    Finally OODLES of free space

    Advertisement



    Two nights ago I borked my blackberry. I delete the wrong theme via javaloader and I got the very generic black and white screen w/ SMALL icons.. reminds of of "The Window Manager" under Linux. So I wiped my BB Clean and did the typical Reload of the OS. I know that you can normally choose not to elect to install certain things like BES items, the 2Meg Sample Video, Other languages, etc. By biggest pet peave afterwards was I lost my ability to read Japanese on my blackberry. To sum it up I re-installed it much better and cleaner than the old method (Saved me about 3megs). I also found another thread about how to cleanly delete other unnecessary items from the blackberry. One of those is deleting those evil "Default LOCKED Pictures" within Media>Pictures>Preloaded Pictures. Also since I use MP3/wav files for every notification imagineable I also delete the default ringtones on my blackberry. Together that saved another 1.84MB. What puzzled me is that this information isn't stickied anywhere at least within this forum.

    Specific to the 8830 that I have:
    move the following out of
    C:\program files\common files\research in motion\Shared\Loader Files\ (YOUR OS VERSION) \Java into some other folder elsewhere. As one person said.. make a unused folder and move that stuff in there.

    net_rim_bb_media_tunebundles_qualcomm.cod (Ringtones)
    net_rim_bb_media_8830_320x240_b.cod (Those evil Locked pictures under Media)
    net_rim_device_apps_games_brickbreaker.cod (Blah.. it was better on the swivel blackberries)
    net_rim_device_apps_games_brickbreaker8700Resource s.cod (See above)
    net_rim_theme_bbdimension_today_320x240_b.cod (Don't use it)
    net_rim_theme_105_zen_320x240_b.cod (Don't use it)

    If you get theme-delete happy DO NOT DELETE, you can play around with deleting it.. Then you'll understand what I mean as far as black and white and small icons
    net_rim_theme_bbdimension_zen_320x240_b.cod (THIS IS ESSENTIAL, DO NOT DELETE)


    Once you're done moving files around:
    1) Open the Desktop Manager
    2) Click on Application Loader , click Next
    3) Click Next again
    4) You'll see some items its going to delete , Click Finish and let it do its thing
    5) The blackberry will reboot and just check your memory.

    Other tips:
    Hold Down the ALT key and type L G L G then let go of the Alt Key. You'll get to the Event Log, pull up menu and CLEAR LOG. Then pull up options and scroll down to anywhere below the top area so that you are on any of the checked boxes. Pull up the menu key again and select "Hide all types". That will untoggle all that dumb logging which you'll most likely never use. Pull up the menu and save then exit out and you're done. This will tremendously decrease the 'memory leaking' issue.

    Before I messed up my blackberry I averaged around 3MB of free space. Now I'm average about 15MB of free space. I'm much more satisfied with my Blackberry now more than ever.



    **DISCLAIMER**
    Obviously BACKUP your device before attempting anything. If you mess up anything don't blame me.

    I did something similar to my BB 8100 a few weekends ago. I took it a step further though, deleted VAD. And I went from about 6MBs free to 32MBs free. And yes I went a little delete happy with the themes and experienced the black and white small icon theme. I decided to not mess with the themes too much after that.

    Yes it has been covered before but its so buried deep down in thread-land that newcomers would probably never go beyond the 1st or even 2nd page to find this info... Yes there is the search function but we don't know who is patent out there. I ventured and searched... i was able to find more of what i was looking for via google. Though at times i'd see people asking these questions and they were met with 'cant be done' or no answer... So if anything.. its good for a thread like this to pop up once in awhile... I wish there were more of them out there. But hopefully newcomers can get this info rather quickly and put it to good use. I'm just still stoked that I'm sitting in double digits as far as free memory.

    Remove all the unnecessary language files, too. I hover around 30 MB free on my 8800 (and that's with plenty of 3rd party apps installed).

    You should be able to see and deselect them via Desktop Manager.

    Re: Finally OODLES of free space

    Or, if you're messing around in the LoaderFiles\...\Java folder, they're all the files that look like this:

    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__ar.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__ca.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__cs.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__de.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__es.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__fr.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__he.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__hu.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__it.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__nl.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__pl.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__pt.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__pt_BR.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__ru.cod
    net_rim_bb_crypto_resource__tr.cod

    The 2 letter suffix identifies the language.

    Remove or rename the following to free up loads of memory: (you'll lose custom folders and the preloaded contact icons, too, if I remember correctly)

    net_rim_bb_media_320x240_b.cod
    net_rim_bb_medialoader_video_320x240_b.cod
