    If anyone else has any files that they think should be removed from the Storm OS then now would be a good time to post them here. Thanks.
    File analysis follows. Fortunately I am very attached to my Bold, no Storm here.

    9500-v4.7.0.78_P4.0.0.98 (Vodafone Germany)
    9530-v4.7.0.76_P4.0.0.96 (Bell Mobility)

    File listing is essentially the same in these 2 builds.

    Branta, Thank you VERY much. I will get right on this. You have done the community a great service, once more. Yo da man.

    If you are in the vicinity of either Bromley or Reading at Christmas, I'll buy you a pint. Thanks again.

    Pete6, I used CrackMem for the first time this morning when I needed to reinstall my O.S. and I want to thank you for an excellent tool!
    12-08-08 05:30 AM
  6. Pete6's Avatar
    I just put up CrackMem v3.1. It has a bunch of stuff for the Storm and a fix to remove the AT&T theme on the Bold.

    Since I currently havean 8310 Curve, I have not been able to test the changes on actual phones. The files are moved just fine to the RemovedFiles folder so I guess that they work.

    I welcome your comments and feedback as always.

    since i only use my downloaded ringtones is it possible to remove the old ones that my curve came with? As well as the themes?
    12-08-08 05:11 PM
  12. jeffh's Avatar
    Because some users reported problems after removing the preloaded ringtones, the conventional wisdom is that it's best to leave them alone. You can remove them with CrackUtil if you want to experiment. They are all in one cod file, and don't take much memory. If you use CrackUtil to remove them, you can easily replace them if needed.

    Much the same reasoning applies to the BBDimension themes. Many 3rd party themes build on the Dimension themes, and won't work if the Dimension themes aren't present. You can always delete the carrier themes. Just be sure not to delete the theme you are using at the time. I only use the BBDimension Zen theme, so I deleted Today and Icon without a problem.

    Pete, i didn't see in the OP what the purpose of this program is. Maybe I just missed it. Can you fill me in?

    Also, I installed and tried to run V3.0 a week or so ago and it told me no OS recognized as it has with others. What do I need to do?

    OK so i don't know why its not working for me Pete. I followed all the instructions as you had said. Seems like an awesome little program!!! i loaded the OS on my XP, opened DM my pin showed. clicked the X to close it. then opened crackmem and selected my OS and clicked confirm. Then checked my modules, and clicked execute. The popup came up and i pressed ok. I click on Desktop manager and nothing happened at all.....(i was like WTF) lol all that suspense and it just didn't do anything. No but pete if you could please provide feedback it would be greatly appreciated. Im using DM 4.7. carrier is Verizon and i currently have .75 on there and im tyring to load bell .76.

    CrackMem allows you to exclude certain OS modules from being loaded, thus freeing up device memory. It automates many of the manual editing steps in Reed McLay's Memory Optimization Procedure, and makes recovery easy if you make a mistake. Look at the MOP and you will have a better understanding of what CrackMem is doing. You can find the MOP in many of our sigs, and in the How To forum.

    The error message about no OS means you don't have your BlackBerry OS installed as an application on your PC. Double-click the OS exe that you downloaded and it will install on your PC. Then CrackMem will be able to find it.

    That doesn't quite make sense to me. If I downloaded 4.5 and my DM now shows 4.5, then how is it now already installed?

    Could you be confusing the DM version 4.5 with the OS version 4.5? It's unfortunate the numbers are similar; they are two different installations.

    Kudos again to you Pete. I used the latest version to upgrade to OS 4.5.0.110 last night and everything went almost perfect (nothing to do with CM).

    With your number of posts and you current probable level of BlackBerry knowledge you should most likely not be attempting an upgrade.

    However please describe just what you have installed, where you have instaled it, what you have downloaded and what you are runnig it on and we will try to get you up and runnig.

    Upgrading an OS is not for beginners. It really is not. OTS carrier upgrades are fine but usng CrackMem and DM + OS is a complex but not a complcated process. Even so, many things can, and do go wrong.
