    B@stard Hybrid: Ascot (20130222)

    Created by wu-wei

    Those of you who regularly use my builds know the drill, but this one incorporates new files from the recently-released 7.1.0.865 OS.

    I have streamlined this build considerably, and I left many files unchanged in favor of stability.

    This build has been through thorough testing, and performs quite well relative to my previous builds.

    My hybrids are tested on several devices, and I am confident that my builds work well on all OS6 devices.

    Recommended base OS versions:

    9300: 6.0.0.749
    9650: 6.0.0.707 (or 6.0.0.719)
    9700: 6.0.0.749
    9780: 6.0.0.749
    9800: 6.0.0.749

    *For all 6.0.0.749 OS installers, Go to Austria -> Free Download Area -> Endgerte -> Rim Devices -> *DEVICE* -> Handheld Software 6.0 rel 3159

    While these base OSes are recommended, Ascot will work over any 6.0.0.6xx or .7xx OS. If you have found another OS in those series that works best for you, certainly feel free to use that one instead.

    Many members of my testing group and I have found better results using the 6.0.0.723 SFI file with a full java swap from 6.0.0.749 then placing Ascot over top of that.

    Please note that some users have reported a "break-in" period with any hybrid. That is, the first day or so has poor battery life, but then things stabilize and we start sipping at the battery again. Battery life is critically important to me, so I am always mindful of those issues (and reluctant to leave my beloved 9700 for some shiny new OS7 device). I have not experienced this phenomenon myself, but I did want to mention that it is possible.

    To install this hybrid, extract the contents of this zip file into the Java folder of the base OS you choose to use. On my system, these files were extracted into C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9700M_v6.0.0.723_P6.6.0.248\Java.

    When you extract the cod files into the folder listed above, you should be prompted to confirm that you want to replace existing files. If you are not prompted, then you are probably trying to extract to the wrong directory and the hybrid files will not be installed on your device.

    If you do not know exactly what you're doing, then you should choose one of the following options:

    1. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL THIS HYBRID.
    2. Read my guide on the CrackBerry forums, available here: Hybrid OS Installation Guide
    3. Read any How To posts by elite1 in practically any hybrid or leaked OS thread on CrackBerry.com
    4. Search the CrackBerry forums and read as much as you can find about how the BlackBerry OS loader process works.


    This package does NOT include any third party applications at all. I build hybrid OSes. I do not promote any apps or force users to choose whether they want to install apps they may not want. If you are looking for a particular third party app, I probably have an opinion about it and may be able to tell you where to find it (I'm talking free or paid versions, NOT WAREZ).

    Thanks for continuing your work and support on the 9700

    Not sure if i will load this, as i was having problems with this latest base OS.

    One thing i have noticed with all OS6 installs is that after a month or two of heavy usage, there is a steady degradation of the available free memory. This might be due to app upgrades and such, but it seems the only remedy to this is to re-install or update the OS every 10 weeks or so. Just an observations over several months.

    Cheers!

    Hey Wu thanks for the build. an I am not sure if this was just my phone but my phone seems to go from 79 to 8 % really quick.. i installed with .749 on a 9800. One time i checked an email then looked at it 5 min later because of a low battery beep and it was like at 4% I might just have to do a wipe and do a clean load.. Was just curious if this peculiarity was to my install or if anybody else had the problem. Once again. Wu thanks so much for the hard work you put in

    I certainly can't disagree with that...though 10 weeks is a LOT longer than I usually last on one OS.

    Wow! Really? I put .706 (not a hybrid) on my 9800 about a year ago, and only noticed my system getting a little slower a month or so ago. Was going to try a hybrid, but decided to order a Z10 instead.
