    Deleting PTT off 8310 using Mac

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    To free up some space on my bb, I was wondering if someone could provide me step by step instructions on how to delete PTT off my bb 8310 so that I have a little more room on my bb. Also, this will help prevent my call logs from being deleted periodically. Thanks in advance for any advice.
    -------
    Also, how much memory does PTT take up to begin with?

    Unless you can install the Desktop Software and Handheld software you won't be able to do this

    Does that mean that I have to use a Windows computer? I do have a windows computer which I can use, but how would I go about deleting PTT? Could you provide me detailed instructions, please? I would greatly appreciate same.

    Re: Deleting PTT off 8310 for AT&T

    Requirements

    Desktop Manager Software (Installed)
    Handheld Software (Installed)

    1. Once you get it all installed navigate to this path:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8310-v4.2.2.184_P2.5.0.40

    The OS version on you PC maybe different from mine in the RED

    2. Locate the Platform.alx and open it with notepad or wordpad.

    3. Type CTRL+F
    and search for this: net_rim_bb_phone_ptt_app.cod

    4. Then you will see this:

    <fileset pttApp="True" Java="1.0" _vendorID="100">
    <files>
    net_rim_bb_phone_ptt_app.cod
    KnJCDE.cod
    </files>
    </fileset>


    5. Just change the vendorID from 102 to 100 like i did.

    6. Save the file and now just start up Desktop manager and plug in your BB. It should prompt to update.


    This method avoids the deletion of the actual .COD files. I found it a bad idea using that method since if you ever delete the wrong file it's a pain to get back.

    Hope that helps.

    Reddog, does doing what you showed me free up some memory? If so, approximately how much?

    Re: Deleting PTT off 8310 using Mac

    That will only free up the space that PTT takes up. Thats all so probably not that much.

    What takes up a lot of space usually is Themes and Media(pics, ringtones, music) if saved on the device memory.
