Deleting Sprint Programs in Reg Ed.

Technically, can I just go to the source and delete all programs that I don't want and then delete the corresponding icons? I would imagine that some programs are related and their deletion might affect other programs from running correctly.

I wanna delete:
  • Getting Started
  • Help
  • Instant Messaging
  • Internet Sharing
  • Messenger
  • Pocket Express
  • Software Store
  • Sprint Music
  • Sprint Navigation
I never ever use these...not even on my Mogul. Those should free up a decent amount of space. I just wanna fire form the hip and delete them with PHM Reg Ed. Good idea?

A simple educated "yes" or "no" is all I need.

By removing the registry keys and the icons, I cannot see how you are going to save any space on your device. The real space is allocated to the cab files (most of which are in the rom) and also in the files for help, etc.

So my answer is no. It is not worth the large risk with such a small gain.

That's the answer I was looking for.

Re: Deleting Sprint Programs in Reg Ed.

yep, opera doesn't install when you do that, but then again neither does all of the bloatware. The diamond has plenty of program space though so I'm not trippin and I am switching to a touch pro next month

Re: Deleting Sprint Programs in Reg Ed.

Actually if you stop Sprint customizations from running at first startup (soft reset before the end of the 3 second countdown) then you can manually install of the Sprint customizations that you want. They are all in cab files located in /device/windows/.

Then, if you want, you can install them all to the internal storage card and save a lot of space on your Diamond's precious (and small) main storage.

The Sprint stuff in /device/windows/ is as follows:

SprintTV-1_6_Diamond_1034_072908a.CAB
sprint-navigation-htc-diamond-2.1.7.cab
SprintDM_DMClientApp_ProdSetting_v0.9.913.CAB
PictureMail_0.1.14.4.cab
OzIM_080521_signed.cab
EngStartMenu_Sprint0613.cab
WM6_PPC_HTC_Opera9_WWE.CAB
