I bought HTC wildfire s a year ago in India because of its features but was unaware of the internal memory problem fact. HTC has given everything to it but internal memory. I got many problems because of low memory.Always had to clear data and uninstall apps which were needed as all other portion of internal memory was forcefully allotted to Google apps and other updates. So I wanted to delete the applications like plurk, peep, flicker and internet browser also.
The problem is the system is build on Linux kernel and it doesn't allow users to uninstall or move certain applications without superuser (administrative) privilege. So to get superuser access you will have to wait for your device to get out of warranty and then do the rooting or you can take risk but this will void your warranty.
My HTC Wildfire S current settings
I searched a lot and tried many things it took me 3-4 days but I finally changed my htc wildfire s A510e's configurations to its best. Now my phone has configuration like 806 MHz processor (over clocked) Internal Memory around 2.6GB which includes pre installed 150MB
I will explain how to get these exact super settings for htc wildfire s but first we need to increase some memory by simple methods.
