Thanks Dave..., still a bit "twitchy" about these hybrids..., wish they would come up with a sound version for us 9500's...
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.
