OS Shrink & OS advice
I would like to shrink my OS .402 with BBHTools that I have downloaded. I also would like to factory wipe then load the .402 from my laptop to my bb after shrinking it.
Would one post some step by step instructions as I have searched CB and havent come across instructions all in one place.
I saw a post stressed not to shrink maps as it deletes other files. Is there any other file/s I should leave well alone ?
The reason why I am wanting to shrink .402 which I already have is I hear mixed messages about the latest Chinese .437 and I havent heard much about .428.
If you have suggestions to update and shrink one of these I'd appreciate any suggestions.

If you're using BBH Tool, then anything on the checklist is safe to shrink out.
I would however keep the Latin TrueType font, as that will cause issues if removed.
Ignore the post you read about not shrinking out BB Maps. I've always done it and never had a problem.
As for instructions, you don't need them. Just check off what you want to remove, press Shrink My OS, then install it... job done.

.437 is awful... stick to .342 or .391 until something better comes along.
.437 is just an ancient build with a new number. It's full of bugs that were fixed long ago, but somehow reintroduced into this OS.
.402 and .428 have the embedded IT Policy and sketchy BIS. There's something fishy about that IT Policy...

Actually just running loader would have sufficed. It would remove the shrunk apps, while not requiring a reload at all.WAPers do it With A Passion
