That's an OS 4.3 issue where the About screen won't come up.

Just did this process - thanks so much, John Clark! I now have over 27 megs free (I kept the BB Messenger, AIM and Google Chat, but got rid of everything else). Awesome!

You had to have missed a step in there somewhere. Go back and go through each step and make sure you didn't miss anything.

Are you going all the way through the Application loader until it says Finished?

Make sure vendor.xml is deleted.

make sure the files you are moving are from the proper OS folder. The OS version folder should match the OS on your device.

Make sure you are moving the files and not copying the files.

The instructions seem simple enough, but for a new guy with little experience doing this sort of thing, what are the chances that I will destroy my pearl?

There is little chance you will destroy it, unless you hammer it with a brick, with is not in the instruction list

John's instructions are fairly foolproof and specific as to what to do. Following the instructions exactly as written lessen your chances of any problems. John Clark is an aircraft pilot... he is, shall we say, sorta used to following checklists to the 't', and his instructions on this forum normally follow that high degree of exactness.

However, if you were to freeze it or not succeed in rebooting, there are wipe and restore applications for that purpose.

As always, backup your current device before doing any OS adjustments, upgrades or reloads.

And, always at your own risk (of course, you've got 150,000+ members here to back you up if you need assistance).

Good luck!

Thanks, I think that I will go for it. Before I saw this post I was wondering how to get rid of applications such as push to talk, which as I'm sure you are aware, AT&T wants even more money for me to use.

I followed the directions (which were great, by the way) and everything is working well. I just have one question. When removing the pre-installed wallpapers, are these the pre-installed pictures? I removed net_rim_bb_media_240x260_b.cod and the pictures and different folder icons are still there. I tried removing my battery to reset my pearl to see if that would work, with no luck. Any suggestions, or am I looking in the wrong area?

You can choose not to install those in Application Loader. There's no need to delete them from the java folder.

DO NOT DELETE cldc.cod

Talking Yay!

Thanx JC,

I've been wondering on how to get my OS on the computer and freeing up those locked wallpapers and PTT. Doing that gave me 10Mbs free memory! Totaling 28MB free now. AWESOME!!

As simple and easy to follow as John's instructions are it's way more complicated and difficult sounding/reading then the process actually was

I started off with ~19 megs free.

First I opened the media application and changed "reserved pictures memory" to 0M and freed up ~1+meg.

Next under settings/advanced/applications I deleted the sample video for another ~2+ megs.

Now I had around 23megs free.

I already had Desktop manager installed so I installed the OS to the Desktop Manager per John's instructions. (Didn't do the OS install at first and spent about 15 minutes wasting my time looking around the DM software not finding what I needed). After loading the OS it was as simple as unchecking all of the extra languages and removing Bb Maps and after all was said and done I now have 35+ megs free, with Pipes, Google Maps,Opera Mini, BBWeather, Berry411, uNyverse, and a 400k Theme installed. I'm thinking I should alsp delete the Help application too but I'm happy with my free space so far.
