    I am very pleased with the Storm's new OS and Hybrids, but..

    I have downloaded the leaked 151 OS for my storm and I have downloaded BBC's hybrid and OOAK's hybrid. I am currently running OOAK. I really love them both and I am having a hard time figure which one to keep.

    I want to know if Storm owners, who have jumped on the lastest leak, are as happy with their device as I am? Also, what has changed from 148 to 151 to help with the battery lose and memory leak, casue now my battery can last more than a full day and I do not loose more than 4-6mb of memory(if that much) throughout the day. Why hasn't any US carriers released this version of OS?

    Unfortunately I can only answer your first question. Yes I am very happy with my Storm now. Its insane that carriers don't make .151 the standard.

    I'm using OOAK'a latest v7.05 and it makes my Storm the phone I want to keep now. Struggled with the Storm since Nov 08, yeah one of the first. I had a period where I would try the latest leak, be disappointed and then drop back to my trusty ole Curve. Another leak would come out, another hybrid and I'd try the Storm again. Then back to the Curve. I've got to have a phone that works and works well, that's first priority, then comes everything else.

    Not until .151 did I think we were getting anyway. Once I tried .151, I was back to liking my Storm. Now with OOAK's 7.05 I'm loving my Storm. I can't wait until 5.0 is out for the Storm and I agree with everyone else here, why don't they release .151 so the masses will upgrade and then really begin to know they have a good phone. I'm checking everyone I see with a STorm and seeing if they are updating at least to something. Most everyone I've checked are stuck on .75, really, do you remember .75, I'm trying to forget.

    If everyone was running at least .151 I believe Storm 2 would be more successful. Most people will want to upgrade from a Storm to a Storm 2 just because they think it will finally be fixed. Some people won't touch it with a nine foot pole for fear of getting another .68 Storm and I don't blame them.

    RIM and the Carriers have to figure out that not all phone owners are on BlackberryOS, just the cool one's :cool2:

    I have been using BBCM Hybrids since .148 v7. I now have the .151 os with his hybrid v7.1.4 and have installed all the other hybrids inbetween and I have to say, i never had any problems. All it did was enhance my phone. I have not tried any other hybrids as BBCM's never gave me a problem, never gave me a need to try anything else.

    I installed the .151OS and had it on the phone for a day, found a little bit of a lag in the rotation between Landscape and Portrait & vice versa. Installed the v7.1.4hybrid and haven't looked back. Everything is quicker, more crisp and no lags at all. All the upgraded OS have made the storm better, but BBCK's gives it the extra push that the OS's r missing.

    It's like buying a Ferrari (Ferrari = OS) and customizing it (with BBCK hybrids) to unleash all the potentials... that's the best way i can describe it.

    Welcome Quiet1, I too believe that the Storm is a real workhorse of a phone with the leaked 151 hybrids. I haven't seen a great deal of difference between the hybrids but it is definately a taste thing.

    Thanks for the invitation all. P3Designs.... don't get freaked out if u get a request on BBM and don't know who it is. I was testing out the Barcode thing. I like to believe everyone here is too curious and thus i couldn't help but carry out my curiosity about the Barcode reader and just had to try it out and since you were the only one, so far, that i saw w/ a barcode, I tried it and yea it worked... so yea don't freak out..hahaha.

    but I think i deleted the request though...i think.

    And now I get the barcode thing too. Very interesting. It may not be such a great iea to put it up here unless you want alot of BBM contacts or requests. It's good to see it works correctly though

    Welcome bxrider and causey.
    I've been runnin strait .151 on two storms
    Since it dropped. I will changin to a hybrid
    Today. What I've found is a couple of problems
    With it, that I can't seem to fix. This maybe
    Why the carriers didn't use this. #1 not
    All theme builders (like the great ones around here)
    Have the fix for 151. #2 the mb #'s say one thing
    And act as though they are lower. #3 there has
    Been problems with messaging that I'm not
    Sure the hybrids have fixed.#4 several apps have
    Issues with this build also. collectively
    Those things are a big deal and that's my guess why they
    Didn't go with it. Like I said today I make
    The hybrid switch.

    I agree with you Causey. I was always on Crackberry, but I do not care for the individuals that put down others instead of helping out. We all love our Blackberrys and should always welcome new converts. That is what I like about BBOS.

    Jasonfyc,

    I have noticed that apps like Slacker, Pandora and Spoof do not work with this OS. I am slightly upset about Slacker and Pandora, but I am sure that someone will figure it out soon. I just listen to the 500+ mp3s on my Storm.

    I have been using 151 for a quite a while I don't use Spook but can say that Pandora and Slacker worked fine. Did you check you compatibility settings for those apps?

    Is ur storm running on another carrier 'cause Verizon just pushed Slacker to all Verizon Storms. The Slacker icon just showed up on my Storm yesterday. I was like "WTF" but then I read blogs stating verizon just pushed it to the Storm. Pandora, I haven't used Pandora in a while since Slacker has more songs, Slacker with iHeart keeps me happy lol.

    To go back to your statement, Slacker works fine for me. Haven't had a problem. R u not able to play any stations on Slacker or is it freezing up/rebooting ur phone at random times?
