    Hi chaps,

    This is my first post on here and it's a request for help. A lot of the stuff on here goes way beyond my knowledge and understanding of the Storm (which is my first BlackBerry) - so don't have a go at me.

    I'm currently on .141, thanks to the posters on this site - you lot - from whom I've found out how to upgrade. By God, with .75 (which at the time I had no idea what that meant) I thought my phone was ****. Now with .141 it's starting to work almost like a phone that, er, works.

    Anyway, I want to upgrade to .148 but don't know how. I've seen that other thread and don't really understand it.

    Can someone tell me in basic *****-proof language how to do this.


    Cheers people,

    You can check out the BlackBerryBase Hybrid Fornax Built 19

    It is amazingly fast and stable on my 9500

    See my sig for the BlackBerryBase link.

    Abyzz, how does this compare against .141?

    Also, are there instructions in English for installing it?

    I've been trialing the 9500 .148/5.0.0.93[9000] Hybrid from Lyrcidal
    for about 5 days now, and this is the best I've had my Storm running in 5 months

    See BlackBerry Apps/Hybrids by lyricidal

    See the links on the forum for more information.

    The Browser is a lot faster, and it solved a rebooting problem I had with version .141.
    Also memory seems to hold up a lot better..

    using Lyricidal's .148/5.0.0.93 hybrid and by far its been the best, only got about 24 hours on it but i noticed a difference coming from 131/132/5.0.0.90 hybrid...faster and more stable.....just install .141 and then grab lyricidals build a hybrid and select what you want and then use shrink a os if you prefer ...works like a charm

    Well aside from .148 it's been a while - or am I just getting impatient VF's official release of the already leaked .141 was more than disappointing too, and there hasn't been much by way of hints of other likely leaks dropping as far as I have seen. Do you have any good news to share with us Patches?

    I had read somewhere (Radio or CX?) that each release is produced for both Storm versions and had been hoping .148 might materialise for the 9500 too. Was it just a quick response to .141 failing VZ's testing?

    well it might be out there somewhere, but chances are it didn't get to someone who wanted to leak it.

    a leak is a conscious action, not an accident.

    Hey Abyzz, guten abend and many thanks for this. Have it installed and first impressions are good, so hopefully all will be well. If nothing else it will be well worth a try
