    There is in fact a Hybrid OS for the 8330.

    I have not yet installed it, but there is a lot of information in the thread.

    I installed the following version today:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/f52/hyb...-131-a-242109/

    I installed that particular version because it was stated it worked well on Verizon's Network. I haven't made any calls yet, but my BlackBerry seems to be faster, and I have 9MB of additional memory in comparison to my previous version. This is after I re installed all of my applications.

    Whichever one you choose, go the first page for instructions. If you read through the thread, someone has likely already asked that question. That's where you'll find your answers.

    This hybrid OS (thread started by blackngray70):

    http://forums.crackberry.com/f52/hyb...-131-a-242109/

    Contains a base .160 OS, with the following components from the .131 OS:

    .131 radio and phone application files, specifically selected because the .138/.160 radios sometimes suffered from an unstable network indicator that would cycle between 1XEV, 1X, 1x, 1xev in fairly rapid succession. Also, the .131 radio does not suffer from the speakerblast problem that existed from .77 through .127.

    The .131 profiles application file, selected because some users of the .160 OS experienced profiles crashes.

    In total, 7 files from the original .131 OS have been substituted into the base 4.5.0.160 OS.

    As mentioned previously, the reason this particular hybrid was made was to address the specific problems that Verizon users were experiencing with the .138 and .160 OS releases.

    While the question is a legitimate one, a comparison between the available hybrid OS incarnations out there will not be made by blackngray or myself.

    I have tried doing this exact thing, and Apploader will not detect anything new/different to install to your BB. That would necessitate a wipe or a different OS (downgrade) be made first, so that Apploader would be able to load the hybrid OS.

    Clicking "Advanced" and choosing to wipe all Applications & Data from the device (followed by Backup all applications and data before wipe on the following screen) will force AppLoader to do the up/down/side-grade. No need for a JL_Cmdr wipe.

    Then go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8330-v4.5.0.160_P3.4.0.41 but don't open the CDMA or Java folder yet then move the Phone.alx file from the zip folder and replace it with the one you see in the window.

    i dont have a shared folder option when trying to do this.....

    If you downloaded and installed the .160 file to your computer, it should be there.

    Erased, or uninstalled through Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs?

    There is a huge difference. Uninstalling properly removes the registry entries created when a program is installed to your PC.
