    So I am trying to install after wiping my 9630 the most current hybrid for this phone as posted by irtehun at BBhybrids.net.

    However, when I launch the loader from within Shrinkmyos it comes in and says that there is no os compatible with my device. Do i have to install the stock 5.0.230 OS before I can use the hybrid? The hybrid I downloaded is 100+ mb so I thought it would have everything I needed.

    Sorry if this is a noob question, i've been reading all the How To's and from what I can tell I've done it all exactly... and yes the vendor.xml file has been deleted.

    So... while waiting for a response I went ahead and manually added all the .alx files in the 9630AMEA_v5.0.0.230_P4.2.0.61 folder and that brought up a bunch of stuff to add in the Loader. Is this what I was supposed to do or did i just set myself up for another device wipe?

    you should download and install 230 first, then install the hybrid, but first u check the files you don't want in shrink your os

    you want to install the base os first (5.0.0.230 in this case) and then install the hybrid. once the hybrid finishes installing it should automatically open shrinkmyos and from there check what you dont want installed, shrink it and then install.

    these threads helped a lot when i first did it.
    it applies to v7.11 hybrid but should work in teh same method.

    look at the second post. i did exactly what that guy said to do and it worked perfectly. i used his links and the link to tour hybrid to help me install the hybrid correctly. i did not swap my radio files though

    Got it working and it seems great so far, just have to reload my apps.

    One question, the Media icon now is correct, but instead of just saying MEDIA when highlited it now says: net_rim_bb_file_explorer.Media

    Can that be fixed so it just says media??

    Also, if I did a backup right before I wiped my device (when running 4.7) and restore that backup (now on 5.x hybrid) will all my emails come back etc without screwing up the OS?
