Switched to the new BBcrackman v3.5 no problems works great! After dong the os shrink i have 53mb free never had that kinda free memory b4! WOW:beerchug:
I am having the same problem that Pain is having, as far as the IMs go. I used the shrink and they were gone on the initial load of my os but after every battery pull they come back and I have to delete them through service book in options. Maybe it is something with VZ though because I noticed Pain and I are on VZ and bmerdinian is on Telus..????
Update-I get everything to be removed that I needed. have noticed that in my IM there are still the icons for the 4 IM's, however they are just links that take up very little space. The only way to get rid of them is to delete them from the service books area in options. However, after battery pull they are right back in the service books. I figure it is a Storm hardware deal and they will never be off so I am leaving them alone.
Hope this helps. The "Shrink A OS" works great and I recommend it to everyone.
updated to V1.3.7 - Auto-deletes Vendor.xml now when you click Shrink for easy install, Asian and Russian languages are now keepable
Quick question about Shrink-a-OS....I ran the program a week or so and it worked great, however I just realized I never deleted the "RemovedFiles" subdirectory that's sitting in my Java folder. Do I need to delete this to get the full benefit or can I leave it there for good?
You can leave it there for good, as long as the .cod files are not in the Java folder itself they won't be installed.
Excellent. Thanks! Also, I ran the program hoping to get rid of the extra pics/backgrounds that are on the Storm. I clicked on the button to delete those, however when I "view photos" on the device, I can still see the pictures. I checked the Java folder to see if that big "...backgrounds" file is in there and I don't see it...does that mean it's gone? I'm just a little confused since I don't see the file but can still see the "pretty pics" (read memory hogs) on the phone.
I've had the same problem. The file gets deleted, but the pics are still there.
For that, I recommend BBFileScout.
If you don't know how:
Download BBFileScout OTA,
Open on your phone and:
click system, click samples, highlight the folder "pictures"
then click BB button and Delete 'pictures"
This will get rid of them (you can also get rid of the other sample images here aswell)
