This is a hybrid for the Curve 2 8520/8530 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.
-Install one of the following base OS's first depending on your device:
-Run Willyboy 8520 v4.2.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 .662/.664/.669 build.
-East Asian Language support is included and fully functional.
-Google Maps, UberTwitter, Twitter for BlackBerry, App World all included (optional during install)
-Includes all stock Blackberry games and IM Applications
I wanted to keep the .610 files present in this one for the superb power management. There are NO .610 files in the 8530 release as they are replaced with .654. The .662 Tour files add some stability to the OS and improved memory management. The .664 Pearl files produce some great benchmarks, so expect fast boot times and great overall UI transitions and performance. The .669 Storm2 files produce some phenomenal Internet speeds so I utilized them here as well. 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.
