I tried .148 Hybrid V6 .90 for 24 hours, but to many (3) freeze up and bugs with that radio. I liked the bigger font on the keys, but the freeze (lock) ups are a deal breaker for me. I use my Storm 15 hours a day and any hang ups kill my business.
So far coming from straight .148 and .141 V5.1 before that.
I am 48 hours in and here are my results so far using bbcrackman's .148 Base with Hybrid 6:
--Color is fine
--Battery Life is UNBELIEVABLY LONGER!
--Browser is Lightening fast!
--No freeze ups
--ALL of my 3rd Party apps work. Quickpull, StopTilt, Beyond 160, Storm Slider, BofA, File Manager Pro, Forward w/Edit, PDF to Go, Premium Doc to Go, Quicklaunch 1.5 and 2, Visual Voice Mail, Forward w/Edit, Shazam, Kenny Powers, BBOS Launcher, Memory Manager and Battery Booster
--Camera Speed faster and works every-time (I took 23 photos no issues)
--I am on BES with my company and it works flawlessly
--I can do a back up with DM 5.0 and no issues
--Video works with no hang ups. I did 3 videos today
--Music worked flawlessly with no problems
--The speed of the phone is very impressive
--Pictures and Music load faster in Media from my 16GB card
--Typing with ZERO lag
--Radio is holding at 4-5 bars of 1EXEV (3G). Normally at 2-3 bars in my office) Any improvement is great!
--Accelerometer is very quick. Even with themes!
--Visual Voice Mail works perfect
--53MB at start up vs 52MB before
--Battery Pull seems to load faster than before
--Memory starts at 53MB and 24 hours later I am at 43MB. I can live with that
--QuickPull 2.0 works perfectly
(I have done 3-60 second pulls as recommended by the BBOS team)
I had a bug with StopTilt in my Address Book (Contacts) that is fixed with this Hybrid vs straight .148. Whenever I would start to type in the "Find" section to look up an address, the keyboard would not come up. No problems with this OS.
I am VERY HAPPY with this Hybrid V6 with .148 Radio!!
Best OS hands down for my Storm
My phone did not like the .90 radio.
Thank you and Lyricidal for your hybrids. Without them I'd feel like a first generation iphone user. Much appreciated. Now one finding. I don't know if my bb had a stroke or something but I did a batter pull after downloading (like 20 min ago) and I booted at 45. something. I'm now around 35. something. Not complaining yet. Just posting a finding. Going to try another battery pull.
We recommend 3, 60 second battery pulls. This will completely refresh your device. I would go that route. It also depends on what you have running on your device.

Thank you very much. I appreciate the info
How many 188.8.131.52/90 files are incorpperated in V6 Build? Is it browser only? Just curious.

I made a rough count and there are more than 100 files from 5.0. Since the browser only accounts for about 20 of those it is more than just the browser.
