    Thumbs down How to make OS6 on the 9700 faster?

    I have installed the newest version of OS6 for my BB 9700. But it is still so slow. I barely have any apps just to keep the memory up. Is there some way of increasing the memory? Would it help if i got a bigger SD card?

    Please help! Or else its back to OS5 for me!

    Backup your phone and try again maybe something went wrong the first time. I know its happened to me a few times.

    You can always try a few battery pulls in succession, before you try other options. Sometimes this jolts the OS enough to get things working smoother.

    - v534 is one of the best versions so far.
    - Shrinking OS : The OS can be shrunk by deleting unwanted apps and files such as : languages packs , apps that belong to specific carriers..etc which will make your OS much faster and have a plenty of free memory.
    You can use BB Boss tool to shrink any OS , Download it here
    - Here are the steps for shrinking OS :
    1)After installing BB Boss , run it.
    2)Select what options&files you want to remove.(I Suggest removing languages that aren't used & Carrier themes (keep one theme) + What you feel that you aren't using)
    3)Click Modify on Disk.
    Now you shrunk the OS and you can see the difference before and after shrinking at the bottom of BB Boss windows.
    * I Hope this would help you.

    One thing to add, make sure that you don't remove the default theme of your phone, if there are multiple to choose from, leave at least one.
