    Do I have to install .191 first on my 9500 as Randykelly says?

    1 install 5.0.0.140 on PC
    2 install hybrid(choose 9500 installer)
    3 download the zip OOAKDPC9530beta50 and unzip it on desktop
    4 open DM and go to backup and restore/restore and browse to the desktop and select the Flick_Scrolling_Backup.jpd.
    5 do a battery pull

    It should work now.
    It does for me.

    To get flick scrolling install the flick scrolling backup file from the winrar archive via DM after installing the hybrid.
    Lyric makes mention of the radio being "choppy" and this concerns me. After all the prime function is a phone and if the radio is questionable this is not acceptable. Does anybody care to contribute to the effectivity in making and receiving calls?

    can you confirm that the data works as it should? i tried it, i can get the 3G and bb symbol, but no connection (cannot browse or receive email).

    anyway, found some glitches of this hybrid.

    1. VAD is not working
    2. when you play music, then you run the camera and close it, the music will continue but then after few seconds, the device would just reboot itself.
    3. keyghosting setting will be back to disabled after restart
    4. flick scroll has unresolved issue in email/sms inbox, scroll up/down is not working in BBM
    5. the message on the BBM will stop autoscroll (when you receive/send new message) after sometime or something (i haven't identified the cause yet)
    6. flick scroll causes the top icon went half blank or completely blank sometime if you scroll up and down a few times
    7. 3g network does not register correctly (sometime with BB symbol but no actual data connection, some other time / most of the time just 3G symbol)
    8. gmail pluggin won't work at all
    9. meterberry's restart won't function
    10. experience one (so far) reboot when I received phone call.
    11. slowdown (a lot) when picture is making thumbnails.
    12. date/time autodetect is detecting wrong timezone all the time (as with all other 5.0 leaks)

    the goods of this hybrid however:
    1. cool new 191 theme
    2. flick scrolling on every aspect
    3. quick respond on orientation change and phonelock
    4. good camera
    5. robust contact detail
    6. cool today (useful) screen
    7. slick boot screen
    8. very good memory management
    9. BBM5/WLM/YM is working (with a bit of work out of course)
    10. vibrate with ring (finally)
    11. dedicated functioning file explorer
    12. a lot better media player (songs is shown prior to playing a playlist)
    13. better battery usage
    14. better signal stability (with 2G of course)
    15. tabs on browser (never use it as it is being on 2G all the time)
    16. auto profile change, timed bedside mode (very useful one)

    i think in 2 or 3 revision of the hybrid, it should hit the milestone of getting rid of all glitches and having all of those goodness of os5

    anyway, i won't go back to old school os4 after using this hybrid and i don't encourage people of not using it despite the glitches.
