    Welcome to BBOS!!! The reason there is no .exe file is the hybrid needs to be installed over a base OS on PC, then loaded to phone (usually one recommended by hybrid maker). As far as loading to Javelin, I am not sure. If it's same 8900, then possibly, but I would wait for bbc to confirm.

    The first link labeled 250 is for .250 by itself (which if you don't have installed on your PC then you will need it)

    The second link titled 8900 v1 is just the hybrid which installs over .250 on your pc

    I can't recall anyone saying that it doesn't.

    Welcome to !

    To answer your question... I am not 100% sure of improvements you will see as I run a 9530. You may want to read back through and look at some of the user feedback in this thread. As well remember that you can always go back to what you had.. But I am sure that you will love this build!

    Welcome to !

    A hybrid is a compilation of the good parts of different os's that have been combined to bring you nothing but goodness!!! I do not run an 8900 so not to sure on exacts but I would expect a snappier faster phone

    Really? Oh sweet, I should give it a try then? Is this the same as other OS's? (Loader.exe method) Also what about compatibility with hybrids? I need to run BuzzMe.

    Installing over a clean OS means that if you have an OS already installed on your computer that you have modified, you should uninstall, and reinstall. Here are some general instructions on how to install a hybrid.

    1. Uninstall all other OS from PC thru add/remove programs, restart PC
    2. Download AND install base OS to PC
    3. Download the desired hybrid
    4. Double click on hybrid installer and follow instructions to install it over base OS. (Follow specific hybrid installation instructions per hybrid maker's recommendations)
    5. Back up your phone AND 3rd party apps (click on guide in my signature and there are steps for each process)
    6. When back ups all done, wipe your phone with BBSAK (http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/3...nife-beta.html)
    7. If you would like to shrink the OS, here is a link to Shrink-A-OS: http://www.theiexplorers.com/bb/Shrink-A-OS.rar
    8. Delete vendor.xml file in c/program files/common files/research in motion/app loader, scroll to the bottom (if you use shrink a OS, it deletes it automatically)
    9. Double click on loader.exe or from shrink, click launch loader.exe
    10. Wait for it to be finished, then restore everything through Desktop Manager
    11. Do 3 60-second battery pulls (pull battery, wait 60seconds, replace battery, wait till phone boots up, repeat total of 3 times)
    12. Set everything up the way you like it and enjoy your phone

    HELLO and good afternoon Mr. Crackman sorry for my ignorance. I have been a member for awhile but have not posted much. I went back on your post reading about Hybids but i want to make sure i understand. I have the 5.0.238 for the Bold & 8900. you have stated to download the hybids over those OS.( I am learning so please excuse me). Why? does it work in conjunction to the regular OS ?
