to try this out tomorrow i think!

Did the swap radio last night & so far, so good. Memory held steady all night. Will try out Pandora/Slacker on the train ride to work, which is when I really use it. What's the difference between 6v10 & 7v1?
Memory holding up, battery doing well & running Pandora for over 2 hours now. If only I had gotten a chance to do this before my 9 drive over the weekend. Was using my BB to listen to music.
I cannot find that radio verion in swap a os. I check my version and it is the latest on please help.
You have version 3.9? If you do, then it should be in the drop list after you select your device(9530)
I am a theme and app junkie.
I've read that apps are working with 6v10, but how about themes? I have at least 10 (haven't checked them all) that won't work. They go all crazy and I have to delete them through DM to get my phone to even let me do anything to it. I'm running 6v7 right now on the 9530.
Should I load the 6v10?
