    Click Browse, Click Loader Files and choose your latest OS install folder (not the Java or CDMA) then give it a shot, should work perfect from there

    IT WORKED!! I am really sorry. I should have read the directions. You just saved many hours of turmoil. I am donating to your cause now. How does $20 sound? Is that fair?

    no problem, when you're used it working it one way and then it gets changed, it takes a bit of getting used to
    let me know if you got any more troubles

    that sounds great man, appreciate anything really
    thanks either way

    I am always willing to pay for help that makes my Berry run smooth. Thank you again. I am all dialed in here. All the things I wanted removed have been removed. Your help is much appreciated.

    I just ran v2.1 and it worked great...one quick question: I deleted the "default font" and when my Storm rebooted, it's got a funky looking font that's making my eyes cross (more than they normally do...) Anyone know if there's a way to re-shrink the OS but put the default font back on the unit?

    Thanks!

    I am not an expert in shrink a OS. I would PM Lyrical and see what he has to say unless someone with more experience can address your question directly.

    REC7IFY: Sorry I didnt answer sooner, went to bed but:
    by the looks of things when you are browsing, you chose your Java folder, just choose the main OS folder (not Java and CDMA) and you should be good to go

    Winrar is the best program for this. It is free if you download the trial version. I am not aware of any good free, non-trial programs.

    thanks for the help! thats what i thought, that there really wasnt much out there, however for anyone interested, there is a completely free program that i found on download.com called "free rar extract frog" and it is completely free and seems to work pretty well

    thanks guys!!!
