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 ?
    Thats pretty much correct. First you install the regular base OS, and then when you install the hybrid, the hybrid installer will replace certain files that are already installed. If you only install the hybrid, you will end up missing files needed for a complete OS.

    Correct me if I'm wrong here- which i probably am, But I think that a hybrid is 2 OS's combined into one, or sometimes, several different OS's combined into one OS.

    Again.. Feel free to correct me if Im wrong here

    You are on target. Elements of a stable OS (official or leaked) are combined with other OS's to make 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
    That's good information.....:cool2::cool2:
