    Are there any other cool things we can do?
    We can
    1. Sideload
    2. Load leaks
    Is there anything else we can do? I know there isn't much we can do somethings androids can because blackberry is about security but is there anything along the lines of customization / tinkering we are able to do?

    If you can be more specific as to what you are asking, it would help. Are we asking about features and functions, or only programmatically hacking or altering the os? In general, you cannot modify the core os, but you can mix os modules for a hybrid. But again, please narrow the context of the question

    No, you can only load third party shells to make it look different but the core below will be unchanged. And the third party shells (programs that run to make your home screen look different) don't seem to be very popular or work very well, in my experience. But feel free to try to load those from app world and try!

    And by shells, I mean something like HTC sense, for example. But in this context, I am sure others that have tried this can give you better advice than myself

    Yes, I think that is what they are called. If anyone has tried those, please help answer the op's questions on your experience. Thanks.

    Haven't used launchers myself, but many have said that the Apex launcher and Facebook Home work great when sideloaded. Only thing is, that every sideloaded app has to be opened from the launcher then .
