    Question Free Up Memory on and 8120 running 4.5.0.52

    Advertisement



    Hey I have seen older threads about how you can free up memory in the older devices(pre 4.5 os). I am just wondering if anyone has had any experience in doing this since the new 4.5 os is being used. I have seen the post about the max mem and am still a bit skeptical to do some thing like that, where I am not sure I can replace it, were there to be a warranty issue as my 8120 BB Pearl is only a few mos old. Still I am performance minded and want to maximize my experience as I use it daily, rely on it much and keep many apps on there as well. Any ideas stackers??

    The steps will be basically the same as previos threads have mentioned..

    You can also use Memory Cleaner found in Options >> Security Options >> Memory Cleaner.

    Other than that clear out the call logs and the browser cache...

    Hope this helps!

    Not really unless I misread the instructions. When I went to delete the modules specified, they were not there, or @ least have changed names.

    Question Shortcut for clearing out the broswer cache?

    Not to get too far off point but since the discussion was around freeing up memory... Is there a simple program that would allow me to clear the cache on the browser with one simple push of a button on the home screen - similar to the soft reset? Thanks gentlemen, Charles.

    Memory Cleaner will not "free up" memory on your device, it only "cleans" free or erased memory for security purposes, to the extent that it is not recoverable, as in to government specifications for erasing memory. You will see some small difference in Options > Status > File free after running Memory Cleaner, but not much.

    @ the end of the day I have around 9or10 MB left but start with almost 18. I want to get rid of ptt oem themes, minus the zeb one I have to keep, and some of the factory pics/tunes. That should free up a bit, right?

    Sounds about like my 8320. I see you have an 8120, I suspect that the wifi functionality eats some memory as well so it may never have as much as your 8100.

    Pretty much everything you mention would need to be removed by editing them out of the blackberry.alx file, not using DM or applications list....I will poke around and find the instructions for that and post back.

    Thanks Gary I have gone into this and believe me it has gotten a bit more complicated on the 8120, took me a while to find anything, file name looked something like this:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8120-v4.5.0.52_P2.7.0.66\Java\net_rim_phone_ptt_app.cod

    only one i found with ptt in name. In process of backing up now.

    I was a bit concerned that the 8120 was going to be different - those are both older threads.

    Make sure and let us know how it goes!

    I'm wondering how to free up some memory as well. it would be nice if we could install some applications on the memory card. I have an 8gb that I would love to put to use. I have more than 10 medical apps (including epocrates that nearly takes up half of my memory) so I'm afraid to even upgrade to 4.5 when if officially comes out in the US.

    I've found that as long as you uninstall the language packs you don't use, uninstall games you don't use (brickbreaker?), get rid of unnecessary shortcuts and IM-ing apps (there are better, smaller ones), you can maintain, like I do, 8-9 MB of free space at all times.
