    I took out all the en.lproj files sans the one I said to leave and I'm still fine. Rebooted mulitple times and it's still straight.

    As long as you're on a fresh restore I'd say try it again, just be real careful.

    Try SBSettings and the "Free up memory" button.
    I get ~45mb before pressing and after I get 60mb
    I would do this but I don't have a 'Free up memory button' and (don't tell anyone) I can't find out how to get it

    It's in the processes part of SBSettings right under the list of processes running.

    I knew that really (he lied)!
    Just done that and I now have a massive 46Mb free... that's with just the phone running. Down to 38Mb with mail running as well.

    This is what I'm afraid of

    So basically if I understand correctly for people wanting to delete all other languages aside from English - keep the English.projl folder and delete every other one ending in .projl?

    That free up memory thing is pretty neat. I'm seeing some huge fluctuations in the amount of available memory. I haven't installed/removed any applications since removing the .lproj files but I've seen the available memory down to 120MB just when my phone is idling. A restart or better yet the free up memory takes care of it.

    Yea that's pretty much it. Keep English.lproj and any other languages you are fluent in and delete the rest. As noted there are 30 folders total for all of the default applications. If you're going to do it manually just double check the folder count. WinSCP lets you know how many files/folders you are about to delete before you do.

    I did this and all was fine after a respring. However once I rebooted it wouldnt turn back on. I think I know what the problem is for those who have reboot problems. As someone mentioned, there are 30 total languages, so that means if you leave only the English, you're deleting 29 languages. Each time I deleted winscp would show "delete 29" or something like that. However one time it said "delete 30" and I didnt pay attention and deleted 1 extra thing. That was what messed me up. In between the language folders I saw some "support" folders, and other folders that were mixed in but not languages. So that is the problem for everyone who messed up. When deleting make sure you see "29" things get deleted, if any more you are deleting something wrong!

    On another note. Did anyone backup all the files in the system/library/privateframeworks and the system/library/frameworks ?? I messed up in one of those folders.

    I backed up everything as I went. I'm running a 2g on 3.0FW, so if my stuff would match up with yours, I'll be happy to email/rapidshare/whatever some of my backed up files to you. If I can send you something that'll help, shoot me a private message.

    Alright I've went through and done everything as stated, heres to a clean reboot *fingers crossed* and more memory free! If all goes well, to those that need folders if JamesRiot doesnt get you I should be able to cover u

    Everything went good for me, but cant really say I notice any improvement in memory im usually around 160

    Does it at least make things snappier (or is it specific to memory)? Hows the actual process make things faster?

    Yeah, I don't really notice a huge improvement in memory, but I think things open up faster now. :/

    Word, things do seem snappier. Isnt it to bad after doing all this 3.0.1 is released? yawn

    ^Yes, but odds are it's about 99.3% similar in 3.0.1. This being said, I must say I haven't looked at 3.0.1 yet.
