    Hey guys, I have a quick question:
    I downloaded hybrid file from birdman and got a file titled:

    v7 final.rar

    According to the directions, I need to move the alx files like stated here -

    7. Go to "RIM Blackberry Curve 8330 Hybrid Files" and copy the "Blackberry.alx" into "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8330AMEA_v5.0.0.230_P3.5.0.30"

    How do I do this with the .rar file? When I try to open it the computer wants to know what program to use to open it.

    Any suggestions out there?

    Download the 7-Zip File Manager app from filehippo.com and this app will uncompress the rar file for you.

    thanks - I'll give that a shot

    edit: tried but nothing happened
    downloaded 7-zip and directed the computer to open it with this file - it closes and nothing happens

    Install 7zip, then left click on the .rar file and select "open with 7zip". You may have to reboot your computer as well.

    Still a no-go

    'right' clicked on the icon and chose open with 7zip with no results
    rebooted computer and tried again - still nothing

    anybody have the zip files for this hybrid already - seems like it would be easier at this point to get the files from someone rather than fooling with the rar file, idk

    Download Winrar. They have a free one on their site.
