Oh man, awesome thread! I'm still awaiting my BlackBerry Curve but was looking for a post like this ("What to do when setting up your BlackBerry for the first time!"). Thanks so much!

These are the two .cod's I've found in the GSM OS's.

net_rim_bb_media_tunebundles_sonicnetworks.cod
net_rim_bb_profiles_tunes_tunebundles_tunes8700g.c od

The names of the tunebundle files may vary on CDMA devices.

Removing these will leave you with no notifiers, as well....like for email, sms, etc.

WOW John, thanks SO much! That's kinda sorta what I suggested to you the other evening, but SO much more! VERY much appreciated!

One other question - what exactly does:

net_rim_bb_medialoader_video_83xx_320x240.cod @2,505KB

do, and what do I lose if I remove that one?

That's the sample video that can be removed using application loader. You can also remove that .cod, if you'd rather do it that way but there is a checkbox for the sample video. It would be nice if they had a checkbox for the wallpapers...

Ahh, thanks. Rats. Had already removed that via apploader some time back, thought I might be able to save some more space.

Thanks again - you're a great guy, no matter what those others say about you.

My application Loader only shows one item in the list (Facebook), so I can't get rid of:
All foreign languages.
Any preinstalled IM applications
Blackberry Sample Video
Brickbreaker
:(

Great write up John!

Happen to know the module names for TelNav, the AT&T crap that gets installed (ringtone downloads, game downloads) and voice recorder?

I was able to follow all the steps, but when it was time to run the Application Loader I couldn't finish, because I got the following error message:

The application "Browser" cannot be loaded because it requires the following applications that are not available: net.rim.blackberry.xml

I didn't delete any file by that name, and a search finds no such file anywhere on my system (not in Recycle Bin either), so I'm not sure what I did wrong. Somehow I managed to break something.

You edited your Blackberry.alx file wrong. Replace it with the original .alx file or go back to step #4 again to find your mistake.

I found it and corrected it. After that, it worked well. Thank you for the help.

I have a question regarding the preloaded themes. I have a TMO Curve, and I'm getting ready to customize the install to eliminate unwanted apps. Because I'm installing the .180 TMO update, I didn't change the "vendor.xml" file.

Given that my "vendor.xml" file is intact, do I still need to remove all the themes that correspond with the different vendor numbers (such as "net_rim_theme_102a_icon_320x240_b.cod")? Or will App Loader automatically ignore them?

Also, in addition to the other vendor coded themes, I have the following theme files:

net_rim_theme_100_320x240_b.cod
net_rim_theme_bbdimension_today_320x240_b.cod
net_rim_theme_bbdimension_icon_320x240_b.cod
net_rim_theme_bbdimension_zen_320x240_b.cod


The only theme I want remaining on my Curve is the T-Mobile Zen theme. I'm assuming that I would need to leave the "net_rim_theme_bbdimension_zen_320x240_b.cod" and the "net_rim_theme_100_320x240_b.cod" intact to only have that theme?


Also, I've seen some instructions that involve manually removing all the .cod language files before loading the OS onto the BB. Is that necessary? Or is the same thing achieved by simply not selecting those languages in the App Loader Wizard?

Thanks in advance. Still new to the BB experience and trying to figure this stuff out.

It seems that taking out the spell checker would also liberate some memory. Is this possible, or is it too deeply embedded?

Excellent!

Now, all I need is the guts (and the time) to run thru this and delete stuff I don't need.

THANK YOU!

Most of the answers to your questions are in my post.

The basic dimension themes can be deleted but many times other themes rely on them for operation so, if deleted, other themes you may install won't work. Give it a try. I recommend leaving them in for the first install. Then you can go back and remove them one at a time and see what happens. If you get a black and white home screen then you'll know you need to put them back.

Those are service books.

The voicenotes .cod can likely be removed if you don't use it but it doesn't take up that much space, really. (35KB)
