    As it happens, I had an occasion to try Put it Back and discovered that too.

    I will test the new version now.

    OK,
    This is very simple.

    HOW TO REMOVE SHOP APPLICATIONS

    From your device you will:
    Options > Advanced Options > Service Book

    Here you will find a list of the service books RIM sends to
    your device WHICH ARE ONLY SENT UPON REQUEST.
    This way this method doesn't need to be done often,
    unless you request your service books

    This will not effect any other applications on your device.
    It will simply, and only, remove the shopping apps,
    thus help somewhate with memory but more importantly
    just getting those dang things of your phone!

    Depending upon your carrier the service books will look
    something similiar to this:
    AT&T:
    Media Mall - Streaming Music [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - MusicID [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Theme [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Applications [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Multimedia [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Graphics [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Games [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Shop Tones [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Music [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Community [BrowserConfig]
    Media Mall - Tunes [BrowserConfig]

    From here, simply hit the menu button then delete.

    In further research, I contacted my carrier (AT&T) and RIM technical
    support and product management and all 4 departments have
    confirmed that you, nor they, CAN NOT configure/edit your service
    book database because they are required applications to be sent to
    your device. So apparently, if you need to request the service books,
    you just simply go through this process to remove them again.


    Note: You can also just hide the icons if that is your preference.
    These are not applications, they are simply "links" or commands
    to your device that prompts it to perform certain actions through
    the network.

    For technical purposes, they take up very little memory and they
    use in total about 1RAM per action.

    I also want to try and put in a confirmation password 'BrickMyPhone' to confirm the 'Wipe Device' selection button. The password will be published on the button and in the help text. It is just that I do not want people accidentally bricking phones and losing all their personal data by accident.
    Pete,

    Maybe creating an "Advanced" tab/button
    for this would be good

    CrackMem v2.2 is now uploaded. I have added
    - remove tty (happy iamjoel5?)
    - added to help text
    - changed the look from vertical to horizonal panel to gove more space
    - fixed non-working Put It Back button

    Download it and use it as you wish.

    The main reason for 'going horizontal' was to get more space in the Select Module Removal panel.

    Right now there is room for one more but if I squeeze the items up vertically I could get a few more in.

    Not a bad idea. What would it do? More important, what would it reveal????

    This is good stuff Joel. If you hide the icon, do they just come back? They take up very little memory space because they are just icons and links, right?

    For "Wipe Device" and any other risky options
    I thought a lot before I put in Wipe Device. It finally got in for two reasons.

    - Sometimes it is neccessary to brick a phone in order to get a clean upgrade
    - When people need support sometimes their phones are in a real mess and I wanted one single program that could be used for support purposes.

    This is also why I have put in buttons to confirm choices complete with visial responses. A person needing support can now give positive responses. I pressed the big button and go this red message saying 8310_.... It makes it much easier for the guy trying to help.

    Now we have a single program that will carry out all the neccessary tasks in a way that a supporter can verify each stage.

    It is the nice friendly color for that reason too.

    If you check the help file now it gives full instructions for upgrading an OS.

    Ya pretty well, I updated the post with technical specs on their function in the "note:" section at the bottom.

    Note the Remove TTY - just for you.
    lol I noticed, I believe that has now become
    the most popular feature on the prog

    Disclaimer: This has nothing to do with Pete's program as far as I know. His program does exactly what it is advertised to do. Also, your mileage may vary..

    I just want to give you a heads up on a couple of extra steps that I had to take on my phone...
    (This is a 8130, OS 4.3 DM 4.5 on a Winxp machine..)

    When I pressed the "Desktop Manager" button, DM opened just as it should have, then checked for newer versions of software, then did nothing else. I had to:

    1) Open App Loader
    2) Choose the "Update Applications" option.
    3) Choose the "Advanced" button under the Device Application Selection heading.
    4) Click "Next"

    A menu then came up letting me know that the choices that I had made in CrackMem would be removed.

    G/L and happy Crackberrying!

    ps. Thanks Pete!

    Just so you know, the idea of the program is not to control the interface of DM, it's actually better that you did those steps yourself.

    You are correct, hence my disclaimer. These were just a few steps that were not in the "Help" section of the program that might help another n00b such as myself out.

    I have already integrated these words into the Help text of v2.3.

    I do not need to release 2.3 yet as there seems to be nothing wrong with 2.2 (fingers crossed).

    To make CrackMem run properly each time under Microsoft Vista you need to set the program set the program to always run as administrator. To do this, use the following steps:

    Right-click the program icon and click Properties.
    On the Property sheet, click the Compatibility tab.
    Under Privilege Level, select the Run this program as an administrator check box, and then click OK.


    Note the check in the Run this program as an administrator

    This only has to be done once per program.
