    Willyboy 8900 v4 .610/.612/.623

    This is a hybrid for the Curve 8900 device. I recommend uninstalling any other OS’s off of your computer and running CCleaner (including registry cleaner) to ensure a clean install. Please back up all your data before proceeding.

    -This is meant to install over the LEAKED 5.0.0.610 base OS. Install this first.
    -Run Willyboy 8900 v4.exe to install the hybrid over the base.
    -"Exit" the installer, Shrink-A-OS will pop up. Shrink out all languages you do not need to save space. DO NOT shrink out default fonts and themes.
    -If you choose to wipe, now would be the time to do it.
    -Launch loader from SAOS. If core applications are missing from loader selection, try launching from BBSAK or BBMCP.

    This is a .610/.612/.623 build.

    -East Asian Language support is included
    -Dcom Downloads launcher was included for fast access to great downloads!

    Since the memory leak seemed to be resolved in v3.1, I wanted to keep it that way in this one. I included a lot of the Pearl .623 files because I wanted to try and improve battery life while maintaining the fast OS speeds and good memory management. It is important to keep in mind that the first couple reboots will take a lot longer than normal. Also, battery life will not be good until the device settles which usually takes 24-48 hours.

    Help Screen (alt+shift+h) will read as App Version 5.0.0.623 while the About screen will as 5.0.0.612.

    Please post your comments and feedback! ENJOY!

    Thank you all for your patience. I was away this weekend as some of you have previously mentioned. Please see the links below for all of your patching needs.

    -This patch was posted by user carlospr21 as a fix for the missing BBMaps Icon: v4 Patch by carlospr21
    -This patch will fix the inability to connect to ATT hotspot's and also fix the spellcheck bug: v4 Patch 1

    The only bug I did not address was the Wifi reading {0} in Manage connections (consistent when using other languages). This is because the wifi is still fully functional and it would be a very time consuming patch to create. I vow that this will be fixed in v4.1. You can also expect all of these other minor bugs to be gone in the next release.

    Thank you all for your kind words, support, and continued references. I appreciate all of the nice things you say about my hybrids and am glad you have such confidence running them. I used to make hybrids for only personal use, but then I thought why not share the wealth, everybody should have a BB that runs to it's full potential! I am truly glad you all are enjoying this ride as much as I am.

    I look forward to providing many more solid releases moving forward for your enjoyment

    The most stable Hybrid I've used. No lag whatsoever. I dont use the ATT hotspots or spellcheck so the bugs didnt bother me. Battery life is much better than V3. There is still a significant memory leak which bottoms out at 60 mb down from 80 mb.
