    I was surfing file explorer on my phone to see what's on there and found this. Device/start.app/Contents/Resources in that directory there are all kinds of flash player files. Inside the Start.app folder there are several MacOS folders too that have flash files.

    Is the entire Start.app folder, files for interfacing with Mac computers? Since I will never use it, I wonder if I can delete all of it.

    Got me, I have seven folders under Device, four of which are hidden, and none of them are named "start.app." I'm presuming you might have this folder because you have a Mac?

    Nope. My BlackBerry has never been close to anything Apple or Mac so it shouldn't be infected. I'm on AT&T running OS .353 if that makes a difference.

    If I'm not mistaken, all that stuff is part and parcel of the documentation for viewing on your computer. It has nothing to do with Flash support on the phone itself.

    Note there's also an Adobe Acrobat installation program in there, too.

    There's a reason the volume name is "Blackberry User Tools" Ever wonder why there was no CD in the box? LOL

    I can only guess I don't have it because I'm on BES. Or else it just didn't come on mine. But there is nothing like it in Device.

    Could be. I don't know anyone with a 9810 on BES otherwise I'd confirm it. Heck, I don't know anyone else with a 9810 LOL

    I just deleted all that crud anyway. Who needs Reader when you have CS5?

    Since this is what comes up when you put start.app in Google, and no one has the answer yet, I figured it out.

    This is part of a BlackBerry User Tools program that is made to run on a computer. (The Apple stuff is probably for compatibility.) When you run start.exe it has a license agreement and a Web link to Desktop Manager. That's it. It's useless. All of these associated files and directories in your Media Card root can be deleted:

    files (folder)
    fonts (folder)
    start.app (folder)
    blackberry.ico
    initial.xml
    intro.png
    languages.xml
    start.exe

    That will free up about 200 MB and make things look a lot cleaner. I'm using OS6, OS7 may look different.
