    I cannot emphasise this enough. Back up your flash0 before even *thinking* of attempting this.

    What is basically removed is support for japanese/chinese/korean, which on a UK/EU/US psp is basically a waste of space.

    Code:
    \flash0
      --\dic              << Remove contents and replace with empty dic folder
      --\font
      ----\gb3s1518.bwfon << Replace with empty file with same name
      ----\jpn0.pgf       << Replace with a renamed copy of kr0.pgf
    Now I have 5.34MB free space on flash0, pleanty to get a really good custom theme in :)

    Mine doesn't do the same things as the other tutorials. I've not seen one yet that replaces gb3s1518.bwfon with a dummy file. The rest all copy another to go in its place, which isn't needed.

    Step 1: If you want Japanese/Korean/Chinese fonts, skip this step. For 99% of people this is the only step needed to be taken.

    Go to x:/font. Copy and paste ltn9.pgf twice, this makes two copies of the same file. Delete jpn0.pgf, and rename one of the copies to jpn0.pgf.

    Delete gb3s1518.bwfon. Rename the second copy of ltn9.pgf to gb3s1518.bwfon.

    You now have 2,545KB/~2.5MB more space on your flash0.

    This replaces the gb3s1518.bwfon with a copy of another, instead of a 0 byte dummy file. That thread also doesn't mention anything about the dic folder.

    Step 2:

    Dummying or deleting the dic folder. Delete the folder entirely,
    Or open each file with notepad, delete the contents and put a 0:
