What is taking up the space?  I suggest that if it is data (e.g. mp3 or video data), that you do not include these in the application, but download them to the SD Card.

Re: cod size about 10-11 mb

Note the following from the KB article:

 

"The limit for the number of sibling COD files that can exist within a single application is 127.  This means that the maximum theoretical size limit for an application would be 16256 KB, which consists of 8128 KB of application data and 8128 KB of resource data.;..."

 

So, 8Mb resource data, tops.....

 

11 MB is a lot of space to take up in the BlackBerry Application space too.  I certainly would not install an application that took up that much space.  I need it for emails.

 

If you really want to have it as an application, then I'm sure you can do something with a second application - perhaps a Library.  But don't ask me how to extract the files, I have no idea.
