This is fantastic. I am a recent Windows Mobile convert and have made many custom ROMs.
Thank you for sharing!
Im a little scared to install right now and was hoping you could answer some questions I have.
1) What files in JAVA folder pertain to radio i.e. are there any radio specific files (i.e. GSM vs CDMA)?
2) Is it ok to take any files from 8900 test packages as the resolution matches the tour?
3) What happens if you do a bad flash... is there such a thing as a boot-loader? (i.e. is a there a rescue mechanism, or do we jeopardize our device upon flash?

Welcome to BlackberryOS Juicy.
- The radio file is a single file with the extension .sfi and is found in a separate folder (GSM devices it is GPRS, not sure about CDMA). These are device specific.
- No. OS software is device specific. You cannot use files from any other software but for the device model you own. You can however use any carrier's OS. So long as it is for your device model.
- This is one great thing about BlackBerry devices. They are virtually impossible to brick. We have several guides that can aid in walking you through the recovery of bricking your device.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I am pretty experienced in windows mobile, but very new to BB.

is there anything other than net_rim_os.cod and the *.sfi radio file that will cause harm? Is there more to the OS package than that one .cod file?
I can only answer that vaguely... There are several COD files that are necessary for a device to work. One of the members on here that build hybrids would be better at answering this. But is it like I said, pretty hard to brick a device. Short of the USB port being broken, or other hardware failure, you can recover a bricked device. The Boot ROM is awesome.
