    copy and paste all the Shrink OS files into the JAva loader and RUN it from there. Then choose whatever you want to remove, and press SHRINK MY OS ... 2 or 3 times so that it removes. You will see the files that will shrink if you have the Java open infront if you. Then use the loader by lauching it from the Srink OS app

    I know where I screwed up. I just put the whole folder in Java. I needed to copy and paste them out of the Shrink a OS folder straight into the Java folder.

    I am retarded. Thanks Bmerdinian

    no they should be gone. but if you dont want the Im's then go to loader and remove from there or just use the DM to uncheck and unisntall first then you can run the SHrink my OS will move the COD files and ALX

    Got OTA off. Now just IM's and Setup Wizard are left and it will not delete them. Oh well. Not a huge deal

    I just have the Icons for all the IM's. I hide them but I dont use them and wold like them off. I think I can find them in the Java file and delete them. Seems risky though

    For some people IM apps are a Service Book from their provider and so even if it is removed, it will return next batt pull. Essentially they are just links to the OTA, not the actually application itself
    and thanks for helping out bmerdinian

    DO a batt pull then run the shrink again from the java folder... make sure if the firewall comes up and asks you if you want to give access

    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.
