Deleting Factory Images
More information on this subject can be found here.

If after completing this tutorial, you are unable to access the pictures or ringtone directory check out this thread.

You'll need usbser.sys from this .zip file.

You will also need to download and install bitpim-0.72-setup.exe which can be found here.

First unplug the phone from the computer.

This may differ slightly depending on your operating system. I'm using Windows 2000.

You need to put usbser.sys from the .zip file (p2kman.zip) into this directory...
C:\WINNT\Driver Cache\i386

Now delete the file usber.sys from this directory...
C:\WINNT\system32\drivers

Finally put usbser.sys from the .zip file (p2kman.zip) into this directory...
C:\WINNT\system32\drivers

Reboot the computer.

Plug the phone in. Start bitpim. Go to edit and select settings. Make sure Phone Type is "Other CDMA phone.

All the way to the left of Com Port there is a Browse... button. Click Browse...

Choose the comm port for the Motorola Phone and click OK. Click OK for the BitPim Settings window.

Click on the Filesystem tab.

Click the little plus sign.

It should say retrieving.

Scroll down and click the little plus sign next to motorola. Click the plus sign next to shared then click the plus sign next to picture.

Delete the files you want to go bye bye.

Unplug the phone and reboot it.

When the phone turns on those annoying images that someone on crack must have picked out will be gone.

On my Motorola V710…In deleting the factory images (those stupid pictures that come with the phone)...I accidentally deleted (using BitPim) a file from the Motorola/shared/pictures directory that was semi-crucial. Now when I turn on the phone I see a white screen with some lines of garbage on the bottom. I have to close then reopen the phone to use it (this clears the screen). Could you tell me what this file was that I deleted?

I am asking for a list (or even better a link to) the "crucial files" that should be in the directory. An example is customer_opening.gif. There are others...


Any help would be much appreciated.
