    MaxMem: A BerryCoder Memory Management Utility Applicatoin


    MaxMem is a free memory management utility created by BerryCoder. MaxMem frees up memory on a device by deleting preinstalled COD files that are unused by the Blackberry Operating System. At the time of this post the latest release version of this application is 0.4, and there are currently 10 different remove modules. By using each one of the modules, the user can expect to have at maximum 5mb’s of memory freed up by MaxMem. The application is not hap hazardous and there are pop up notifications for each file that is to be deleted, making it near impossible to inadvertently delete a file. The pop up warnings are very necessary since any file unintentionally deleted could have catastrophic effects.

    Below is a list of the 10 different delete modules and a short summary of what each one is:
    Remove VAD: Removes the COD files associated with Voice Activation Dialing.
    Remove PTT: Removes the files associated with Push to Talk. This feature is only available on AT&T and Sprint/Nextel.
    Remove T-Mo Fives: Removes COD’s related to T-Mobile’s Fave Fives. The file usually consists of an icon.
    Remove MDS: Removes files related to Mobile Data Services. MDS is only used by BES users.
    Remove Media: Deletes media such as default music, photos, and wallpapers.
    Remove Default Themes: Deletes the theme or themes that come preloaded on the device.
    Remove TID: Removes linguistic data used by Spell check, Suretype, and the likes. This is an experimental feature.
    Remove Foreign Resources: Deletes language translation. Another experimental feature.
    Remove Ringtones: Removes Ringtones. Both default and user installed.
    Remove RIM Internal Tools: Deletes quincy, bug report, battery log, and so on. These tools usually come in a package with a beta operating system. RIM uses these tools to monitor the OS performance remotely. The user should delete this if they are not officially approved to use the beta OS.

    There is a user’s guide located here. But for a quick summary after you install MaxMem, first make sure to backup the device data. Run the application and select the modules you wish to delete. Then there will be a series of questions the user must answer to proceed with the COD deletion. When one is finished with deleting all the necessary modules reboot the device.



    MaxMem is a highly useful memory management utility. It is a great way to free up some memory on a Blackberry and will get rid of unnecessary and unwanted files. However, this application, if not used careful, can cause major malfunctions if not used correctly. Therefore the user should be well versed with backup and restore procedures, and it should only be used if the user is very comfortable with these types of procedures. This is to avoid any avoidable headaches and aggravation. BerryCoder states they are not responsible for any mishaps a user may encounter. THEREFORE USE WITH CAUTION!

    This is a great app and works on the Tour since BBFileScout does not when trying to get rid of the sample pics.

    BB app world and Weather Bug are not working for me now. Any ideas?

    APP World: Invalid signature in response from Blackberry App World. Blackberry App World must now exit.

    I haven't tried the latest version but back from when OS 4.5 came out there were a couple of things to note:

    - Prior to OS 4.5 you could remove all but one of the default Dimension themes and third party themes would still work, with OS 4.5 you had to leave all 4 Dimension themes on for third party themes to work

    - Since the COD's it was removing weren't being taken out of the Blackberry.alx file in the shared load folder when you reconnected to DM to add any additional apps it would reload the files since most are set to load=true. This was both good in that if you made a mistake you could just connect to Desktop Manager, choose the Application Loader and go next and it would reload the modules, and bad in that if you added applications often you'd have to keep using the program to remove the modules.

    Perhaps someone can pipe up if the above out of date info now...

    So i've been trying to use this on the Storm and after running it and deleting what I want to, nothing happens. The memory is still the same, the sample images (for example) is still there. I was reading ur site and it said that there are 3 q'stions prior to deleting. I only get the first 2.

    I'm using Storm with BBCM's v8.5 (tried it on v8 also) hybrid with .151os

    Quiet I never used Max on my storm so I don't know how it should work. But what I did use was BBFileScout and it worked perfect every time on my storm. If you haven't tried that give it a shot

    Here is the OTA link for it
