Here's the process I went thru:
- Extract ROM
- Extract IMGFS
- convert IMGFS to dump
- convert dump to packages
- delete IR packages
- compress Office executables using UPX
- compress Adobe Reader LE using UPX
- convert back to dump
- convert back to IMGFS
Here's the lowdown:
IMGFS before: 60.62 MB
IMGFS after: 54.91 MB
As you can see, this gives us over 5.5MB to play with in IMGFS. We can't unfortunately 'reclaim' this space (at the moment at least), but we can use it for other things. I'm thinking that by moving the stuff that's in EXTROM at the moment (i.e. installed at first boot) here, we can gain that space so we should have a bit more 'Storage Memory' free at startup. That won't use the whole 5.5MB, so we can potentially drop something else useful in ROM, maybe Opera and a couple of other must have apps.
Sadly, this is all theory at the moment because i'm not brave enough to do the flash until a Wing RUU comes out and I have a recovery strategy... so let's hope one surfaces soon and we can get this done!
