    So I tried removing the net_rim_bb_medialoader_ringtones_9500.cod when I updated a couple days ago and discovered today that they are still there! why!? I triple check my java folder before I install the OS and I checked today and it is still in the removed files folder, wtf? Is this the same thing as the sample pics? I'm sure those little bastardoes are still in there too. grrrrr

    I removed the sample pic by manually moving the COD's to the removed files folder. then I disabled my NIC. I was affraid that when I try to install, it was going to the web to try to install. The first time I tried this it loaded the sample pics even though I moved them. they were not in my java folder, but still ended up on my phone. installed the OS again but this time without a web connection and guess what no sample pics. was doing the happy :1244: for a bit. then one time I plugged my phone into my pc and DM said that there was a core update. Hmm though that was odd and did the update. guess whats back on? :irked:

    I give up, not spending any more time on this specially since the way 5.0 partitions your memory. removing samples has no effect on app memory. 4.7 days yes, but not with 5.0

    Try wiping your phone first. Then use shrink-a-os to remove the pics. Then load the os onto your phone. Then delete the OS from your computer so DM won't try to load everything back onto your phone the next time you plug it in.

    Those sample pics must be someone's sacred cows. Darn hard to get rid of.

    might not be everybody's results but SAOS did not remove the sample pics. I had to manually remove the files from the java folder. Also the files in the PC were not a problem with loading it back in since once its removed from the Java folder it wont get loaded back in. That is unless your connected to the internet. Seems DM will go out to the web and try to install the OS that way. Since this happened to me I added DM to my Winblows Firewall to block since all my OS updates are installed using the .exe and I use apploader not DM.

    Side note. Removing samples is useless on OS5. wont gain you any more app memory with the way the new OS partitions your memory. Unless there was a way to change the preset allocated space in the partition.

    Exactly which COD files are you referring to? I have BBSAK 1.7 and 5.0.0.328 loaded on my S1. There are quite a few CODs w/the name MEDIA in it. Please be specific. Thanks.

    These are the files you need to delete, but you will not find them. as of now I dont think there are any programs that can go into the OS5 system folder (BBSAK included)

    media_backgrounds cod
    media_accessibility cod

    So as my phone is being loaded with my newly shrunk OS and my internet is on, those .cods that were removed will automatically be loaded onto the phone anyway?

    Its always better to turn pc internet connection off if you want to modify the OS in any way especially that there is no leaked higher than official.
