    Default B@stard - B5 (20121210) OS5 Hybrid

    B5

    Created by wu-wei

    I have been tempted to roll back to OS5 lately, so I made a new hybrid. It's been a long time, I think, since anyone released an OS5 build for the 9700....so here's one for those folks who are not willing to make the jump to OS6, but who ARE willing to run a hybrid. I think maybe there are 2 or 3 of you still out there.

    I built this to run over 5.0.0.862, but it should work on most recent base OSes.

    The build includes files from 6.0.0.x, 7.0.0.x, and even some 7.1.0.x.

    This hybrid has been through minimal testing on the Bold 9700 platform.

    I have not personally tested this hybrid on any other devices, or on any other OS versions as a base install.

    I will not be providing any support for this hybrid. I have not encountered any bugs with this build, but I have not run it through extensive testing either.

    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\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9700M_v5.0.0.862_P5.1.0.175\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.


    Again, I will not provide any support for the installation or operation of this hybrid. It is intended for experienced users.

    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 or 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).

    to those wondering: Yes, it has been tested, by me. however i don't have screenshots. depending on the performance over the next few days of this OS6 mix you may see some.

    I don't believe the 9780 has an OS5 version available. if it does, then yes.

    9780 is OS6 only. So no, it won't work.

    While it was built towards the 9700 i believe it will work on an 8520. The base is your own choice.

    The 8520 has the highest current version for OS5 (5.0.0.1093). I used several of those files in the build itself.

    No problem adyltd. I intend to run this hybrid until OS5 dies, or until BB10 comes out, whichever is first, so i'll do my best to provide support.

    Default B@stard - B5 (20121210) OS5 Hybrid

    As soon as I saw this new release from Wu I was sure you've already tested it... Didn't had time to test any other hybrid to my 8520, but based on all the great work that has been done by Wu-Wei, I thing I've found the best!!
    How is it running for you bmercer94 ?
    I've been tempted to rollback my 9105 too to OS5....

    Running well enough, was having issues with file management though, and for that reason switched back to os6. still an excellent OS5 mix. also: envious of your 9105. love the pearl.
