    Great right-up,Bryan. That looks like you

    Will help clear up a lot of commonly asked questions

    And things that people are curious about

    But afraid to ask. Not to say, people aren't still encouraged

    To ask anything they need to know.

It is not clear to me where Shrink is applied and how the changes are applied, especially since you have to install 132/148 V7+ first then come back and apply Shrink and do ??? to complete the process.

    Thanks
    Hey Phred

    What you need to do is install the OS you want to your PC first so in your case install .148 OS to pc then install V7 over that. Then run shrink and browser to your OS folder on the PC ( c>program files>common files>research in motion>shared>loader--then highlight your OS folder in that


    then choose the options you want to shrink off your phone and when you are finished then click the launch loader button on shrink. That will initiate your OS install to your phone.

    Re: Detail on Shrink with BBC V7.1.2

    Bryan - Thanks for the more detail.

    smcoldbb - Downloaded and installed 132, save the 132 radio file, downloaded and installed BBC V7.1.2, copied the 132 radio file to V7+, wiped my phone, and used Loader to upgrade the phone. Have done my 3 battery pulls and have been running 132 V7+ on my phone for a couple of days.

    Certainly would like to regain some of the memory by shrinking the OS. That is where I am.

    Per Bryan, sounds like I need to run Shrink against the 132 V7+ installation directory and launch Loader from Shrink. And, I may have to run Shrink a second time to get things to work, if I do not see a memory increase after the first time.

    Do I have that right?

    Thanks

    Sounds good if you already have the OS on your phone then yes run shrink against the OS folder on your PC then launch loader. It will then show a loading screen, but should start saying removing "blank" whatever you chose to remove off. Doing it against an OS already installed on the phone you might have to do it twice. But yep sounds good to me

    yes that sounds right. shrink a os must be done B4 you load onto your phone.

    I will mention that bbcrackman recommends that we NOT shrink these os's

    SM that is incorrect you can run shrink on an already installed OS if you wish
