    Hello. My old Classic is still beckoning me, so I want to use it again. I would like to basically wipe out everything except Hub and GPS. Is there a way to delete most of the other apps and junk? I've scrolled through settings, but I can't seem to determine how. Thanks for your help.

    If you would really like to do a good job, why not re-load it with the latest OS using an autoloader? That will wipe it totally clean and remove all but the default apps.

    Sounds great. But I must confess I don't know what that means. I've seen "autoloader" mentioned on these forums, but I'm a dummy- What exactly is that?

    You will need a PC to do this:

    Go here with the browser of your PC : https://mega.nz/#F!fA0URRLL!P-4nDqc5...5LyhA!uUEXFISb


    Download the second last file Z30............ 1.48Gb zipped file (yes this is correct as the Classic uses the same autoloader as the Z30) to your PC's desktop, then unzip that file using 7-zip program, plug your Classic into your PC and click on the unzipped autoloader .exe file. The process will begin to wipe your device and install the latest OS. It takes about 15 minutes or so.

    You will, of course, need your BBID and password to sign in again so don't forget those.

    The process is very easy -- Good Luck!

    Thanks! Appreciate the instructions. But is there any other solution that doesn't involve connecting to my computer?

    Yes there is. It's a Security Wipe: Settings/Security and Privacy/Security Wipe.

    I personally don't like this option as it quite often takes forever (even days long) and I don't really recommend it. Having said this, even if it does bog down, you can always recover by the autoloader steps I mentioned above.

    Should ditch the SIM card if you are not using that, screen brightness is pretty major too. Using the private browser so you dont cache trackers or other files is getting to be a better and better idea everyday, although BB10's browser does not cache normally anyway.

    Also, I find keeping the font to minimum just works better either in presentation or it is just a bit faster. Watch out for apps that run in the background all the time.
