    Things to stay away from when shrinking
    Default settings like
    Themes
    Ringtones
    Wallpapers

    Takings things out like this can lead to problems in the os. So just stear clear.

    It is okay to shrink a lot of the items out. Make sure you just stay clear of the default items mentioned above.
    I will add in later what i typically shrink out with a Screen shot of my saos

    All I can say is WOW. Just finished installing, rebooting, restoring and entering all my registration keys. I have 44.4 MB memory right now. I don't think it has ever been that high with apps installed. I did do this install a little different than I have done in the past, so I don't know if that contributed to it, and I thought I would share the steps I took incase it might help someone else.

    1. Uninstalled all OSs on PC
    2. Deleted the OS folder that remained in the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files" folder
    3. Rebooted PC
    4. Opened Blackberry Desktop Manager and did a one-way sync of contacts, etc. to PC and did a backup.
    5. Opened BBSAK and clicked Backup Apps
    6. Installed Wind Hellas .509 OS on PC
    7. Rebooted PC
    8. Installed this hybrid
    9. In Shrink-a-OS removed basically the same settings as Jasper0201
    10. Opened BBSAK and clicked Wipe Device and waited until I got the 507 code on phone screen and exited BBSAK
    11. Went into the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader" folder and double-clicked on the Loader.exe and then I selected the apps I felt I had to have on device (I was more selective than I have been in the past, but still selected about 12 apps) and then clicked next and let it install.
    12. When it was done and the home screen was up I safely disconnected from PC and checked my memory - I was at 43 MB. I did 3 battery pulls with over a minute with the battery out each time. At the last pull I checked my memory and it was at 48.9 - WOW.
    13. Opened Blackberry Desktop Manager and instead of just clicking on the restore button, I went into the advanced section and opened my last backup. I very selectively chose which databases to restore.
    14. Pulled battery again and then loaded a few more apps since my memory was so good.
    I have dropped to 41.1 since I started typing this (I'm not on my phone doing this), but I don't think that is bad. I had to go on the browser to get to my yahoo email account to get some of the download links I had saved there to load the additional apps and the browser was very fast. I had quite a few hour glass moments with the last hybrid I had, but haven't seen any so far with this one.

    I will post more next week after I have had a chance to use my phone normally and the OS has had a chance to settle in.

    As of right now I highly recommend everyone try this one!!! Thanks Willyboy6 for the great job!!

    Don't you use/need DocsToGo? How would you view a Doc attachment to an email?

    If you use or need that application simply do not shrink it. I do not use it.
