Hybrid Map & Requirements
I'm new to the game but bear with me.
Would it be possible to create a list of which packages are easily upgradeable from one leaked OS to another?
I see the ALX files are basically XML's that show what COD files (JADs) get installed for each package.
Here is an example of what I'm calling a package:
net_rim_bb_help_9630__xx.cod ; where xx is the language id
Is there any manual manipulation that is required when porting an OS or OS package?
I ask because I'm interested in developing cooking tools - I have done the same with windows mobile in the past.
Thanks in advance, and I'm glad to be apart of the community here :cool2:

nice to see you made the transition! idk if you remember me but i mod over at ppcgeeks...
anyways the way hybrids are made.. at least from my understanding is combining the CODS files from one OS to another for example to get the new BBM2 (5.0) onto say your tour... you would copy the CODs from the folder to the OS folder (C:/program files/common files/research in motion/shared/loader/OS folder here/Java
this is where the loader exe looks to install the new OS's. also you can copy the the ALX file (im not 100% sure this is necessary but i tend to do it anyways) to (C:/program files/common files/research in motion/shared/loader/OS folder here
from what i understand the only way to really test is to load them onto the phone and try to boot it... i tried to get the new storm 188.8.131.52 browser running on the tour last night but the app crashed (clearly wont work with this OS yet)
the installs you see are just extracting and overwriting the cods in the os folders.
bbcrackman and lyricidal and OneOfAKindPC are the key guys making hybrids right now
(me and wideawake) created a nice app to help with the wiping and installing process we are testing one that does 3rd party app backups as we speak check

yes i remember you... glad to see you here. hopefully you can add my name to the list once i learn a little bit more.
i know how the hybrids work, and basic cod/alx structure.
my question is along the lines of building a list/map of which packages are known to work from one OS to another. Or is it just a crap shoot from one leaked OS to another? If there are certain 'packages' or apps that work all the time, why not create a list? it would be very useful as testing OS' on this thing is so annoying.... takes like 20mins.
its a complete crap shoot thats the problem... you have to test each package or cod which is why hybrids are such a pain in the ass to make takes so long bc you really dont know till uve wiped and reloaded the phone to see what kind of errors you get.

But I will add the the program they created BBSAK is truly amazing. Thanks again for your effort in putting that together.

Reason: Changed link to our forum
Yes I've seen this; it's more of a "select what you want included" thing though.

2 apps for hybrid chefs
1) PrepIt - put a new leaked OS in a DUMP folder. run my script and it will package every app on its own.
2) PortIt - user prompts on which packages they would like ported into their hybrid rom
hope this makes sense... is anybody interested?
i am lol
