9700 Hybrid by Dubie76 442/421/484
This EXE is set to download over a fresh installation of 442. However, if you prefer the 423 radio, you can start with a fresh install of 423 and redirect the exe to extract the hybrid in the 423 loader file folder. Download and install the exe, then shrink, and launch loader.
Dubie is a moderator at www.driphter.com and has been building some really quality 9700 hybrids for us! Thanks for letting me share this with bbos dubs.
Please post your Fixes and Findings here
I personally just loaded the .451 hybrid yesterday so I think I will late on this, but I would love to see what finds you guys find. If you install make sure to update is...
Rep for Hybrid
I'm gonna try this one
First Impression, boot up was quick, voice notes recorder is still missing (the icon is there, but error while opening it), battery life from meterberry's stats was a shocking 10% discharge per hour (note: I havent even run my social network apps, and not even used a browser) Memory was Ok, up 3-5mb.
the fastest media browser ever... quick! browser is fast too.
as for the battery and memory i will do a trial run for one whole day tomorrow. just to confirm whether the stats were right.
thanks for the hybrid, it is well built, no error or whatsoever, just the voice notes, and batt life,
I think ill wait and see some comments on this OS before I give it a try. This will be my first hybrid install. I hope I don't mess it up. Wish me luck when I do take the plunge.
If you do not want to wait try .423/.451 Hybrid OS. It works wonders!

Does it come with .423 files as the name implies?
It confuses me to use a hybrid with files older than .442
Yes, voice notes recorder indeed is missing. In addition, you need to setup a password in order to have a password locked icon on your menu. The standby mode (top right button) isn't working but replace the lock key on the left. Shortcut A key ( normally for keyboard locked also become standby mode). In order to turn on your keyboard lock, you need to click on the password lock icon on the menu.

I will revert back, and try Dubie's 423/451 like Jrod.
good try on the hybrid, I just wished it had more batt life.
Oh yeah, one more thing, on app compatibility, I found Addonis didnt work with this hybrid build, it wont perform its functions. it still works well with 442/451, but not on this.
so consider it before you try, but apart from that if ure looking for the fastest browser, and batt life is no issue for you since you have extended battery etc, then this one is for you.
The reason I use .423 hybrid is because it is more stable in my opinion.

The .451/.423 Hybrid is the best OS I have load for 9700 so far. I am going to pass on the .464 and wait for the next one.
i saw some tour hybrid using .497 java files (not that many)
any plans on similar stuff for 9700 ? :P
Not sure I will check with BBHybrids and see what they have in the works...
yes, exactly, what about some 497?
I already ran the 442/497 hybrid by kimi14 (I forgot the actual nickname of the hybrid maker) for 3 days and it's running smooth. So far the differences I noticed are:
- Battery lasts for 26-30 hours on 3G (I'm kind of a hardcore user, 7 BB Groups and counting)
- Media loads almost instantly
- The browser is very fast but has some problem with several site's certificates
- When you press the keylock button, the screen will be turned off and the notification that pops up when you press a key is taken from 9550 (i.e. you no longer can unlock the screen with * and the dial key)
- The OS has been heavily trimmed
- No DocsToGo, you'll have to reinstall the cods
So far so good. More to come!
