phone storage memory

The other day i tried to load up a program but it couldn't load up because my storage memory was EXTREMELY low. I only had .91mb available!!! I used cleartemp to free up some space and removed some programs so i have only the necessary programs that i use, but still I only have bout 21mb free.

My question is how do i remove some of the programs that came on the stock rom? I know i can flash to custom rom, which i have, but it just not for me. Programs such as Pocket Express, Software Store, Sprint Navigation, and Sprint Music are ones that i never use. Is it possible to remove these programs, and would it free up much space?

Thanks for all who help on here! This site is the shizzle and the number one site for my diamond

well, one thing you can do is flash the stock rom in this thread: half way down.

How To's: Unlocking, Relocking, Flashing, Dumping and Troubleshooting

this rom is not the shipped rom but it exactly the same, minus the radio flash and it has more memory available at boot up than the shipped rom does that came with the device. I gather they took out a couple things that were useless to free up the memory. I dont think it possible to remove sprint nav or music from the rom manually. But you can remove the touch manual (not sure if this the exact title) which will free up 4 mb. You can search this up in the forums; I think you need to go into file explorer>windows and delete it there. One other thing, the stock rom is based off the original shipped rom (19965), no the new shipped rom (20764) but not sure if this matters to you. Good luck.

edit: one more thing, make sure to move your Opera cache from device memory to internal. will save you a ton of memory. if you need instructions, let me know. well I was bored, here they are

here are instructions to move the opera cache to internal storage.

1. open opera, clear out the address bar and type opera:config, hit enter
2. on the next page, scroll down to user prefs, select it
3. scroll down to cache directory4, change \windows\ to \internal storage\ (just change this part only).
4. scroll to the very bottom, hit save and wait for it to save. then exit opera.

when you open opera now, all cache will be saved to your internal storage. there will be a folder called opera9 listed now. additionally you can install cleartemps which you can use to free up cache for various programs including opera, ie, livesearch, googlemaps, etc. good luck.

yes, they put in the new s2answer which is nice. New opera 15954 compared to 15306. new sprint tv as well. tf3d is faster as well. couple other things. Just one problem with the new shipped rom. it has the text freezing problem that has plagued many roms 20xsys and up. it will sometimes freeze for a few seconds when you are trying to type. annoying and surprising to say the least considering sprint put it out But overall its an improvement over the original shipped rom.

Re: phone storage memory

Move some of your programs to your micro sd card if you haven't already done so.

Another killer: the storage for e-mail.

expanding on that.. not just the attachments be sure you have your email data on your storage card too... I use sktools to move all of these things around.. including a lot of GAC dlls that gave me 10mb back.

I also used the upx compression tool (squeezer) last night to compress nearly all my exe's to give me another 5mb. (thanks Darren for helping me find it again!) With this the programs open faster, not necessarily run faster, but the bigger thing is it gives me back some space! I was at 21mb before compressing about 20exes now have 30.8.
