    Question Shrink os7 for BB9900

    Do you shrink the OS for your BB9900?

    I have always shrunk the os for my BB97 due to memory constraints. BB99 have more memory hence do I still need to shrink it?

    Out of curiosity, what do you mean by "shrink the OS"? Are you referring to removing unnecessary items and to reduce the amount of space it takes up?

    If so im not to sure why you would need too. the 9900 has 8GB of internal storage and the Os with most of you apps should take up no more then 2gb max.

    if you could reply with some clarification I may be able to help more.

    Although you do not have an many memory constraints as an OS 6 device, it still does not hurt to remove some of the bloatware. BBSAK if I am not mistaken works on OS 7 devices.

    The only thing I would remove is languages you wont need.
