    Hey Lyr, Your Hybrid is amazing . I got an issue w/battery life. Tried to run w/out 3r party apps and experienced unreasonable battery life(Not sure why). Not sure if you can answer this(Or if I should ask this?) but would you recommend me trying Sean's V6 over 451. Your Hybrid was definitely a bit faster than Sean's but battery life was a negative for me w/497..

    No you do not have to. Just replace the java folder files of .451 with this download and install.

    Hi guys and specifically to lyrc,,, Yes i admit it is a fantastic, built, much faster than the earlier ones and lower on battery drain. I am facing a problem on the sms which I faced in 421 too. The bug is that if person A sends me a sms, it shows up in person Bs thread. This has had dangerouse reppurcussions,,,, I am sure a few of you are already laughing your guts off... Anyway any observations ???

    Installed .451 then installed the lyricidal hybrid. At this point I spliced OOAK 530 in the java folder over lyricidal overwriting the duplicate files and proceeded to wipe the device for a clean install.

    I did 4 battery pulls then reloaded contacts and apps or redownloaded apps. I also had the service books resent to the device.

    I let the OS settle in over the past 24 hours and the discharge rate has settled down to .8 per hour. This discharge rate is with the factory theme and no storm slider.

    The only nuiance I've noticed is the time stamp for inbound SMS always reads less than one minute ago even after sitting there all day. The oubound SMS timestamp updates correctly.

    I'll share any new findings on this setup. What turned me on to these hybrids was my storm 2 resetting. I have since doubled the size of the pad that stabilizes the battery and reformatted my phones SD card then put everything back on the card. No more resets but I am not optimistic on the solution yet.

    Thanks to lyricidal for the hybrid.

    This combo works great. Battery usage with the newest storm slider is 0.7% and increases to 2~3% with light use. Keyboard lag is non existant. The phone is fast and smooth like a new device. Memory is stable and only down -0.4mb after 48+ hours. There have been no phantom phone resets during the 48+ hours.
