thanks for your help as always
I guess the best advice I can give you is to check out the findings and fixes thread for the particular OS you are looking to upgrade to. That has always helped me out the most when deciding whether or not to take the plunge

Reason: Didn't realize this was in the 9500 thread
you should def upgrade. 5.0 are wicked OSs
IMHO, there are too many problems with 5.0 at the mo..., 22.214.171.124 is the one for the moment...
Its fine if you have time to keep checking your phone is still working and hasn't locked up, or even unexpectedly rebooted itself..., but if you are using it as a business tool, and there is an expectancy on it to work 24/7, stick with 126.96.36.199 for the mo..
Like everyone out there, I really want to get my hands on a stable 5.0 but it's not out there at the mo unless you have time on your hands to be a beta tester for RIM...
It seems that 188.8.131.52 (or higher) will drop soon, so keep your eyes open...

Could`nt agree more. Os 5 and all the associated hybrids are not up to it. Real tool of trade and not a toy.

which OS do you start with and who,s OS is can you send me the links
is it the same as putting on a normal hybrid
First thing to do is make sure you get a full backup of your Storm..., very important..

Option two is to go for v5... I wouldn't bother with 18.104.22.168 as it's a bag of nails..., but the other lads are using a hybrid..., this explains what you need to do..., it's not a straight install, there is some faffing around to get it ready to install..., you need to download 22.214.171.124 then put the hybrid over it.. :bandit:
You may also want to flatten your phone first... I use some software called JL_Cmdr, you can find it on the Blackberry sites..., it's free and will let you trash the phone...
Make that full backup before you do anthing..., or you'll have a big old mess on your hands...
as a fellow uk 9500 user i recomend 216/238 or the new hybrid when available to non vip 126.96.36.199/238/287
only minor flaws mostly fixxed by a flick of the wrist
and improvements are superior to flaws.
Have you got a download link to it...?
