    I know some others have had similar problems like you are saying, if you head over to the 83xx subforum and look at the hybrid (beta) thread they are working on solutions to try and fix that. Post your situation there they might be able to help you with that!

    Will the hybrid allow us to run the new BBM when it is released?

    unknown at the moment, but i'm gonna go with not this version. I have a feeling that 5.0 is going to make it to 8830 eventually. Think about how many corporate users are still on 8830's its the most popular business phone. I dont think they are going to all upgrade to a new device especially since they are still using them and setting up accounts with 88xx phones in the present time.

    i think with time we will get 5.0 for 88xx. CX has mentioned it before that they are and have been testing 5.0 for older devices (pearl, curve, 88xx) and I think we just have to wait for it.

    if not, then once we discover more compatible 5.0 files we'll build more hybrids with further 5.0 functionality.

    i'd put money on 5.0 coming out officially for us though so don't worry, it might just take a while

    thanks skunkd, i just checked my free file and it's at 8128868, is that decent or way too low?

    u have a little over 8mb of free space, its enough for the phone to operate quickly at, but if it gets tight on memory it may shorten your call log and remove older sms messages and such as it needs.

    The OS begins to do this when under 10mb file free when it needs more room for running apps.

    to me thats no big deal, to others it is.

    i sometimes run with only 1-2mb file free myself and its still ok but it will delete older logs.

    10mb ='s ~10,000,000 bytes which is what is recommended to run above without deleting anything on its own.

    8 isnt bad for us 8830 users we dont have much to begin with so i wouldn't worry much.

    (I think) I followed the instructions to upgrade from straight ".160". All seems well, but on the about screen there is no mention of OS 5.0. Did I screw something up?

    Thanks!

    Also a big thanks to the OP!

    Gives me something to play with until VZW ships the 9630!

    Off topic: I'm a little surprised/disappointed that with the U2 cross-branding that it wasn't released as the 9360--since U2's tour is billed as 360. I know it messes with RIM's labeling CDMA devices as XX30, but it would have been a cool tie in as far as VZW was concerned. Too bad U2's new music leaves me longing for the Joshua Tree era... Oh well, I'm still stoked about the BB "Tour."

    What does it mean to OTA "the precisions?" (I know what OTA means.)
    I'm gonna try this when I get back to a computer. The media player in .160 suh-ucks.

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Quick update...

    First off, I'm not a "theme guy." I have used the standard RIM zen theme since I got my 8830. The bottom dock OS 5 theme that Sunkd linked, just rocks.

    Now the not so good: My free memory is no better than any of the 4.5 OSs I've tried. The likely memory hog culprits are my favorite apps--Viigo and Weather Eye (along with Docs to Go). If those didn't eat RAM, I might not lust after the Tour since my business international travel has slowed along with the world economy.

    Back on subject--I'm happy to have a cool new theme to play with. The true benefits of the hybrid OS are a little hard to identify so far (but still cool to play with). Is there a way to tell if I did the 4.5.0.160 to 5.0 hybrid conversion correctly?

    Thanks, and have a great weekend!

    Hybrid OS loaded without issue. I see improved battery life and a bit more memory available (about 1MB more). Also - the bottom dock theme is awesome. I have always went back to the default vzw theme on my 8830 as the other themes I have tried just don't do it for me. The bottom dock theme you posted is staying on my bb. Thanks!

    Thank you so much for this skunkd!! I've loaded this and it worked fine. I don't see any noticeable improvements except for the new theme.

    Thanks again!

    The O/S is unmodified so you won't see any drastic changes. I will admit that the BB 5.0 browser is speedy, but this is nothing to get too excited about.

    I'll actually be impressed when the 8830 progresses past O/S 4.5.

    I just installed the 5.0 hybrid......then I downloaded and installed the precision L theme......got confirmation that it installed correctly and shows up in app list, but doesn't show up on theme list.....any ideas?

    I did remove all themes except for dimension zen and dimension L, could that be the problem?

    Is there a way to verify the Java files were installed? Besides the theme, I don't really notice anything. Some have mentioned the Browser is upgraded. Is there a place to go to verify?

    I'm just wondering if my install didn't stick or somethin'

    to notice the difference, you need javascript enabled. its in the way the browser handles java where the speed boost kicks in.

    i forget the shortcut for the module screen which lists which version files u have
