    Hmm you should see a bigger improvement than that? What apps and themes are you running. Also do this for me as well

    Go to media, pictures, samples is the folder empty it should be if you chose to delete default backgrounds. I know Lyricidal were talking earlier about sometimes shrink not deleting everything you have chosen.

    Did you choose to delete those when you ran shrink? I know this last time I had to run shrink twice to get it to take. Even after the second time the default pics were still there, so I just used bbfilescout to delete them. Since everything else I chose was deleted.

    For what it's worth, some have reported that the default pics aren't removed by Shrink A OS unless a wipe has first been performed. Haven't confirmed this myself though.

    that is a good point when I contacted Lyricidal on this he did release an update that has (at least) for me fixed this issue.
