    I have heard from many that this OS has a very small memory leak. Perhaps a few battery pulls will help.

    Btw do you guys shrink your os? I find that if I don't I am left with 60mb app memory! And I only have 2bbm contacts, 400 address book entries, a handful of emails since I always delete off my device after replying/reading, around 10 additional apps and themes.. Definately less than tda who still gets 111mb after installing os6 :-(

    Yes, most of us bb savvy users do the shrink.

    I have a 9780 which has 512 MB of memory, after installing all my 40 apps / themes, I am left with 250 MB, plenty if you ask me.

    But guess what, I shrink everytime I install an OS. Reason is, the built in introductory videos that are hidden and protected against deletion take up 23 MB by their own!!! crazy if you ask me, how RIM could use such precious space especially for devices with 256 MB of memory like the 9700 and 9300. Shrinking is vital and will make a huge difference.

    MAke sure to shrink the videos in the shrink options.

    USe the latest version of BB Boss 2.2.2 or BB Hybrid Tool 2.4.8 otherwise even if you select the videos in the options, nothing will happen. The latest versions fix this.

    Any ideas? Changing the drivers to standard RIM ones does not work.

    If I could connect using bluetooth I could use blurts :boggled:
    It seems Windows doesn't know which drivers to install for the bluetooth device.
    You can try installing one manually... Usually after choosing to install manually you get a list of bluetooth drivers available. Chose one until you find one that works...

    Very good advice. Sometimes just unplugging the USB cable and plugging it in another port does the trick as Windows will redetect the device and install the drivers as neccessary, it is advisable to have the BlackBerry Desktop Manager running during this step, then close it when the drive is installed and try installing the OS

    the Black Berry Desktop Manager has to be closed before you run loader.exe to load the OS

    Wow 512mb! *jealous* first time I did a shrink using BBBoss I kept getting 2 errors everytime I reboot and eas told its ok if I can live with it since it doesn't hamper performance. Never did figure out what caused it. The last time I did a shrink I left the advanced options alone, left English language and a font and it seems to have fixed it? Dunno or maybe coz I also left the VVM. Oh well as long as I get no errors.

    Can someone share their BBBoss shrinking list? :-)

    For some reason with this version, every time I pull my phone from the holster it opens up in the search screen....576 did the same thing. The only way I can stop that is to lock the phone before I put it in to the holster.

    Thanks for the advice... sadly I have tried this on a number of PC's with various OS and it does not work whatsoever.

    As soon as I downgrade to OS5, it works instantly. Truly bizarre. Truly frustrating!!

    Sorry Joe, I missed this one for some reason. I don't know of any others with this problem (but then again, I don't really know any people that are willing to try out leaked O/S's like I am)......not sure why I am so lucky to be blessed with this weird deal...lol. I even tried doing a fresh wipe and reload and it still does it. I have gotten in to the habit of hitting the lock button before I holster the phone so it's not bugging me as much as it was.

    6.0.0.600 Is the best!

    After the download is complete, install the file you have just downloaded.



    Next, browse to Computer >>> C: >>> Program Files (x86) >>> Common Files >>> Research in Motion >>> Apploader



    In that folder, you will find a file called vendor.xml, DELTE that file



    While you are in that folder, after you have deleted the above mentioned file, you will find another file by the name of loader.exe



    Run that file, you will now get the screen to initialize the upgrade of the OS on your BB, click next to continue, your device PIN will be listed on this next screen, click next again to continue.



    Now you will be introducted with a list of options to select or deselect the components you want to install.



    Carefully select only the items that you need, do not select all the chat messengers and components you know you will not use as this will eat up your precious application memory which is available on your 9700 (256 MB).



    Please read the tips I will provide you at the end of these instructions to be fully aware of what I mean, this is critical.



    After you have selected the components you want to install, click next, andthe upgrade process shall begin.



    Your phone will automatically create a backup of your settings / apps first, then it will wipe the old OS then install the new one and restore the backup.



    Should anything go wrong at this stage, you will have to wipe your device again and try again, but luckily, we have created a backup file at the beginning of these instructions, so you will still be able to restore all your contacts, emails, settings, etc.

    Well I have to say this version is the worst I have ever used!

    - Battery Drain out of this world
    - Memory loss just the same
    - After I have unplugged the headset, the next call I make it spends a second on handset mode then a second on headset mode. Either 3 battery pulls later, or plugging the headset back in fixes!

    Not impressed
