    Hi CrackBerry.

    I strive on performance and would no anything to get my Berry running at optimal performance. I have used Shrink-My-Os and pretty much ticked off everything there besides BBM,DocsToGo, and SIM Card Capabilities.

    I've remained with the following files, and was wondering, with your expertise if you can take a look and recommend what files I can safely remove again.

    I don't use any default themes or ringtones.

    The list of files are to long to I've uploaded the file. If you can download it and take a look at it, I would appreciate it alot. The last time I tried this on my own, I ended up with just a white back ground with black writing. Could have barely seen anything :|

    Below is the link for the txt file. Thank you again!

    In addition to emarsha's list (which will recover a ton), of what is in your list
    I always get rid of these:

    net_rim_bb_memo_app.cod (Download and install BBNotepad. Stores memos to
    memory card instead of device memory)

    Any file ending with ko.cod,ro.cod, he_IL.cod, he_US.cod
    (These are non English languages)

    net_rim_DoDRootCerts.cod - unless you visit Dept of Defense sites often

    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_HK_Jyutping_shortcut s.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_norwegian_45k_2.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_norwegian_ltr.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_romanian_45k_2.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_romanian_ltr.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_swedish_45k_2.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_swedish_ltr.cod


    If you don't need the supplemental dictionaries for Medical, Legal, etc, you can remove these:
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_financial_english_10 k_2.cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_legal_english_10k_2. cod
    net_rim_tid_dynamic_ling_data_medical_english_35k_ 2.cod



    Telenav_v50_480x360.cod, Telenav_v50_480x360Lib.cod (If you use another
    GPS navigation app)

    If you don't use Documents To Go you can delete all the files for Docs2Go,
    Sheet2Go, Slideshow2Go and Word2Go.

    I don't know what country you are in or what your first language is, but there a lot of extra language files in your list. It looks like all of your native BB files, and your Docs to Go files, are in three languages: _en (English), and _ko (Korean?), and _ro (Romanian?). I don't think you can delete _en, however, even if English is not your primary language.

    Of course you will make a backup with Desktop Manager before you start deleting.

    Taking notes of all this. Will probably just make a script to remove all the files mentioned above.

    I will also check out bbnotepad. I tried out Lister but it did not have a backup option which sucked :s

    I will also make a script to remove all files ending in "ko.cod,ro.cod, he_IL.cod, he_US.cod" etc.
    I also use Docs2Go

    That won't help at all. What ttsoldier needs to do is move the files to another
    folder, that way if something goes off the rails he can just put them back and
    Application Loader in DM will restore them. Backup does not do that.

    Yes, I think it would make a good adjunct to the other "shrinking" tools.

    Indeed. Let me get it figured out first!

    Anymore files that can be safely removed? I see you mentioned supplemental dictionaries for Medical, Legal,. I don't use any kind of dictionary.
    I'm really trying to stream this down as much as possible. I don't use any sort of GPS but I'm guessing the Telenav_v50_480x360.cod,Telenav_v50_480x360Lib.cod will take care of that

    Based on the list you provided, I'd say what emarsha and I listed is about as much
    as I would be comfortable removing.

    The are a couple of files that are not in my OS so I can't advise whether to
    remove them or not.

    Telenav_v50_480x360.cod
    Telenav_v50_480x360Lib.cod

    It will also remove all files with__ko,__ro, __he,__en ,_en and _ko,_ro

    What will happen removing the en cod files? I have not tested it yet.

    The script is set to move the files to "C:\Removed" . So you can just make a folder named "Removed" on your C: drive, or you can edit it as you choose. The batch file also needs to be in the folder where the .cod files reside.

    Good work on the batch file soldier

    I have no idea about the _en.cod files. That is my primary so I have never considered
    removing it. God, it's times like this I wish I had a spare.

    Thanks. I won't try it until the next leaked OS anyway

    Maybe I should but it back.. I'm not sure.. I decided to remove it because , for example, there would be :

    net_rim_bb_appworld.cod
    net_rim_bb_appworld__en.cod

    I think, and don't quote me, you need English regardless of what your primary
    language is. Not sure why.

    The OS uses it to referr to internal components?

    Ok. I'll put back the _english.

    Since the official .656 was released yesterday,I think I'll test it on that ( even though I'm using the .656 beta and there is no difference xD ).

    I agree with amazinglygraceless, I'm not comfortable removing anymore than what I've done. I've removed the BBM5 files after fully knowing from loader which files to delete. You can try a "mock" load and when the list pulls up, you can further look at what cod files make up what apps. This is how I removed BBM5 from the .656 leak.
    If you were doing this because BBM being classified as a Core app would prevent you from Deleting from your device, there is another way too.

    If you download the current BBM from www.blackberry.com/messenger it will overwrite the OS's "Core version" and become an Add-On app, and therefore become deletable.

    Just a little FYI. Not everyone (or barely anyone) has the proficiency for safely editing the cod list, so this is a workaround if you don't want BBM.

    But seriously, why don't you want BBM?!?!?
    That's kah-wazy!

    I myself am not a fan of BBM5 and the newer OS force the BBM5 download. To get rid of these files after shrinking, I go into the java/loader files and remove those cod files as well. I launch loader and it's not part of the download list. Hope this helps a little. Im sure there are more you could delete, these are the ones I do myself.
    Hey Marsha,
    You should also check out this post by another user in the Leaked 656 thread:
    http://forums.crackberry.com/f95/lea...ml#post5083285

    It outlines how to change an app from being required to an app that you can un-check during the OS install.

    OS started off at 121.13MB.

    Shrink-A-OS took it down to 59.09

    Used my batch file to remove another 20mbs and took it down to 39.95.

    Just need to install it now..

    Here's the good part. Results

    After a wipe and install I had 150.4 MB of free application memory. That was partnered by a 56 second boot time.. ( I battery pulled about 3 times to make sure I was not dreaming.... I was not. )

    The following apps and my most recent backup were loaded onto my phone

    BBM
    FB
    MSN
    Berrybuzz
    Mobile Checkbook
    Capture it
    Shazam

    After a battery pull, I'm sitting comfortable on 140MB of memory. Reboot time went up to 83 seconds ( ) , but that's still better than the 2mXXsecond boot up from before.



    I'm a happy 9700 user

    Not new to 'Berries, but I am new to OS-shrinking. Just tried for the first time with 656 for the 9700, and decently happy with my results but I want MORE!

    I do have LOTS of apps, and do view attachments with Docs To Go, so I never have the amazing memory remainder that many post about.

    You must have really picked it clean w S-a-OS!

    What are you referring to by "Batch File"?
