    Willyboy 95xx v2.1 .580-.656/.662/.669/.676

    This is a hybrid for the Storm 2 9520/9550 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.

    -Please pay very close attention to what base OS you install this over depending on device and desired radio!
    9520: 5.0.0.580
    9550: 5.0.0.517 or 5.0.0.607
    -Run Willyboy 95xx v2.1.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 .580-.656/.662/.669/.676 build.

    -East Asian Language support is included and fully functional.
    -Google Maps, UberTwitter, Twitter for BlackBerry, App World, and Xtreme Labs Speedtest are all included and functional (I fixed the alx's! These are optional during install)
    -Includes all stock Blackberry games and IM Applications with loader options.

    So I went a little different direction with this one. I took out the .610 files and decided to go with the .656 base java from the recent 9700 leak. Typically Bold files are SWEET so I thought I'd give it a shot. From messing with this for a day or two the 9700 files definitely sped things up a bit! The .662 Tour files add some stability to the OS and improved memory management. The .669 Storm2 files produce some phenomenal Internet speeds so I utilized them here as well. The newcomer to the group would be the .676 Pearl files. Expect great UI performance from these! They are really quite stellar files!

    For those of you going with the .580 java based builds, you probably won't recognize the same speed as the .656 based builds. However, if you prefer the lower radios for performance or other associated bugs, then by all means please enjoy. There is still a slew of .676 and .669 files included!

    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) and about screen will both read as App Version 5.0.0.662. If you installed the .580 based builds your screens will read 5.0.0.580. If you want to verify you installed otherwise, go to Options>Applications>Menu>Modules and scroll down to see the .656 and .676 files.

    Please post your comments and feedback! ENJOY!

    I have not tested this on .669 so please install at your own risk.
