    What is the best OS for a unlocked 9550 running on AT&T?? The phone seems to be working fine except it bounces for EDGE, edge, GPRS and gprs. Ive searched all over the web but couldn't fine a complete answer...


    Also in Options>Status it says i dont have an IP address - is this some thing i need to be worried about?? The browser works fine (for a blackberry...) and i got the email to work even tho i couldnt keep the AT&T pushed apps to stay on the device.

    .517 works great for me, unless I try to stream from Pandora, Slacker, FLycast, etc... then I drop to edge. All other times i hold EDGE perfectly.

    It is the only OS i have tried though...

    I only have the IP address on that screen if I'm connected to Wifi.

    So .517 doesn't bounce in and out of EDGE at all??

    Right now I'm running 'Alexander Ekin 9550 shrunk Hybrids V662' which works great except for the bouncing...

    for me, it does not. I hold EDGE very well.

    I could be wrong, but with hybrids, I believe the base is the only part that will effect your signal. I think the hybrid files are just application files and browser and such.

    The hybrid I'm running now is based off .607.

    I'm going to try the official OS 5.0.0.517 you recommended and see what happens-I has looking around for the 5.0.0.517/.664 Hybrid (in your signature) but didn't have any luck...

    It was by Lyricidal. I moved on to a .517/.669 Lyricidal Hybrid. I just updated my sig.

    Here is a link to the .517/.669 hybrid:

    also, in this forum a couple posts down, you will see OOAKDPC posted a new hybrid with .676 Java files. I've always had great luck with his builds. I used his .517/.591 and .517/.643 and the memory management was incredible. I could go a full day of heavy use and not drop a full 1MB in memory. Unfortunetly, I still seek excellent battery life. I think a need a whole new base OS for that. No matter what hybrid I load, I get similar battery life.

    Thanks for the tips 'Blacklac' !!

    On your Storm does the pushed AT&T apps stay on the device OR does it even matter??

    Actually I do not have any pushed app on my phone. I don't really know why, but i wont complain either. Everything seems to work fine so... The pushed Apps are just Download Links anyways.

    I used .320 AND .517 with the Storm 2 on AT&T and they were both making me constantly be in edge...I changed to .607 and stay on EDGE
