    Default Guide: Remove stuck installer files from memorycard/phone memory

    • Delete stuck installer files from memory card (no hack needed)

    Your application manager may contain references to .sis files which are not installed and which can not be removed. This can happen if a program fails to install, or if you reset your phone. To get rid of these stuck installers, you'll need to remove them manually.

    You'll need access to your memory card from your computer by bluetooth, USB cable, or card reader.

    1) Connect your phone to your computer in data transfer mode (a.k.a. mass storage). Do NOT choose PC Suite mode.

    2) Tell your computer to show hidden files and folders.

    3) Navigate to \private\10202dce on your memory card and remove the .sis files that appear as "not installed" in the application manager.


    • Delete stuck installer files from memory card or phone memory (for hacked phones)

    Your application manager may contain references to .sis files which are not installed and which can not be removed. This can happen if a program fails to install, or if you reset your phone. To get rid of these stuck installers, you'll need to remove them manually.

    You'll need a hacked phone and a Symbian file manager like Active File or X-plore.

    1) Make sure your phone is hacked and "caps" are disabled.

    2) Use a Symbian file manager like Active File or X-plore to navigate to C:\private\10202dce (phone memory) or E:\private\10202dce (memory card) and remove the .sis files that appear as "not installed" in the application manager.


    Recover 5 MB of internal phone memory (for hacked phones)

    there is a 5 MB placeholder file called reserved.bin. This space is only used if you do an "over the air" firmware update. If you update your phone from your computer, you don't need this file and you can delete it to gain five extra megabytes of phone memory.

    You'll need a hacked phone and a Symbian file manager like Active File or X-plore.

    1) Make sure your phone is hacked, "caps" are switched off.

    2) Use a Symbian file manager like Active File or X-plore and navigate to C:\Private\102072c4.

    3) Delete the file reserved.bin.

    4) Make an empty text file called reserved.bin and drop it into C:\Private\102072c4.

    if the phone says any error regarding memory consumption, like "out of memory" or "phone mem full", believe me the 5MB will be your greatest gift from heavens
