    So its (referring only to the rimfilesdelete.zip ) obviously something that you can only do with a fresh install......someone correct me if i am wrong.
    If you upgrade to .71 OS on the pc, then run the bat file from within that directory (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8100-v4.2.0.71_P2.2.0.41\Java), then you should be able to upgrade on the Pearl. I believe there's a way to do a reload of the current OS, but you'll have to search for it, I don't know how. You may need to delete the vendor.xml file located at "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader".

    actually a new OS greater than 4.2.0.64 will alleviate this memory leak issue.

    yes, you can delete unnecessary language support, call logs and such...but in the end, the original OS's the pearl was released with had KNOWN memory leaks/dumps.

    Re: Low Memory On Pearl*

    I just put a new 2GB card into the Pearl. I am not sure how to utilitize the extra memory. I have already removed all the unwanted applications and files (input support, languages, etc). The Pearl boots up with 32MB free.

    Is it possible to move or reinstall applications (Google Talk, Games, etc) into the 2GB card? I also tried copying wall papers to the Pearl using the bulk storage method. However, I can't seem to retrieve / view them using the Media app.

    Thanks.

    Oh I figure out how to move existing ring tones and wall papers from building memory to the card. Thanks.

    Anyone know if applications can be moved or install on the card instead of the build in phone memory?

    The Media Card can only be used to store music, ringtones, videos and pictures.
    There is no way to put programs onto the cards.

    Re: Low Memory On Pearl*

    I placed the rimfiles delete program in the OS folder, but I cannot get the OS to go onto my Pearl. I already have the original upgrade v4.2.1 installed is that maybe why I cant get the OS to load? any suggestions on how to fix this? I need to get rid of PTT and other files just taking up space on my BB.
    thanks

    Re: Low Memory On Pearl*

    You don't have to load the rimfiles delete program if you don't want to.

    You can go into your Common Files/Research In Motion folder and delete the files you don't need by hand. I would highly recommend that you simply rename the file extentions to *.old from *.cod. That way, if you decide you want them back, all you have to do is add the file extensions back.

    The folder you want to go to is Program Files/Common Files/Research In Motion/Shared/Loader Files/[name of the current OS you are running]

    Inside that folder are a few hundred files with the extension .cod

    Each one of those files runs one application or another on your phone. Most of the apps you need. Some you may not. I removed my PTT application from my phone simply by renaming the .cod extension to .old for every file that had PTT in the name. (Approx. 9 of them) You can do this for any other app or theme that you decide you don't want. Once you've renamed all the files you want to remove, plug your phone into your PC and run Desktop Manager/App Loader. It will then tell you that its going to delete the following apps. If there is anything on that list that you DON'T want deleted, just click "back" or "cancel".

    I'll give you the standard "try this at your own risk" line. But if you do a backup of your phone before you do all this, and rename the files rather than delete them, you should have no trouble doing all this, and it will be easy to restore the apps if you decide to go back.

    In answer to your other question...perhaps for future reference... your system will not see an OS you already have installed as an update if you make changes to is. So if you want to make changes to your OS such as unlocking themes, etc, you will need to either upgrade or downgrade.
