    to make the phone faster, more stable, better battery life, better signal, just overall a lil snappier. I am unsure of if those are even compatible with your device your base will still be for the 83xx so as long as its compatible with that you shoulod be fine

    Well, after too much reading and posting, and probably driving JNESPA nuts, I decided on the following for my first try at updating with a hybrid.

    I got 4.5.0.169, 4.5 Hybrid with 4.6/5.0 files, and .131 Radio.

    I made a detailed instruction set, step by step, installed everything to the computer and began my journey.

    It went pretty smooth also. Just a couple of places I am not sure I chose correctly or not.

    First, BBM 5.0. In the hybrid there were BBM folders for 4.5 and 5.0. I decided to open the 5.0 folder and copy the .cod files into the Java file, replacing when asked. Since the install never asked which BBM I wanted, I figure I got that one right. And BBM 5.0.0 is listed under applications.

    The next one was not so easy. When I selected Load OS and it opened App Loader Wizard, it gave me a message something like I was downgrading and some of the files were newer than the ones I was trying to install. Then asked something like leave system apps-recommended, or replace.

    I did not have any notes about this but thought I remembered seeing in a thread someplace about downgrading and to use replace when installing an os with a hybrid, so that is what I did.

    There were a few other things that you could install or not, and since I had no idea what many of them were, I defaulted to be safe and include them. I did get Shrink-A-OS to reduce the java file from 42.11MB to 33.42MB, about 20%, so I thought that was pretty good.

    Once the install had run its course, I had the following under Options\ About:

    Blackberry 8330
    Smartphone (CDMA)
    V 4.5.0.163 (Platform 3.4.0.25)
    Cryptographic Kernel V 3.8.5.32a
    Micro Edition Config CLDC 1.1
    ....Profile MIDP 2.0
    ....JTWI 1.0
    ....Media Version 1.1
    ....Pim Version 1.0
    ....File Version 1.0
    ...Bluetooth Version 1.1
    ....Location Version 1.01

    Do these look correct for the install I did?

    Under Applications, it showed Blackberry Messenger 5.0.0

    Under Options\Advanced\Applications\ scrolled down to Blackberry 4.5.0 Core Applications and hit the blackberry button and chose Modules. I scrolled through the list and found about a dozen 5.0.0.140 files and a couple of 5.0.0.8 files.

    So, I think the install/upgrade probably went just fine.

    If I could please get some confirmation as to rather I made the correct choice in app loader, to replace rather than leave, I would much appreciate it. Also if there is anything else on the phone I should check, please suggest away.

    I have not seen the phone lock up or go into reboot by itself or anything like that, but then it has gotten very little use since the install. One of the problems with acute insomnia is that you do not get much time outside the must do daily stuff to actually try the phone out. To see if the loud clicking/chirping/whatever noise was there when you make a call, I called my answering machine up at the shop and the greeting sounded fine. Maybe you need a real voice, or it has to be to another cell phone???

    I was getting some medical tests run today and used the alarm several times to remind me when to return to the hospital and it worked fine.

    I admit that I have not looked in the site's dictionary, nor have I done a search, but could somebody please point me to a very easy to follow and understand method for setting up and using BBM, please?

    Thanks to all, Chris.

    You did it! you didnt bother me one bit.. downgrade was correct option. BBM5 set up is just a matter of going in and adding peoples pins that you know with a blackberry... it alot like the 4.7 cept better lol.. you did everything perfect and you will not have the screech anymore!! You will really like this hybrid. and you took the leap did great work. Let us know if you need more help with the BBM5.0 but if you have used 4.7 you should have no trouble.

    i need some help

    i have got an 8330 coming to me soon and i want to install this hybrid on it once i get it. i have already downloaded the latest 4.5.0.169 OS for the 8330. I downloaded the hybrid files as well as the 131 radio file. if im understanding this correctly, i copy the files from the hybrid zip into the java folder of my .169 install and then just run loader.exe right????

    question, on page 1 it says 131 radio file is recommended for verizon customers, which i am, but in parenthesis it says be sure and rename accordingly. what am i supposed to rename the 131.sfi file to so i can load it on my curve?????

    you can leave it named that as long as you know what each file is.. and everything else you have asked is 100% spot on.

    ...

    Hello Goog,

    Well I did a standard update from the files here, and my screen reads:

    Platform: 2.7.0.105
    App Version: 4.6.0.291 (499)

    I Did not use Shrink-a-OS, but I want to know if there are updates, and I will try to see if I use properly Shrink-a-Os, want that extra 20%, so if you can guide me, I'd appreciate it, also, if anybody knows what we DO NOT need in the phone....thanks.

    Paul

    Since the Hybrid is titled 83xx I do not see why you can not. but when installing a hybrid there is always a chance that you take. I am not recommending you download, but based upon the title I don't see why not.

    If I may ask, I am preparing to "update" a new VZW 8330. I have been installing the "8330/8330m .160/.138/5.0 Hybrid (BETA)" hybrid on untold curves, and all seem to love it. I have my desktop rigged to do it as quickly as possible.

    Now, if I may ask, since I already have this hybrid installed, can I just copy the new hybrid over it? I have the base 160 loaded and I have donwloaded the new 169. But if the 13x sfi file is better, and it appears to be the base of the one I am installing now, then I should not have to install 169 or make the sfi change, correct?

    Thank you for your help!

    You could probably get away with installing the hybrid over it. I personally like to wipe and then load a fresh OS with a new Hybrid. For your second question I am unsure of , but it seems to me you would not have to change the sfi unless you wanted to. Are you on Verizon?

    Referred a friend to this, with a VZW. She had experienced a host of problems with her previous two OS. Very nicely done Lyricidal, 48MB FF on start-up, everything is working perfectly, and she is amazed at the speed.

    Thank you

    Thanks for the help. The saying, "It takes a town to raise a child", well this forum is like that. I read alot and pieced together a list to follow and I was successful. It is nice to try something completely new and, with lots of input from others, be successful.

    I would also like to especially thank Lyrical for all his hard work and generosity at making and sharing his hybrids. Great job!!!

    I will have to do some more digging on how to setup and use BBM as my wife and I just got our berries and have not gotten as far as BBM, so know almost nothing about how to set it up or use it. By the way, what is threaded SMS and why is it such a big deal. Obviously no experience with SMS either :laugh2:

    This all becomes rather addictive. Having just finished the hybrid install, I now see there is a 5.0.0.2xx available. No lyrical hybrid, at least for us regular members, but hey take what you can get and keep on smiling.

    Having 5 rescue dogs myself, I could not help but donate to that cause. The VIP membership comes in at a lower priority and there is just so much $$$.

    I know there is another findings and fixings for the 5.0.0.2xx OS and it seems people are having at least two problems. Mainly, BBMaps does not work nor does app world. Anybody know any more up to date info on how close the OS5 for the VZW 8330 curve is to being completely functional?

    And, as long as we are wishing, a 5.0 OS and 5.0 BBM? Whoo Wee, gotta love it.

    Again, many thanks to all, Chris.
