    You know, this might sound silly, but I almost think that bricking (and recovering) your device should be a rite-of-passage for ANY Blackberry owner - especially if they are going to even THINK of updating their OS at any point and time. Even an official OS can EASILY brick the device, and it's alot more convenient to take the time to learn how to recover it; rather than taking it back to the store.

    Like I said, it might sound silly..... But you wouldn't do any hardcore tinkering with a PC without knowing how to reformat the drive and reload the OS.

    You are right. It can be frustrating, time consuming and panic inducing...but a great learning experience

    Hey Olt..not to get off the subject here or posting in the wrong post(Could not find the "super Hybrid2 post) but I would like some assistance with OOAKK's "Super Hybrid2"..I was reading the directions for the d/l and it recommended to delete files from the OS "BEFORE U LOAD YOUR HYBRID TO YOUR PC YOU WILL NEED TO GO TO YOUR OS FOLDER AND DELETE EVERYTHING IN IT." what does that actually mean? is it referring to the base OS that the Hybrid is being d/l to or what. Secondly, I d/l the Hybrid but it seams like its just the "Java" folder. Am assuming that replaces the java folder in the 5.0.0.140 base OS right? Could you assist me Almighty one
