    Help with Hybrid V3

    Hi guys!
    I'm a total newb and i was hoping if someone can help me. I'm still currently running version 75 and now I definitely want to get into this 114 v3 craze!! Currently can someone give me step by step instruction on how to update or going about doing so????? The only thing i have on my computer installed is the desktop version 4.7 I have never installed a OS before or a beta so any help would be great! I hope you guys can point me in the right direction. Such as what files to download and what to do first. Also i was hoping for member who have already upgraded. Have the "EDGE/edge flickering problem been resolved" is it now constant EDGE? Thanks guys! Much appreciated!.

    Mike

    Welcome to BBOS mike104393. You can start by downloading the .114 OS and the hybrid package.

    Yes do not take anything out of your phone. Some feel it is important to turn your internet off though.
