I followed the steps accordingly to clear up some space on my AT&T Curve 8310.

When the device booted up, the vanilla theme was used in absence of the AT&T theme, which I had removed.

I left the BB Dimension L theme for me to use, but when I go into the options, I am unable to select it.

The camera no longer works, either. The device displays:

"Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again."

It also shows that there is only enough space for 12 pictures, which was what the camera application displayed prior to the memory optimization.

I am using the Vodafone 4.5.0.37 OS.

First of all, Awesome guide!

Just one concern...

I'm trying to go through the steps, however I can't even make it past Step 2.

I can install my Desktop Software fine, but when I go to download my OS package, I select my carrier and it gives me the exact same file I just installed? Huh? Do I need to run that same file over the first installation? Is the OS in that second file?

It's 5:42 AM...maybe I'm misreading something... /sigh

BB 8330 on the Telus Mobility network.

No, it should be two separate files. One is "Desktop Manager" and one is handheld Device software".

Oh wow...

Yep, was definitely suffering from early-morning-way-too-tired symptoms.

Downloading the handheld software now.

Sorry for the trouble, and again, wicked guide!

No, only unlocking will unlock your BB. Check the link in my signature for a great deal on unlocking your BB.

I uninstalled a lot of the unnecessary items as you suggested above. My BB boots up more quickly. However, I have a password on the BB. When I try to unlock it, the "unlock" field comes up, however, I can not type anything into it.

I've gone back and tried to install one by one the items I took out, however it still doesn't seem to be working. I can, however, type the password into the application loader so that I can keep trying. What did I do incorrectly?

Wondering if I screwed something up. I see the themes as being available on my device, but it booted up with the theme to:NONE it looks super retro and is awesome but.. I would like my theme support back. I was wondering if in deleting all of the _vendorID="***" parts I messed something up.

I also removed the pre-installed wallpapers

blackberry 8310 ATT.
I'm looking into it just wondering if anyone had a similar experience

Edit:
I downloaded the Bphone theme from rogersmj.com and it will not show up on my theme list after a hard reset. I must have deleted something important.

Edit:
Apparently deleting the net_rim_theme_dimension_zen theme breaks the plazmic theme support for the whole phone. Upon re installation of it I have working themes again.

Default Thank you

Thank you JC for this awesome guide. I've used it more than once to install /update on a few BBs, but never got around to thank you for all the work you put in to make this guide and the help it provides to all of us.
