    ahhah yer so funny like i said somewhere else in a different thread.. i do like it overall smoothness and new features kick ass, but its just WAY too buggy.. i played mp3s for a while of my mem card and i think i went back to the main menu and i got some error, couldent see it, the screen kinda shunk into an error screen and poop. then i listened to pandora for about an hour and meter berry said i was draining 44%/hour WOW... i also noticed, and if you could conferm, goto a menu, hold the phone upside down, and hit the back button to bring to home screen... the screen goes upside down!

    I am sorry to hear that, rasputin. I do have bugs...but they are tolerable...

    My problem is I cannot get the shrink to work...Tried it today again....and no go, even though it's supposed to work with 5.0....Media doesn't open, no apps work....so I unshrunk and loaded that way....at least my phone is fresh, cause I didn't wipe it for a long time, and was forced to today

    ...and I don't care about memory anymore as the later builds have been good at its management

    Question about what I might or might not be doing right while using Shrink-A-OS.

    I've installed .230 and .323 with this program and have checked off quite a few things I didn't want on the phone are still showing up. Everything is still there besides all the languages. Those are the only things that it didn't put on the phone. It told me that it shrunk it down to 58.7Mb but yet I still only have 37Mb after a couple battery pulls.

    these are all that are still on the phone even though I checked them to be removed:
    yahoo
    AIM
    VZW tones
    Visual Voice
    Flickr
    Google Talk
    YouTube
    Windows Live
    Slacker Radio
    Search
    Etc....

    Since all this was on the phone prior to using Shrink-A-OS do I need to a full wipe of the phone and then use this program? Curious if it's getting put back on from apploader?

    You can double check in app loader whether or not they are checked. It should also give you a summary of what will be removed or added before you go to install.

    It's a way for you to customize the OS so you can increase the on-board memory, sometimes it helps the phone run a little quicker. Give you a chance to keep the software you want and eliminate the ones you don't need.
