    How can you do that for the 9500...?

    In the case of the 9500, you want to use 5.0.0.216 instead of 5.0.0.230 - basically all you are using from the base OS is the SFI file (aka radio file, actually the core OS)

    Otherwise, the instructions will be the same.

    Yes, I was a bit hesitant to try out hybrid OSes there for awhile myself, until I though about it a bit. If it helps to think about it this way, what a hybrid does is install upgraded apps over the same core OS; much like you might download an update for Office 2007 on a Vista PC. The underlying Vista OS doesn't change, the Office 2007 version is what changes.

    In other words, by the time the hybrid is released; all of the compatibility testing has been done and problems will be minimal. For the most part, i've found Lyric's and BBCrackman's hybrids to be as stable, if not more stable, than the official RIM OS packages.

    This particular OS was for BBHybrids VIP members before it was released to us, so it's had plenty of testing.
