Great hybrid so far! Browser is definitely faster!
Has anyone gotten Viigo to work?

First of all, nice place you got here. Thanks for the Hybrid! I've tried my hand at them and so far keep winding up with fatal errors.
So I managed to get this put onto my device and got everything restored, but I'm not seeing much evidence that this is the 5.0 browser. There's still no word wrap, and the search bar pull down still looks like 4.6. Thoughts?
Before anyone asks, I did this install from a full wipe, there's only the one OS on my computer (.282 plus the hybrid 1.0 installed). I've tried via DM and loader and done several battery pulls. Still looks like a 4.6 browser to me.
After I followed the installation steps my BBM went back to 4.6 from 5 and browser is still at 4.6. Do I need to wipe the BB before this install? Not sure if the hybrid took and it only loaded the 22.214.171.1242. Any other way I can see if the hybrid worked?
I was up until 1 am working on tis and then crashed. I needed sleep. Got everything running on my phone. Browser seems a bit faster on pages that I knew were slow to load. My memory does look alot better. I still have to setup all my programs again and I'll play with it more during the day.
Thanks for the help Elmer!

how do you know?
How do you know that you are using the new browser? I see the BBM 5.0 but on the list of applications it says that 4.6 bbm is installed and for browser the same. Can someone show a screen shot or IM me through BBM? I followed all the instructions but not sure if it really is working the way it states.

Sorry guys for the late response we are in dif time zones, to answer questions about the Browser here is the answer:
Browser will look same as 4.6, what you'll get is noticeable in performance, and stability.
If you'll like to see more 5.0 features please stop by the FIndings tread for this hybrid and ask there, V2 in the works and more features from 5.0 are to be added, of course based in what you all would like to see.
Thanks everyone for your feedback.
You're welcome Morgase

options > advance options > applications > bb menu button and click modules
a list will pool and you should see a number of different files from different operating systems
hope that helps

Hello fsantiago and welcome to BBOS.

If there is anything else we can help you with please do not hesitate to ask.
By the way here is a screen shot.
Thanks for posting..
