    There are so many system files that need to stay on or it won't function properly. but I was looking for a list like this few months ago when I shrank the OS and made the playbook a little more snappier!

    Interesting... so, what does on use to shrink the playbook OS?

    It was easy with BBOS... but I haven't dived into shrinking playbook OS or BB10...

    Simple. First, wipe your playbook. Then , after the wipe and during the setup process, you'll be offered an update. REFUSE THE UPDATE. Then, once your setup is complete, you'll be left with a Playbook with only the Browser app. Now, sideload only those system apps that you want and use. The result will be a playbook that boots up faster and has more free ram

    I had so much issue with email due to intro of google 2step verification... and yahoo asking for password every min... i did a clean wipe and now all working perfectly... except for the browser which always have security messages and very slow loading time... probably i will do another clean wipe and dont install the updates... it amazes me how my 5 year old playbook receives emails on the spot when my other phone receives email notification few min later...

    That's what I thought, but I haven't had too many issues with my PlayBook since it still does what I need it to.

    Interesting. I look at the list and I would think I would need everything except for the language packs aside from English. Not much savings. D'oh.

  13. nealjane's Avatar
    Thanks for these, I'm half tempted to have a go at this as its sitting unused mostly, if it was a bit quicker I might use it a bit more, apart from booting quicker does it make much difference ?
    (I've already del the language packs) and I hate having apps that don't work sitting there installed (YouTube.. Etc) which is probably a bit ocd tbh.

    Contemplating letting kids use it in car for videos/ emulators den/doom/games, from past experience it's always gotten really slow the more I've installed on it (64gb, but not full)- any ideas why??

    so may just delete -
    all bridge stuff/text/bbm as I've moved from my z10 to android (sad day but lack of native Facebook/messenger app and what'sApp was the end for me),
    print to go,
    bing maps,
    video chat,
    File manager - it's just useless!
    Voice notes,
    Music store,
    Would dump android too but I need it for ghost commander to connect to my has - any native alternatives anyone know of??

    Yes. And there are two bars you need to run android apps- android and shell.

    Video chat is not listed above. It should be videochat- I couldn't find it on the BB CDN site, but my camera is dead on my playbook anyway.
