B@stard Hybrid: Apt (20130118)
Created by wu-wei
Those of you who regularly use my builds know the drill, but this one incorporates new files from the recently-released 188.8.131.525 OS.
I have streamlined this build considerably, and I left many files as base version in favor of stability.
This build has been through just some basic testing, but performs quite well relative to my previous builds.
My hybrids go through testing on several devices, and I am confident that my builds work well on all OS6 devices.
Recommended base OS versions:
9650: 184.108.40.2067 (or 220.127.116.119)
*For all 18.104.22.1689 OS installers, Go to Austria -> Free Download Area -> Endgeräte -> Rim Devices -> *DEVICE* -> Handheld Software 6.0 rel 3159
While these base OSes are recommended, Apt will work over any 22.214.171.124xx or .7xx OS. If you have found another OS in those series that works best for you, certainly feel free to use that one instead.
Please note that some users have reported a "break-in" period with any hybrid. That is, the first day or so has poor battery life, but then things stabilize and we start sipping at the battery again. Battery life is critically important to me, so I am always mindful of those issues (and reluctant to leave my beloved 9700 for some shiny new OS7 device). I have not experienced this phenomenon myself, but I did want to mention that it is possible.
To install this hybrid, extract the contents of this zip file into the Java folder of the base OS you choose to use. On my system, these files were extracted into C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9700M_v126.96.36.1999_P188.8.131.52\Java.
When you extract the cod files into the folder listed above, you should be prompted to confirm that you want to replace existing files. If you are not prompted, then you are probably trying to extract to the wrong directory and the hybrid files will not be installed on your device.
If you do not know exactly what you're doing, then you should choose one of the following options:
1. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL THIS HYBRID.
2. Read my guide on the CrackBerry forums, available here: Hybrid OS Installation Guide
3. Read any How To posts by elite1 in practically any hybrid or leaked OS thread on CrackBerry.com
4. Search the CrackBerry forums and read as much as you can find about how the BlackBerry OS loader process works.
This package does NOT include any third party applications at all. I build hybrid OSes. I do not promote any apps or force users to choose whether they want to install apps they may not want. If you are looking for a particular third party app, I probably have an opinion about it and may be able to tell you where to find it (I'm talking free or paid versions, NOT WAREZ).
Many thanks to my tireless and intrepid team:
