Do you know why I can reload from Shrink OS? All Langs are listed there?

The languages are ALWAYS listed in Shrink a Os ...even if they aren't included in your operating system that you've downloaded. But, if you haven't downloaded the ALL laguage OS they aren't available for loading onto your device. You do need to download the all language OS version to your pc, install on your pc and THEN load it to your device. You could use shrink in this process to eliminate the other languages you might not want along with other things shown on the shrink template. Hope this helps.

Ok, well this is a Verizon phone so how do I decide which OS to load from the website you sent?

scroll down to north america, then verizon wireless. Follow on screen prompts and it will take you to download .148. It will take you directly to the verizon site and you'll be getting their official release. As far as I am aware, it includes the languages (but not certain).

Is that not the same OS on this site? Verizon official?

Not certain...Did you use the one from this site? Not sure if it's got all the languages or not...but going to the site I linked for you is the MOST official release of OS .148 you are going to find. It's straight from Verizon. That's about all the info I can offer.

Using v3.9 of Shrink-A-OS and I am unable to restore the OS using the "Put it Back" function. When I click "Put it Back" I get an error message. It appears the problem is the application is missing a "\" between the name of the OS files and the "RemovedFiles" directory.
Example, it's trying to restore from OSxxxxxxx\JavaRemovedFiles instead of OSxxxxxxxx\Java\RemovedFiles. Anyone else having this problem?
Maybe the screen capture makes this more obvious what I'm trying to say (I've highlighted the issue):
Instead of "Files\9530-v18.104.22.168_P22.214.171.124\JavaRemovedFiles'." this should be "Files\9530-v126.96.36.199_P188.8.131.52\Java\RemovedFiles' - with the "\" between "Java" and "RemovedFiles".
I have also attached the debug log with all the details. This appears to be tied to one or a subset of files. My original "RemovedFiles" directory after shrinking is 183 files, after clicking on the "Put it Back" the "Removed Files" directory has only 53 files in it - so it put back many of the files before the application errors out.
I was able to track this down to one single option being selected. I encounter this problem only when I have a check for "Galacian" under "Languages" and the "Put it Back". If I uncheck the radio box the "Put it Back" works fine.
Strangely, there are no files that are selected when I shrink the OS to remove "Galacian" language, so it's a file that I don't have in my .151 files.
