    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!

    Have you tried our tutorial?We have a great tutorial for upgrading your OS here:

    http://www.blackberryos.com/forums/b...es-videos.html

    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.

    I've shrunk modifyed Operating systems for mostly geeky reasons, manually and latley using BBSAK. Recently I treid BB Boss and yes it does work, if you shrink your OS I recommend downloading ringtones to your media card this will free up space. I shrunk 534 on my 9780 to 137MB that's over 50MB extra you may find though that the speed of your device doesn't increase by any noticable amount. A good way to speed up your browser is to disable javascript. That makes a difference and your device hardly uses it, when you need it just reselect it

    If you want a lighter strppper try this. Google maxmem its a free little app that removes the unwanted stuff in your operating system, and does free up memory follow the instructions and reboot when you have completed all its selections (it will ask everytime you complete a section) then 3 battery pulls to settle it down and your done! Also maxmem will not touch any default themes etc you will gain typically 15/20MB and it won't do any real changes that can effect your devices performance.

    In that case google berrycodermaxmem then download maxmem OTA directly to your device. Select the app, give it trusted status if it asks, then select each option in turn. When each option is finished, it will ask if you wish to reboot now or later, select later. Do this each time until you finish selecting the options, then give 3 battery pulls. When you do the battery pull, let your device boot up fully each time then battery pull again. When you have done that it should be all settled in, and you'll find an increase in application memory.

    When you say 'go online' do you mean when you reboot your device?

    The amount of data stored on your SD card, would not affect your device going online. Could you check clarify these points.

    How much Application memory have you got Free.

    Clear up any old/read Emails texts, and although its a basic thing clean up your browser memory, including pushed content and cookies.

    Ensure any photos/music etc are indeed stored on your SD card.

    The 9700 can run OS6, but OS6 has more data used to run it than OS5, so problems like this can occur. Ideally you would benefit from a simple app maxmem which you download directly with your devices Browser. Follow the instructions and you should free up around 15/20MB extra memory. The instructions can be found on viarious posts in this forum. Finally, first thing I would do after cleaning up old emails, memory is give your device a Battery pull.
    That can give you back some memory, and it will restart the devices OS clean.

    I want to say something about it to lighten your operating system is to install only what you really need, so help you lighten the OS, another is, if you update your BB choose when you are going to drop, as the friend, just put the language you're using, and what applications you do not see is useful not ticked. You'll see that it improves a lot. Greetings

    Also always install the official released OS if performance is a key value to you.

    .. the cods of a leak and official are the same and that is a fact... the only difference is the UMTS file and perhaps the vendor.xml... to boost performance is to have more free space hence shrink the OS as much as possible.. besides the other things that should be thrown away, delete the backgrounds, video, music and ringtone (move it to the Media Card).. that's pretty much how i still have 115 MB with more than18 apps, over 200 BBM contacts, 600++ contacts and around 250-300 messages on 6.0.0.576 (9700)...
