    It's been a few days since 7.1.0.205 dropped, but today I finally had time to build and do some testing (aka make sure there's no huge bugs lol) on OSBB 706v2.5. Based on the testing I've done so far, I think this is ready for public consumption.

    Boot time on this is AMAZING! Seriously, I don't think my 9650 has ever booted so fast. Signal seems about the same as in 706v2, and it's too early for me to make a guess on Battery life.

    This build doesn't contain any OS6 updates over OSBB 706v2 because there hasn't been a new OS6 release since then. The only change is that the 200+ OS7.1 files have been updated to 7.1.0.205.

    I expect this to work on all OS6 devices that OSBB 706v2 worked on - 9650, 9670, 93x0, 97x0. That being said, I can only say for sure that it works on my personal Sprint 9650.

    Installation:

    Since the only thing updated over 706v2 is the OS7.1 files, that's pretty much all the hybrid contains. If you want the added benefit of the 6.0.0.723 files, you'll need to install this AFTER INSTALLING OSBB 706v2.

    After installation you will need to re-enable your email accounts.

    Bonus: Some people (myself included) have had problems with scrolling on the latest Official BBM. This build contains an optional secondary installer that will install the last Beta BBM 6.1, which did not have the scrolling issue. Please note that you'll need a keycode if you opt to use that version.

    There aren't any languages included in the main build; however, I've uploaded an untested .zip of other languages that you can unzip into your Java folder.

    If you have any questions, just post here, or in the OpenSourceBB Forums and hopefully you'll get a quick answer!

    Ok, that was weird, not sure why the links weren't showing. At any rate, it's fixed now.

    Is there a way to tell the difference between v2 and v2.5

    Tell between the downloads, or to see if the install worked?

    Easiest way would be to check the version numbers of cods with BBSAK or another PC program.
    If you don't have that option, open options on your BB, go to applications, check the browser settings, and click on net_rim_bb_browser_cookiejar. If it's version 7.1.0.205, the hybrid is installed.

    I installed this hybrid about 5 hours ago and haven't noticed anything wrong. Very fast, quick boot, and so far good battery. I'll give it my weekend test to confirm the battery life. Once again guys, great job!!!!! C'est bon!

    Installed on torch 9800 combined with OSBB 706v2 to get the 6.0.0.723 files, as described. So far seems even more blazingly fast that v2 alone. Love your hybrids. They have revitalized my torch.

    Load went very smooth. Browser seems blazingly fast. I've tried other 9650 hybrids but think the OSBB hybrids are noticeably better. Well done...again!

    First I'd try a battery pull (fixes 90% of errors), then you could try reinstalling the app. If that fails, reload the hybrid, making sure that cod is in the java folder. I have WallPaper Shifter by MMMOOO and it's working fine. Probably a different program though.

    Is anyone else experiencing the missing special characters in the sms mode? I installed the hybrid on Friday and experienced with sms, facebook, twitter, and bbm. As of this morning the sms is the only still missing items. I guess Im trying to figure out if I loaded something wrong.

    I just checked my phone as I running a 9930 hybrid version of 205 and the same thing happens. We will have to look into that. I am not sure, but maybe it is normal. I just checked my 9650 using an older build it is the same as your pics.

    It should Misho.
    Installation:
    1. Install a base os to a pc
    2. Install the hybrid to a pc
    3. Install it to your phone.
    That's it.

    There are at least a couple of good write-ups on installing hybrids, a little outdated maybe, and possibly a little too technical since most of the process is just click and install these days, but here is some good reading anyway:

    bbapi_sendmenu.cod is an error that occurs when you try to run an OS7+ app on an OS6 phone - OS6 doesn't have the api needed to use the sendmenu command.
    Try a different app. If that app worked before, make sure you didn't install an OS7+ version and if possible get an OS6 version.
    A battery pull might also fix it.

    PM me your external IP, we blocked a lot of IPs to prevent traffic leaching and yous must match one that was blocked.

    I think that's a CDMA SMS limitation. Just like how CDMA can't text over 160 characters while GSM can.
    Has anyone tested this on Bold 9700?
    Yes; not sure who, but I'm pretty sure someone did.
    If you want a 9700 specific OS, you can also check out Wu-Wei's B@stard series.

    I think Mike gave you some good tutorials (better than my 5 minutes between classes response anyway lol).
    It really is simple though. Install a base OS onto your PC, then run the hybrid installer, following all directions and reading the steps. The installer takes care of most things for you.

    Change the install directory to install the hybrid over whatever OS you want to use as a base.
