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 18.104.22.1685 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: 22.214.171.1247 (or 126.96.36.1999)
*For all 188.8.131.529 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 184.108.40.206xx 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_v220.127.116.119_P18.104.22.168\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:

Alright...thanks for the new hybrid.
Question: I overwrote the java folder with Apt and then shrunk using BBHTool...is is just me, or is the file size quite a bit larger now? Best i could shrink down to was 60.4 MB...for some reason i recall shrinking much more. Also...when i started to load via loader.exe a whole lot of program install options with tick marks appeared. Does the base OS now include all types of apps that were not part of the previous package?
I aborted the install and am remaining on Aikido for the 9700 at the moment.

This is my observation while attempting to set up the OS install directory.

Awesome to see you still working on these hybrids! Spent a little time updating my spare 9700 yesterday Thanks again!

Short report. I loaded Apt after shrinking 749 with BB Boss 2.2 to the minimum. OS install was about 35 mb. Manually removed a few .alx files from the Loader Files directory to match the same alxs that were present on the shrunken 723 base.
Install went great...whatsapp connected and re-initialized. However, browser would not open and would display an error message saying to try the service again later. Likewise, IM+ would not connect and went into a loop of asking to run the IP Configure routine. Did a couple of bat pulls with same results. Have rolled back to Aikido. This mix is not working for my 9700. Anybody else having these issues?
What's odd is BBH Tool would not properly shrink the 749 base. And then this strange broken connection. Yet all other OSs and Hybrids shrunk fine and had no issues such as this.
