Feeling courageous? Create your own customized BlackBerry OS

One of the suckiest things about playing with beta OS builds for any BlackBerry device is that you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get in terms of reliability and performance. One build might make your device of choice super snappy but come at the price of reception thus making your life a living hell. Thankfully, a wonderful tutorial has been written that lets the layperson cut out the bad elements of a given OS and splice together all of the goodness from another, thus creating a super OS build that RIM could only dream about. So with that in mind, we’re going to be going over how you can make your very own OS build that has killer reception and great responsiveness from the OS that was sent in to us by Sith_Apprentice.

  1. Download the OS that gave your BlackBerry the best reception and the OS that made your BlackBerry work best sans reception and install them both
  2. Go to C:Program FilesCommon FilesResearch in MotionSharedLoader Files and open up the folder for the OS build that has the best reception and copy the lone file inside its GSM/UMTS/CDMA folder
  3. Copy the lone radio file into the GSM/UMTS/CDMA folder of the OS build with the best functionality
  4. Update your device with the custom OS via Loader.exe

Once Loader.exe is done its thing you’re good to go with your custom BlackBerry OS.

Thanks, Sith!
