    I am running .151 and after 3 battery pulls I boot up with 26mb of memory. ** are u guys getting 40+?

    How do I remove all the apps I don't use like flier and facebook and aol I'm etc. I am guessing these unused apps r my problem.

    Thanks

    If you haven't installed them, they're more than likely just links that take you to the download page for them. Flickr, facebook, and such are pushed to your phone regardless, so they can't be deleted. Just hide them and such.

    As for getting memory so high, I know by taking out certain language.cods and other useless .cod's you can get more memory.

    Search for "Shrink an OS" that program will do what you need it to do.

    Yeah, I would go with the Shrink route. Removing the actual .cod's and such is for someone who really understands the files considering that it could ruin your phone, and cause you to do an entire reinstall of the OS

    Thanks guys.

    Can I do the .151 install again if I have that already or do I need to downgrade first.

    To reinstall the same OS you will need to do a wipe. Why do you need to reinstall your OS?

    well i was wondering how so many people boot up woth 40+ mb of memory and i only get 26mb. someone earlier mentioned to use shrink-a-os to remove unwanted language.cods and other apps and that will help.

    is there another way of doing this?

    If you remove unnecessary applications your memory should increase. I was once at 26 mb as well. Shrink an OS will do that for you but I've never used it.

    Installing the OS will not give you the great memory, only removing unnecessary applications. I had no difference at all in my memory going from .148 to .151.

    thanks. but how do i uninstall the applications. not all the apps are listed in the options. i guess i have to use Shrink-A-OS to remove the apps before i install the os. and since i am already on .151 i have to do it again to use shrink-a-os right?

    Booting up with +40 megs does have a limited effect if your memory drops to less than 10 megs after 10 minutes use.

    Shrink-a-OS makes it really easy. After SaOS does it's thing, you click on the Launch Loader.exe button and you will have the option to delete additional applications that are on your phone.

    I already had .151 installed when I did a shrink. It reduced the size of my os by half and I left some things on that I could have taken off.

    so u did the shrink then used apploader.exe again to load .151 over your previous .151?

    what did you app memory go to?
