Default cod to remove preloaded wallpaper....

Please Login to Remove!

I read this on the free up memory post: http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ee-memory.html

"On Qwerty devices with OS 4.5 and higher:
net_rim_bb_medialoader_320x240_b.cod
_________________________________________

I have these cod's :
net rim bb medialoader 480x360 b.cod
net_rim_bb_medialoader_backgrounds_480x320_b.cod

Are these the ones I delete to remove the preloaded wallpaper?

Here's my .02 on deleting preloaded wallpaper, pix, and ringtones from the 8900: Don't waste your time. With the old Pearl/Curve models they had a lot less free memory than the 8900 (which has 130mb free vs 20-30mb). The wallpapers and stuff are so lo-res they don't take up hardly any memory at all, after you delete them you won't notice a thing honestly. I've heard of people bricking their phone because they removed a stock theme. Sure you can do it but you need to know how to get it back if you delete the wrong files and like I said you're wasting your time if you think your phone will be better afterward. I have 15-20 3rd party themes, and tons of apps and my phone runs as fast as the day I got it and I have 85mb free memory to boot.
Same with messing with the OS, ask yourself: Is there something in this new OS that will improve the performance of my phone (a feature, the phone crashing, a bug that I see, etc) and if the OS stinks do I know how to get the phone back the way it was? If either answer is NO think twice. I think a lot of people mess with the OS because they can, and like to experiment which is cool, but they usually know exactly how to deal with problems. I am not of the opinion that an OS can improve the battery life or stop "memory leak". Usually they say their phone is "snappier, smoother, faster" but what that is I don't know. I've done it to add video, bigger memory cards, use apps that require a different OS, etc. Maybe I just don't like fiddling!

Thx for the honest opinion...I was kinda wondering if it was even worth it myself.

To be safe, I only removed the file that has 'backgrounds' in the filename.

If ya just GOTTA have more file free, Raja_3012 (this forum) wrote a nifty little zip file (FreeMem_8900.zip) that I've run on my last two 8900 upgrades. It works. I get an extra 10 mb...but then, I'm a fanatic, and enjoy keeping the berry as lean as possible.
Anyway, there ya have it if ya need it.
