    << Complete noob!

    I am contemplating the very first tweaking of my BB and will be trying to upgrade a 4.5 Telus OS to a 5.0. I have noticed in posts that there may? be issues with this tool for 5.0.. yes? no?

    I tried shrinking my OS (8520 OS5.0.0.1067) the other day, and when I installed it on to my BB, BBM wasn't installed, and I didn't shrink it out.

    I shrink everything except BBM, MemoPad, Tasks, Gmail, Voice Notes Recorder, Default Ringtones, and English UK.

    I tried reinstalling the OS, checking all the BBM cods were there, then removed all bbm files with BBSAK and installing OTA from the BB site, and to no avail. I then replaced all the shrunk out files, reinstalled the OS without reshrinking, and then only it worked.

    The first time this happened with BB Boss Shrinker, but I could fix it with BBHybrids Tool (not sure which version it was). Now this is happening with BBHT, but I haven't tried fixing it with BBBS though.
    I've been using BBHT since it was called Shrink-a-OS, so I'm not sure if it was a new file that I removed that I wasn't supposed to, or what?

    Awesome leap forward !!

    Great progress on the PlayBook tab. I won't be able to use it, due to the lack of a PB, but I'm sure it works just fine !

    Keep it up. We might even see a ota downloader which accepts all links
    Just kidding, like I said...a job well baked !

    Is it possible for the tool, when creating the third party backup jads, to include the rim cod size line for all the cods?

    They dont work when trying to install them on device because that line is missing on all the jads.

    It does have these lines, but the way its done doesn't work correctly when installed via media card. I will be looking into a fix for this next version

    I will investigate this ASAP. [edit: FIXED]

    Sorry man but you need to know the ugly true so that you can fix the issues.Ialways appreaciated the functionality of the BB Hybrid tool but not this time!
    I have spent the last 2 hours moving CODs and Alx back and foward because something is messed up
    Plus as the guy said below the put back option doesn't work at all as the alx wont go back or even worse will go into the java folder.
    Languages get removed without having flagged the ceckbox and worst of all the app seems to remove something it shouldn't so you get both 602 or varoius uncaught exceptions, ringtones,music and default videos don't get removed as well.
    I never had this issues with OS 6 as the app worked perfectly please I am advising you to fix it ASAP.
    PS this is happening with your latest build which has not fixed the problem at all....

    Thank you in advance

    Regards
    Which language gets removed when you don't check it? Please give me an example that I can work with, not just a broad statement. I've never had issues with the languages. Put It Back will be looked at, it has worked previously, so shouldn't be a hard fix. [edit: FIXED] Did you also remove Voice Activated Dialing? thats most likely what caused your error 602. It has been said that you can't shrink it out of OS7, but it seems some people can. (Carrier related maybe?)

    One tip for you when you shrink fonts( i only keep times new roman) the latin true type gets deleted from there app error 602. As you well know the net_rim_font_latin_truetype.cod is part of the core OS, therefore it cannot be deleted.
    yes it can be deleted. It will remove the default font, which will be replaced with a system font. I tested this before releasing.

    I just saw it now.....- Added shrink items: Croation (Languages), Latin Truetype(Fonts), PDFToGo (DocsToGo).
    You have done it on purpose :O as a hybrid builder don't you knowthat latin cannot be deleted??It's the browser default font
    lots of people will get mad lol
    try clicking the button and see that it says a message:

    "This is the default BlackBerry font. Removal may result in undesired effecs. Are you sure you would like to remove the Latin Truetype font?"

    Chances are you clicked Select All, which doesn't seem to show this message. That I can fix. [edit: FIXED]

    I do kinda know what I'm doing...


    Anybody else getting a timeout when clicking on DL on the bbh website?
    might be an issue with the site, is it still occurring?

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I will be working on a minor update to address the issues above

    ::EDIT: I'm not having any issues with Put It Back, @tryfe what is it saying/doing? I've corrected the files that do no get restored: BackupAssistant_v61.alx, some of the vvm files, as well as the .alx files that do not go back to the correct folder

    I'd shrink out whatever & then put it back. Either the .alx files would remain in the Removed folder or get moved to the Java folder. Also, i've been able to shrink out Voice Activated Dialing with no issues on my 9930.

    EDIT: It's only certain .alx files...not all of them.

    Thanks for the quick response - was this for all .alx files? I have now recognized that some of the .alx files dont go to the correct folder - got it fixed already

    Hm, I've had many users that have messaged me RE: shrinking VAD causing an error - wonder if thats a carrier thing or what

    Just selected to shrink everything and put it all back....

    Here's what left in the RemovedFiles folder:
    BackupAssistant_v61.alx
    DocumentsToGo.alx
    net_rim_platform_resource__vi__MultiTap.cod

    Here's the .ALX files placed in the Java folder:
    CMRead_v60.alx
    LunarCalendar_v50.alx
    MobileMarket.alx
    Music_v60.alx
    net_rim_bb_appworld.alx

    Yup got em all nailed now this was caused by my use of wildcards without a file extension [for those that care ] which caused any .alx that had the same name as the .cod was being moved into Java folder

    Just selected to shrink everything and put it all back....

    Here's what left in the RemovedFiles folder:
    BackupAssistant_v61.alx
    DocumentsToGo.alx
    net_rim_platform_resource__vi__MultiTap.cod

    Here's the .ALX files placed in the Java folder:
    CMRead_v60.alx
    LunarCalendar_v50.alx
    MobileMarket.alx
    Music_v60.alx
    net_rim_bb_appworld.alx
    net_rim_bb_dryad.alx
    net_rim_bb_podcasts.alx
    net_rim_bb_youtube.alx
    SlackerRadio_v70.alx
    changes so far:

    - Fixed warning messages that show for Latin Truetype (Default font) and Ringtones
    - Fixed items that were not getting put back when using Put It Back

    I'm sure there's a good chance I'm just completely useless :/ but... on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32bit I cannot for the life of me use the Create-A-Jad :|
    It will not allow me to drag and drop cods or alx or well... anything. When I'm dragging cods into the box (where it specifically says to drop them into) my cursor goes into a circle with a line through it (the same "oh no you don't" cursor you'd get if you tried to drag and drop something to the system clock in the windows taskbar)

    Also if I use the "Add .COD Files" button, it will indeed create a jad for me, but not one I can use to install apps. It will throw the following error:

    "Error: Invalid manifest or applications descriptor.

    The "RIM-COD-Size" attribute is missing."

    Hm, not sure why it wouldn't allow you to drag/drop - have you tried this:
    right click .exe, click Run as Admin? also do you have .net framework 3.5 or higher installed?

    Those are the only few things I can personally think of that may be causing that issue - if anyone else has some insight, feel free to throw it in here

    in regards to the .jad it creates - are you trying to install it via sd card? it will work OTA (hosted online somewhere) but won't work via sd card (an issue that I'm working on, explained why it happened a few posts ago - will repost )

    It does have these lines, but the way its done doesn't work correctly when installed via media card. I will be looking into a fix for this next version
    To further explain (I thought my explanation explained it better than it does ) when installing from the sd card, its expecting a:

    RIM-COD-Size: #####
    RIM-COD-URL: file.cod

    but the way its created currently, it begins as:

    RIM-COD-Size-1:
    RIM-COD-URL-1:

    skipping the required/expected one above - although it works fine OTA

    sorry, i missed the little line about not working on SDcard hah. I'll set up apache on my box and check the OTA in a lil bit. But, apart from that i still cannot drag and drop, i have .NET Framework 4 Client Profile and .NET Framework 4 Extended (both are version 4.0.30319) installed according to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features. And i've right clicked and run as admin :/
