    OK, I've had to rewrite this post up because people just don't grasp the idea here, so I'm making it as basic and simple as possible.

    1) Install the new OS exe on your PC.
    2) Go to C:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\ResearchInMotion\Share d\LoaderFiles\Your OS\Java Folder
    3) Delete net_rim_bb_medialoader_backgrounds_360x480_t.cod and net_rim_bb_medialoader_360x480_t.cod files.
    4) Load the OS onto your phone.

    If you're just reloading the same version OS your phone once you've done this (after a wipe), be aware that the sample images may still remain on the phone, but the additional 5MB of space will be available to you. This is normal. The only correct way to make sure the images are gone is to change OS versions. Again, if no change in OS version happens, expect the pics to still be listed under Sample Images.

    So I tried this using DM. I never had a problem removing the junk from my Pearl. But I can't seem to remove them on the storm. I deleted the file from the java folder. DM told me it was removing the files. But when I go to the pictures/samples, they are still there.

    If you go to Media > Pictures, there should be a sample pictures folder with files that can be set as the wallpaper.

    JavaLoader returns an invalid handle error, so apparently it doesn't exist. I can't find the module under the handset's applications list either, but yet I still have sample pictures. Your phone had that .cod file on it? What platform is your phone running?

    Do a battery pull afterwards. That should clear the media cache for the files.

    I would do a javaloader -u dir and check that it's not there. Also, make sure you specify the .cod extension on the delete command. Dropping that off will cause the filename not to match up since javaloader wants an exact filename.

    and if we are on a mac?
    You're screwed because you can't use javaloader without a DOS prompt. You could always run Windows in Parallels and do it that way.


    For everyone else, the FAQ section of the CB forums has instructions on how to use javaloader and other BB utils to accomplish this type of stuff. I suggest spending a bit of time reading through those threads because if you don't know how to do this... you're probably not ready to try to do it.

    Exactly.... but in reality, you can't brick a BB, not with what's easily available to the average user. They just freak out when they see a 507 error and come here screaming for help.

    Thanks civic...

    .
    I ran that, output it to a text file, and searched... nothing there.
    Anything else it might be called?
    Also, the biggest file I can find is net_rim_theme_precision_zen_360x480_t
    But I'm not about to delete the only theme i have.

    OK here it is. Simple way to delete sample pictures.

    media>menu key>explore>system>samples>pictures>menu key>delete

    This will delete all the sample pictures.

    When you go back to media>pictures you will see sample pictures folder but its empty now

    is this file stored in RAM for some reason? Wouldnt it be stored in the 1GB of onboard storage?

    If its in the 1GB i am gonna keep it. but if its ram, i think thats crazy and will delete it.

    Also, what else goes in RAM and storage? what do you have 1gb of storage for if it doesnt store pictures and email there?

    Dont go into pictures folder, just highlight it and you will see delete option.

    These sample pictures are stored in System memory. Where you do

    media>menu key>explore

    you will see 3 flolders

    1) Media card (8G)
    2) Device memory (1G)
    3) System (100Mb?)
