    Hey Everyone,

    Recently, my company upgraded my Sprint Blackberry Curve 8530 (Running OS 5.xx, to the new Sprint Blackberry Curve 9330 (running OS 6.0.0.522).

    I used the 'Switch Devices' option within the Blackberry Desktop Software to switch over all of my settings/apps from the Curve 8530 to the new Curve 9330.

    Here is my main issue...

    ...IT IS SLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!

    I mean, really, REALLY SLOW!!

    I'm not sure if it is OS 6.x that just plain sucks and is slow as ****, or if it was the 'Switch Devices' option that just screwed me over.

    So with that said, I have a few quick questions:

    1. - Do you have any ideas on how I can speed up this Blackberry Curve?

    2. - I come from the world of Jail-breaking iPhones, Rooting Android devices and WebOS 'Home Brew'. Is there anything like that...ANYTHING at all for this Blackberry??

    Maybe, some sort of lean and mean, unbloated, fast-as-****...custom ROM or Blackberry OS...or something like that??

    3. - Anything I can do to mod/hack this Blackberry?

    Anything?

    Please?

    BJ

    No, you can not hack/mod or root your device. Just jailbreak it. Nahh, just kidding.

    I've seen numberous people having issues after they used the device switch wizard. Instead, use this method.

    Make a backup of selected items, only the items you need, like contacts, memo's, (SMS/Email), calendar etc. Just unselect all the crap stuff like policy items.
    Next, install the OS you want on the device, but don't select the box that you want to make a backup from your device.
    After the OS is fully loaded and your device is running, restore your backup you created from selected items.

    That's it.
    In your case, I'd make a backup of selected items I need, wipe the device (even with BBSAK) and then I'd put the backup on my device.

    Ok got it. Now, in my case, I don't need to back-up anything, just an app or two.

    However, please...there has to be some sort of custom-OS for this thing right??? Something??? Please?

    The BB's version of custom ROMs are hybrid operating systems.

    Hybrid builders mix and match files from several os builds to make an os that hopefully provides the best of them all.

    I'm currently running OSBB 600v8 on my Bold 9650 and I plan on putting it on my wife's 9330.

    Check out the hybrid section of the forum for more information.

    Themes. You can install custom themes to change up the look and feel of the user interface. There's a forum section for that here too. There are a lot of free and paid themes available.

    Be careful your 9330 originally shipped with os5 and is now running os6. Themes for os5 will not work on os6 and vise versa.
    One more suggestion. To speed up browsing, point the native browser to

    www.m.opera.com

    Install the Opera Mini browser. Its a lot faster than stock.

    Shrink your OS before installing it and I always wipe it clean before installing it. Now not to hijack the thread or anything but is there any Hybrid OS for CDMA 9330?
